Survival tips on a Raft!


For our reading tasks we were reading a book about two guys learning how to survive on a
Life Craft.
My group called Tui, had a task to do which was to list 10 survival tips when you are on a Life Craft. My tips are:

1. You need to practice getting into the Life Craft.
2. You must learn how to swim.
3. Make sure you wear proper clothing.
4. YOU MUST NOT DRINK YOUR URINE
or else you're get thirsty.
5. Take seasick pills.
6. You definitely need your life jacket
7. Know how to release and inflate the craft.
8. You have to cuddle amongst each other to keep warm.
9. You have to believe you are going to survive.
10. Make sure you have a plastic bag in case you spew up.

Multiple Intelligence


This is one of our tasks with multiple intelligence, which was to make a quiz about the famous mighty teen mariner Jesse Martin.

Eleven years ago Jesse Martin became the youngest ever to sail around the world solo unassisted.

He started from australia headed down past New Zealand and straight to Cape Horn.

When Jesse completed his journey there were more than 25,000 people to welcome Jesse home.

Immersion Assembly


Every term our whole school will have a topic to study and find facts about. At the beginning of each term, our school runs an Immersion Assembly.

If you’re wondering what on earth is an Immersion assembly, it is when the staff members or the teachers dress up  and present an act to us.   Part of their act will always have to be about the topic we are learning about.

One of my favourite Immersion assemblies was when our topic was ‘Food Glorious Food’. When everyone sat down, people who sat up straight, Received  a Sausage with bread or a piece of B.B.Q chicken on a plate.  I could still remember Ms Garden one of our teachers at our school giving me lots of ‘Corn Chips’ with her famous ‘Guacamole’ during assembly.

Pt England is the only school I know that has the best Immersion Assembly’s.
