  1. Hi 5D,
    We are your quadblogging class from Tasmania, Australia. We were interested to read your ‘What we are learning page’ to see you learn lots of the same things as we do at school. We are in our third and last term of 2011. In our first term we also had a focus on persuasive writing. We continue to learn our x tables. Some people have learnt them all and others are still learning and making connections with facts we know. We learn Japanese instead of French and are learning ICT at the moment through our blog and blogging. We have really enjoyed our time blogging this year and some of our students have started wondeful blogs themselves. We are wondering why your class is callled Mel Clarke.

    • its named mel clarke class because all of are classes in the school are the name of a famouse english olympion to celebrate the 2012 olympics

    • Eloise and Ellie said:

      we are called Mel clarke because every class in are school is named after a athlete and thats why we are called Mel clarke

      Eloise and Ellie

    • Because Eloise and Ellie said all the classes in our school have names of athletes and ours is Mel Clarke to celebrate the olympics.

  4. There I was standing there eye to eye with that thing that I never think I would see in my life. A teeth ripping meat eating tiger. I freezed I took two steps back. I found that it was a stormy and wet day. there was even lightning and it was raining which made the tiger more determent to pounced and kill. I felt like I was going to die I felt like shouting help but there was no one there except snakes creepy crawls and my soul.
