The School Picnic

Every year Pt England School has a picnic at the reserve. How many picnics have you seen with over 600 kids just all from one school? When Rm 17 got the notice slip and the permission slips to go to the school picnic we all couldn’t wait until then.

As soon as we got there Mr Burt talked to us for a little while until we could go and play. So I went straight to the water and dipped my feet in a puddle on a big rock. I stayed there for a long time then I finally left.

I went straight to the place were we put our bags and sat down with Antonio. Then we had some of our lunch. For my lunch I had a sandwich a packet of potato chips and some muffins.

All in all, it was a great picnic. Lots of fun, friends and family-my favourite kind of day.
At 2 o’clock lots of happy but tried kids wandered back to school. The picnic was a great success.

Monday Mornings

Today , Monday the 20th , I woke up really early excited that there is school today. So I stayed up in my bed and stared at the sky through the window.

Monday mornings nothing can be worst then waking up on a Monday. I woke up this morning to my sister shouting at me from the other room. So I got out of my bed and shouted at my sister for waking me up then I got dressed and walked to school.

Did you know that there are 52 Mondays in a year. Every Monday I always think I will never get up. Finally I‘m having a good Monday.

My Holiday Highlight

On Tuseday I went to the Pools. As soon as I got there I payed to get in.

I started walking inside when I got in through the doors and smelt the chlorine. The Men’s dressing room was on the other side of the pool. Walking as fast as I could trying not to slip on the wet slippery floor.

I finally got to the Men’s changing room. When I walked inside I went to a toilet and got changed in there. Everyone was wearing blue and red shorts. I was wearing blue and white shorts.

As soon as I walked out of the changing room I jumped straight into the pool forgetting to have a shower. So I got out and walked there. I was checking witch one was cold witch one was warm I hoped in the warm one. When it turned off I hoped in the cold one so it felt normal in the big cold pool.

I was bombing in the pool from the diving board my whole body touched the ground. Then I saw Antonio and James coming in through the doors. As soon as Antonio saw me him and his brother ran to and got changed at the chairs and then hoped in the pool. So we played and played until it was time to go home.
