This week was a very busy one. On Monday school celebarted UN Day. It was a very special day with everybody looking so spectacular in their traditional costumes. Look at our photos of the day here. Then on Friday we had a Halloween party at school. It was good fun and we enjoyed the games, songs and the treats. More photos to see here.

It's NICE to have a holiday! I enjoyed the warm weather and had a few days out. My daughter and I went to Beijing for one day and did lots of shopping. There were really many people everywhere. It was quite difficult to get around, but we still enjoyed our trip.
I got back to my Chinese studies and studied more Chinese vocabulary and grammar. I hope to get much better at Chinese by the end of the school year.
Another thing I did during the holiday was lots of exercise. I am proud to say that now I can run much better and longer than before. My personal record is running for 20 minutes without a break.
I also read books and watched Simpsons cartoon series.
Now I am looking forward to hearing about your holiday, English A!
There is a well known technique for learning new spelling words. You should LOOK at the word carefully, READ it out loud, COVER, WRITE it and CHECK if you get it right! If you made a mistake, try to do the same one more time.
When I learn my new spelling words I do pretty much the same. Some words are tricky, so sometimes I have to follow this technique again the following day or a few days later.
What about you? How do you learn your spellings? Is there a little secret that you would like to share with us?
It's hard to believe that the holiday is over, but I hope that we all had exciting time and wonderful summer!
I would like to hear about your holiday, the places you went to, the places you saw, the thigs you did, etc.

In my holiday my daughter and I went to South Africa first. It is a beautiful country with many tall trees and lots of animals. We went to visit our friends in South Africa who took us to different places including game reserve. We saw many animals: giraffes, zebras, cheetahs, lions, hyenas, rhinos and many others. It was very exciting to see all those animals in the wild!
Then we travelled to Moscow and Saint-Petersburg in Russia. We saw many palaces, museums and parks. We also travelled on a boat along the city canals. I had a fantastic summer holiday and now would really like to hear about yours.
