My favourite book is.....

Willie and Hugh

On Tuesday Willie was walking along the path.  He had no friends.  Then he walked away with his head facing down and there came a jogger.  Willie and the jogger were looking back, then, SMACK!
Willie said, "I'm sorry." "No, I'm sorry," said the jogger.  I wasn't looking where i was going.  My name is Hugh, do you want to be my friend.  "Sure," said Willie, and they walked away happily and they ran with the other apes.

Max and the Chocolate Chicken

My favourite book is Max and the Chocolate Chicken.

I like this book because Max ate the chocolate chicken by himself and the easter bunny came back and he shared it with everyone.  Max was really excited that it was Easter that he dressed up to find some eggs.
Max's sister found the most eggs.

Whaea Kirsty's Dog

4 weeks a go Whaea Kirsty came to room 1 to visit.  Whaea Kirsty didn't just come by herself she came with her dog named Hooch and her husband named David.  When Hooch came in everyone was scared of him, because he had sharp teeth and he was big.  When Whaea Kitrsty came and sat down she told us all about Hooch.  He goes to dog shows and he jumps through rings.  He wins medals because he listens to Whaea Kirsty.  Because he wins medals David trains him everyday.  When David trains Hooch he has to always listen to him and follow instructions.  When ever he is good he gets a special snack.  When we finished asking questions we got into a circle so Hooch could come around and we could pat him.  We could  kiss him too.

We have been drawing Room 1’s outside area for art.  Whaea Laura took a photograph of Room 1’s outside and then she put it on the electric whiteboard so we could draw it and colour it in. We have been making it colourful. It has been interesting for me.

We’ve been learning about our school rules. When the first bell rings we go have a drink and go to the toilet.  But when the second bell rings it’s learning time and if you want to go to the toilet at learning time you will have to wait because we have other stuff to do at learning time.
