The stars of the show!

The stars were twinkling at Stardome as Rooms 9 and 10 learnt more about the solar system and life beyond earth yesterday. As well as finding out information by reading and looking at the displays, we were treated to John's expert knowledge of the planets and their moons before we sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the show in the planetarium!

Cycling with Rochelle

Rochelle Young from Avanti recently visited Point England to help Rooms 9 and 10 learn some new cycling skills. We helped each other fit our helmets correctly and carry out the ABC bike safety check. We were finally ready to ride …

Here is a movie we created about this visit which was shared with PES on PENN today. As you will see, we had so much fun!

My astronaut suitcase - by Trinity O

Walt:  write our ideas using complex sentences.

Description: This was my suit case of my stuff I am going to take to space
and somethings that describe it. I also wrote things that are important to take and that are things that you can do if you are board. 

Description: This activity was to do sentences about what you should take to space in a suit case. We also had to write sentences about complex sentences of why you might need them. We had to do one sentence for each  word.

What a beautiful afternoon for the annual Point England cross-country event. We enjoyed the sunshine as we watched others run and then took our turn to run the 1.5 km course around Point England Reserve and the school field. It was wonderful to see everyone trying their best in the muddy conditions.

We also had heaps of fun this morning helping Miss Va'afusuaga by checking that the course was free of rubbish, sticks and tree branches. In the end we found more puddles and mud to explore than rubbish to pick up!

Our ballet trip

A few lucky learners in Rooms 9 and 10 were part of a group of PES students who attended the school matinee performance of Romeo and Juliet by the Royal New Zealand Ballet at the Aotea Centre in the city this afternoon.  As well as the trip into town on the very plush bus, everyone was blown away by the magic of the set, dancing, costumes and music.
