Delicious Blueberries

For Monday Munchies yesterday we tasted blueberries and they were great! We liked that they were juicy and sweet. They were dark purple in colour, but we thought that "blueberries" was a good name for them.

Mother's Day is on May 8th. Even though that's still almost 4 weeks away, we've started to get organised for it, because we start school holidays next week. Today, we made special invitations for a Mother's Day afternoon tea that our class is having on May 6th. Mrs N taught us how to draw cupcakes and teacups and we put them on our invitations. They look amazing! We made invitations for our mums and our grandmothers.

We're making our mums something special for Mother's Day, but we can't tell you what it is yet! We don't want to spoil the surprise. To make it, we had to count out fifty little plastic shapes. We discussed the different ways we could do this and decided that making 5 groups of 10, or 10 groups of 5 would work very well. We wouldn't lose track of our counting and it would be easy for us to check how many we had already counted. Knowing about Maths is really useful sometimes!

5 groups of 10 is 50
