Watch the video below and discuss if the cows should have electric blankets. How do you think the cows were feeling? How was the farmer feeling? What was clever about the ducks?
Rewrite the story. Consider paragraphs, full stops and time connectives.
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.
Ella was our typist and recorded all the answers.
Jessica filmed the session.

This week some of the Grade Two students are starting their own blogs.
We will also start a Blogging Club on Wednesday at Lunch time in order to practise some essential blogging skills.
The first lesson will be on how to get to the dashboard and change your theme to personalise your blog.
Below is video by a Teacher at Castlemaine North Primary school that shows you how to do just this.
Thanks sbaglia for the video.
We love PE and practising all our ball and movement skills with Mr Epps. We learn how to hold a ball, throw a ball, the position of our feet and our hands. We have also learnt some new terms like “chicken wings”. Today we practised these skills whilst inside because of the rain. Watch the video below.
