Our First Day

Today was the first day of school! We are excited to be back to see our friends.

When we got to school we had to use the Smart Board to show something that we did in the holidays. Some of us went swimming, some of us went to the zoo and lots of people went to the movies. After that, we sorted out all our books and pencils and decorated covers for our scrapbooks. We did some spelling and we played the balloon popping game so we could practise reading some sight words.

Mrs N read us a pretend newspaper article that she told us was in the paper today, but she was just tricking us! It was about our first day of school.

Love from The Smarties


  1. It seems that everyone had a fantastic and fun filled first day back at school!

    We think that the blogging project is a great idea and will be fun for all. Our family members in Victoria will now be able to see what their grandaughter is learning at school and the blog will bring them a lot of joy.

    Happy blogging,
    Mr & Mrs B
