Our Year in Review

This video highlights all the very AWESOME things that Room 14 got up to in 2010.
Year 5 was an amazing year. We excelled in so many things and made great improvements in our writing, reading and maths. Most of all, we loved school and enjoyed our learning and time together.
On the second to last day of school we all packed up our classrooms ready for the big move to our new room - the whole school shifted. This review begins with the end and eventually brings to you nearly everything we did during 2010.
Here's to us being amazing for the rest of our lives and achieving our dreams.

Senior Prizegiving - Girl's Item

On Thursday 9th December the seniors had their prizegiving. We all had to perform to our parents and other kids. Before we performed, Mr Burt gave out certificates and even some trophies for the students who came 1st, 2nd or 3rd in Year 5.
Our dance is performed to the song "Night of Your Life" by J Williams. He's a New Zealand singer and we think he's amazing.
We've finished school for the year now and look forward to, Christmas, holidays and being year 6s.

Senior Boys Prizegiving Dance

Our school prizegiving this year was a bit different because, for the first time, we had separate junior and senior prizegivings. Our senior prizegiving was a special event held in the evening.
For a couple of weeks we practiced our moves really hard and enjoyed ourselves dancing - even when the teachers got tired and grumpy.
When it came to the night we were prepared to dance. We made our parents proud and we're sure there was a tear in Miss King's eye. All the boys worked hard and are deserving of the rapturous applause we received.
Thanks Larsen for your help in getting the remix sounding so choice.

Hosannah Reflection Story



This year I have enjoyed making movies and acting in it because it is fun being with friends and our teacher. The thing I enjoyed learning the most was when MT Vesuvious erupted in Pompeii. I'd like to learn more of getting use to the computer instead of asking people. I would have worked harder at getting my animation finished so I can move on. I really enjoyed going to camp because we get to do lots of fun things,my favourite thing in camp was the concert.

The best way of learning for me is sitting on the mat and listening to Miss King . To me I tink I have improved in the writing test because Miss King was very proud of me. My goal for next year is to have my own blog.

Sesalina Swimming.


I enjoyed swimming on the pools on Tuesdays every week its our first time at Pt England school having to look after our own swimming pool. Learning with Ben,Chris,Nicole and Matt was so fun teaching us how to play water polo.
when I started swimming in our new pool I was excited because I like when the water is cold.
I wish if Pt England school could keep this pool again.

Tui's Swimming Thoughts


On term four one big strange thing came on our netball court. That strange thing was a swimming pool. Wow, I was so excited that we have our own pool for now. When it was Tuesday it was our turn to go swimming. We hopped in the pool, it was extremely icy cold. It felt like I won’t go in there any more. After I wet my hair the man introduced himself his name is Chris and told us what we were going to do. Our teacher told that we were going to rehearse a dance. Miss King took the sharks and Chris took us, the dolphins. We were doing swirls, handstands and freestyle, it was like a performance. Circling ballerinas with interesting Tec tonic. We clapped for them. Our one was in numbers so we knew what to do next. The count was up to four so we dived, then did a handstand and Circles then in the water. Later we only had five minutes of free time. “YAY” everyone shouted as we all played.

Mary V's swimming reflections


Today is the last term of the year and we have been having a brand new swimming pool just for Pt England school, to have swimming lessons and lots of games. The fantastic games are water polo, snorkeling and life saving. Now those are cool games!

I would like to give a massive thank you to Chris, Ben, Nicole, Mat, Alice, Stacey and the rest of the great people that taught us some lessons or games. I wish you could keep on teaching us but, it is better if you all go teach other people what you all taught us. Don’t forget Pt England school and what you all have done with us. We will miss you all!

Andrea Swimming



I have enjoyed doing swimming with my class and doing activities in the pool at lunch times. I have learnt how to kick with floppy ankles and do free style properly. I think with our own pool it is much better because we don't have to walk far to the pool, its just right outside our door and we don't need to miss lunch time. My goal that I have achieved is learning to kick with floppy ankles and to swim a whole lap. I still want to learn how to jump out of the water and leap in and out like a dolphin.

Caroline swimming thoughts



In the beginning of term 4 there was an huge truck on the netball courts Point England kids were asking the men what are they building?’We are building your guys own school pool’.Room 14 only swims on Tuesdays. When room14 started swimming it was really cold when we got inside we were all shaking because it was freezing. Men and women to came teach,water polo, life surfer,and snorkeling. 1 week later anyone kid can sign water polo or something else you go on Tuesdays Wednesdays Thursdays or probably Friday and Monday.I was in water polo i like playing water polo is so fun. If you play that game you cant walk with the ball you can only swim with the ball with one hand. Every lunch time that will always and we learnt how to kick, with out splashing.It’s so enjoyable to have a really long,huge,and large pool at Pt England so that any class can book the pools out our class room.
