Hello World!

Last updated 09 August 2011, 05:33 PM

Hello to anyone visiting our blog from other places in Australia or overseas!

We hope you enjoy reading about some of the fun things we do in our class. 

Please leave us a comment, we'd love to know who you are and where you're from. 

 

But who are we? 

Junior R is a Year 4 class. That means most of us are 9 or 10 years old. Except for the poor teacher who is a little bit older.

Our school is in the south-west of Sydney. There are around 600 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. 

Here are some pictures of our school.

Hello. I would like to say hi from England. I come from the North of England, from a place known as "Leeds" We have black dogs, cats with three legs and pot holes the size of cars, that children fall down, never to be seen again. I wanted to tell you all that I have enjoyed viewing your epic win web site. You guys are very funny, thank you for entertaining me :D Ms Rooney is a good teacher, so make sure you buy her some chocolates at the end of the year and if you really like her, buy her BFF some too :D

Hi, I'm Mr W from Toowong State School in Brisbane. My Year 3/4 class will love your Blograt when I show them tomorrow and you may start to hear from some of them soon. They fell in love with a wombat on a site we used last term about bio-diversity, he did a rap about being nice to the Earth. My sister Mrs Doolan works in your office and has told me all the great things you do at Punchbowl.

Hello from California! We only have 2 weeks to go before we go on summer vacation. We have been studying about Monarch butterflies and have been tending 80 caterpillars that have been very hungry! Most of them have pupated into crysalis and we are waiting for the butterflies to emerge. Look it up on Google and you will see how beautiful they are. We have an Australian pet in our class - our bearded dragon which we love. Ta, ta!

Hi everyone, You have a lot of visitors from around the world! The dogs (Zac & Pepe) are 8 years old, nearly as old as you but in dog years they are older than Ms R and almost as old as me. Joanna, your dog sounds lovely and I am sure she is a good friend for you. Vicks, I am not sure when I can visit your school as I work during the week. I saw the pictures of your school and it looks lovely with the trees.

Oak Ridge, Tennessee is very close to the Great Smoky Mountains and the Appalachian Trail, on the East Coast of the United States. I live with my husband and a cat. The cat is very fat. She is white and she has a gray spot on her head, and her nose is very black. It looks like someone colored it with a magic marker. Two of my best friends are Jaden, who is seven, and Kelsey, who is five. They are brothers and they fight a lot. They just learned how to ride bicycles and they really love it. Kelsey is very funny. He is only five. I know you are all much more grown up than that, but I'm sure Kelsey would make you laugh. He can turn anything into a funny joke. I've never been to Australia. I'd like to visit New South Wales one day. Actually, I'd like to go to England to visit the old South Wales, too. Good luck with all your studies!

The river Severn is famous for its tidal bore twice a year - people come from all over to surf up the river on a long rolling wave - look it up! I have two kids, a bit older than you guys.

Hi Waz, Zac and Pepe were born sometime in early February, I don't know the date. Snoopy was a light ginger colour, he died when he was 20 years old which is very old for a cat. He was called Snoopy because when he was a kitten he used to snoop into everything. I hope you all have a great long weekend.

Hi Junior R, I like your blog and reading about all the fun tand exciting things you are learning in your Class room. I did like reading about the space and especially about learning to tell the time. I work for the railway and keeping the trains on time is very important. So to be able to tell the time is very important. Can anyone in Junior R tell me what time you have lunch?
