Life Education Trust

The Life Education Trust truck is at Brightwater School. We had our first visit this morning. We are learning lots of things about Air.

We learnt about all the things our body needs.
We learnt about where the air goes in our bodies. 

Penny Farthing Visit

This morning we had a visit from a man riding this penny farthing bike from Richmond to Tapawera. Maurice also recited some poetry to us.
It is called a penny farthing because he penny was a big coin and the farthing was a small coin just like the two wheels.

Mask Parade

On Friday it was the Nelson Arts Festival annual mask parade. Brightwater School joined in the parade. We did the Legend of the Phoenix. Ella was dressed as the Phoenix.
We were the fire. We danced and sang all around the city. We had lots of fun.
