Researching London Landmarks

After the Olympics we decided to learn a more about London.
Here we are looking at images of famous landmarks in London.
We had to work together to find the information on google and then 
match the name of the landmark to the image.

Have you been to London? 
Tell us about the famous landmarks that you saw there.

Point View School - Classroom walk through

On Thursday the 27th September the whole school went on a walk through of each others classrooms.
It was very organised but we only had half an hour to get through all the odd numbered classrooms.
All the odd classroom numbers visited odd classroom numbers and 
all the even numbered classroom numbers visited the even classroom numbers.
We are Room 3 so we headed off the next odd number - Room 5 then 7 etc.
We have 34 classrooms at our school.

We had so much fun seeing what all the other classes are learning about and 
looking at their classroom environments.
Next term seeing we will be going on another classroom walk through
expect this time we will be visiting all the even numbers.

Does your school hold a classroom walk through?

Pukekawa Calf Club Day

Pukekawa School held their Calf Club Day on
Friday 21st September 2012.
 Room 3 - Kids with a view were so lucky to be invited to go along and join in their fun day!
Each year rural schools around New Zealand hold events that encourage children to take an active interest in the welfare and presentation of an animal of their choice. Originally the day was known as Calf Club Day even though children exhibited handcrafts, artwork and animals like lambs, goats and chickens.
Look at what you need to do to take a calf to calf day.


When it was 5:00, I sprang out of my bed and remembered it was Friday. Room 3 was going on a trip to Pukekawa school and it was a calf day! We went on Friday and we went by car and I was in Sienna’s car. A calf day is when children bring animals and tie them to their car. We patted a goat, lamb, chicken and a big black thing I don’t remember what it was called I think it was a calf. The children had to call their lamb to them but one just jumped over the fence! I saw a lamb eating grass and a child leading her lamb around a course. It felt really soft and clean to touch the animals. We went to visit a class room and they had flowers in unordinary pots and had soap carving and paper mache. My faourite was a bunny made of paper mache because it had real food and water. I felt really soft when I patted the animals.

When it was Friday and I sprang out of my bed and went in the bathroom and quickly brushed my teeth and went and had my breakfast. When I left home with my mum we went to school and parked and waited at the steps. Then it was time to go to Pukekawa School and Aryaan came in my car and we got there by a car and it was a 1 hour drive. When we got there we had to wait until everybody got here. When everybody got there we went and looked and the lambs and a lamb was sniffing my hand. A calf day is when everybody brings their animals over and do a course and they try really hard to train them and they try to win a ribbon. We looked at the father’s cake competition and there were so many cakes and we took some photos. There was a competition and the lambs were going to have a course first they do a zigzag around the sticks and go over the bridge and open the chain and then come back. I saw lambs, goats and chickens. I felt funny when I was touching the lambs because they sniff my hand. We visited 4 Classrooms, the first one had animals made out of stuff and the second was a small library and the third was pots made out of animals and it had flowers in the fourth room was vedgtables and animals. My favourite items were the animals. I felt amazing after all that I would want to go again someday. By Aum

DROP, COVER, HOLD NZ ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

Kids with a view practicing how to DROP, COVER, HOLD.

On Thursday the 26th September at 9.26 Point View School participated in the nationwide
ShakeOut Earthquake drill.
It is really important that we all know what to do if an earthquake strikes as New Zealand
lies on the boundary of the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates. An earthquake could happen at any time so we must know what to do so that we don't panic and 
so that we can protect ourselves from danger.
As Joshua explains to us on 
we must
