Our Class Breakfast

On Friday the 23rd of November 2007 Room 9 had a Kelloggs' class breakfast. We had it in Room 9 at Nelson Central School. We had to be at school early at 8:20am in the morning. The class breakfast was because we won the Primary Class section of the TVNZ Net Guide Competition.

Our classroom looked different. There were tablecloths on our tables, bowls that had cereal in them, a toaster, Viv's party cups and spoons and knives.

We got to sit at the tables wherever we liked. One table had green cups (which was all girls), one table had orange cups (which was full of boys) and the other tables had pink cups (there were only two girls at these tables).

When we walked in Room 9 smelt yummy with food. We could smell toast cooking. We felt excited, a bit nervous, shy and terrific.

For our class breakfast we had Kelloggs' Just Right cereal, milk, strawberry and passionfruit yoghurt, toast, vegemite, honey, jam, butter, juice and fruit salad.

It took us until 9:00 to eat all of our breakfast. Afterwards we felt full, wicked, fantastic and happy. Some of us were even still hungry!

Our favourite part of the class breakfast was:
  • Just Right cereal - Sam, Brianna, Victoria, Jaime, Zoe, Lochie, Ben, Kerry, Donovan, Kyle and Molly.
  • Yoghurt - Joseph and Jackson.
  • Toast - Josh, Thomas, Jonti, Quade, Daniel, Tayla, Rohan, Jessie, Louie and Darcy.
We had fun at our class breakfast. It was amazing and cool to be at school eating our breakfast!!

Voices of the World - October

October's task for Voices of the World was to sing our National Anthem and create some pictures of our country.

We had a class vote and decided we would sing the first part of the New Zealand National anthem, which is in Maori. Then we brainstormed things that were iconic to New Zealand and to us. We drew photos of them.

Our voice and pictures were then put on Animoto, which made an awesome video. We hope you enjoy it!
