Congratulations! and Merry Christmas

Well done to everyone that was nominated in the Edublogs awards this year! I was thrilled to see that my blog was nominated! It is so good to see so many classes and children around the world that are so excited about blogging. It has been a really great way to share my adventures with you. A big congratulations to the winners in each category.  You can see all the results here I suggest you take a look at the winning blogs and see what other classes are doing with blogging.

While my Sydney class have finished school for the year and are enjoying their long summer holidays I know lots of my classes in other places will begin a short Christmas holiday soon. Thanks to all my new friends I have made in 2012. Although my girls in Year 2 are going on to Year 3 in 2013 with a different teacher they would still love to stay in touch with you.

Merry Christmas and lots of love

from Rosie

News from Guatemala!

Hi girls, did you know that I survived an EARTHQUAKE in Guatemala?
I have learned so much from my class here that I can’t wait to tell you when I get home.
Meanwhile please ask Mrs Thomas to show you the great Wiki that my class have made to read all about what I have been up to.

You should send a Flat Rosie overseas!

In class my friends have been learning to write persuasively. Listen to Jaime’s reasons why she thinks you should send a flat doll like me overseas.

Aussie Flat Rosie celebrates Independence Day in Lebanon

I am learning a lot here in Beirut. Did you know that after the First World War Lebanon was controlled by France? In 1943 Lebanon became independent from France and this is celebrated on November 22.

In this video you can see me enjoying the Independence Day celebrations with my class in Beirut.

And another one where you see me having lots of fun with my friends!

 

Moving making across the world!

My friend Mr Huxley has helped us make this video which shows my friends in Sydney and my friends in England. I am so grateful for the time he has spent on it. I hope my friends in Sydney watch it carefully. Look for things that are the same in the English and Australian schools. What things are different? Please leave a comment I would love to hear from you all.

Love from Rosie
PS. Mr Huxley says the 2nd part of the video is coming soon! I am looking forward to that.
