My amazing school

The things we have at school are:

  1. A science teacher who also teaches us other things like maths
  2. A fabulous classroom
  3. A hall for doing lots of fun stuff like PE practice (when its raining), assembly and sometimes we get to watch movies there
  4. A PE teacher who gives us lots of cool activities 
  5. A chess club on Tuesday at lunchtime. It takes nearly the whole of lunch time to play a game. Once I got a silver medal.
  6. An art class room and teacher. She is fabulous because she also lets us play the piano and we get to do really awesome drawings
  7. Mini-halls and portables
  8. 4 roads around the school
  9. A vege garden
  10. An oval for sport activities, footy and soccer and Kelly Sports
  11. A giant chess set. The pieces are taken out on Thursdays and Fridays.

    Me and Catdog

    Thursday 10th June
    On Thursday I took Catdog to Milli's.   It was great fun.  My teacher Rikki, as you can see in this photo, is very nice and played a game of bingo with us.  We also learn about Hebrew.

    Tuesday 8th June
    On Tuesday I went to swimming lessons.  Catdog ate some cheese flavoured rice wheels with me.  Dog was very greedy, so he ate most of them.

    Saturday 12th of June
    Me and Catdog went to Sorrento with Mum and Dad and Nanny and Pa and Uncle Brian and my sister Ella.  We played a game of Monopoly Junior against Nanny and Pa and we came second.
