Term 3 Week 1

Hi I'm Laura and I will be your guest blogger. Check out what we have been doing this week.

Ethan wrote this piece of writing on his own and used a dictionary to edit it. He published it in his Google Docs and illustrated it using Doodle Buddy on the iPad.
Check out our Walls:

We have been looking at questions that you can Google and 'ungoogleable' questions. 
We also plan our day we have some people that are supported so they use the visual planner and for self managing they use daily planner and the weekly planner.
Last term we put up a map of the world and then we put up what culture we are from. 

Last term we got to make some goal fish. We put our goals in to the fish.
The learner profile is put up for all of us to see and use.
In the morning we write how we feel on our tweet sheets.
The maths wall is what we use to know what we are working on for maths.
Every Tuesday we have learning advisory time so we have a topic that we work on. This week we talked about giving feedback.

Term 2 Week 7, 8 & 9

We have had such a busy couple of weeks, we haven't had time to write a post!

Check out what we have been up to:

We have been learning about different cultures. It has been great to see our collection of cultural artefacts grow.  We have also been discussing googlable vs. non googleable questions as we develop our 'I Wonder' wall.  

We watch this video which sparked a few more wonderings...

Culture Day was a huge success! Highlights were dressing up, the parade and sharing our cultural feast.

We had an expert come in and help us make fried bread, which was delicious!

How are you feeling today?
We have been starting the day by checking in with everyone to see how they started their day. We have developed this into our twitter wall, where we come in and write a 'tweet' about how our morning has been.  Check it out below:

We had the 80's Disco last Friday night. Everyone looked awesome in their 80s costumes and had heaps of fun. Here are some photos from the night:
