Walking School Bus

Glen Innes School has 3 buses their names are Jitterbugs, Goody, Goody gumdrops and Miss Betty’s bus. The teachers for the three buses are, Miss Lammas, Miss Matt and Miss Betty. Whenever the bell rings the children go to their buses. When they get to the buses they assemble next to the hall. Some buses are under the tree or next to the bench facing Room 4.

The bell always rings at 2.54 pm that is when the the children go out of class and go to their buses. Sometimes  when it is raining they stand under the shelter or under the massive tree. When it is raining they sometimes get picked up by their parents or walk in the rain with raincoats.

Every bus goes to different places. The Jitterbugs go to Epping St.  The Goody, Goody gumdrops walks to Castledine and Miss Betty’s bus goes to Taniwha St.

Jump Rope

In the morning Room 9 went skipping. It was fun. When Room 9 begins skipping they do forward jumping 20 times. Next they do backward jumping, it is fun. After backward jumping Room 9 do double-unders. Some of the children in room 9 can do double unders and some can’t. Criss cross is the the same as double unders.

After doing criss cross we have a competition to see who can jump for the longest. it is hard. When Room 9 does skipping they sometimes get sweaty or get tired. It is fun doing skipping because when Room 9 does skipping their legs get sore.
When Room 9 were also finding who could jump for the longest. Wesley won.
In second place was Hilda - Rose and in third place was Tane.

In three or four weeks we are going to skip at the Glen Innes Centre. We are going to walk from School to the GI centre. It will be fun skipping at GI because there will be lots of people. watching you.
