Anxiously waiting in a line to go in the Life Education caravan, Lynn told us to line up from biggest to smallest, After a minute Lynn led the line into the caravan we all sat down. When we sat down we started talking to Harold he asked us if we can help him with his homework then Lynn said to him “ok” we will do number 1-3 and you do number 4 so that it can be fare. One of the homeworks we did was learning about body parts and other stuff. The last homework we did for Harold was about sorting the food.

One News

On Tuesday after lunch room 16 and Point England School had the opportunity to be on One News. I was so amazed when they came in our Classroom! They were here to talk about why we have Netbooks and other schools don't because One News is pushing the Government to let all schools to have Netbooks to make it fair. Some schools don't have any Netbook because they can’t pay their fees. I was really excited because it was on the news but I didn’t watch the news because I was at netball.
