The fotos you took were very good you are a profecional taing fotos. It was very funy when he made the voice of the cangaroo. The best parts were the one when why had to dig, the jaka was to very funny and fun, I cant beliebe that the jaka why made in the one that the all balacks make. I thought it was longer. the story of the person that took out one of his bones and used it as a hookmade me lots of impretion, its a very good legens to explain why the two islands have that shape. Its imprecionant how two islands that are sow near are so different, when hi said that australia is a donat I started to be hungry and it made me remember the last dounut I eat and it was delisiouse. I want to know what was he always drinking, I forgot to ask him that.

Hey Miss Ale!
I really loved to hear Andy he was SO funny telling stories. And even though he told us only one story I really enjoyed hearing it! It was very interisting to know about his culture and well known haka was very funny! The coolest part was when some people could go and dance with him the HAKA. He made really strange movements for the Koala and the Kangaroo and strange voices! WAS REALLY FUNNY!!! He was dressed with lots of live colors and he was very very very very very FUNNY! And he was right(like his name said)about his name it was very scottish(Andrew Scot). And his father and mother the two came from the United Kingdom! Hope we can see him again with another funny story and actions!!!

Hi miss Ale I loved to hear music within the great slide show I was rememering and laughing about his strange and weird expresions and how did he talk and told stories also I told my mother that was seeing the pictures that he told us the New Zelandshow haca and how did he do body language. Shame I was only in half a photo because when you took the picture of agroup siting at the back I was so close to the wall that I appeared In half a photo. Andy was a very good story teller, I wish he could come again or a new story teller.

bye bye

Dear miss ale!! The photos are very good.. I have a lot of fun hearing the story of koala and the kangeru, in the way he interpreted the sounds you could understand it much better.... I knew a little bitt of the "KA MATE KA MATE KA ORA KA ORA" but I learn much more the other day.. When Andy was telling the story apart of paying atencion I was thinking that sometimes in normal life it happens also but not so exsaterated!! I hope you had enjoied it like I enjoyed it!!
See you tomorrow..

Ale I loved the stories that Andy narrated it gived a touch of expression that inpacted me, I didnt have words, I felt awesomed and I couldnt really distract in something else while he was narating. He made us make movements that made us get dipper into the story. I felt as if I was living it, he expresed with the voice every sound in the story and it was really fun to see his face!
I had lots of fun and im still inside of the story I nearly dream with it.

I liked very much that Andy could come, we learned about New Zealand and of australia because it shows you the message: you must never be unfair to others. And I liked when he said at the end,, "thats why cangaroos and koalas are never together" that was very funny. First I thought "what is he going to do with all that words??!!" And then when we finish I understood it was that "dance" they did the rugby players that meant if you dare come fight with us or something like that.. the movements were very funny. "he dug he dug " we all laughed a lot and we all enjoyed the mini-dances . I think it was called haka or jaka or something like that. i really enjoyed it.
The photos you prepared are great! you can see us doing the haka /jaka(how ever you write it)

I think Write was wonderfull i laughed alot i loved when he did koalas voice and the expressions he used. He always new what to do to make it look real he was great!
He made lots of body movments and different kind of voices apart of that the story that he told us was great funny, nice, intresting and it has a hoop that catches you to now what will hapen next if they will find the water but apart of that it also teaches you something very importanat that is: Not to lie, help others, and if you say youll do something do it!
SEE YOU

I realy likesd to hear this man it was very intresting the story of his life and the cangaroo and Koala story hearing it was better than reading it. The way he expresed played the characters made a us laugh his voice was very clear and you could understand every single word he said. Also realy enjoyed how of starting in England he went to Newseland and then he went to Australia and conected his personal story to a leyend of a country that had alot to do with him. Also I had so much fun singing the haka that now I sing it all the time

Hi Ale!!!
I loved the storie that Andy the story teller told us I liked how he expresed them and how he acted them (he was so funny). I also liked the part when we also had to act saying at the same time this: "and they walked..." "and they walked all day and they walked all night" "and he dug and dug, he got hoter and hoter." It was very funny!!! It was also very interesting because Andy (the story teller) taught us a little of the geography of New Zeland and also the language they used and why they called New Zeland like that. He also taught us a haka and it was very fun because first he told us from where was the haka and then he told us what it meant and then he taught us the movements and then we preformed it three or four times (i think so) and then he called up four kids and sang and danced the haka with the four kids. The best part of the haka was at the end when we had to stick out our tongues and put a horrible face. The best part I liked of the story was when we had to do the movements and when koala triked kangaroo because he didn't want to dig so he triked kangaroo by saying that the hole that kangaroo dug was the most perfect hole he ever saw, another trick was that he wasn't as strong as kangaroo so he said to kangaroo to start to dig and that then he would dig and the the third one and least was that he had very little to dig and that then he would find the water and that koala didn't want to dig that little part because he would find the water and take the glory from kangaroo by only diging a little and tiny part of the hole, and also when koala started to drink all the water and kangaroo started to pull from koala's tail because he also wanted to drink water and koala didn't let kangaroo drink so kangaroo pulled so hard from koala's tail that he pulled of the tail of koala!!!
