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!

Guardians of the Galaxy

Earlier in the year we learnt about Kaitīakitanga i nga wā kātoa, being guardians of everything around us. This term we are exploring being Guardians of the Galaxy: What makes earth habitable? What's out there in space? Are there any planets that could support human life? So many questions and so much to learn about!

Pump House Trip - by Donte

On Monday reading support went on a trip to the pump house. me and my friends were playing chatter box. And also we went past the city and over the harbour bridge.  when we got to the pump house, there were other schools there.  we had our own lunch then we went in the pump house. there was a house on the stage then we sat on the chairs then it started there was a teenage boy and his mum and dad. then there were pirates and they were having a pirate party then the pirate captain  shot his gun then fire works shot out of his gun. then all the pirates went to his house. when his mum and dad were at dinner then they were driving back from dinner. they went inside their house and there were pirates in there house. then we did a dance and then it was the end.
