KPE Episode 186 - "The Smallest Trolley Racer"

"The Smallest Trolley Racer" by Phillip Simpson
Last year, Tom and Mikaere came last in the annual school trolley race. Not second, or third, or sixth but dead last! But this year, they've got a secret weapon.... John and Colin from Room 18 have been reading this book from the Kiwi Bites series and they let us know all about the story. You need to listen to this podcast because NEXT year Pt England School is entering a crew in the Soap Box Derby. This starts out as a local event in our neighbourhood, but if we get through to the finals we would end up in Akron, Ohio in the United States of America!! How cool is that? We love competition here at Pt England School so we will be looking forward to the challenge of getting our own trolley built and racing it. So Year 5 students, you need to get ready for this, and if you want to volunteer to be in the team, let us know in the comments.....

  1. Hi John and Colin

    That was an amazing podcast. Your expression was clear and the story was awesome too. My favourite part was when the man next door was nice to the children. Lots of people should be like that should'nt they?

    Can't wait till your next podcast

  3. Hi John & Colin cool podcast. you had good expression and clear voices. I like the idea of a trolley race. At school, we should have trolley races at school when we make our own and race them to see what one is the fastest. Keep up the good work.

  5. Hi John and Colin that was a awsome book and I really liked it when Shopie never gave up aboutcompleting her dream.I think that Angus should not judge anyone.I think moral of the story is just follow your dreams and reach for the stars.

  6. Hi John and Colin amazing podcast it was outstanding and I liked it when Shopie helped the boys stay in the race that was really nice of her.I think that Tom and his friend was sad when they came last that must of been heart breaking.I think the moral of the story is go for what ever your dream is.

    Great story! I'm glad that Tom, Mikaere and Sophie didn't give up when they were faced with some problems. Trolley racing sounds like a lot of fun.
