Hot Cross Buns

We had a day FULL of Hot Cross Buns!

We learned that Hot Cross Buns are a traditional food that we eat at Easter. They are spiced buns with a cross on the top, which represents the cross of Jesus.

This morning, we had a taste test. We tried Hot Cross Buns with fruit, some with choc chips and some with nothing in them. We needed to decide which one we liked the best. We made a class pictograph to record our results. We discovered that Hot Cross Buns with chocolate chips were the Smarties' favourites, but we all liked all of the types we tried.

Mrs N taught us a new song. It's called "Hot Cross Buns" which is a very old song from England. It was fun to sing. We recorded it so you can hear us singing.

We hope you liked it!

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N


  1. Dear Smarties,

    I enjoyed your song called Hot Cross Buns. I remember that song from when I was a little girl!
    The chocolate chip choice would probably be the ticket for me!

    Also, thanks for leaving a great comment on our blog about your state bird, the black swan. We looked at it today and left you a comment. We added your idea to the bottom of our quail post and hope that others will leave a comment about their state bird.

    Thanks for a great idea!

    Your friend,
    Mrs. Yollis

  2. Dear The Smarties,

    What a delicious test you had! We liked your song, we'll try to learn it too.
    Happy Easter!

    Hi Monica,

    Thanks for your comment! We're glad you like our blog. We think it's a lot of fun to do and we love it when people read it and leave us comments.

    It's almost Winter here. It's getting a little cooler now, but it's still nice outside. It never gets below freezing here, so winters are not as cold as they can be in America!

    Thanks again for commenting! Good luck with your studies.

    Love Mrs N and The Smarties
