New Topic For the Term

As soon as we got into the Hall I saw that all of the teachers were dressed up for this term’s new topic. Most of the teachers were dressed up as pirates.
Before the teachers did any items Mr Burt showed us a little movie to give us a clue about our topic this term. We found out it is called Mighty Mariners.
Suddenly It was time for Team 1’s Item. They had made a movie with an animation. The animation was about the 7 waka’s coming to New Zealand. My favourite team was Team 5 because Miss Tito was funny when she pretended to be Jessica Watson. She was a person who sailed around the world by herself. The Assembly made me want to learn more about Jessica and what types of sails and boats mariners used. It was great finding out about different sailors that had travelled to places they had never been before. Chengho is one of our mighty marinas we are learning about. He had 62 big boats that he used for holding water, gardens and horses. This meant that they could go on longer journeys to explore the world. Did you know that he also had 238 smaller boats to carry 27,880 people with. I enjoyed the Immersion Assembly.I can’t wait to learn about Mighty Mariners. I’d love to hear about other people’s favourite Marinas.


  1. Hi Ashleigh,
    I liked reading about the Immersion Assembly on your blog. It's always lots of fun dressing up for our Immersion Assemblies (except when I can't think of anything to wear)
    It's great the interesting things you have already learnt about Cheng Ho. I think it was pretty amazing how organised those Chinese fleets were. Keep up the great writing.

  3. Hi Ashleigh,
    I love the recount that you have written about. All I remember was Miss King looking for Jhony Dep I don't know how to spell it but I do know the name. I think that Mrs She knew what she was doing.Keep up the good work.
    Love your friend Rita
