My Sister Raewen

My sister is 6 years old and her name is Raewen. Her hair is black and her eyes are chocolate brown. She has plaits.

My sister Raewen loves to play with me on the trampoline. She loves to play handstands. Then we jump on the trampoline together.

I feel happy when my sister tells me secrets. When my sister cuddles me I feel special. I feel happy when my sister lets me plays Wii games.

Wash Your Hands

This week Room 8 had a visit from the Health Nurse who reminded us how important it is for us to wash and dry our hands so we don't spread germs and help stop the flu. Antonia and Maysun helped to demonstrate to Room 8 how you wash and dry your hands in the right way.

Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds and dry them for 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand rub.

Keep safe and healthy Pt England and all our readers of our blog!

DJ teaches the class about Garage Band

As part of our literacy cycle Room 8 children publish their written work on the class blog so that it can be read and commented on by an audience. This publishing can be done in many different ways, for example typing the story and creating a movie of the story. This week DJ has been learning how she can publish and reflect on her stories by using the programme GarageBand.

DJ has been teaching the rest of Room 8 how to use GarageBand. She has been showing them how to use it to publish their stories and also to use it to practice reading and to listen to how they sound when they read.


Listen to her great work and her reflection.

Franks Brother Whiti

My brother Whiti has shaved hair and he is deaf, he can't hear. He has
a rats tail and his eyes are brown.

My brother talks with his hands, it is called sign language. His
favourite game is X-box and he loves to go on the internet. Sometimes
he does the dishes and sometimes he cleans the house. He goes
to Kelston School and he loves going to Dominic's house.

My brother makes me feel angry sometimes and he makes me feel
happy sometimes. He likes to eat all the food and that makes me annoyed.
Sometimes he is kind.
