  2. To 4B,

    When I was in primary school (which was this primary school) my favourite subject was reading. I loved to read. I always had a book in my bag and more likely in my hand. I still love to read.

    From Rennae (Dalton’s Mum)

    • To Rennae,
      I love, love, LOVE reading! You can see me always with my head buried in my book, immersed in the printer’s letters and fantasy. I have just discovered the ‘Inkheart’ trilogy and it is so good. I am reading the second book, and with the third sitting on top of my night table. The only one I haven’t got is the first book and I hope I can find it soon. Enid Blyton is my favourite author. What is your favourite author?

      I also like writing, where I can type/form words and make it a fantasy of characters, plots, resolutions and ‘happily ever afters’. Before grade four I just wrote down my piece of writing, edited it, occasionally typed it up, but never ever revised. Revising is also my one weakness. Everything seems perfect so I can’t make up my mind to changed it, or leave it just the way it is. My favourite thing to write is a narrative. After reading aloud my ‘Found’ story, and have everyone crack up at the funny parts, made me just want to write more and more.

      Do you like writing?
      What is your favourite thing to write?(e.g narrative, information report etc.)

      • To Jema,

        Thank you for your questions. I love that you use such descriptive words in your comment. I can see the writer shining in you already.
        I too love Enid Blyton. We have quite the collection at home. I often read them aloud to my boys, which they both enjoy. My favourite would have to be, The naughtiest school girl is a monitor. We recently finished The folk of the faraway tree. I think the perfect place to read these books, is laying on the grass under a huge tree.
        I have not read the Inkheart books, but you have inspired me to look them up.
        The babysitters club was a very popular series when I was your age and read by lots of school friends.
        I have always enjoyed more classic stories the most. Little women and The secret garden are among my favourites.
        I think of myself as a bit of a closet writer. Personal narrative would have to be my favourite style and my Nan would have to be my favourite subject. She was my best friend and passed away when I was sixteen. Writing about her helps in keeping her memory alive. The way she always wore a Madonna pendant around her neck. The textures and soft lines of her face. Her scent and the way it can stop me in my tracks. The way she whispers in my ear when I need to hear her voice.
        Keep up your writing Jema, I can see you would make a fabulous author in the near future. I would gladly line up to buy your first book,
        All the best,

  3. Hello 4 B, I am Dalton’s Nanna. My favourite school subject was English. I enjoyed spelling and reading. I still enjoy reading, I love receiving books for my birthday or at Christmas time. It is good being able to borrow books from the Library to read. A friend and myself often swap our books then we talk about the books together.

  4. Dear val,
    I know you like playing golf which course do you like best?
    Do you like putting on the green or teeing off better. I like chipping.
    When I was in Melbourne I played at St. Valleys golf club. I like to play at the Barwon Heads golf club,I play with my grand parents and my mum. May be we could go and play a game of golf together.

  6. Hello 4b, I am Dalton’s Pa. My favourite subject at school was Geography because I had thoughts of travelling in the future.

  7. Hi Ginger & 4B,

    My love of reading whilst at school continues today.

    My daughter recently bought me a Kindle for my birthday, which I love to load up with new books and take on holidays.

    However I still like to browse the shelves of my local library.

  8. Hi 4B,

    In primary school my favourite subjects were reading and spelling. I like to read and I relish being read to by a talented reader. I had a primary school teacher called Miss Pollock who spent an entire year reading the work of Roald Dahl to us. Funny, that for all his classic stories of imaginitive genius; ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, ‘James and the Giant Peach’, T’he BFG’, so many stories and poems it is Dahl’s ‘Danny Champion of the World’ that made an everlasting impression on me. The story of a boy and his Dad, living in a gypsy caravan and refining the art of pheasant poaching and living well, remains to this day a favourite book of mine. Miss Pollock was determined to immerse us in Dahl and I am forever grateful to her for that. And when she finished a chapter, she picked up her guitar and led us in a song. We sang everyday before lunchtime and I am sure I wasn’t the only one who sang all through lunchtime as well. I guess I should add singing to the list of favourite subjects…

  9.

  11. Hello 4B,
    A special hello to Rex. It was so nice to see what the class and especially Rex is up to. We live 4 hours away so don’t see him often enough so this is great for us.
    Well done and keep up the good work 4B.
