I took this photo on one of my trips overseas.
When you look at the photo……
What do you think the tiger is thinking?
What do you know, think or wonder when you look at the photo?
Where do you think I was when I took the photo?
I really like the discussion you are having about the photo.
I will tell you the story of the photo and tiger next term.
In the meantime keep wondering and commenting.

We just had our Easter break and had great experiences. We have all written a snapshot about one event. We are each going to share a favourite part on our blog. Please reply to one of our writers if you particularly like their writing, have a suggestion or would like to share your event.
I can feel my heart pumping and my face getting hotter and hotter as I struggle up the last part of the walk to the lookout. The steps are rocky, uneven and very steep. I keep repeating to myself hoping it will be true, “The view will be worth the effort.” Finally using the hand rail I pull myself to the top and step out onto the small iron platform jutting from the cliff.

We have just had our Athletics Carnival which was a great experience even though it was really hot. I was thinking about what parts of it will be a memory that you keep for a long time.
Think about your senses. Heard Saw Thought Felt
I remember a school athletics carnival that I went to in primary school. I remember really feeling like I belonged when I was singing the house chant. My house was called Leven (after the Leven River) and it was blue house.
Tell us about your memory of the carnival or other carnivals and why it is important to you. Ask a question as well.

You have done a great job of responding to my question about what you did in the holidays.
Our new topic is CONNECTIONS.
Everyone in our class has lots of connections to people and places all over Australia and in other parts of the world.
I would like you to put a comment on the blog telling our class what connections you have.
Please put the name of the Place, State and what your connection is.
I have a connection to Bundaberg because my mum was was born there. I was thinking about Bundeberg recently because my mum had a cousin who lost many of her possessions in the January floods.

Hi Grade Four

Even your parents will be able to read our class blog. It will be exciting and a challenge as we learn about blogging together. It will be a great way for us to connect with each other and other people around Australia and the world.
I had a relaxing holiday and a highlight for me was going to the beach. We went to the East Coast of Tasmania for five days where the house we stayed at had a view of the beautiful blue water. I took our two dogs Jock and Bessie. They had a great time swimming and playing in the surf. Aren’t they cute?
Please write back and tell me and the class a highlight from your holiday and where you were. Ask the class a question at the end of your comment.
