The Smarties have reached another milestone. Our blog has had 25,000 hits since February this year! We're amazed and excited! Thankyou to everyone who reads our blog. We've learned a lot from the friends we've made around the world and we find it very useful to check back to see activities we've done, or things we've learned in the past as revision. Hopefully, we'll continue to blog with our Year 3 teacher next year!
We did some more practice with similes today. On strips of paper, we wrote some similes then cut them up so one part was the "as (something) as" part and the other piece was the answer. We put the first parts out on the desks, then we were given some of the second parts. We walked around the room, reading each of the similes to see if the part we had matched. We needed to make sure they made sense. Things like "as green as a clown", or "as brown as the sky" were silly, so we had to keep looking until we found the right one.
In Art this afternoon, we started making paper mosaics. We were given the outline of a Christmas stocking and some strips of coloured card. We needed to cut the strips into little squares and glue them onto the shape, leaving just a little gap in between each piece. It's a bit like the tiles in bathrooms and kitchens. We didn't have time to finish them, so we'll do them again on Thursday and they're going to look great!
Also, thankyou to Alex's mum who came to help us in our classroom this morning!
Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
