We are Superstars!

Yesterday was so exciting! It was the day of our poetry recital and it was fantastic! We arrived at school, packed up our lunchboxes and water bottles, checked that our uniforms were extra neat and tidy, had a quick practice, then it was time to get on the bus. It took us an hour and twenty minutes to get to where we needed to go, which was a long time, but we were very well behaved and Mrs N was proud of us.

We ate our morning tea on the grass when we arrived, then, after a quick drink, we took our seats in the hall. There were five other classes from different schools also performing. We watched some of the other performances and then it was our turn! Some of us felt very nervous, but we were all very excited to be getting up on the stage finally. We were FANTASTIC! Everyone was so pleased with us and we got a really good report from the adjudicator. Our class received a certificate to put up in our classroom too! We ate our lunch, had a run around, then got back on the bus to go back to school.

We learned so much about public speaking and hope we can do it again next year!

After all the excitement of yesterday, it was hard to get back to work today, but we managed. We talked about water and how precious it is. It's very important to look after the water we have and to keep it clean. We came up with a list of reasons for looking after our water supplies and another list of ways we can keep it clean and use it wisely.

After lunch, we went out with the Grade Ones to practise team games for our athletics carnival, which is on soon. We played Tunnel Ball, Leader Bag and the Flag Race.

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N


  1. Dear Smarties,

    ☀ ☀ Congratulations! ☀ ☀

    How exciting to get an opportunity to perform for a big audience! Public speaking is an important skill to have in life, and you've already mastered it!

    Terrific work! And now...I'm going to go drink a big glass of water so I stay healthy!

    Your pal,
    Mrs. Y♥llis
