We have learned about a 3D shape called a cube. We now know that cubes:
- have 6 faces (or sides)
- have edges and corners
- stack easily
- make good blocks for building with
- are used to make dice

Today, we learned about using commas in lists. When we are writing a sentence and we need to make a list of lots of things, we use commas to separate them, instead of saying "and" each time. It makes our writing much nicer to read. We only need to use one "and" and that's just before the last thing in the list. Here are some sentences we wrote in daily writing.

We're getting excited about our upcoming recital of The Triantiwontigongolope. Mrs N is very, very proud of us, because we know ALL the words! We are now working on using our voices to make it interesting for the audience to listen to. If we change the volume of our voices in certain parts, or the speed we are talking, it makes the poem more entertaining. We are also learning to use facial expressions to express the emotions of the poem. We might have a practice performance at school assembly on Friday so that we feel less nervous when we're doing the real thing!
While we were practising our poem, we began to wonder what a Triantiwontigongolope might look like, so we decided to use our imagination, as well as some of the clues in the poem, and draw one! Here's what we came up with.
We have an extra long weekend coming up! All the teachers in the school are going to a conference on Monday and Tuesday, so they can learn lots of new things. We were surprised that teachers still have things to learn!
Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
