Another very exciting project we're working on in the next few weeks, is our Monster Exchange with a school in Detroit, in America. We started it today. We'll be writing more about it soon!
We were very lucky this morning, when Mrs P came into our classroom to talk to us about Aboriginal people. She showed us a really huge map of Australia that showed where all the tribes, or mobs, live. We learned that there are 260 languages that Aborigines speak in Australia. We also learned that they call the land "Mother Earth" because it looks after us and gives us food. It was very interesting and we asked a LOT of great questions.
To help get our brains switched on and our bodies warmed up, we danced to "Shake your Groove Thing" by Alvin and the Chipmunks. We watched and listened to YouTube. It was fun and we want to do it again tomorrow.
To practise our typing, we used paper keyboards! They look just like our real keyboards, except that they're flat and don't actually work. We are going to use them to practise finding letters and punctuation to make our typing faster.
Mrs N is happy to be able to teach us ALL week this week!
