The Winter Olympics

On the weekend, all of The Smarties took a quick trip to Canada to see the opening of the Winter Olympics. We took some holiday snaps of us playing in the snow while we were there!

Here's Indi, Kelsi, Joshua, Jake and Charlee having a go at ice-skating. They were pretty good for their first time!

Kiara, Jack, Minnesota, Meg and Isaac built this fantastic snowman! They look very proud of themselves.
Alex, Caitlin, Allia and Kyle were great at sledding. Unfortunately, Taj wasn't very good at holding on, but he didn't seem to mind falling into the snow!

Tia, Noah, Catherine and Joel found a Yeti to have their picture taken with. Luckily he was very friendly!
Matthew, Raquel, Kate and Ella got a little carried away making snowballs! Fortunately, they're all fast runners and got away safely.

Love from The Smarties


  1. Hi There Year 2 Smarties - How lucky are you guys, getting to go to the opening of the winter olympics! I love the pictures Mrs N! I think it is absolutely fabulous that you have some 'penpals' in other countries. I am really enjoying the writing blog as well. Keep up the fantastic work Year 2 Smarties, Mrs N & Mrs M (we're all looking forward to your first post Mrs M!!).

  2. You look like you are having lots of fun in the snow. Wish I was there too... Isaac's Mum

  3. Hi Grade 2 Smarties,
    Hello from Canada. Great to hear you saw some of the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Weren't they fabulous? I love your Jib Jab photos... Maybe we can try them too. We would love to communicate with you.

  4. Dear the Smarties,

    I really like your blog. My favorite part about the blog is that you put the live weather in some countries.

    First of all, I really like this post. I think it is really cool how you put your student's faces on some pictures. My favorite picture was the yeti one because the yeti had a really funny smile.

    What is your favorite part about the post on your fantastic blog?
