Party Time!

Thanks to the mums, dads, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and grandparents who have helped get our Blogging Challenge off to a great start. We have had a LOT of comments in the last couple of days and it was very exciting to read them all this morning in class!

To celebrate our amazing 10,000 hits, we had a class party at recess today. We had chips, popcorn, Smarties, jelly babies, jellybeans, Clinkers and some lemonade too. It was lots of fun. We even had party hats which we were allowed to wear all day!
A very happy group of Smarties!

Mrs N's teenage daughters were helping in our classroom today and they were a big, big help! Hannah made us some playdough and we made Australian animals with it. We especially liked using coloured matchsticks to look like echidna spines! Alice helped us make habitat pictures. We needed to choose an Australian animal, think about where it lives and then tear coloured paper to make a collage. We were allowed to use scissors to cut out the animal we made, but all of the background needed to be torn paper. We loved it!

Here's an Animoto movie of our fun day!

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N

  3. Dear Smarties,

    You deserve a party for all your hard work! It looks like it was a lot of fun. It's great to hear that so many family members got involve! Fabulous!

    I noticed many students made echidnas. We don't have those in the United States. Can you share some facts about them? They seem very interesting. Do you see them often in the wild?

    Terrific work!

  4. I like watching the whirlpool where the snake comes up and shows its teeth.
