Jump Jam and First Aid

 On Monday a person who did Jump Jam came to our school, his name was Brett and he was 55 years old. He taught us some Jump Jam moves, we went over the bridge and then he came there too. Brett is very good at dancing. Dancing isn't just for girls, it is for boys and girls. He is very nice, at the end we got to ask questions to him. One of the questions was why is Jump Jam called Jump Jam?The whole school did Jump Jam with Brett and Brett put some music on. I like Jump Jam really, really much because you
can learn different dance moves. 'Jump Jam is my second favourite dance.'       by Sana

 We did First Aid with Catherine and learnt about the emergency services. Room 1 children also had fun bandaging each other.

Today is pyjama party day and it is so fun because we don't get to get dressed. I am wearing my unicorn pyjamas that Breanne got for me for my birthday and I brought my dressing gown and slippers. My slippers look like my Nana's ones but a different colour. My slippers colour is pink and black but I do not know what hers are.
Yesterday night Grandma came to our house, before she came we were watching Winks Club.         by Zoe

School Assembly


 It was Room's 1 turn to take School Assembly last Friday. Our presentation was all about 'ME.' We displayed our portraits,  there were comments about ourselves and from a buddy and the class recited the poem, 'The Mirror.' Joanne made us a mirror each which was real cool. Ruby led the assembly and Mary finished our part of the assembly by leading the signing of 'The Rainbow song.' Well Done Room 1!
