Christmas Celebrations

Today Class 19 had a party because it is nearly the last day of school.  Tyson's mum made a very big chocolate cake for us with chocolate icing and decorated it beautifully with hundreds and thousands and strawberries.  Thank you very much Tyson's mum for helping us celebrate nearly the end of school with such a delicious cake.  We also had popcorn, chips and iceblocks.  It was
a great way to celebrate.  By Trinity and Tyson

Football Festival

Each Tuesday we have been learning how to play football.  Our teacher's name is Ben and he makes it great fun warming up and learning the skills we need.  At first it seemed hard not using your hands but we soon got use to it and we can now control the ball much better.  We had a football festival to finish off the term.  It was great fun playing our friends.  By Trinity

Wacky Hair in Class 19

We came to school with wacky hair on Wacky Hair Day!  I had red colour sprayed on my hair and Jasmine had her hair in tails that stuck straight out.  Her mum put lots of gel on them.  She found it rather hard to put her hat on at lunch time - hats and wacky hair don't go! By Madison and Jasmine.
