Fantastic Flowers

It's lucky none of The Smarties have hayfever, because our classroom was transformed into a paper plate flower nursery this afternoon! The school fair is coming up in a few weeks and we decided to make some decorations for the Plant Stall, which is the one our parents are organising. We were busy cutting and gluing and making beautiful blooms all afternoon. Our stall is sure to be the most eye-catching!

  2. HaTikvah ("The Hope")

    Israel's National Anthem

    The words to Israel's national anthem were written in 1886 by Naphtali Herz Imber, an English poet originally from Bohemia. The melody was written by Samuel Cohen, an immigrant from Moldavia. Cohen actually based the melody on a musical theme found in Bedrich Smetana’s "Moldau."


    As long as the Jewish spirit is yearning deep in the heart,

    With eyes turned toward the East, looking toward Zion,

    Then our hope - the two-thousand-year-old hope - will not be lost:

    To be a free people in our land,

    The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
    Kol ode balevav
    P'nimah -

    Nefesh Yehudi homiyah

    Ulfa'atey mizrach kadimah
    Ayin l'tzion tzofiyah.

    Ode lo avdah tikvatenu
    Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim:

    L'hiyot am chofshi b'artzenu -
    Eretz Tzion v'Yerushalayim.

  3. Hi Charlee,
    Your blog is so awesome!!! You have the best teachers ever.
    We went ice-skating on Sunday and it was so much fun but my feet were frozen and you had sore knees but you still rip at it and are so clever on skates.
    I love you precious,
    Mamma xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooooooooo
