In Team 12 we have a class blog and everyone in my class has their own blog that we can post our own work on. At our school every child from year 3 up to year 6 has their own blog. I can not wait to see what other learning you have been up to.

We have a class blog and are learning how to be safe and communicate appropriately online. As we have 30 students in our class it can sometimes be a challenge to have everyone online at the same time. We have a literacy team of six great readers who are learning how to keep a team blog.

There are approximatey 200 or so students at our school.

Hi Courtney

Our class integrated topic is based on wind energy and things that fly so this afternoon we made paper planes of different shapes and weights (ie: newspaper, typing paper, heavy paper etc) and recorded three of their flight distances. We were also given the opportunity to make modifications to the thrust, weight, lift or drag.

Hi Lacey

Thank you for your comment. To do printmaking we needed cardboard, roller that's a paint brush kinder thing, paint and a pencil. It only takes about 5 minutes to complete but it takes a pretty long time to dry.

Our morepork art can come in different colours but first you have to do a white print. I haven’t done one yet but I’m doing mine on Monday.
