The Rancid Family


Over the last few days, Room 9 have been reading a story called Evil Fred by Kylie Begg and Jacob Leaf. Apart from Evil Fred, the main characters are the Rancid Family. Have you heard of them? You can listen to a podcast that previous Pt England students have made by clicking here.

The children in Room 9 have been learning to write simple sentences that describe and explain what the Rancid family are like. Here are some examples:

The Rancid family are mean and silly. I don't like the Rancid family.
By Alexis

The Rancids are a mean, big and nasty family. The dad puts bad stuff in the supermarket.
By Zane

The Rancid family was a nasty and cheeky. The Rancid famiy are rude. I think Mr and Mrs Rancid are the meanest people in the land.

The First Room 9 Lunchbox Heroes for 2011


Every Friday Pt England School has whole school assembly. As part of assembly, we have Lunch Box Heroes. In order for you to be a Lunch Box Hero, you have to have three things in your lunchbox.

1. Bread: A sandwich or roll
2. One piece of fruit: apples or bananas or oranges etc
3. One healthy snack: Yoghurt or crackers or cheese etc

When children's lunchboxes are checked, their names go into a draw and during school assembly if your name is drawn out, you line up and get to pick a healthy treat from the big Hero box. There are only 10 winners.
This week these are the children who were lunchbox heroes: Zane, Michael, Uli, Cyrus, Maroroa, Antonia, Brooklyn, Ariana, Sarai, Mahana, Alexis and Taimana.

Today three of Room 9 Zane, Ariana and Michael were very lucky to have their names drawn. Well done! Who will be a Lunchbox Hero next week?
