Musical Madness!!!

Musical Madness!!! Yay, the term has officially started. This terms topic is "Musical Madness". Today we had our whole school immersion assembly where each year level/team performed an item based around the topic "Musical Madness". This term the topic is going to be based around composing music, how it fits into story telling and how it affects our emotions and lots more.

The assembly started off by our senior management team performing there item/song called "Musical Madness". They sang their song about musical madness and talked to the school about our topic and what we are doing this term. My favourites teams by far were Team's 3 , 4 & 5. I found Team 3's item interesting because it was about story telling through music. Their aim this term was to tell stories using music and sounds.

Moving on to Team 4. Team 4's item was movie of their teachers in car lip-syncing to different songs. Their aim this term was to find out more about music and make there own instruments. Then the best team (Team 5). Team 5's item was a live item of the teachers watching a movie and how music affects the mood.   They played a series of different music sounds and to the same movie and chose which one fits in the best. Their aim this team is how music affects the mood and how it fits into movies. 

Overall I am looking forward to Term 4. I am so interested and excited to learn more about music and how it affects our lives. I enjoyed this terms immersion assembly and I can't wait to learn about "Musical Madness".

Floundering Project!

FLOUNDERS!!! They caught more than twenty flounder's!!!!!!!!  Today the whole of Pt England School gathered together for our very first Floundering project. We started off at the hard courts where the whole school gathered to get ready to walk down to the Tamaki Estuary. Twelve Pt England students were chosen to go down to the beach and gather at least 4 baby flounders for our floundering project with Kauri Flats School. As we got to the place where we were watching the project we sang a few waiata's. We had a prayer in hope of catching flounders and staying safe in this weather. We then headed back to school. 

Flounder is a flatfish specie. In New Zealand most flounder live up to two years old with a few living up to five. According to fish scientists female flounder live more then male flounder. Flounder usually have an oval/flattened shaped body. If you didn't know flounder are actually carnivores meaning they are meat eaters. They eat things like smaller fish, crabs and shrimps. Here is a picture of baby and adult flounder.
