Quad-blogging was an idea originally developed by 
Deputy Mitchell in England, 
as a way for four classes to connect via their class blogs.

Over the years, the children who have been in B4 have

Friendship Salad

Today was our first day back at school after the summer break and everyone was excited to be back with old and new classmates.
After talking about friendships and working together, everyone helped to make a friendship salad.

In went some grapes -these are the students in the class - the good helpers and friends inside and outside of the room.

In went some apple to show the hard workers that always try their best in everything they do;

some pineapple to show the children that share and take turns;


marshmallows to show the kind sweet words being said in our classroom;

and yoghurt to show the happiness we feel when we are in school together.

No one wanted to add the rotten banana! 
Rotten bananas might cause trouble in our room such as calling people names, or refusing to do the work, or not sharing!


Finally everyone enjoyed eating the yummy friendship salad.


Thank you to Brooke and Hannah for taking the photos.


What do you do to be a good friend to someone?
