WELCOME TO 2009!!!

We are the new Literacy Class of Room 6 for 2009!!
We have been back at school now for a week and we have been looking at recounts during our Written Language time. Here are a few of our favourite recounts from this week......

As I woke up this morning, BAMM! the sun shone brightly. "Ahhhhhhh" yawning my head off and taking a great, huge stretch. I got up and walked over to the bathroom very slowly like an old man. When I reached the bathroom I brushed my teeth using my toothbrush with toothpaste splattered ontop of my brush. "Chchchchchchchch" my toothbrush went, sounding like a train on traintracks going through my teeth. I finally finished brushing my teeth and I looked in the mirror and my teeth were sparkling like golden stars in the night.

The bell shrilled as it was 10:30am, morning tea time had started and all the students had grins on their faces. They rushed over to their bags to get their lunch and hurried outside to eat their scrumptious morning tea. They relaxed on the seats as the sun shone over them like hot boiling water was pouring down on them. Gloria pulled my arm so hard that it felt like she pulled my whole arm right off. We walked around the school and past the senior playground. The senior playground was crowded like a heap of ants on a piece of old, yucky bubble gum. We walked past the field and watched as the boys played with their sweaty, red faces and girls walked around.

What an exhausting day it was! Birds chirping, sun shining bright and me feeling like ice-cream melting because it was so hot!
Walking to the church was very irritating as I was sweating like there was no tomorrow, but the weather was awesome to play in for the day. I hoped I could go for a swim so I could cool down a bit!
Step by step......walking so slowly, didn't know how long I could survive in the weather. Finally two steps away.......and then reached the front of the church. I just flopped down and relaxed till it was time to go home!!

Hello to the new Room 6
Lovely to meet you.
I have really enjoyed reading your recounts. I really don't feel like that is enough though - they have all made me keen to read more. Tyra I REALLY want to know what that was all about. Give us more....
And Brenna, Hifo and Simone, I enjoyed reading your comments on your 'old' class blog. Glad you are enjoying your new class. You will have a great year with Miss Gleeson.
All the best for 2009

Dear Room Six
Our students in Hamilton were very excited to have our first comments from an Auckland School left on the site. We would like to put a link to your page on our class page. Could you please leave a comment and let us know if that will be alright.

I really enjoyed reading your interesting recounts Room 6. Malia your description of your shining teeth made me smile. Victoria your recount made me feel as if I was walking beside you too. Tyra through your description I could feel the heat of the day. Well done! Fantastic writing! I look forward to reading some more of your writing this year.
