My favourite flower is called a Blue Tiger Lily. It is a really pretty flower and I wish I had them in my garden. The Blue Tiger Lily is a type of oriental lily and originally came from China. It was then introduced to the United Kingdom in the 1800’s and now you can see them all over the world. There are many other colours of Tiger Lily including orange, pink, cream and red. They look really lovely in flower arrangements or in a vase.

It is so close to Christmas! I can not wait until Christmas Eve when we wrap up other people’s presents for the next day. This year we are having Christmas lunch at our house. I am hoping to get a grown-up jewellery box and a bookshelf for my room. Some Blingles would be nice too! I would like to say thank you to Santa, for all his hard work every year. Gee, those elves must be tired!
Do you celebrate Christmas?
Did you send a letter to Santa this year?
At school we are learning about toys and simple machines. This week we are going to build our own simple machine.We get to name our machines and the name for mine is “Secret Heart”. We had to write very detailed instructions and draw a plan that had to be labelled. Also this week, we are going to Scienceworks to learn a bit more about this topic. Here are some examples of simple machines…..
Can you identify simple machines are at your house?
Can you write down some examples of simple machines in your kitchen and garage?
Today we went to Adventure Park for my Dad’s work Christmas party. My sister and I had loads of fun.
Here’s a list of the things we did….
It wasn’t a hot day today so my sister and I wore our wetsuits to keep warm. Here’s a picture of me in the Lazy River.

Dancing is good for your health and keeps you fit. Classical ballet requires concentration because you are learning techniques. It makes you flexible, just like a rubber band! I love ballet and my dream is to become a ballerina or ballet teacher.
Do you like to dance?

My name is Dana and I transferred to Leopold Primary School at the end of last year. I’m in grade 3 this year and can’t wait to start grade 4. I live with my Mum, Dad and my younger sister Lauren who will be in Grade 3 next year. We also have a big ginger cat and his name is Garfield!
One of my interests is classical ballet. I started when I was 5 and I now attend two classes each week. We have a big concert in October each year. My sister is also in the concert because she does Jazz/Tap classes at the same ballet school. I also like to swim and am currently at level 5.
Here is a picture of me….
