Immersion assembly - term four

It’s the start of the term 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.

Being excited - eager to learn!  That’s us - that’s what the immersion assembly today has us feeling. Waiting there patiently for the assembly to start. New term, new topic a good start for this term. Art is the best way to finish my last year in intermediate before i head off to college

Like every immersion assembly, we’ve got a new topic for this term. Te wå toi, and our focus for this term is art. During the assembly Mr Jacobson and Mrs Nua were transforming our principle into …… Although i wasn’t that interested - At the time - Since it was the first day back at school i was feeling kinda tired and couldn’t really focus on the assembly.         

Each team presented something related to art and explained to the whole school what their team has to look forward to this term. Each one was kinda entertaining, although one did take a while to finish, but the ending results were quite good - even though they traced it. Team 3 didn’t quite understand art and instead they just had fun and put paint on themselves and painted the paper with their bodys.

There you have it - 3 reasons as to why we love having immersion assemblies to kick off every term of learning at Pt England School.  Maybe you could use my explanation to help you set up something similar in your learning

Move your body - Week 9

My Mother

My Mother gave me comfort
And feed me everyday
They say be grateful you have mother
Cause mine was never there
My nana never seemed that bad
And neither did my papa
But i never really knew them well
Not as good as my mother

As the wind whistled past my ear
I looked in the distance 
And stared at the figure
That I thought it went out of existence 
But now I realise
As I gazed at its eyes
I took a step back
And jumped back in the car 
Then drove silently away 
Without even knowing 
That it jumped in the back
And came home with me
