Week 6 Term 3 2008

This week we produced our first voice thread. It was so exciting as we pretended that our classroom was a recording studio and we were as quiet as we could be as everyone took a turn to read their personal recount of flying their parachute.

We have explored the differences between parachutes and hot air balloons and as a class organised our thoughts using a Venn diagram. (click on the image below to enlarge it)

To show our developing understanding of the differences between parachutes and hot air balloons we drew them on kidpix. BubbleShare: Share photos - Create and Share Crafts

Next week we will complete a Venn diagram by ourselves using a template on the computer. Look at Jude and Ciaran’s work below.(click on the image to enlarge it) Ciaran


We are all gaining confidence in using the class camera – with most of us being able to turn it on and off as well as zoom in and out. This week we took a photo of a dump truck which Dylan kindly got for us from room 4.

As a result of reading our shared book ‘The bus ride’ we have begun to explore the use of simple animations using kidpix. While on the bus Grandpa and Tom play a game of eye spy we decided to try out our ever increasing skills on kidpix by building up a picture based on a letter of the alphabet. We hope to do some more of these next week. So look out for them on next weeks blog.

On Tuesday we took part in the schools mini Olympics which was a lot of fun. Juwon was our official photographer. She captured the images below as we watched the opening ceremony and took part in the games
