Why you should visit our blog

This post is for Challenge 1 in the September 2010 challenge.

We are a class of 5 and 6 year olds who are learning how to blog.  You should visit our blog because we write posts about what we are learning in class and include pictures and slideshows.  We also like checking out other class blogs and leaving comments.  In Term 3 we found out about Magnets and performed "Cinderella".  In Term 4 we are finding out about what we need to do to help Endangered Species, especially the Takahe which was thought to be Extinct.

Today we did a play about Cinderella.  Mrs Ormsby played the piano.  We only had one step sister because we only have four girls in our class. 
The fairy godmother had a little helper called Buttons. Buttons is a really good dancer.  He danced so fast that all the photos were blurred.

Cinderella came to the ball on a scooter.  During the ball scene our gentlemen had to dance with stiff looking ladies. 
Justus was the reader. Room 7 and Room 8 came and watched us.  Mums, Dads, and Koros came too.  Emma, from the newspaper, watched us too.  It was cool.
On Tuesday the Kindergarten children and some people from Beattie Homes came to watch us.
Have you done a play?

Christchurch Earthquake Appeal

On Friday we had a sausage sizzle to raise money for the people in Christchurch.  There was a 7.1 earthquake which tore houses down.  When we looked at the pictures we thought it looked like a bomb had hit the city.
The cars got crushed.  The houses got cracked and the farms had big trenches in them.

Duffy Came to Visit

Duffy came to visit us.  He was awesome.  Duffy loves to read but he doesn't know what he wants to do when he grows up.

He played the "Occupation Exploration" game and Duffy got Trevor Jack, Legend and Rhyanh to spin the wheel.

We learnt nine big words.  They were information, application, comprehension, communication, concentration, coordination, relaxation, appreciation and imagination.

It was funny when they said "Open the box".
We laughed when the man said "Don't chuck it again" but Duffy threw the piece of wood anyway.
Duffy also went "Wwwwooooooooo!"
