Uh-oh! Here Comes Another Excuse...!

We've been writing narratives and this is one written by Liam.  Hope you enjoy it.
Uh-Oh! I Hear Another Excuse Coming!
Dear Mrs Plumm
My homework book is a bit messy today but this is why.
On Monday two big lions ran at me Mrs P. I tried to run away but they were gaining on me and caught me. That’s why my books all screwed up. 
On Tuesday my bedroom window  was left open and two monkeys smelt my squashed banana sandwich all over it, and so they chewed at it until there was nothing left.
On Wednesday Papa Smurf took my book to show the Smurfs what a homework book looks like. I fought him for my book for a whole hour because I knew you’d be angry.  He might be old but he sure is strong Mrs P!   It’s not a lie Mrs.  
On Thursday while I was crossing the bridge to get to the library an ugly old troll popped up from out of nowhere and pushed me off the bridge. My homework was in my school bag and that floated away downstream.  I searched for ages trying to find it, but sorry no luck!  You know what, I think that troll looked just like Te Ao!
On Friday morning I rode my bike to school. I had my homework sheet rolled up in my pocket when a boogey monster sprang out from behind the bushes. He pushed me off my bike and stole my homework book.  I chased him Mrs P  but he was way too fast for me.  Honest!
So Mrs P I am very very sorry but  I promise I will hand it in finished and much neater next week.

Marvel - The Book Of Knowledge Comes to Our School

'Maria'  aged 7 years...hahaha

Rocky, Marvel, Duffy sailing across the Seven Seas.

Earlier this term our school was visited by the Duffy Theatre troupe, and they brought with them, Marvel the Book of Knowledge. Marvel is a clever book who taught us all about the world. The Duffy actors used Marvel as a way of hooking us into reading. That was very clever because you can get lost in so many adventures inside books. Books can take us to new places, and experience new things, and to have fun along the way. The Duffy show was awesome and made us laugh all the way through. The three Duffy actors who came to present the show enjoyed reading and this has made us want to read more too.  Reading is learning, and learning is cool.

A Mean Aranui Performance!

Yee ha! Last Friday Aranui Theatre Company came to my school and presented our school with an awesome performance. They performed the Patutu Paiareherehe version of Rumpilstiltskin. It was so funny and interesting at the same time. Rana, one of the funny characters had us laughing right throughout the whole show. Their costumes were beautifully made. In the play the main character could turn harakeke into pounamu, the most precious stone.
