Sophia & Wilbur

Last week Wilbur came to stay at my house.  Wilbur got lots of cuddles from me in the car on the way home from school.  When I arrived home I had  some afternoon tea straight away and Wilbur had a little nibble! 
Later it was time for Ballet and Wilbur went along and watched the class in a pink outfit.  Wilbur decided he does not want to go to any more Ballet classes for the 2C girls.
Wilbur sat at the table for dinner with my family and then he came and hopped onto my lap for a story in bed.    Wilbur had an excellent time at my house and I hope he will visit me again later in the year.

Wilbur's Big Night Out!

Wilbur came with me to after school care.  Then we had pizza for tea but
Wilbur didn't want ham and pineapple.  So Mummy took Wilbur to the 2C Mums
dinner.  Wilbur had a good time.

Charlotte and Wilbur

This afternoon, Wilbur came to visit.
After school, when I went to tennis lessons Wilbur wanted to join in.
Wilbur sneaked past Mum to the tennis court.
He found me!
Wilbur came onto the court and helped me to pick up the balls.
Wilbur was so helpful I let him hit some tennis balls with my racket.
When we got home we all had dinner together.
Wilbur had a bath while my sister and I had showers.
Mummy read us a story and then we went to bed.
Having Wilbur to visit is great fun.

The Junior Sports Carnival

Today it was our Junior Sports Athletics Carnival. We all went to the oval to run in races and to participate in the field events.
First we did some cheers in our teams. The teams were Lawson, Kendall, Paterson and Wright.
After the cheers we had our running races. We ran 100 metres. There were ribbons for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. We felt a bit nervous at the start of the race but we felt proud of our efforts.
After a quick break for morning tea, we did our field events. The field events were sack race, javelin, discuss, hammer throw, tunnel ball, shot put and the egg and spoon race (but they weren't real eggs - just ping pong balls).
We felt awesome but exhausted after our big day.
Go Wright!
Lawson is Awesome!

Hooray for Paterson!
Three cheers for Kendall!

What a day! What a week!

Besides being a once in a lifetime chance to see the Venus transit, today was also Queensland Day and yesterday was World Environment Day.
It has been a very busy week!
We wrote ways that we can help our planet and we tidied up our school grounds.
We made Queensland Day sunnies with pineapples.
We looked pretty funny in our sunnies!

Once in a lifetime!

Today something very exciting happened that will only happen once in about 100 years and 2C got to witness it! Venus went in front of the Sun. It only happened from 8.45am this morning until 2.25pm this afternoon so we wondered if our quadblogging buddies in the UK might have missed it because they were asleep.
We couldn't look at it by ourselve because if you look straight at the sun it will hurt your eyes and it could even make you blind.
If you want to find out more about the Venus Transit, you can read about it on the web on this link.
We were lucky because Mrs Hunt had some special glasses that we could all take turns at using so we could see this exciting thing in the sky.
We looked a bit funny with the glasses on but our faces looked very excited.

Fun at the Show

A few weeks ago, our class went on an excursion to the Brookfield Show as part of our learning in History and Mathematics.
We learnt about how the show has changed over the years, and about what has stayed the same.
We took along our own money to spend but we had to stick to our budget. This was great for our maths thinking.
We visited the Museum, went to Side Show Alley, watched the horse events in the arena, but most of all we had fun!
