This tearm at Pt England School the teachers from Team 5 have made an interesting rotation for the team 5 student. School has been starting at 8:30 for the year 7 and 8 students to have a chance to learn with each teacher an to learn new things. We had a choice of four things such as visual arts, stop-motion film making, hyperstudio and literacy.
Last week my first session was visual art. Our teacher was Miss Tito. When we were doing art Miss Tito taught us a lot about kowhaiwhai and Maori words such as koru, pitoe, ponga and kowhaiwhai, which is a patten that is joined together.
I really enjoyed my time in visual art with Miss Tito. I really enjoyed art because it is my favourite subject. I learned many Maori words from Miss Tito and pattens.
This week I am in literacy. As you might know, literacy is about reading and writing. My teacher for literacy is Mrs Nua. Today was my first day doing reading - it was really interesting because we read things from the newspaper and played word games.
I feel that the new literacy rotation is really cool because it gives us time to work more and to lean more things.
