Monique, Savannah and Lottie spent some time at home creating some art for the Wearable Art competition at the Youth Council. They showed it to the rest of the school at the Certificate Assembly on Friday. Their art will now be displayed in the school library!

Every day for 2 weeks, the year 4, 5 and 6 went swimming. I’m level six with Archie, Penny and Sam. I found out that we all struggle with breast stroke except Sam. At the start for our warm up we do 2 lengths of everything.
Each lesson is half an hour. The first bus
leaves at 1:15pm and the second bus leaves at 1:45pm. People at level 4 down go on the second bus but I go on the second bus because I’m level 6. I quite enjoy swimming.

PictureThai Cultural Exhibition
In Ashburton Borough School a bunch of children came from Thailand. They put on an exhibition for us and we asked them lots of questions. They were from all over Thailand and hardly knew each other. I only know a couple of their names: Matrix and Born. The Thai children have special people who look after them. I can’t understand them that well but I know they’re trying their best to learn English, besides they can’t understand me that well either! Matrix told me that Fishzilla was one of his favourite fish. One of the most common jobs in Thailand is a farmer. Nearly all of Thai food is spicy and well mixed together. The Thai people are only here for a limited time so we need to learn as much as possible from them.
