Dance




I’ve enjoyed the cha cha practicing and performing to the parents.

I’ve been challenged by some moves in the hip hop, especially the one that goes jump jump down, jump jump down, turn. 

I have surprised myself by how well I did in the cha cha moves.

I learnt that dance routines are really fun.

I found it really hard on my first day, because I wasn't there on the first day we started.

I would now like to learn more dances from Dean.

Coming Up


Hi my name is Blake, I am a farmer and I am going to tell you about something HORRIBLE that happened to me.


It all started last summer when I had to go to work. I said bye to my wife and two children. I had always gone back and forth over the bridge with my rusty old truck carrying stacks of new golden hay but last summer I got a lot more than I usually get.

I should have left a little bit of the hay at the farm.


I have lots of friends at work and one used to be a doctor.

So I drove over the bridge to load the hay and while I was there I had a little chat with the farmer about how old the bridge was and how it was still up. I had to go because I was a bit late so I had to rush. I went the normal speed over the bridge but I stopped in the middle because I heard a crack. I  kept driving then THE BRIDGE BROKE! I was so scared I peed my pants. The front wheels were hanging off the bridge. I closed my eyes. And then we hit, we hit the bottom of the river. I choked on water and blacked out. I saw two kids, I was waving at the two kids. But I was floating, SUDDENLY I got pulled into the body the kids were dragging...    

I felt the grass and then coughed up water, I opened my eyes to see my friend (who used to be a doctor) covering the bright sun above me giving me mouth to mouth. I pushed him away because it was gross. I got put on a stretcher and sent to the hospital for a check up but they said I was fine. So I went home to see my family relieved because I thought I would never see them again.

That was the worst thing that happened to.
