Danica's New Glasses

Danica was away from school yesterday because she was picking up her gorgeous new glasses. She's pretty excited about them and is being very responsible about taking care of them and keeping them clean.

Over the last two days, we've been learning all about vowels. We know that the vowels are a, e, i, o and u but they make different sounds, depending on the words they're in and they can be either long or short. An easy way to work out if the sound is long is to see if you can hear the name of the vowel in the word. If you can, then it's a long vowel sound!

We did some free choice writing this morning and we wrote about some really interesting things. Be sure to check out our writing blog to read some of them!

We've been lucky to have lots of parent help lately. Thankyou to Jacinta, Tieg, Elise and Tatiana's mums, as well as Renee's dad. Lots of parent help means we can do lots of interesting things and we love showing them what we can do!

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
