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.
Today 3 ladies from ALTRUSA came to our school to present us with some gifts for our A.V.A.I.L.L. programme. This is a type of reading activity involving a movie with subtitles. They gave us some movies like...
• Because Of Winn-Dixie
• Horton Hears A Who
• The Tale Of Despereaux
• The Water Horse
• Meet The Robbinsons
• Earth The Power Of The Planet
• Nim's Island
They also gave us some books including..
• A Day With Wilbur Robinson
•Horton Hears A Who
•Because Of Winn-Dixie
•The Tale Of Despereaux
•The Water Horse
The teachers got something too...It's pretty cool, most of the children want their present...it's a manual for AVAILL and the answer booklet!!!
