Pet day at Bradford

I like pet day but I did not get a certificate on pet day. My pet died when I was six yeras old and my pet missed the pet day. I like the fairy dog it was cute. I love pet day.

Today was pet day. I took all the photos. It was so big. There were dogs and cats, guinea pigs, parrots, snails, chickens and birds. My favorite was the chickens because we have chicks too.

Spritzy Sprinters

For the last two weeks we have been discovering the best way to 'take off' when we start running races. First we "take our marks"... (walk up to the line).

Then, we "get set"....

Then, we "go".... run as fast as we can to the finish line. It is important to look at the finish line and not at the people next to you as that might slow you down!

Natty Narratives!

We have been learning how to write proper stories. This type of writing is called a Narrative. You need to have a title, some characters, a setting, a great beginning, a middle and an ending.

This week we have been working on making our first sentences really interesting and having a good beginning, middle and end to our writing.

We used this picture to come up with some ideas for our writing this week.

The Seeker.
Written by Ethan.

It was a hot day in the Castle of Rome. The castle was magical. It had wizards but one wizard betrayed the Romans. The people ran and ran. They were terrified but there was a hero to save the world. He was the Seeker.
The Seeker had a weakness. His dragon was evil now but he had a plan.
He went to the forest and found an army and went back to the castle and saved the world. The they lived happily ever after.

The Key to the Dragon.
Written by Rob

A dragon was flying home. The a boy showed up and the dragon said,
"Why are you so sad little boy?"
"I am the lowest in my school."
"Jump up on me. I can fly higher than the moon and you can come with me on a hunt for treasures."
The boy jumped on the dragon and he flew over the boy's house and looked for treasure. They flew to the dragon's home and told his Mum about the treasure. They found in on a rock. It was a trap and the dragon was trapped.
The dragon tried to get out but he could not get out with all his might but still he could not get out and was killed.
The boy got out safe and went back to the dragon's Mum's home and told his Mum. She cried and cried. The boy was sad and left.

The Legends of the Guardians.
Written by Salani

One day Toto and Nick were out by the lake when there was a big explosion. Toto flew with Nick as fast as he could go. The sky was fiery yellow and misty. The mischievous dragon hunters did the explosion. They wanted Toto but Nick didn't let them take him. Toto was his best friend.
nick took Toto to a land where people loved dragons. There were heaps of dragons. It was a place where the dragon hunters couldn't find Toto and the other dragons.
Toto and Nick bought a house where the could both fit.
They never saw the dragon hunters ever again.

high jump

We have been learning high jump at school. The highest we have jumped so far is sixty9cm.

We have to remember to; scissor kick over the bar, lift the closest leg to the bar first, land on your bottom and run very, very fast.
