Recount of a Folk Dancing Festival by Alex


Hooray! It was Folk dancing on Tuesday the 17th of August 2010. We went to the hall to practice the grand March before we left.

We went by bus to the ASB Stadium to dance. When we got there we did line dances, circle dances and partner dances. Then we had morning tea. After Morning Tea we watched a stage performance.

On the way out we got some balloons. We hopped onto the bus and got back to school. I really enjoyed the folk dancing festival and would like to go back next year.

Yipee! On Tuesday the 17th of August 2010, Glenbrae School students and staff went to the ASB Stadium for a Folk Dancing Festival to have fun. We did lots of dances. After a while we had morning tea.

Hooray! On Tuesday the 17th of August 2010 ,Glenbrae students got to wear mufti to school. Everybody wore colourful clothes. We went to the ASB Stadium for a Folk Dancing Festival.

At the ASB Stadium initially performed the Grand March and we saw different schools. Some schools did their dances differently. We performed line dances,circle dances and partner dances. Then we had Morning Tea. After Morning Tea we performed a few more dances.

On the way out we got balloons from a lady and we ran out to the bus. Some of our balloons popped and the bus driver got a fright. I really enjoyed the Folk Dancing Festival and wish I could go back next year.

Narrative of Peter and the wolf rewritten by Danielle

Early one morning Peter opened the gate and walked into the big green meadow. Waddling behind Peter was a duck. There Peter saw his friend a bird.

The duck was delighted that Peter had not closed the gate for he wanted to have a swim in the pond in the meadow. Then Peter’s Grandpa came to the gate. He was disappointed that Peter had come out of the gate. The bird said: ‘‘How can a bird not fly”? Then the duck replied: ‘‘How can a duck not fly”? While the bird and duck were arguing a wolf came out of the forest. The bird flew up to a branch of the tree and the duck climbed as fast as she could. The duck got out of the pond and ran as fast as lightning. The wolf got closer and closer until he caught the duck and ate her with one gulp.

All the animals were sad. Peter had seen everything that had been going on. Peter had found a heavy rope. He asked the bird to go around the wolf’s nose. The bird was twisting round and round while Peter put the rope around the wolf’s tail. Then some hunters came out of the woods. The hunters were going to shout but Peter said, “Stop! The bird and I already caught the wolf.”

They took the wolf to the zoo. Peter’s Grandpa was pleased with Peter and they lived happily ever after and if you listen quietly you can hear a quack in the wolf’s stomach for the wolf had swollen the duck alive.

Narrative of Peter and the Wolf rewritten by Jonah



One day there was a boy named Peter who lived in the woods with his grandpa. Early one morning Peter opened the gate and went out. Then he saw a bird flying around the tree.

After that he saw a duck following him and the gate was opened because Peter forgot to lock it.
He heard the bird asking the duck :“What kind of bird you are if you can’t fly?” and the duck asked: “What kind of bird are you if you can’t swim?”

Then a cat came and he thought that it was a bad cat. He jumped higher and he missed.
A big wolf came from the woods.Then Peter’s grandpa told Peter to come into the house.

The wolf ate the duck and the cat ran away from the wolf. Then Peter climbed on the tree.He caught the wolf right on his tail and two hunters came to the woods. They shot the wolf and Peter saw them and he shouted :”Don't shoot the wolf. I already got it.” Then the hunters got the wolf in the zoo but the duck was still alive in the wolf’s stomach.

The Duffy Show

Yay! The Duffy actors came to Glenbrae School Hall last week. The students and staff were allowed to watch.

When it started the Duffy actors introduced themselves. Then two of the actors went to the back to change. Later Duffy played a game where you had to spin the wheel.

After that Duffy got these boards and he had to slide them into a box and longer words came out. Then the lady stuck it on the board.

I really enjoyed watching it and I got to learn more words. I can’t wait for them to come back next year.



The Duffy Show



Hooray! It’s Duffy Show. We sat on the ground and played a game called spin the wheel.

Chanel asked someone to come up and spin the wheel for him. It stopped at the number 7. Then Chanel read what was on the card. Hannah went up. Chanel was fixing her brain and we had a look.

After that Hannah got a free book from Duffy. I really enjoyed the show and I learnt many new words.
