Well, I’ve just experienced the Anzac Day ceremony at my new school. I was very moved by everything that went on. I really enjoyed the Anzac Day sports, even though the weather was not the best. It made me think about why we commemorate Anzac Day and what you think about it. I think it is an important day to help us reflect and remember the past.
What do you think? Does anybody in your family attend the Anzac Day parade?

When we were setting up our blog, Mrs Hameed and I each chose a cyber-pet to represent us. I chose a penguin and called him Percy and Mrs Hameed chose a panda and called her Penelope.
If you could have chosen the pet, what would you have chosen and why? What name would you have given it? (We both chose a name beginning with “P’ as our animals began with that letter).

Hello Grade 4/5s I was sitting at home thinking about the holidays and all the extreme weather we’ve been having. It’s incredible that we live in a country where you can have floods in one part of the country and devastating bushfires in another part. I was amazed and saddened by the bushfires in Tasmania, many of my friends live in and around Forcett, Dunalley and Murdunna. I taught at Dunalley so when the school was burnt down I was very upset.
I am really impressed by how the Tasmanian people have rallied around to help.
I was wondering whether any of you have been affected by the bushfires? Do you have friends or family who live in the area the fires were? Maybe you know somebody in Queensland where the floods have been? Let us know how these events have affected you?

Welcome to the new year in grade 4/5. Miss O’Toole and Mrs Hameed are looking forward to an exciting and challenging year!
Blogging will be a new tool we will be using throughout the year. We can talk to people all over the world and they can leave us comments. Last year, Mrs Hameed’s class heard from the author Andy Griffiths after a student wrote a post about his favourite author. The students were all very excited!
During the holidays both teachers went to Melbourne and co-incidentally, went to the Australian Open tennis. Mrs Hameed’s daughter had to hold her mother back because she was so excited to stand next to one of her tennis heroes – Evonne Goolagong-Cawley.
Miss O’Toole went to the state theatre to see the London based production of ”War Horse” (brought to Melbourne) which is based on a book written by Michael Morpurgo. You may have seen the movie produced by Steven Spielberg.
Please leave a comment below telling us what the highlight was of your holidays.
