    Today was takeover day and i loved it! I was headteacher Mrs Grundy! I got to add things to the bulletin and crossed things off lists. Cole and Ibrahim were headteachers in the morning aswell. We all got to send an email to the governors and to a woman called Lizzy. We got to observe classes and take it in turns to sit in Mrs Grundy’s chair. At breaktime we all got a cup of tea (i like mine very milky) and oreos! Ibrahim got 5 Cole got 4 and i got 2. When Mrs Grundy got back with her tea all the oreos were gone! After break we sent more eamils and deleted advertisments on Mrs Grundy’s computer. Today was awsome!

Easter Island of Chile is famous for its monumental statues carved from the island’s volcanic rocks. Cueca is Chile’s national dance and Tonadas is Chile’s folk music.
