Immersion Assembly

Survivor is a popular american television show where new contestants are into win a vast amount of money. In order to win they need to adapt to the new lifestyle of living on a tropical island or be voted out. Once voted out they are forced to leave the island. This term Point England is learning about Survivor and how to Outwit, Outsmart and Outlast.

It is the start of term 4 so we had an immersion assembly. I love immersion assemblies because it is very interesting. An immersion assembly is held every term on the first day where teachers need to entertain the student and introduce our new topic.

Team 1 was very entertaining. Thanks to Miss King they held an exciting singing competition where they selected random student from our school to participate. As they played Katy Perry Roar and children sang, a movie was displayed on the projector of kids at the zoo interacting with animals. Marika was the winner of the competition. Marika’s prize was the chance to visit the zoo with Team 1. I agree that she deserved to win as she was very confident.

I also liked Team 5. They acted out their own Survivor episode. The host was Mr Wiseman while the rest of the teachers were contestants. Each teacher represented their own country. The challenge was a race to see who is faster at eating noodles with chopsticks and the winner would receive immunity which means they are safe from elimination.

The race began. Miss Clark is Asian and she had been using chopsticks since she was 3 years old, so she had a better chance of winning. The other teacher needed to adapt to this new way of eating.  Miss Clark was the winner.

I am going to enjoy this term because I love learning about animals and sadly this is my last term at Point England School.
