Graduation Dance

This afternoon 6/7 HM and ND had their first session to learn a group dance for our graduation night.  We were very proud of the students efforts this afternoon and it was great to see everyone get involved.  We can’t wait to share this with you all in a few weeks!

Poetry

Today we explored the poem “The Uncertainty of the Poet” by Wendy Cope.  The class created their own poems by using 10 words and changing the location of where each word is in the sentence.  We have seen some fantastic examples!

List Poems

Our  literacy focus today was list poems! List poems don’t need to rhyme and the longer they are the more effective they are!

Here are some of our funny lines.

I know someone who hid in a suitcase.

I know someone who scored a penalty in a soccer match.

I know someone who eats too much.

I know someone who has broken their laptop three times.

I know someone who ran straight into a screen door.

I know someone who had to replace their laptop charger 7 times in one year.

I know someone who is addicted to my little pony.

I know someone who dabs when they sneeze.   

I know someone who burnt their finger.

I know someone who does not know how to make poems.

I know someone who changes their hair every month.

I know someone who recorded my singing.

I know someone who slapped themselves in the face.

 

But I’ve never met someone who has won the lottery. 

 

Healthy or Unhealthy?

This morning we started our new topic on healthy eating! In small groups, students received a plate of different foods.  They had to record if each item was healthy or unhealthy by providing a reason why and then researched the health benefits for each individual food.  They all did so well to not eat the food straight away!
