Today we have been looking at what makes some places special.
We begun by watching this film
We then looked at this form
For Homework can you add a comment answering these questions:
Where might Christians go for pilgrimage or retreat?
What is the impact on those people that go there?
I know how much you all enjoyed our visit to secondary school this afternoon.
Here is a slide show of images.
It would be great if you could add a comment below about your experiences.
This morning we talked a lot about Martha Payne and her school dinners blog. Many of you said that you would like to know more about what she wrote and the controversy surrounding her writings.
I have included the link and a video below.
Link to Martha’s Blog – click on this link.
It would be good for you to read her blog and leave a comment below.
Was it write for the blog to be banned?
Do you think Martha should have been writing her blog in the first place?
This week continues to be another busy week for us as we rehearse for our end of term performance.
Grace has made a poster about our production during ICT, and I know many others have made one too.
I would love to display yours here on the blog – use the class email and send yours in and we can display it just here:
This week in ICT we were looking at creating spreadsheets to show profit and loss. We wanted to know how much items could be bought and sold for at our performance and how much money we would make.
I was very impressed with how quickly many of you picked up creating formulas and by some of your ideas for items to sell.
Next time I want us to look at the real cost of items by visiting this wholesalers site:
Take a look at the site and maybe you could build a spreadsheet of your own before next session.
This afternoon Royantha, Branavee, Katrina and Elizabeth
made a short movie using Lego movie’s on an IPod.
We had to build the characters and set using Lego.
It took long to make it because it was made by taking
Lots of different photo’s and using special effects.
First we hade to take lot’s of picture’s and put them in a time line.
Also you can use music for the whole film.
Secondly we changed the set by taking pictures of black card on
Last we got the big whiteboard and wrote the credits.
We enjoyed the experience and would love to do it again!!
As promised I have combined all of the images from recent events from the last few weeks into a slideshow. To do this I used Animoto.com, though I could have used Photopeach too.
It would be good to have your comments on this post telling me and the class what any of the images in the slideshow mean to you.
Better still embed the slideshow in a post of your own.
To do this press the embed button on the slideshow – copy the code and paste this into a new post, remembering to be in html view to do this.
Looking forward to seeing how many of you will do this by Monday.
We have been continuing to work on Blodin the Beast in our literacy and Mantle Work. I have been really pleased with the writing, art work and ICT that you have done on this theme.
This week we have been imagining what would happen if Blodin’s remains had been found by archaeologists. There would probably be an exhibition at the Natural History Museum. We used this idea to make some exhibition web pages and posters.
Here are some of the posters you created using
BIG HUGE LABS to make your poster and Compfight to find images.
The Scariest Poster – well done if this was yours!
