Tony Williams Duffy Assembly Recounts

Yesterday the author Tony Williams came to talk about his books for our Duffy Hero Assembly.

We wrote a recount story about it and Mrs A wanted us to include our opinions and emotions about what we saw and heard.

Here are our best sentences:

Xyen: Right away you could tell he was crazy, weird!

Kingston: Kini and Tony were funny people!

Ashleigh: I was so excited about my books I just wanted to go right up to the stage and grab Room 3's books.

Maraea: I just wanted to spew up like a baby!

Teina: Oh my gosh! This man is crazy!

Josh: Yesterday it was very well done

Meagan: I saw a man sitting on the seats with a leather jacket and a mysterious hat.

Danielle: Tony shared some wonderful knowledge with us.

Aesha: When it was his turn to speak he jumped out of his chair!

Jessie L: He threw his jacket into the crowd.

Navuga: Tony Williams is a brave and weird man.

Juan: Tony Williams is funny and he made us laugh.

Isiah: First we sat down and Mr Greer introduced Tony Williams.

Kini: Suddenly Tony stopped and stared and I was like, WHAT?!

Jessie S: When Mr Greer introduced Tony Williams I thought he was crazy!

Maia: I loved it when Tony said that teachers brains were smaller than dinosaurs brains!

Rhys: I thought that he was going to say PIZAZZ and perform a new show when he leapt off the stage.

Jonathon: He was kinda weird, funny, hilarious and amusing.

Jameel: Tony stood up with his tummy leaning forward and said, "Sup Bro?"

Harley: When Kini went up he was hilarious like Tony Williams.

VJ: OMG we've got the coolest person coming to assembly!

Australia to build emu underpass!

We read an interesting article about emu underpasses on Kiwi Kids News today.  We discussed the new words we were introduced to in this article.  Here is what we decided they meant:
