Christmas Party




To celebrate the end of 2017, the whole Junior School decided to have a fabulous Carnival Christmas Party.
The teachers organised bouncy castles, water slides, face painting, games, bike rides, craft, Mr Whippy Ice cream - and even an extra special visit from Santa Claus himself.

It was a super day in the sun and such a lovely way to say goodbye to a wonderful year

Santa Stockings



Thank goodness that all of DaBoyz made it on to Santa's Nice List because.... he visited us and left some pretty cool presents!
A couple of weeks ago Gigi made us our own stockings that we got to decorate with our own Christmas pictures. Because we have had such a great year, Santa made sure to visit us all and leave such lovely gifts.
The highlight of unwrapping our stockings had to be the socks.
Thank You Santa and Merry Christmas everyone.

Building with Mr J



Mr J enjoyed making bugles so much that he really wanted to come back and make something else.

This time we used heaps more tools and made our very own foot catapults.

Thanks Mr J. DaBoyz have enjoyed these fun activities so much and have really shown so much of what they've learnt in 2017.

Making Bugles


We were very lucky this week when Mr Jacobsen came and made bugles with us. He is a bugling superstar and often treats us to a performance at assembly.
Thank you Mr J, we love annoying Miss King with our trumpeting bugles!

Gravity Trampoline Park



DaBoyz received the most amazing gift today - one hour uninterrupted free play at Gravity Trampoline Park. Miss King's friend works at the park and was able to not only secure tickets but also brand new socks!
A most wonderful experience for all of DaBoyz.

Thank you Melissa, Te Manu, Max, Harry and everyone at Gravity

Musical Madness




The theme for term 4 at Pt England is - Musical Madness. This means that we are learning lots about music. Poor Miss King needs lots of help when it comes to music, so we started simple with glockenspiels, recorders and Garageband. We have certainly had a lot of fun learning a little about these instruments and together we've even recorded a song!

Space Art



This week we have been creating some amazing artwork.  To fit with our space theme, the boys have painted pictures of rockets and planets. We worked hard to persevere through the challenges and to not let mistakes get in our way.
Everyone is very very proud of what they have created - especially Miss King

Because it was a sunny day....



Because it's fun, because the sun was shinning, because we wanted to, we went to build huts, climb trees and play in the mud.
Pt England is very lucky to have a small bush reserve next to school. Miss King has wanted to visit and play there for aaaages. Today was the day that the sun finally shone and we could go and play to our heart's content.
