Today some of the students had their first go at creating a film animation. We talked about creativity and how we can be creative in the classroom. Tylor and Cooper were creative when they worked together, shared ideas, reflected on what was working and they had fun! Its fun being engaged and creative.
It was an exciting morning on Thursday as we were expecting our first Skype phone call and interview.
Our Inquiry Unit is looking at ‘How schools have changed from the past?’
So we took the opportunity to interview Grandparents about their memories and accounts of school in the past.
Before our Skype Interview we needed to organise and think of some questions. We worked in groups to come up with as many questions we could think of. As a class we bundled these questions looking at common themes emerging such as punishment/dress code/transport and the school curriculum.
Before our Sykpe session we also assigned some special roles to students.
Thomas started the session by introducing the class and asking the first question.
