My First Week at School

My first day at school was on Wednesday. It wasn’t my very first day though because I had four visits at the end of last year.

I am in Room One. My teachers name is Mrs Swanson. There are four boys and two girls in my class. I sit at the same table as Kayleigh. I have my own cubbyhole where I keep my hat and my pencil case.

On my first day Mrs Swanson took us to see the school pool and the library. I brought my swimming togs to school every day this week but haven’t been in the pool yet. At the library I chose a book about an elephant. I wrote the alphabet two times, once in upper case and once in lower case.

On my second day I wrote the letter K on a piece of paper and coloured it in with crayon. Then I painted dye over the top. We all took our letters to see this man called Mr Orr (mummy told me he’s the principal) and he gave us each a sticker. I also have a sticker chart in my classroom. I got two purple frog stickers on it today. One was for quietly finding an activity to do, and the other was for reading quietly. And we made envelopes for keeping gold slips in.

On my third day I had a picture of a girl and I had to put clothes on her using collage. Rooms 1, 2 and 3 all went to the assembly room and we sang songs. I didn’t know the song but it had something about Sunshine and Boogie in it. At lunchtime it was too wet to go out so Rooms 2 and 3 came and joined us in our room and we played games.

My Birthday

My birthday was very nice. I got some princess stickers and a spirograph. I made a lovely picture. I got a computer game called Spy Fox.

I went to the library school holiday program. I saw my friend Lucy and I saw Ben from school. I saw Zappo the magician. Victoria and Mummy and Daddy came too. I got given a book to keep and an award necklace.

We went to the swimming pool park and played. We had lunch at the movie theatre. My dad thought I was going to the dentist but he was wrong. I was going to the movies to see a movie called Tangled. It was about a princess called Rapunzel. I liked Rapunzel’s friend because he was funny.

I went to Fisherman’s Table for dinner because it is my favourite restaurant. I had a lovely salad and chicken. I watched the waves and the rocks through the window but I didn’t see any whales. I had a chocolate and caramel ice cream for dessert. I drank a Pink Panther.

Kowhai Park

I went to a cool playground in Wanganui.

I went there with all my friends – Caliope, Lulu, Tina, Phoebe, Wayne, and with my Mummy and Victoria.

I liked the water sprinklers and I liked the Helter Skelter slide.

I had Subway for lunch. I had an ice cream too, it was banana berry flavour. It was really sunny.

I liked the pirate ship very much. I liked exploring it.

I’d like to go back there one day because I’ve only been once.
