This morning, we checked our blog and watched our Marapana video. We loved watching the kangaroos and guinea pigs and remembering all the fun things we did on our excursion. It's great to have a video of the things we saw, so that we can keep thinking about, and learning from it.
In grammar, we learned about collective nouns. These are special words we use to describe groups of things. We would say a mob of kangaroos, a chorus of angels, or a gaggle of geese. Some of them have very funny names! We made posters to put up in our classroom.
In Daily Writing we had a very difficult topic! Just kidding. It was easy! We got free choice writing today. Some of us wrote about the things we did on the long weekend. Some of us wrote about last week's visit to the wildlife park. Here is some of our writing.
When I grow up, I would like to be a wildlife warrior, like Steve Irwin, because when he died I wanted to take over so I can be one too and see Bindy Irwin.
On Tuesday, I got a fish called Nemo Num Nums. He's cool! I feed him one fish flake and I play with a puppy called Tazzy. She's a girl.
Yesterday, I went to Aqua Jetty and there was a big water slide and I went third. Alex went first and Alex was first to go in the cold pool. I was first to get in the hot pool. I went to the showers.
Yesterday, I went to Aqua Jetty and it was lots of fun. I was the first one to go on the water slide and there was a circle pool. When you go the right way, you will go fast.
Yesterday, I went to Aqua Jetty. It was fun. We went on the slide. It was long and fun. If you lean back and turn on the corner, you go faster around the corner.
One day, a fish was swimming in the water. A big shark came along and tried to eat it, but the fish was too fast. He went in a tiny hole and the hole was so tiny that the shark couldn't see him.
On Saturday, I went to Nannup and we took the dogs down in the truck. We went to some of my dad's friends' houses and we made a bonfire. We had sparklers and they had a dog called Rusty.
In Music, Mrs L showed us the movie Peter and the Wolf. We've been learning about it in class and about how each character is represented by a particular musical instrument. In Italian, we practised our colours some more. Mrs N is very surprised that we're so good at it!
Later in the term, our school has a cross-country carnival. Everyone in the school needs to run around the school grounds on a set course. We've started practising for it after recess every day, because we need to be very fit to be able to run the whole distance!
We wonder if we'll see any flocks of sheep, or crowds of people on the way home.
Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
