Today we had a African drumming performance, the highlight of the performance for me was going up on the stage and learning a African dance, then seeing the teachers going up and dancing. Mr Bartlet was really funny to watch, it was like he had no clue what to do, When the teachers finished dancing the whole school got up and danced around the room, When we got to do a free dance I danced with my friends acting silly

Then after that we had RED LIGHT GREEN LIGHT with Mrs Hoy its pretty much the same as Whats the time Mr Wolf, but it was red light for STOP and green light for GO. I really enjoyed this game because it was really funny when we got court moving and we had to go back to the wall and start again.
