Hands Across The World

We have just finished and posted today, ahead of the 1st May deadline our handprints. They are off to California to Michelle Mock of Imagiverse, they will then be posted on to another school somewhere in the world - it's quite exciting.

The handprint idea is a fabulous one, and we can't wait to see where in the world our prints go, and also where we get handprints from. We had some particularly interesting design ideas some of which you can see above.

Tiny Ted in the USA ( Howdy Partner!!!)

Tiny Ted is continuing his 'Tour of the World' he has moved on now from New Zealand to the USA, he is in the state of Virginia and as you can see and read is having an absolutely brilliant time on his 'Amazing Adventure'. Thanks to all of the teachers and schools he is visiting on his journey, he is going to have a great story to tell us when he returns to Wales.

Thanks very much also to Katie A and Chris Micheals for posting their photos and telling us all about Tiny Ted's adventures in Virginia, USA.

"Hello New Zealand and Wales,

I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to tell you about my adventures with Tiny Ted! Tiny Ted and I had two amazing adventures while he was here in Williamsburg, Virginia. First Tiny Ted helped me give a tour of The College of William and Mary and then we went line dancing!

Tiny Ted helped give a fabulous tour of the College! I even think he helped convince some students to attend! He walked around the entire campus with me two times! Tiny Ted also shared his adventures with the guests of the College and told them about his friends in New Zealand and Wales. They were all very excited to hear about you all and were very honored to meet Tiny Ted. They couldn’t believe he had made it all the way to the States!

Tiny Ted was the best tour guide that day. He stood up in front of over 500 people and introduced himself as a tour guide for the College of William and Mary! He didn’t seem scared to talk in front of all those people and they all clapped for him when he was done. Here is a picture of Tiny Ted with two other tour guides. The stuffed doll was part of another assignment for the student on the left.

After a long day of giving tours Tiny Ted and I rested for a couple of hours, ate dinner, and went line dancing! Since Tiny Ted was in the southern part of the United States I felt it was only necessary that he attend a real country western line dancing club. He was a little timid at first, but after a couple of dances Tiny Ted was doing the two-step like a pro!

A cowboy spotted Tiny Ted and they began talking about his adventures around the world. Tiny Ted told the cowboy about his friends in Wales and his friends in New Zealand. Then the cowboy talked to Tiny Ted about line dancing and wearing cowboy boots and hats. The cowboy explained to Tiny Ted that line dancing was a tradition in the southern part of the United States, specifically in Texas. Here’s a picture of Tiny Ted and his cowboy friend.

Unfortunately those are all the adventures I was able to take with Tiny Ted. Thank you so much for letting me spend time with him! I can’t wait to hear about his future journeys around the world!

My frend has gone to another school today, i hope that she will keep in tuch with us.

Farewell to Georgia!!!

Class 3H would like to wish Georgia good luck in her new school. Georgia has been with Cefn Fforest Primary since the nursery and has built up a wide number of friends in the school. However Georgia actually lives very close to her new school ( she can walk to school ) - whereas she has to travel by car to get to to Cefn Fforest, so it makes sense for her to move to the closer school.

Georgia plans to keep in touch with all of her friends in Cefn Fforest as well as Georgia at Appleby School, via her blogmeister page which she will still be able to use.

All of the class wish her good wishes - we will miss you Georgia :)

Cuddly Kiwi has had an interesting day today when he went home for lunch with Charlotte - he had waffles for his lunch ...

This is our first Blog from Class 3H

We are finally able to use Blogger in our classroom as the site has been unblocked by our Local Authority ( Thank You Caerphilly IT Helpdesk Team ). We are going to use this space to show the journey and adventures of our Travel Pets ( Tiny Ted and Cuddly Kiwi ) as well as showcasing the work that we are doing in our small corner of Wales.

Our Movement Display

We studied our own movement in our Gymnastics lessons with Mr Gannon and then drew some preliminary sketches before our final drawings of ourselves ( many thanks to Mrs Hook for the display ).

We are in the middle of some very important work with our partners in Europe and New Zealand, we will be telling you more about these projects and keeping up to date with what is happening in the near future. It is great to have a voice from class at long last. You can keep up with our day to day blogging on our ClassBlogmeister pages which we hope you will do.

We will return to blog very soon...
