Thank you letter

Thank you for taking the time to give us presents and I would like to thank Johnson and Johnson and Motat and also The Variety Club for making this happen. I’d also like to thank all the people who took time off their jobs to rap us the presents. I really appreciated it and I will try and treasure my present as long as it lasts.

Its has been a very cool experience for me because I have never experienced people giving us presents during school randomly. It was such a great day being given a mystery present it was wrapped perfectly I loved it. Thank you very much to all the helper that made this happen and have a happy Christmas.

Action World

We arrived to action world I was eager to start doing all the activities but first we had to listen to all the boring rules! Finally we could do our first rotation our one was the jump n slide. I did the jumping activity it was very fun.

It was very cool my mate isara knew how to do backflips he was very good at doing them. Our next activity was rock climbing it was pretty cool because we got to star fish off the wall. I just couldn't wait for the next activity.

My highlight of the day was the crazy ladder I made it halfway until I fell down “ahhhhh” I screamed I screamed as I landed safely. I hope to all the readers will one day go to action world.
