A few weeks ago we went for a FANTASTIC trip down to the Pt England Reserve.
All of Point England School walked down to Point England Reserve.We also had a picnic there too.Some teachers went down to the reserve on their cars.
We also played some COOL games.I played rugby,touch,helled and I played on the playground.We were suppose to have a picnic last year but it got cancelled off because of the rain.There was lots of games played.
We were allowed to have a swim if we wanted too.I didn't want a swim because i didn't feel like one.If you wanted to go for a swim you had to wait for you turn.Mr Burt Will call out your team number then you could go for a swim but if he didn't then you couldn't yet.Some of the adults had to be in a U in the water.They were in a U because they can protect the children in case they drown.Mr Burt did a handstand in the water.He did it for long.He could stay under the water for long.
There were singing too.Heaps of songs were played.Heaps of people were lining up to sing.They played one of my favourite songs.It was called With You by Chris Brown.That is such a cool song.I didn't want to sing though.
I felt very Excited and Happy.

The Pt England Way

Hi my name is Destiney and I am a year five at Pt England School in Glen Innes. I am in Room 15 and my teacher's name is Ms Squires.
We have been learning about the Pt England Way. We have also been learning about caring for other people. Our symbol Captain Caring from the Pirates of the Caribbean.
There are lots of ways of caring. There are heaps of things you could do that show that you care for other people; you could be friends with other people and do something nice for someone.
We are also learning about the Treaty of Waitangi. The Treaty of Waitangi is an agreement between the Maori people and the queen. The treaty got signed in 1840. The treaty is important to our classroom because we are making our own treaty for our classroom. The treaty is also important to our history and country. The 3ps are Participation,Partnership,Protection. They are what makes up the treaty.
Our focus question is this term is “How can the 3ps help us to be happy, safe and successful.”
We have also been looking at setting goals for ourselves. My goal is to get better at my divison and timetables.
