Teacher Strike Day

More time to teach
This must STOP! Our teachers must focus more on the students rather than working on
our reports, our learning is more important. All the teachers in New Zealand need more
time to teach there students, The reason why they need to spend more time with us is
because  some of us students have trouble understanding how and what to do.When
students come to ask the teachers a question they are usually always busy doing reports,
paperwork and presentations, I really want this to change.

Resoursing for additional needs
Some students even need one teacher to themselves, So I prefer having more teachers in
one classroom. Students who are in need, needs more help than usual students. I think
that in each class there’s always one group of students that find it hard to learn. So that
way students in need catch up with the rest of the classes learning.

Better Pay
The way I look at things teachers don’t get paid enough, So I think that teachers who
have been teaching for years should get more amount of money than new teachers
should, because they worked hard every year and they had the same amount of money.
They work hard everyday so that they could get money for their families and to pay
their bills.

So there you have it, you should know that the teachers have done a lot for you. I hope
that they should give teachers more amount of money for their families.

Immersion Assembly

As we sat down the sound of music came to my ears and our principle came out  dressed as Beyonce and also dancing his way on the stage, I thought he was just dressing up to make us laugh but really he was actually ment to Beyonce. Now let me tell you about my favourite item, every item was fantastic and amazing but one of them really blew me away.

Team 1 was the team that blew me away it was like an expectation vs reality type of video. Anyway the team 1 teachers made a movie and it was about what our expectation’s should look like, but Mrs Dwyer was doing the oppisite she was trying to show us what not to do. So basically what they are trying to tell us  is to eat a healthy breakfast, exercise and also sleep early.

I would just like to thank each and everyone of the teachers for giving up their time to prepare their movies an also to the team five teachers for their act. It was a great Immersion assembly it was one of my favourite's, all because of the teachers at Pt England School.

Fragments & Sentences

WALT:identify and write complete sentences

Force & Motion EXPO

This term team five has been learning about Force and Motion. The reason why we are learning about Force and Motion is because it helps us to understand what force and motion means and for others to understand as well. 

My group and I only had two ideas, and we couldn’t decide which experiment to do. Our first idea was the Marshmallow Shooter. Then our second idea was the Water Transporter. They were the only two ideas my group and I could think of. 

Our first one we did was a Marshmallow shooter and our second one was called The Water Transporter. We tried the marshmallow shooter first outside, and that was a success. Then our second experiment was the Water Transporter, it was also a success. But the issue was that the water transporter took a bit longer than we thought it would. 

Was our experiment Successful or was it a failure? Well both of our experiments we tried was a success. Why? Because my group and I followed the instructions carefully, and also my group and I listened very well and knew what we were doing. So I think my group and I did a successful job at our experiment. 

Next time we will be more prepared to bring our own equipment and make sure to be ready before the day we present our experiment. Next time we need to come up with more ideas and listen to what other people come up with.
