Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog!


As you may have read in some of my other posts, I have been snowed under with assignments. At one point, I had eleven due in the same week! I thought this was rather silly, so I took a photo of all my homework and assignments to share for the latest Kids Click theme 'Silly'.


A Silly Amount of Schoolwork

Thank you for having me, Simoney!


I had Science, English, Chinese, German, Christian Education (CE), Music, Health and Physical Education (HPE) and Art homework and assessment, and cello and piano practice. That's a LOT, don't you think!? At least I had a 350g block of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate to get me through my assessment!


Well, this hectic assessment period is basically over for a while (thankfully!) and I am in a very good mood. In fact, I am in a somewhat silly mood! And what better way to celebrate a silly mood than a silly song!


Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is the world-famous song from the Disney musical film Mary Poppins




The song was written by the Sherman Brothers and sung by Julie Andrews and Dick Van DykeAccording to Richard Sherman, co-writer of the song with his brother, Robert, the word 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' was created by them in two weeks, mostly out of double-talk. The roots of the word have been defined as: super- 'above', cali- 'beauty', fragilistic- 'delicate', expiali- 'to atone', and docious- 'educable', roughly equaling 'atoning for educability through delicate beauty'. It has been defined more simply in the movie, with 'something to say when you have nothing to say'. 


I hope you enjoy this super-silly classic!

Thank you for having me, Mum!


Well, I am off to relax after my stressful assessment period. I hope you have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day!


I hope your day is sweet,
