Harlem's Guy Fawkes Night

Here is Harlem's writing that he has written and edited with help.

Hey do you want to hear about my story? On Guy Fawkes I went to the Waitakere Fireworks show. There were marching bands, dancing, motorbike treks, a rescue helicopter and a wheel boat. It was night time all the lights turned off and the fireworks started. There were glow sticks and the fireworks were loud. After that we went to Action World.

Alien Madness in Room 9

Last week for writing we had a fun filled experience. As Antonia explained in her previous post, the children had to put their hands into a bucket that was covered and try and figure out what was inside. It was a lot of fun!
