Pet dragon writing

His week we imagined that we had a pet dragon. We talked about how we got it and what it was like and even what we would do with it. Here are some of our stories:

Tuesday 11th February one day I was running with my friends and then I saw a mysterious egg. I looked afte  the BaBy egg and then when I pulled out the BaBy egg and then it kan a Btfol Dragon and  her name was Rose she was the fastest Btfol Dragon Eva.

 I was home walking from school on a hot sunny day and then I saw a egg by a Tree .Then I ran and put it in my shirt and ran home so excited. The next day I waited for the egg to hatch The colour was green and sparkling. when I was at the swimming pool the egg hatched. The dragon was sparkling with beautiful eyes with a little mouth. I enjoyed my pet dragon and became best friends. We had a lot of fun and played tag and she was so fast.

On Tuesday morning I walking to keep me fit. I started to look down and I saw a gold little egg, I was large. I slowly bentdown and picked it up And ran back I went in the room. I sat there and it was already 10 o’clock. Just that minute I hear a cracking sound. I went to the egg and it started to hatch. After a while a dragon hatched out of the egg the dragon was blue and green it breathed fire and it has thick shinny scales. It hasn’t strong wings, the best this is he darts quickly. I went to school so I put him in my bag. He grew so fast all of my friends didn’t want to be my friend. I couldn’t take him home with no name, so I named him Pluto.

Awesome Codey Rocky Robots

This week on Monday we had the honour and privilege of welcoming Chorus and the am show to Pt England School. They came thanks to a nomination from Sam Carruthers. They also brought a giant present box, inside were five sets of Codey Rocky Robots.

On the day they arrived and since then my class and Room 16 a year 1 classroom have had a blast coding and experimenting with these robots. They have learned not only coding still, but a joy for coding and computer science and the skill to work together and it's only been two days.

We want to say a huge thank you to Chorus, the am show and all the people behind this kind gift. We hope you enjoy our movie and see the joy and excitement for yourselves.
