Interesting Places

What an exhausting, but FUN day! We used the laptops for every lesson and we got SO much done. Mrs N is so proud of us and is thrilled to see the development in our ICT, literacy and numeracy skills as the year is progressing.

We began the day by welcoming Miss Mc, who is helping our class out every Thursday while she gets experience as a teacher assistant. Mr F, who is a teacher from America, was also helping us out today.

For Daily Writing, we all wrote on our writing blog. The topic was "An interesting place I have visited." We wrote about the Perth Mint, AQWA, Penguin Island, Rottnest Island and lots of other places we found interesting. Our writing has improved so much since the start of the year. Some of us could hardly read what we wrote on the blog in the first week of first term, but we're doing really well now! Mrs N was especially happy to see that we were remembering to call the C.O.P.S. while we were writing.

We did some more thinking about water and how it is used. We created Wordles listing people and things that use water. We also used Tux Paint to illustrate a way that we use water ourselves. Unfortunately, silly Mrs N left her thumb drive at school so we can't show pictures of our work until tomorrow, so check back then, but trust all looks FANTASTIC!
