Using A or An by Ofa


Today we were learning when to use a and when to use an before a word. If a word begins with a vowel (a-e-i-o-u) or a silent h for example I want an apple for morning tea or I want an ukulele to play with. When we use a we use it for words beginning with all the other words except for the vowels. The DLO above shows you what we use 'an' or 'a' for. I have also included pictures.

Using a or an... by Harlem H

Today we were learning when to use a and when to use an before a word. If a word begins with a vowel (a - e -i - o - u) or a silent h (eg: hour) we use an
  • eg: I saw an umbrella flying.
We use a for all other words. 
  • eg: I am eating a piece of fruit.
The photo shows the sentences we wrote to help us practise using a or an.

What was the suffrage movement?



Since woman's rights was a big issue in the olden days our reading topic this term related . We watched a youtube video about the suffragette movement and wrote a 25 word summary on "what was the suffragette movement". . I found this quite hard because it isn't a skill that I have mastered (summary) but talking to my group helped me make my connection.

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.
