What an amazing prize!

Ofa and Daniel our prize winners.

PBS singing Tutira Mai

Daniels blog post below tells us about his amazing prize of getting to watch the All Blacks training at Eden Park.

Two weeks ago (on a Friday), Panmure Bridge school had a black out day. Everyone could come to school in black (to represent the All Blacks) or red (to represent the Lions). During that day, Mr Ogilvie made a video of PBS singing Tutira Mai (The All Blacks song). Panmure Bridge school won a competition and got two tickets to see the All Blacks train on Thursday 6th of July (Today) and two tickets to do the captain's run with the All Blacks on Friday 7th of July (Tomorrow). I won the two tickets to go and see the All Blacks train today. Even in training they were very impressive, however, the best part of the day was getting loads of photos with them!

Winter Solstice by Sanujan and Joshua W

Sanujan and Joshua W have made an animation of the Winter Solstice. They have added in interesting facts. They have also added in how the Northern Hemisphere is currently Summer and the Southern Hemisphere is Winter.  Using their smart searching skills they have made a reference slide with their websites they have used. 

Winter and Summer Solstice by Shannon and Fraidoon

This animation was created by Shannon and Fraidoon. They have explained the process of how the earth orbits around the sun. Did you know that it takes one whole year for the earth to orbit right around the sun? They have done a great job making this creative animation. 

Winter and Summer Solstice Animation by Jeremiah and Ofa

This animation is made by Ofa and Jeremiah. This is about the winter solstice and the summer solstice and was based on Matariki. These boys have used their creative thinking by using the Lions and All Blacks supporters gears in this which is great.

Quad blogging with Paihia School

This morning we have been enjoying making connections with Paihia School. LS2 enjoy reading about what other kids in NZ are doing during their learning time. We were all very interested in the beach clean up posts as this is similar to something we did in term 1.

NZ's Rubbish by Ofa, Mataio and Zara

This term for inquiry we are looking at how we can look after our planet by thinking about the ways we reduce, reuse, recycle at Panmure Bridge School. For this task we had to read two articles about New Zealand's rubbish. One thing I have learnt is that every year New Zealand throws away 3.6 millions tonnes of rubbish which is taken to landfills. I worked with Zahra and Mataio. We wrote down our own informed opinion about New Zealand's littering.

Quad blogging with Kororo School

We had a great afternoon today connecting with Kororo School through blog commenting. Everyone enjoyed reading blog posts that showed a different learning journey to their own. What excited me was seeing so many of our learners using their smart searching school to explore Greymouth to strengthen the new connections they were making.

Problem solving by Zahra

In this DLO, I had to solve an equation about pizza and things. I had to figure out a strategy to this problem. This DLO has a question, a clue, and a strategy to solve the question. 

Problem Solving by Mishaan


In this DLO I had to work out a strategy and figure out the problem to this.  I have written the question, the clue and my strategy or my way of solving the problem.  This helped us with our fractions, multiplication and division. This was a tricky problem to solve but I successfully figured it out.
