Welcome to our blog!
We are excited about communicating with a class of Year 2 students in Bedfordshire, in England. They have sent us questions about Australia and we are emailing them individually. They are very cute.
We are also establishing email links with Year 10 students at our local high school. They are going to be our mentors and give us advice on how to improve our work.
The homework our teacher gives us is interesting and fun to do. I love it! C.Z
We are doing research in the library about an aspect of gold in Australia. Our librarian created a "Wallwisher Wall" on the web and we are posting sticky notes on it about our ideas for topics. www.wallwisher.com is fun to use.
Our teacher/librarian has created an interesting blog with good links. Check it out at http://mrstandict.weebly.com
Wallwisher is a great site and is easy to use! K.D
We made a bunch of origami flowers to give to our principal. C.Y. and B.K. taught us to make them. We will be doing more origami on Wednesday afternoons. K.D is going to teach us a heart that she learnt at Japanese school and C.O. is going to teach us another thing.
This week we are writing and performing a play for homework. I am having a lot of fun on it. We had to include a denim vest in some way and it is really interesting.
Hi! It's my first time blogging and I'm really excited - yippee!! Today we started making origami bookmarks but we didn't get to finish.
We have been writing letters and postcards to our penpals in England and we are just about ready to post them. Some of our class went to a School Leaders conference in the city yesterday with the Deputy Principal and today, some of our excellent swimmers are competing in a Zone swimming carnival. We wish them good luck.
We are holding a Mobile Phone Muster in our school. We collect old mobiles to hand in for recycling. The plastic, metals and batteries are recycled, especially the precious metals like gold and silver.
This is my first time blogging. I hope you all look at my story! (It is in the "WRITING WE ARE PROUD OF!" section of this blog.) It is called Enemies to Friends.
I hope you like my Chinese poem!C.Z
This is the first time I am blogging!!! Today I checked my email and found one sent from my Maths mentor, Maddie.
Also, today most of the Year 6 people in our class did the Selective Test!!! L.B
We have a competition at our school. It is the Public Speaking competition. It is optional whether you want to join it or not. I wanted to. Today was our first meeting. I was very nervous but I found out it wasn't so bad after all. I hope I do very well. A.G.
Well, we FINALLY posted all our snail mail stuff to our penfriends in Bedfordshire! It took us all week because people were away at leadership days, or away at swimming carnivals, or away at Selective High School tests or away at...... ;-)
Eventually the parcel made it to the Post Office though. We hope they will enjoy getting our letters as much as we enjoyed getting theirs! We know they read our blog sometimes - so here is a blog HELLO as well. It is still hot here (34 deg C), even though it is officially autumn.
Today we listened to a song called "Gotta Keep Reading". The tune is the same as "I Gotta Feeling". It was sort of funny when we sung it. Today we got our homework. It was looking difficult because they were hard brainstrains. Brainstrains are problems that involved lots of work.R.K
Today, our teacher showed us a music clip on a song called 'Gotta Keep Reading'.
The song is very catchy and upbeat! L.B
"Gotta keep reading" is like a sequal to "I got a feeling." K.D
We are learning a song called gotta keep reading. I think this song rocks!E.D
I have written two new stories called The Strangers and The Great War, on the WRITING WE ARE PROUD OF page. I hope you enjoy the stories!E.D
Today we played a kind of badminton for sport. Some people had good rallies but some of us still need to get better at it! :-)
Today we had our Easter Raffle it was sort of boring and fun. I won a prize of chocolates. That was fun. I'm going to write a story on the Writing We Are Proud Of page hope you see it.R.K
Today the head teacher of the school in Bedfordshire where our penpals come from visited us. She was very nice and brought Easter cards from our penpals. They were like eggs and when we opened them, there was a picture of our penpal inside!
She brought a DVD of Class 2's "Australian" assembly. The kids sang Waltzing Matilda, Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport etc, told facts about Australian animals and did an Aboriginal style dance. They even mentioned us!!! They were excellent! We made an afternoon tea for Mrs H. The picture is below. It had lots of Australian foods and biscuits. Our principal went to get Mrs H and brought her to our school.
We are using www.smartkiddies.com.au to practise our Maths work. Our teacher has put the whole class in and we each have our own password. Our teacher can set homework on the website and she can see how we are doing. It is fun and you can score points and get virtual money and go the the rewards room and buy virtual stuff.

On the first day of school holidays my friends S.C,A.B,C.Z and C.O came over to my house straight after school. Also on that day was one of our teachers last day.A.G
Hey this is E.D again I have written a new story, well not quite a story but an arguement about that people shouldn't kill animals for their fur. Hope you enjoy it.E.D
We did the second Maths Challenge today and we also did some verses to go on cards for people in a nursing home for Mother's Day. Mrs B. makes them presents and will put the cards with the presents.
Later that day........ :-) We got the Cross Country Carnival finished just before lunch. It looked like it was going to rain, but it held off. The sky is grey, so it might rain this afternoon.
On the weekend, our teacher went to Customs House to see the Stephen Wiltshire Exhibition. Sadly, Stephen had finished his drawing of Sydney (below), so he wasn't there. Mrs M was too late! CL from our class went at the beginning of the exhibition, before Stephen came. Well, at least we saw him a bit on the webcam.... he was only drawing "live" in school time, so we couldn't get there.
Also, I would like to recommend a book to you called The Shoe-Horn Sonata. I haven't read all of it yet, but so far, the book is really good. If you would like to see what the book is about, then go to the 'Great Writing' page and read the review I wrote about it.C.Z
My friend C.Z is going to do 3 dances in front of my class on Wednesday. I`ve heard that it is some sort of Chinese dance. I can`t wait to see them! a
Tomorrow, grades 5 and 6 are going to Bathurst on a coach. We have to get to school by 6:30a.m. and thats when I usually wake up in the morning. I can't wait to go!!! C.S
31.5.10- Murder Under The Microscope
Hey blog viewers, you know what B.K said at his blog on the 28th of may, well he solved that problem. Any way, I have writen some stuff on the Origami Designs page. Why not check it out?
Yesterday, my family and I went to the city with many other people to Walk With Christ. I got there on a coach with many other people from my church. At 2:30p.m. we started at Lang park and walked to St Mary's Cathedral, and just when we were about to start it started to rain. We were lucky my mum had brought raincoats. All the people without a umbrella or a raincoat got soaked. We got there and we went in and met the cardinal and talked a bit and then we went back to where the coaches were waiting, we got on and rode back to church where our car was. We got into my car and drived safely back home. C.S.
Today at school, we got brand new writing books and new covers. I hope everyone is very happy with getting a new cover and a book, beacuse i am!!
Have a look at our side-splitting jokes page :)
Hey everyone remember me E.D I havn't written for a long time well lets make it 2 months Cynthia played for us today in the hall all of year 4 came to watch her I think. But I bet you I could do better, just kidding!!
Long time no writing! Today we had our athletics carnival. It was pretty fun. Me, B.K and K.D played murder in the bath! It was really fun. We were getting fed on junkfood although I didn't have that much On Wednesday It was the ICAS Science comp. I reckon that it was pretty hard in my opinion. We have our Fifa World Cup H/Q always up to date and we have split into teams of 4. So since there are 32 tems we are going to have one team for each child. It is really fun. we are betting each other in class who is going to win although some kids like B.C are really not happy They are always being wimps (in a funny way of course!!). S.V
A secret is a secret, I can't tell you guys. Sorry!
I'm really sorry that not a lot of people in my class are writing here. Is it getting boring?
Also, please enter some comments. We would like to know what you think of our blog. C.Z
Today is the end of the financial year. Stores will be doing stocktakes and workers will be getting their group certificates so that they can fill in their income tax returns.

20.7.10 AFL EXCITEMENT !!! We Won!!
Hi everybody. My class and other year five and six people went to canberra and we had a lot of fun. We went to many places . We went to Questacon and that was what i liked the best. Our teacher Mrs. M really needs some some sleep. Come back recently to our blog and check out the new things that are written.
Today, CP did an awesome painting of the teacher. She is a fabulous artist. C.O. made some beautiful origami shapes yesterday. He took one of them to the principal.
Thank you very much for rerading our blog and I hope it is very interesting how are class mates achieve awards. Our class has a lot of people who play instruments too; CY and KD play the violin, ML, ED, CZ and AG plays the piano, CO plays the saxophone, SS and AK plays the clarinet and finally CP, CS, LB and I play the flute... Yoops, I forgot SV! He plays the guitar and lately he's been insulting girls alot. Look how many people there are! 13 in a class of 31, that's nearly half! I am really proud of my class mates as well as myself being in this class. Also, have a look at some other pages too.
8.9.10 - You'll regret it S.V!
Evil laugh: Mwah hah hah ha... (I suck at evil laughs. But, hey, I'm better than a BOY)
YOU KNOW WHO I AM!
If you seriously can't figure it out I'm the bestest (awesome word) reader in the class.
If you STILL can't remember I'm A.S
If you're still confuzzled (I love that word) you've got memory loss.
Me Again - 8.9.10
this is the second time I am even writing this because I pressed something wrong and it made the whole paragaph I typed a few minutes ago, disappear. I really don't know what I pressed! At least I am not lazy to just quit. S.V! By the way, just back it up. Let's just all forget about the idiotic nonesense S.V brought up and change the point of view. I will just conclude the nonesense argument between the the boys and girls.
As you have read all this argument, I believe that this exposition is just pathetic and overly offensive. Therefore, this topic should not be held out again after this paragraph. If anybody brings this topic out again, everybody, just believe that the person has absolutely no maturity and sympathy....
Okay, well BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is holidays at the moment. Yay!( Although I do miss my friends a bit).
In H.S.I.E we are doing an project on Asian countries. We have all been given a country and 8 tasks to do. Some of the tasks are hard! My country is Malaysia.
A message to our teacher: I hope your husband is recovering fast and you are well. C.O

My poem was selected to be published but the judges still haven't decuded the first prize winner... I don't expect to win because I got an offer to be ppublished!!!!!!!!
