GHS - Our Lives in Lockdown: March 31st

Arisa's Singing Class for Her Dog 

- beats Mrs Goodall's living room concert any day!


Eloise's Narrative - Enjoy the beautiful illustrations!





Eloise had no one to play with. Eloise had green eyes but one night Eloise snuck out and into the forest. 
Eloise walked deeper into the forest. Then Eloise came across a cave. Eloise walked inside. It was black in the cave. Eloise heard something which was “hurrrrrrr!”
Then something came out of the dark. It was a bear which was friendly. He’s was called Baby. But baby had a problem. He had no one to live with and Eloise took him home and they lived happily ever after. 

Moral of this story- 
Don’t go walking in the forest at night. 

Mrs Southgate's Noughts and Crosses Challenge

Lockdown Disco Night

One night we had a disco. We had glow sticks and a disco light (as you can tell.) We had lots of fun. We danced we sang we had music and had water (stay hydrated people.) As you can see in this picture, I am doing a crazy and weird dance sort of thing. I had a lot of fun at the disco. Have a great day (or night). Stay safe –

Take a photo (funny ones would be great!) and write a short blurb about how you are spending your time at the moment. Then email your work to me, Mrs Goodall, d.goodall@ghs.school.nz and I will put all (appropriate ;)) entries on the Treasure Chest. Make us laugh, or give us great ideas about what we could be doing! 

Who knows - you might go viral!!! 

This is what I have been up to:

I am training the dog. Floki might become an internet sensation by the time this lockdown is finished - what do you reckon?



You might think this is a bit lame, but trust me, it cost me a considerable amount of duck treats and I even might have become a tiny bit irritable, when I tried to get her to put her feet up on the washing basket and take a photo at the same time.... ;)

Any ideas for other tricks?

I don’t think she likes the hat trick … she doesn’t look very happy ...



What are you guys doing? Email me!

I will award house points for successful entries, so make sure to let me know your house and I will forward the information to Mrs Southgate.

Kia Kaha GHS!!
