Special Guest Gives Me A Touching Speech

This morning team 5 went to go sit on the streets, we waiting to see a special guest. The first thing I saw was a man standing next to Mr Wisemen, I was wondering  what is he doing here. Then Mr Wisemen said "Say good morning to Mr Patterson" So he told us we are going to talk about what do we want to do in the future. 

Image result for be a giverHe also talked about be a giver or if you don't want to be a giver be a taker.  Also AIM which mean (A = Aspiring ) (I = Inspiring ) M = Motivation) . Which means AIM for success which is such a good quote for people to inspire to.

Also talked about a boy named Willie who gave his lunch money to a homeless person who need food which was such a blessing. He was on television and the homeless person now has a job, a big house and all because a 11 year old gave food to him. Hear is a link to find out more about Willie

My Journey Being In Team 5

My Journey Being In Team 5
Have you ever been wondering what's it like to be a senior in team 5?? Well I will tell you about my journey throughout this year. Being in team 5 you have to be the leaders at Point England School.
My time at Point England School in team 5 has been awesome because I have met lots of kind and encouraging students and teachers. Being in team 5 is the most hardest team to be in because you have lots of jobs to do around the school. One of my favourite terms has to be term 2 because when the year 8’s left to camp the year 7’s stayed at Point England School we did lots of fun activities it felt like the year 7’s were at a even better camp than the year 8's.
I have been at Point England School for about 4 years, nearly almost everyone started Point England School at 5 years old, but I came to Point England School when I was a year 3 it was like an adventure because I was in a class with year 4 students, it was like being in a class with my older siblings it was so decorated and in the room had lots of different colours, my teacher was beautiful her name was Mrs Nalder and she was an amazing teacher. She teaches me different kinds of awesome things. Then I came up to year 7 which took so long.
Team 5 is the oldest team at Point England School we are older than all the other teams so that makes us the leaders for Point England School. At team 5 there are different unique students they have there own talent which is so amazing. Being in team 5 we start school at 8:30, we also wear different kinds of uniform such as culottes and a black hat we sit on chairs at assembly which is an so amazing.
It is an honour to be in team 5 because I have lots of different kinds of teachers who help me learn and I have friends who are supportive and friendly it’s my second to last year at Point England School and being in team 5. It was the longest journey I have been in, this school was a bit different from all the schools I have been to. But sooner or later everyone will leave this awesome school. Point England School is the best school I have been to!!!

Term 4 Immersion Assembley

When I sat down on the cold red chairs I was reading our theme this term and while I was reading Musical Madness I noticed my teeth was chattering it was freezing cold and I saw different kinds of instrument on the stage there was two different kinds of guitars and some drums and a black trumpet and when Mrs Nua ran up the stage she was holding a tambourine, they made a song that was about MUSICAL MADNESS!!

It was time for TEAM ONE!!! As I was watching what they were doing I could see that they needed a lot of chairs they put a table on the stage and each teacher sat on a chair, I could see Miss Hockly was holding a stack of cards and she was telling the teachers that they should play snap and they put music on. It was a calm music so all the teachers were calm then a scary music there emotions became scared and so on they were angry because there was an angry song on they played lots of songs that include your emotions .

Next was TEAM TWO!!!  Team two had only four teachers all the teachers were off stage and only Miss Gaston was on the stage holding an ukulele. When she started playing the ukulele I could regonise the tune but didnt know what it was until she sang the song she was singing In The Jungle and then 20 seconds later Miss Peck comes up and starts hitting a bell on her thigh next was Miss Tumahai she had a xylophone and she had two sticks she was dragging the sticks on the xylophone next was Ms Nalder she had  a bongo drums she was hitting it with her hands.

After that was TEAM THREE!!! Mrs King stood up and started to say what Team three will be doing and she said that they made clips and put a song in the background. As I was watching it I cloudnt stop laughing because Mr Moran was dancing very funny and the songs they were playing was funny aswell.

Next was TEAM FOUR!!! The team leader Mr Sommerville came up to the stage and started to talk about how there going to make there own orignal instruments and so he told us “HOPE YOU ENJOY” so we began to watch while I was watching I could see that the team 4 teacher were in a car they were lip singing to all the songs they played and once they parked at Pt England School carpark you could see that they parked right next to Mr Jacobsens’s van and he put the window down and he gave the teachers a weird looking face and then the team 4 teachers put there window down and gave Mr Jacobsen like an OMG face and Mr Jacobsen played a funny song and everyone started to laugh.

Lastly was TEAM FIVE!!! I was super exctied because Team 5 is my team as I saw all the teachers gathered on the stage I could see that they had a couch hidden on the stage it looked super heavy as Mr Wisemen, Mrs Iloao was putting the couch down and I could see Mr Wisemen rip a pack of popcorn so all the teachers were sitting on the couch and satared to watch The Lion King and they put a scary song on so the teachers felt scared and so if the music is happy the teachers emotions will change happy.
