My Weird Classroom

Pt England has been great and I have really enjoyed being here. The thing that is really different is being in a class made out of 3 classes. There is actually 3 classrooms, but they are right next to each other and they have no walls. So I have 3 teachers and like 90 kids in my class. It's really different but it is new to everyone not just me. Most of the kids have a different Literacy and Maths teacher than their home teacher but I have Miss Garden for my home teacher, literacy and maths. I have nearly fully got used to a weird classroom set out and having 3 teachers and so many kids all the time. I am looking forward to the rest of the year here and in my new classroom and my new school.

Movie Making

This morning,  I started to make a movie with Lesieli, Josephine, Iron and Jordenne. At the beginning, Miss Garden explained what we were going to have to do. Once we had the things that we needed, we headed over to Omaru Creek and started filming. We have filmed most of the speaking but we still a little more talking to do. Hopefully, you will be able to see it either on Monday or Tuesday:-)

I was standing on the island, trying to catch my breath, before I had to swim again to the other side.

Even when everyone was just standing in the pool not moving, I could still see tiny waves rippling on the surface of the water.

Getting out of the pool, my body was soaking wet so I had to dry myself a lot before going back to school.

One hot summers day, Mr S’s maths groups were all very excited to go to the G.I pools for their swimming lessons.

As I went to hang out my togs, the room was suddenly filled with the smell of chlorine and chemicals.
