Rallying ahead

We are learning to play tennis with Kiwisport this term. Now that we're able to smash those forehands around the hall, we're learning how to hit a backhand. We're hoping that the weather is kind so that we can practise our skills outside on the courts next week.

Life Education

Lynn and Harold have been visiting Pt England School over the last three weeks and it was our turn to hang out in the Life Education caravan for a second time this afternoon. Lynn asked us to think about the kind of decisions we have to make and how other people may feel based on what we say and do.  She showed us some cool videos to help us think about making appropriate choices and decisions as we go through Years 5 and 6.

Guardians of the Galaxy: where do we begin?

What cosmic fun was had by Team 4 at our Immersion Day yesterday! This fabulous opportunity allowed us to explore what life is like for those who venture into space. Everyone had a chance to hear from a space expert via an audio link and learn about gravity while exercising at space bootcamp. After watching a couple of videos about preparing lunch on the International Space Station, it was time to sample some food that an astronaut might eat. It was pretty tricky trying to catch that floating dessert!
