Catching The Bus In Samoa

 Today my group read"Catching The Bus In Samoa", My group had to read and say some things that are different in a bus in Samoa and in New Zealand. When we read a paragraph our teacher would stop us and tell us to tell her some differences in the story,Example-In Samoan their are no doors in Samoan buses but in New Zealand we have doors. Example 2-In Samoa they have plastic clear windows and in New Zealand we have glass windows. In Samoa if the bus driver knows you he'll drop you off at your house gate.

What's For Pudding

Today we read a story and the story was called. What's For Pudding. The characters were Rosemary and Joseph. They live in a small village called the Solomon Islands.The story was about making a traditional food with a tropical plant,cassava,a fire,rocks,wooden tongs,banana leaves.Rosemary was making some pudding with taro leaves and big rocks.She first put the pudding inside the hole and then she put the taro on top.After that she put the rocks on top of the taro leaves so the taro leaves don't blow away.

The Duffy Show

In the beginning Henry and rob came to Ruapotaka school a Duffy assembly.Here is a photo of Henry and Rob.Rob was giving out the books and as you see Henry is taking the photos.Rob also said that reading was good and especially reading can take us to places we want to go to,but only in our mind.Also Robs favourite book was called Asterix because his parents bought it for him when he was 10.

This was us holding our Duffy books.As you see you cannot see me in this photo,but at least you could see my books.My books are right next to the girl with the Tom Gates and the Geronimo Stilton books.You can look on the side of her shoulder you can see two books,one is captain underpants and goosebumps.
