We have been studying limericks this week by Edward Lear. Limericks are a 5 line poem and you have to make sure that:
Lines 1, 2, 5 rhyme
Lines 3 and 4 rhyme
The rythym is always the same

Our favourites were:

There was a young lady named Cait
Who went to the shops and bought bait
She went with her man
And her kids in a van
O that lovely young lady named Cait

There was a young nman called Sam
Who went to his Dad's to buy ham
He went miles and miles
And ended up in piles
O that poor old lad named Sam

There was a young girl with a braid
Who all she did was played
One day she got tired
And her boss got her fired
So she no longer wears a braid

'Cotton' the chinchilla

Cotton is our new female chinchilla. She is quite bigger than chocolate and her skin colour is lighter than his too. She acts really calm around people and is a sleepy
head. She lives in the same cage as Chocolate. Whenever we check on her she is always sleeping. Do not squeeze her or else she will bite and spit at you ! She doesn't like heaps of people around her. Well thats all you should know about her, photos to follow tomorrow.

Wellington Zoo

Room 3 Epidemic

Disaster hit Room 3 this week with all 29 students struck down with a mystery illness. Symptoms include irrational behaviour, uncontrollable tears, an overwhelming need to whack other people with noodles and an inability to concentrate for more than 3 seconds. Specialists believe students have become infected with end of term disease. Some students showed an initial resistance to the effects of the disease but after a visit to the zoo everyone succumbed to it's vile effects. Consequently, no students were available to write for our blog this week. So here is a slideshow of our favourite animals. Enjoy and we'll be back in a couple of weeks after the holidays.
