This week room 1 maths class have been learning all about coordinate plans. We learnt how the coordinates work and how we can connect them to find out the answers for our math equations.
Room 1 learnt how to use the coordinates by getting into groups of four and helping each other find out what they needed to know to get their answer and we also used a spare piece of paper to write down our answers, but this week we are focusing on finding out what the coordinates mean and finding out how we can use them in math equations.

Team assembly

Yayyy! Were back at school today and pt england school is feeling really fine
and great to start a new term, term 2.


To start the day off Pt england school had an immersion assembly. Immersion
assembly is when each team pick’s a strategy to come up with something that
is similar with what our theme would be and then make a video and then
present it to pt england school. I was really nervous to start the term off with
a team assembly.


All teams presented their class video’s really well and I enjoyed watching and
seeing what they would be learning about for this term. Our first item was team
1, team 1 video was all about saving bees from dying so that way they can
produce fruits better and so we could keep us living a good life and also keep
us healthy.

The next item was presented by team 2, team to was learning about how they
can look for things better and improve on getting good at finding easter eggs
on easter holidays. They practised looking for easter eggs by looking over,
under, up & down , left & right. I think team 2 presented a very well video to
start back a new term.


Next item was also presented by team 3, team 3 item was all about picking the
right paths for your own story and making the right choices. I think that team 3
presented a really well video and some day we can use some ideas in our
stories and in our life.


The second to last item was presented by team 4. Team 4 video was mainly
about using a compass and a map and using them to find there way back to
school to have a important meeting with Mr Goodwin. I think there video looked
really hard and challenging and what I liked about their video was how they
used a compass from the olden days and also how they found it challenging
making their way back to school but one thing i enjoyed was they never gave
up.

The last team that presented their item in real life not as a video. Team 5 acting
was really cool and funny team 5 shared some things about continents and
what continents she can visit and explore. So this term team 5 will be learning
about where different countries are and where these countries come from.


This year a country i’d like to visit is the United States Of America because
when my mum was little she got to visit places that i never got to visit and i
would love it if i could visit the USA.

Geust speakers

Today this afternoon team 5 students had 3 adult visiters come talk about how to get different carrers and how to get them. These 3 adult visters names were Fiona Buckulich, Jason Young, and last at not least Tanielu Tele'a. Miss Fiona Buckulich talked about her childhood and where she has ended up in the future, she was working as a Funeral director and started filiming there videos last year and they came up with a name for there video which was named The Casketeers. Fiona has been playing sports since she was little she had happen to be a sprinter and also a rugby player she was taught loads of things like what her goals were or what she'd do in life. Now that she is grown up she has been informed to be a funeral director. As a funeral director it's her job to keep sick and old people safe, she's also been making caskets or coffins for the people who have unfortunately passed away but most importantly its her job to keep these old and sick people safe.Fiona Bucklich works as a funeral director for 24 hours, while we people are sleeping.She keeps these sick people healthy and strong so in the afternoon we will take a little bit of advise from this exact carrer and use it and also connect it to where we are heading today.


Jason young, Jason young is someone who came to ptengland school but finished school at year 6. He started as a builder and loved working with his hands. He built houses for people as his carrer he is also known as a trusted adviser he also did the ironman challenge with our lovely teacher Miss Teto they had to run a long way and also biked and swam for 16 hours which you will likely see that he had accomplished that long ironman challenge. He came to ptengland school at a really young age but he also grew up going to tamaki collage but he never went to university and today standing at his old school looking at us team 5 students he regrets not going to univesity so kids when you grow up always follow your heart and always go for the things that you belive in not in the things that you don't belive but never stick to one think stick to the things that you havn't tried before and just try them out.


Tanielu Tele'a, Tanielu Tele'a is Mrs and Mr Tele'a son he is the oldest of 4 siblings one Tareka who grew up being his younger sister and was amazing at filming and presenting her animations to our school, she was also known as a year 8 prefect at ptengland school she and her prefects uploaded and filmed there korero every single day. Moving on to there other brother Justice Tele'a, he was a year 8 student that also attended to pt england school he was a well being rugby player he was taught to avoid bad things that would sometimes happen throughout the past few years but one thing he learnt was to get through the hard times that would happen at school. Last at not least Noelle, Noelle is an amazing and an intellegent little girl that is sometimes playful and who is always full of enegy she always full of energy when she comes to help support her mum known as Mrs Tele'a.


 Tanielu Tele'a grew up in GI short for Glen Innes. He also came to Pt England School at a very young age, he started coming to Pt England School at the age of 5. Growing up he loved playing rugby and rugby league he played played rugby for the school and also played rugby league for school as well, he was one of the best players of our school he has represented Pt England School really well and has been ever since. Growing up playing very competitive schools around Auckland was one of his best challenges that he improved on at every single game one year later he was called for a scholarship to Saint Kentigants collage to play rugby most of all he would have to focus on rugby most of the time he would have to focus on his learning towards school. He started training with the rugby warriors and picking up advise on playing rugby so he can do it in his rugby game one year later he was called to play for the blues team when he got that call he was just in shock he was so gutted that he made the Auckland Blues team. His first time playing rugby with the blues was very nerve racking beacause you knowing that it's your first time would mostly be scary at first but as the time goes you start uplifting your confidence towards your fares and stuff so that what so good about Mr Tanielu Tele'a .

Week 8 Dimic




This week room 1 math group have been creating a math survey. In my groups survey our categories were sports which were Netball, Tennis,Touch, Soccer,Basketball and Rugby. We created tally's to represent how much we like sports. I think my group did really well this week but what I would like to work on for next week is finding out how to do it a different way.

My group met up again to create a pie graph using google sheets.
