You might be asking what type of tea? Or what is Marmite? Well, we will answer that. Marmite is a spread that looks like chocolate but IT IS NOT. It looks like chocolate so don't let that fool you it is really salty. More than you think.
The tea is the beast tea that I (Sophia) have ever had but some people don't like it (for instance Sara, the person who is writing this blog with me was not as excited about it). The tea is black tea.
How would you feel if your teacher was having a birthday? It feels really nice to see someone who helps you be happy. Each person gave Ms. Chown a gift. Some people gave Ms. Chown flowers, cards, food, hugs and more. After that Ms. Chown taught us how to make tea. It was really fun. Throughout the day, Ms. Chown felt really good (although she connected with Thaison and said it was strange hearing appreciations being said to her).
At the end of the day we had cake. It was so fun Grady's mom and Sara's mom helped serve cake, napkins and forks. Everyone had cake, even Ms. Chown.

Then we learned maths which is short for mathematics. English people don't say math, they say maths. Ms. Chown thinks that this makes more sense!
In maths we got to learn english money, which is called pounds and pence and learn how to add them up.
Then Audrey, our great friend got us some delicious tangerines from her backyard. After recess, we had a cup of tea with milk and we sampled bread with marmite and irish butter. Delanie thought the sample of marmite was divine,mouthwatering,and well-flavorful. Thaison thought the marmite was unappetizing, fishy, tasteless,over-salted, and flat.
We got to read our English story book called Varjak Paw. It was a relaxing, fun English day for everyone!

Then we watched “Horrible Histories.” It was bad history. It was gross. We learned how the Incas cleaned their hair. It was disgusting. I prefer shampoo. We also learned that the Inca's put their kids in a hole. Why would they want to do that? I guess they wanted to keep them safe in the hole, but it did not seem safe to me. It would not be good if it rained. The kids would get wet and dirty in the mud. Gross. Other than “Horrible Histories,” I thought English Day was fun. Happy Birthday, Ms. Chown!
called Horrible Histories! This is a show that English children watch in the afternoons when they come home from school.
At first when I watched it, I did not get it but when it got more into the show I got it. Man that show was so funny, I could not stop laughing. If you watched it, you would be laughing too. It is too funny and I hope we can we watch it again. I really enjoyed it!
