My first day at school in Year Five First, I walk in to my lovely school. I then find my friends and we go to our line. After lining up, our teacher lets us go in to the wonderful class room and he tells us a bit about himself. Then we introduce ourselves to him. We all then listen as he reads us a book called, "Staying Alive in Year Five." PS it is very funny. After the story we go into groups of two to write some rules for the classroom. I got to team up with my friend Madison.
Caitlin, too, seems to be enjoying John Marsden's book and one of the writing activities inspired by its main character, Mr Murlin:
My favourite thing was writing a persuasive text about why I am not a boring person. I am excited and know this year is going to be fun.
Daniel says he is looking forward to a successful year. He wrote:
In the last few days, I couldn't wait to see my new teacher, my new class and friends. Now I am so happy and looking forward to year 5. In the first few days, we have played some games. We have learned about lots of different patterns such as square numbers, triangle numbers and much more.
This from Joey:
Hmmm back to school, new grade, new teacher and new kidneys (sic: kindies?) joining. Well, I guess that's the school life style pattern. Wait a sec, talking about patterns, in school I am learning about number patterns....
