We walked into the hall and I noticed all of the teachers were dressed up as fairy tale characters. I saw a fairy godmother granting wishes, a grumpy Shrek, and all sorts of characters. We were in the hall because it was the first day of term 3. “Yay we were going to learn about fairy tales”.
When Mr Burt came into the hall he was wearing clothes that a prince wears. As he was walking down the hall he said “Have you seen my princess?” Just then in my head there was a “CLICK” and I knew what he was talking about. He was talking about Cinderella! I also knew it was Cinderella because in his right hand he was holding a glass slipper. Mr Burt I mean the Prince was so sad about where his princess had gone. Next he told all the team 1 teachers to come up on stage.
The best teacher I liked from team 1 was Miss Wild because she was acting like Little Red Riding Hood. Mr Burt then welcomed team 2. I liked Miss Va’afusuaga best because she acted like Puss ‘n’ Boots and she actually spoke like Puss ‘n’ Boots.
As Mr Burt introduced team 3 an exquisitely beautiful Cinderella, who was Miss Garden, walked on the stage with her flouncy, flowing train swishing from side to side. There also were the 2 hideous and jealous stepsisters squabbling and disputing over the gumboot and the broom stick which had a image of Brad Pitt on it. Mr Burt said to Cinderella “ You are not my princess because there`s are a huge difference between a gumboot and a glass slipper!” Cinderella said “Oh” disappointingly and stepped off the stage.
This is when team 4 came up. There was a grumpy Shrek, a kind Fiona, a Pied Piper of Auckland and a magical and mysterious fairy godmother. The best fairy tale character I liked was the fairy godmother because I really like magical things and also because they are so mysterious.
Suddenly an Evil Queen strode angrily down the aisle. The Evil Queen had a sinister stare and snapped condescendingly at anyone who talked to her. "She's so vain!" I said in my mind. In her bag she had a pig's heart, a mirror and an apple, a poisonous apple. I knew the story of snow white and the seven dwarfs. She chattered "If you know why I have these 3 things in my handbag come to my palace and record it in to my magical camera".
Mr Burt then introduced what we were learning about and then we left. I really liked how we are learning about fairy tales because it will be so much fun this term also because I think we will be doing plays of fairy tale stories.
