Spring: pitchforks, peas and poo

By |2019-03-21T10:31:21+10:00September 18th, 2018|Healthy Bodies|

"Spring has sprung!" That's what Mum always says when we wander around our garden at this time of year.  And it's easy to see why. It really looks like, out of nowhere, stuff has literally spring out of the garden beds! We have fruit trees that were just twigs last week and are now fully [...]

Onions, twirly pasta and feeling useful.

It's so cool that we get to cook at school. I've never wanted to go into the kitchen and help Mum make dinner before, because, to be honest, I didn't think I could do it properly. And I really LOVE my food and I didn't want to mess it up. Because if I messed it [...]

Can Do Easter

By |2019-03-21T10:31:22+10:00April 8th, 2018|Healthy Bodies|

Easter is one of my favourite times of year. It means school holidays, fun times with friends, footy season starting, hot cross buns and plenty of chocolate. I know it’s also about lots more than that, but whilst I’m curious about Jesus my family isn’t religious so I was never taken to church or made [...]

Doing the dentist dance

By |2018-03-03T21:54:17+10:00February 28th, 2018|Healthy Bodies|

Nobody much seems to like dentists. I wonder why anyone wants to become one? I think they go to uni forever too, just to learn how to create torture in people's mouths.... I know I probably shouldn’t have that attitude towards dentists – that they’re torturers – but they really seem to be. They have [...]

Yoga and skateboards

I was so lucky to go to the beach with my friends Ollie and Lucy and their Mum and Dad to do some yoga with a ladycalled Jan.  She's really nice and loves doing yoga on the beach, especially on New Year's eve. I hadn't ever done yoga before, and to be honest, I was [...]

Just hanging around with Gracie

By |2019-03-21T10:31:22+10:00December 23rd, 2017|Healthy Bodies|

How good does it feel when you try something new and you nail it? I’d never done gymnastics before but I got to have a try of it the other day when I visited the Little Gym Shop and played with Gracie. The Little Gym Shop is business owned by a mum and dad who [...]

The School Concert and other Horrors

By |2018-02-12T11:35:52+10:00December 4th, 2017|Healthy Bodies|

I love this time of year. School is almost finished, Christmas is really soon and the weather is getting warm. Summer holidays are almost here and everyone relaxes a bit more. There’s also some stuff I’m not such a fan of at this time of year though…mostly the school concert. You see, every year we [...]
