As part of learning about energy for our theme - I Like to Move it Move it - The Block were lucky enough to make catapults. By making catapults we learnt about potential energy, kinetic energy and gravity. We were also lucky enough to have a WAR!

To celebrate the end of 2017, the whole Junior School decided to have a fabulous Carnival Christmas Party.
The teachers organised bouncy castles, water slides, face painting, games, bike rides, craft, Mr Whippy Ice cream - and even an extra special visit from Santa Claus himself.
It was a super day in the sun and such a lovely way to say goodbye to a wonderful year

Thank goodness that all of DaBoyz made it on to Santa's Nice List because.... he visited us and left some pretty cool presents!
A couple of weeks ago Gigi made us our own stockings that we got to decorate with our own Christmas pictures. Because we have had such a great year, Santa made sure to visit us all and leave such lovely gifts.
The highlight of unwrapping our stockings had to be the socks.
Thank You Santa and Merry Christmas everyone.

Mr J enjoyed making bugles so much that he really wanted to come back and make something else.
This time we used heaps more tools and made our very own foot catapults.
Thanks Mr J. DaBoyz have enjoyed these fun activities so much and have really shown so much of what they've learnt in 2017.

DaBoyz received the most amazing gift today - one hour uninterrupted free play at Gravity Trampoline Park. Miss King's friend works at the park and was able to not only secure tickets but also brand new socks!
A most wonderful experience for all of DaBoyz.
Thank you Melissa, Te Manu, Max, Harry and everyone at Gravity

The theme for term 4 at Pt England is - Musical Madness. This means that we are learning lots about music. Poor Miss King needs lots of help when it comes to music, so we started simple with glockenspiels, recorders and Garageband. We have certainly had a lot of fun learning a little about these instruments and together we've even recorded a song!

This week we have been creating some amazing artwork. To fit with our space theme, the boys have painted pictures of rockets and planets. We worked hard to persevere through the challenges and to not let mistakes get in our way.
Everyone is very very proud of what they have created - especially Miss King

Friday saw a culmination of all the hard work our Tongan boys had been doing. They spent the week practising with the intermediate boys and performed proudly on Friday morning at assembly. Malie Tamasi'i
