Trying Something New

Today, we did daily writing on our writing blog. The topic was free choice, which we were very happy about! We had a look at 2KM's blog and saw that they were learning about HTML code. We decided to give it a go too. We learned that to make a heart you type & hearts; (but without the space after the &). It doesn't change it right away, but when our posts were published, we could see the hearts. Some of us put them into our blog writing. ♥ ♥ ♥

In Library, Mr B read us Hairy Maclary's Bone. Hairy Maclary was walking back from the butcher with a bone. All the dogs in the neighbourhood were following him, but they got stuck on the way. He managed to get home with his bone, safe and sound. We thought it was a great story!

In Maths this afternoon, we used counters to find lots of ways to make 20. We used something we haven't tried before. It's called Primary Pad. It's an online word processor that we could all use at the same time. We could see what everyone else was writing, while they were writing it. Everybody liked it because it was fun, we each had a different colour for writing with and because we could share the answers and ideas we came up with. We also love doing addition sums!

We are learning about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. These are things that help us to be good people. The Fruits are joy, faithfulness, gentleness, peacefulness, love, kindness, patience, self-control and goodness. We are especially thinking about love at the moment and how we can show it to our friends, family and even people we don't know. We can:
  • make friends with new students
  • let other people play with us
  • forgive our friends when we have a fight
  • help younger students

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N

  1. Dear Smarties,

    Good job on HTML codes!
    At first it can be very tricky but when you get use to it it gets pretty easy!
    I hope everyone thinks HTML is easy!
    I hope everyone will endup to be a ★ at HTML!!!

    I have some questions for you.
    Does everyone know how to do HTML codes?
    Whats your favourite HTML code?
    Do you know how to do a star?
