Student Led Lessons

Today, Danny shared his knowledge of how to create his own website using the WIX program.  Danny set the class the task of creating their own website and offered his assistance along the way.

Cameron S introduced the Sphero devices to the class and had different groups coding using blocks, java and free driving to make them move!

The Stolen Generations

This term we are exploring the Stolen Generations.  This will be explored through watching the movie Rabbit Proof Fence.  To begin our topic today, we viewed some behind the news clips explaining what happening during the Stolen Generations  and on the apology given by Kevin Rudd.

 

 

 

 

Students teaching students

This morning we started our student led lessons and what better way to share the amazing knowledge we have in our classroom.

Lucas and Mathew started us off by teaching us how to use the program blender to animate!

Thien and Khao taught us how to create music using garage band.

It was great to see our students speaking so confidently infront of the class, sharing their knowledge whilst supporting and helping students along the way.  Well done Lucas, Mathew, Thien and Khoa.  Stay tuned each week for more!

 

 

Moral of the story

Our writers notebook mini lesson today was focused on exploring the moral of story in different picture books.  Students recorded what the teaching element/moral was and how the text engaged the reader.  Students will be creating their own picture book and may like to include their own moral in their story.

 

Camera Angles

In preparation for our film study this term, we started to explore some different camera angles.  These included a close up, worms eye view, birds eye view, long shot, high angle and eye level shot.  Each student had to choose an item or person to create different shots using different camera angle.  

Investigation Time!

Welcome back to term 3! We started our Tuesday morning off with some investigations!  We saw the return of some much loved activities, which included giant jenga, card making, mini soccer, table tennis, wood work, lego and cards.  It was great to see all the students engaging in their chosen activity! A great way to start our morning off.

Students will use the CLARA powers to reflect on their learning and participation this morning.
