Room 10 - Participating in all school activities is important!

At the beginning of the term, Mrs. Nirmala our teacher made us take lots of tests to find out what we know and what we need to learn further. Our topic for this term was “Water”. We have been learning about how water is the most essential part of our life, how we are using it and how some people not taking care of this important resource that is needed for all on earth.

In order for us to learn in a better way, we are grouped for Reading, Writing, Numeracy and Maths. Learning stuff in statistics and algebra was fun. In English we have been reading and writing narratives. We enjoyed working in groups on character analysis, setting of the story, plot and various other aspects of narratives. We did proper letter writing and also worked on recount writing. In social studies we learnt about the significance of the Treaty of Waitangi.

At PYCC we enjoyed the organised sports. We also went swimming so that we can have the necessary skills to survive in water. We have had house sport every Friday and fitness on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We like our syndicate singing. The songs we sing are very nice and we love singing in harmony. Some of our class students are in Choir while some are in school sports like Rugby, Soft ball and Netball. We are all learning to participate in every activity offered by our teachers.

Once a term, we are the duty class. We take care of the rubbish around the school and arrange the hall for singing and assembly. We also take notices to all the classes.

We have done alright till now and we have enjoyed our first term at this school. We are looking forward to learning new things in Term 2. We wish all the teachers and students a happy and a safe holiday.

Hi Maroussia and Uluaki,
It's great to see and read that you are both getting involved in school activities. Uluaki should know lots about water because that was one of our topics at Pt England School a few years ago. Keep up the great work and I will try and visit again soon.
