Student Leader Badges by Daniel

Today at assembly the student leaders got their badges. They have a silver background with the Panmure Bridge school logo on it. The badges also have the student leaders name on it. Under our names, are our positions (Head students, Sport leaders, Manaiakalani leaders). The badges look awesome!

Learning about Neurons by Zahra


 Today I was working with Affonso. We were learning about Neurons and made a DLO about them. Something I learnt about Neurons is that, we have millions of them in our brain. Learning about Neurons was really interesting.

What is a River?

The challenge to use smart searching skills to create a 25 word summary that tells others what a river is. To do this successfully our learners needed to find a buddy then work collaboratively sharing their thinking and negotiating the ideas that would be included in their 25 word summary.

Congratulations Te Wai and Dallas!

Congratulations Te Wai and Dallas a certificate for respecting others. Respect is one of our Panmure Bridge School values so it is great to see our senior students being recognised for this so early in teh school year. What great role models you both are!

Interschool Softball Report: By Sylis

On Wednesday Panmure Bridge School participated in the interschool softball. There were three teams, one was a Year 5 and 6 team which was called Panmure Bridge School, another was a Year 7 team called Panmure Bridge B and the last team was a Year 8 team called Panmure Bridge A. Once everyone was ready to play we figured out where we needed to be and played. The year 8 team played Point England, Tamaki Primary and Glenbre. We all played very hard but we lost all our games. Then we heard that we were playing the year 7 team. The year 5 and 6 team did really well and won two games. 

It was really fun even though we lost all our games. Thank you Mr M, Mr Ogilvie, Mrs Kirkpatrick and Mrs Caroline for coming down and supervising us.

Key Competencies in action!

This morning the key competencies were alive and kicking in LS2. Using our multimodal reading site each group accessed the learning at their own pace and in their own way. This allowed for stronger connections to be made, something that was evident in the discussions that were taking place. Great collaboration LS2!

Thinking and making connections

Self managed reciprocal reading

Participating in and contributing to the learning

Understanding language, symbols and text

Relating to others
