Welcome Back!

Welcome back for Term 3! I hope you all stayed warm over these winter holidays!

This term we are doing a topic on Trade and Enterprise. Team 2 are going to learn about producing ice cream - yum! We will do some market research and find out about our favourite flavours of ice cream, then we will trial making ice cream in a variety of flavours. We will look at the packaging of ice cream and how we can sell it. Then we are going to make some to sell at a gala day.

Here is the movie from our Immersion Assembly yesterday.

On Thursday we celebrated Matariki. Matariki is when we see seven stars in the sky. Team 2 went to the hall for Matariki activities. We had fun at the hall. In the hall we coloured in some stars and we learned how to use the poi.

A taniwha is emerging in Room 27. Where do you think it came from? Where do you think it will go?

Guess who has been hanging out at Pt England School this week?

Mrs Jarman!!!! She reminded us to be good with the cards, it's not that hard!
