It’s back to school time and this term we are learning about the Olympics. We are learning lots of different things. We wrote down questions we would like to find out the answer and we are putting them in groups. We are also practicing some sports in the Olympics like long jump and triple jump. My highest score for long jump is 4.7m and my highest for triple jump is 5.7m. I think these are really high scores for me because I have not had much practice and I am only in grade 5. This term we have a student teacher who is really lovely and pretty. She is really helpful and smart.

Yesterday (Wednesday 13th) I went to the Convention Center (with my Dad on the train) to go to the ‘Meet the Writers Festival 2O12’. Me and some of my friends and classmates went. There was 14 people in total (Including our teacher and my Dad). We split up in to 2 groups of 6 and visited two different authors (and one illustrator).
First we met an illustrator called Greg Holfeld. Here is a link to the book he has illustrated (Captain Congo) and here is a bit about him. He drew us a picture of CC and he taught us how illustrations and writing work together and how to write a book (if you know what I mean)
We also met an author (I have forgotton his name atm ‘oops’!) but he taught me alot about how to write books. For example he taught us that you can base stories on real life things but add and change them so no one would know!
There was about 2000 students there and it was a lot of fun!
At our school we have a day called Sports Day. Their are four teams who play lots of games to earn the most points. The Teams names are Barker (yellow) Flinders (Green) Sturt (Red) and Light (Blue). I am in the yellow team. So is my friend Tam. The Yellow team or the Blue team has normally won the years I’ve been at school. We had Sports day in term 1 and Barker won 🙂 YELLOW ATTACK!!
In Sports Day we had many different activities including ‘Cross Country’ (where we run around the boundary’s of our school, past the creek), Tug of War, Volley ball, Long jump and a special rugby clinic (which you can read about on my class blog). I really enjoyed all of the activities but the best thing about sports day would have to be the sprints! I love running!! I came 1st out of the people I was running against (by quite a long way)
As you might or may not know Easter is coming up soon so I thought I’d share a recipe that I found.
Hot Cross Cookies:
125gt butter softened
1 cup (175g) brown suger
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
2 teaspoons of finely grated lemon rind

Preheat oven to 160C. Place the butter and sugar in an electric mixer and beat for 8-10 minutes or until pale and creamy. Gradually add the eggs and vanilla, beating well after each addition. Add lemon rind, flour , Cinnamon, mixed spice, milk and sultana’s and beat until small dough forms. Roll Tablespoonfuls of the dough in to balls and place on lightly greased baking trays lined with non stick baking paper. Bake for 14-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Allow to cool on trays.To make the icing , Place the icing sugar and water in a bowl and mix until paste forms, Place the mixture in a piping bag fitted with a 3mm plain nozzle and draw a cross on each cookie.
