Explanation - Immersion Assemblies At P.E.S

WALT: Review the parts of 'Explanation Writing'

It’s the start of the term and it’s time to find out what our study will be.  As usual our teacher’s are playing things down, keep things under wrap so we won’t know until our immersion assembly.   Immersion assemblies are the Pt England Way!   Let me explain to you in the next 3 paragraphs why we love having immersion assemblies.

( Thanks for the Paragraph MRS TELEA) 

Immersion Assembly at Pt England School, means showing and explaining what and why each team has pick what they are going to learn this term. Each team of teachers will have a turn showing and explain what they are going to do this term. As each team acts out there item it gets my mind hooked into this terms topic, which is ‘ Te Wā Toi’. 

Another reason why I like Immersion Assemblies is, because the excitement doesn’t just stay in one little spot it spreads around to all the student learners. So as each team of teacher act and show what they are doing for the term, everyone gets excited and is ready to start the term off strong.  

The next reason why Pt England students love Immersion Assemblies is that, we all get to see capture ideas of what each team is doing including our own team. As each team performs everyone it really hooked in and listening really well so they can get a head start on what there doing this term. 

So there you have it. The 4 reasons as to why we love having immersion assemblies to kick off every term of learning at Pt England School.  Maybe you could use this explanation to help you set up something similar in your learning community.    

Task Description: For this task we had to write and explanation about our Immersion Assemblies that we have at our school. Mrs Telea also said that it is good for us, because next week we will be doing a explanation for our writing test.

Teacher's Strike!

Walt: write why the teachers are going on strike and what they want.

Why are teachers going on strike?

This Wednesday across the whole world all the teachers that
teacher in primary and intermediate are going on strike.
This is the second time in 24 years that the teachers are going
on strike.
What the teachers want?
There are three things that teacher want to help school and themselves.
One thing that teachers want is More time to teach. That means teachers want less jobs
to do like writing a reflection after every single separate session. They just want more time to
teach with the children so they have a better education and life.  

What the teachers want?
One thing that teachers want are better resources. For example privates schools have classes
of 14 students and one teacher. Isn’t that cool? But looking at states school there are
double the amount of student that are in a class at a private school. So teacher think that
schools need more teachers and better resources to work on.

Things to make your holiday fun.

Walt: Write a list of thing to do in the holiday.

Have you ever thought about what could make your school Holiday fun? Well read on to find out
some fun ideas that you can try/do in the coming up holidays.  

One thing that I really love is a game of touch. Everyday me and my cousins are all out in the
backyard play a game of touch. We have a lot of fun play touch and also tell jokes and making
everybody laugh as we play. So maybe if you have a lot guest over at your house touch in the
backyard might be a good idea.

Maybe after a couple of hours playing touch in the backyard you might feel a little hungry. That’s
right time for lunch. Maybe a healthy sandwich will do till dinner time. A bacon and cheese
sandwich. Mmmmm? That sounds delicious. If mum and dad isn’t home then maybe you can
chuck in a little bit more flavor into your bacon.

Now that you have finished eat you will probably have a bit of dishes that you made while
making your sandwich. So the next thing you could do is something that mum and dad will
surely have ready for you and your siblings is a list of chores.

Now the chores are out of the way you can sit back, relax and watch a movie with your family.
Eat popcorn, eat lollies and have a little nap.

So there you go, a list a idea for you to make your holiday a best holiday ever.

Immersion Assembly - T3 2018

Walt: Write a story Recount about

As I get closer and closer to the hall for assembly I hear music play. Looking around as I past the
younger student sitting down in the school hall I see, a hairy legged person on stage dancing.

He was wearing denim shorts and bright green socks. After a few minutes I had just realized that it
was our principal.
My highlights of the Term 3 Immersion Assembly was actually Team 2’s video. Why I liked Team 2’s
video the best is because it shows lots of ways in how they can be active indoors and outdoors. Also
at the end of their video it show what healthy lunches they made.

I would like to say a huge thank you to the Pt England Staff for all
the hard work that you have showed the whole school. I think that the hard work that you all have done,
has made all of the Pt England student want to learn more about this terms topic. Seeing the little
tamariki faces, they looked more excited for the term then the older students. Thank - you Mr Burt and
Pt England Staff.

Task Description: For this task we had to write a recount about Term 3 2018 Immersion Assembly. We had to write three paragraphs. The 3 paragraphs are about the introduction, My first highlight and a THANK - YOU paragraph.
