Duffy Theatre

Walt: I learnt how to write a produce a piece of writing and to follow the structure

After lunch on Monday our school went to see the Duffy show.  If  you don’t know what a Duffy show is it’s a show where people perform and show you that you are lucky to know that you can read. We met the characters and their names are Sienna, T.J and Antonia she actually played lots of different characters. They put on a show and encourage you to read. When you read books they can take you to places you can never imagine.

So it all started after lunch we had to line up quietly and walk to the hall. We sat down in our lines and while everyone was coming in we played simon says. Then Duffy walked in.  He introduced himself and then we sang a special song. The Duffy Song. When the song ended the show started. It all started with Sienna hating school and hating reading. Sienna needed help and Duffy wanted to help her so he went over to her house and she said to Duffy “I hate reading” Duffy was really surprised and said “ How can you not like reading, reading can take you to place’s you can never imagine. Sienna gave up and said i’m not good at anything.

One day Duffy saw Sienna walk past him when he was in the library. She hated reading so much that she didn't even know it was a library.  Sienna had nowhere to go because it was raining. She was wanting to go into the shop well she thought it was a shop but it happened  to be a library . Duffy ran out of the library with a few books and said to him “Wow you must have lot of money in your visa card” but he replied “this isn't a visa card this is my library card” she didn't even know what a library card was so Duffy showed her by taking her in the library and showing her how to read.

They asked her a quiz like what’s your favourite colour, favourite sports, favourite food, her favourite shape and the last question was what’s your favourite movie she answered Harry Potter. They found her a book about Harry Potter and she started reading as soon as she read the first paragraph in the book she fell in love with reading. Sienna started to love reading she even got her own library card. She was so in love with reading that she even showed her mum how to read and she got a library. She went home knowing that she was actually good at something. Also knowing what she loved to do gardening. The show ended.

I learnt that reading can take you to place's you can never imagine. I also learnt that reading can help you with your future.
