The Duffy Show

    The Duffy Show
Walt:I learnt that reading can take you to places you can never imagine. I also learnt that reading can help with your learning as well.

After lunch on Monday the school went to the Duffy show. We met the characters and their names are Sienna,T.J and Antonia. Antonia played lots of different characters. They put on a show to encourage you to read. When you read books they can take you to places you have never been before.

It all started after lunch we had to line up quietly and walk into the hall. We sat down in our lines while everybody was coming in we were playing Simon says. Then Duffy walked in and he went and introduced himself, and then we had to sing a special song. It was the Duffy song. When the song ended then the show started. It all started with Sienna when she hated school and hated reading books. Sienna needed help and Duffy really 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 places you can never imagine. Sienna gave up 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 library. Sienna had nowhere to go because she had no money and because it was raining. She was wanting to go into the shop but it happens to be a library. Duffy ran out of the library with a few books and Sienna said to Duffy “Wow you must have some money inside your visa card” but he replied “this isn’t my visa card it is my library card” she didn’t even know what was a library card 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 color, favourite sport, favourite food, her favourite shapes and the last question was what is 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 card. She went home knowing that she was actually good at something. Also knowing what she loved doing gardening. The show ended

At the end of the show I really about the fact that I was able to read. The thought of not knowing how to read would just not be a good thing. This Duffy show was beyond compare to all the rest I bet if you were watching the Duffy show it would encourage you to.
