I hear Alex likes Dachshunds! So do I!

Hi Alex! We love miniature dachshunds in our family and my daughter would love to own one! I have just bought this mug for her – what do you think of it?

Then there’s a dog I follow on Instagram (he makes me smile every day) called Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund. I think these clips are fun …. what do you think?


There are lots more … but I need to control myself! I haven’t seen a cricket one, but as he lives in Canada – perhaps we won’t! Maybe we should do a cricket movie with you as the star! Are you up for the challenge Alex?

Hi, I am 7 and I was born in South Korea. I’m turning 8 this year. I love reading and playing. I live in Tasmania-Hobart. I go to a good school in Hobart and also I’m in grade 2.  I like nature and sports. My favourite sport is cricket and soccer. I also like AFL and basketball. My favourite subjects are science, art, history and maths.  I have 2 brothers and one sister. I’m the oldest out of my brothers and sister. My favourite animal is a tiger cub. I also like ligers and wallabies and if you don’t know what a liger is, its a mix between a lion and a tiger. But my most favourite animals are dinosaurs! I also like kangaroos and lions. I have a big garden, and in my garden I have a rope swing.

All About Me-(Bruno)

Hi my name is Bruno, I am eight years old and I am in grade two. I go to a school in Hobart and I was born in England and I moved to Hobart when I was two. My favourite animal is a tiger cub. I love sports and my favourite subject in school is science and writing. I like the other subjects too like history and other stuff like that. I love discovering and learning new things. I don’t really have a favourite food, but I wonder if you do? My brother and my sister are called Kitty and Vinnie. I have one last question. Do you have a blog? If you do, can you let me know your blog URL because then I might be able to comment. I hope you liked this post. I’ll see you on the next one!

Scratch. Welcome to the World of Coding!

As holidays are fast approaching, I thought some of you may like to start experimenting with Scratch

Scratch is a programming language, created by MIT, that makes it easy to create interactive art, stories, simulations and games.

This digibook will introduce you to Scratch and get you making your very own interactive holiday card.

There are several short videos listed as chapters on the bottom left of the screen. Work through each chapter with Scratch opened in a new tab (https://scratch.mit.edu/), so that you can go between the two sites. The only condition I have at this stage, is for you to either use the images called “sprites” within Scratch, or make your own. I do not want you uploading your own images until you know more about copyright.

Have fun!
