Tanielu and Paulitia have recorded a podcast about a book they read at the end of last year when they were in Year 5 with Ms Squires. They never quite got their podcast organised in all the end of year excitement, so Mrs Lagitupu (their teacher this year) suggested they take another look at Knitwits and publish their podcast now.
So you are about to enjoy a very polished podcast by two talented presenters.
This is what happens in the story:
" On the worst day of 9-year-old Chas Kenny's life, his cat dies, he is kicked off the hockey team, and his mother announces that she is pregnant. Although he is unhappy about being a brother, Chas doesn't like it when Alice Pepper, his next-door neighbor and best friend, says bad things about the baby. In response, Chas skites that he is so excited he intends to knit a jersey for the baby! Sneaky Alice bets him $5. a day for life against her skull collection that he will not be able to make such a gift in time. As events happen during the following months, Chas grows really excited about the new arrival while he struggles to win his bet and prove to Alice that he is not a 'knitwit.' "Tanielu and Paulitia tell us about the story and talk about achieving your goals, which is the theme of this story. Their advice for us is not to take any notice of people who try to put you off achieving your goals because they don't have faith in you.
