3000 Hits!

We're very proud of our 3000 hits!
There was such excitement in our room today when we got back from lunch and looked at our blog and realised that we have had THREE THOUSAND hits! This is amazing as it's been just four weeks since we started our blog! We're very happy that people like to read about us :)

To celebrate this milestone, we did some special activities this afternoon. We took a total of 3000 steps. We used calculators to work out how many we would have to take each, for it to total 3000. There are 22 Smarties at school today, plus Mrs N, which meant we had to take 130 steps each and then Jack and Meg took 5 extra steps each to make it up to 3000.

We also did a fun group collage activity. We decorated the numbers 3, 0, 0 and another 0 to make 3000! We think they look fantastic. We demonstrated a lot of skills like teamwork, sharing materials, encouraging each other and sharing ideas. It was also great fun!

Earlier in the day, our daily writing topic was "An Alien at School". Here are some of our stories.

An alien came to school and everyone screamed and Mrs N screamed and the alien had lots of heads and I said "There is an alien!"
By Charlee

Once there was an alien at school. It wrecked the school. He tipped the bins over and the alien ate a banana and he fell over, then he went away.
By Taj

"Ahhhh!" I said. There's an alien at school and everyone ran to safety. "Run, run, ahhhh, ahhhh!" We don't like it when the aliens attack. "Run!"
By Raquel

If there was a giant alien in our school, everyone would scream and run away because they would be terrified.
By Allia

There was an alien at school and nobody liked it because he blew up things. He blew up towers and castles and people. He was mean. He actually liked people, but they didn't like him.
By Isaac

We're happy to report that our Kindness page has some entries already! We were on the lookout all day for people doing kind things.

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
