Week 3 Term 3 2009

Here are the definitions we wrote about bridges written at the beginning of the term.The images were made on KidPix.

BubbleShare: Share photos - Easy Photo Sharing


We visited the junior playground, walked along the swing bridges and each took a photo of one. As a class we are gathering facts from books and the internet about swing bridges - what they look like, what they are made of, where they are used and any other interesting facts we find. We are presenting this information in a class Y chart. Our knowledge of swing bridges is developing.

BubbleShare: Share photos - Find great Clip Art Images.


Sarah bought in a photo of a very long wharf - this has sparked a discussion about whether or not a wharf is a bridge - what do you think?

As the week drew to a close we used wordle to record words we knew related to bridges.

Week 1 and 2 Term 3 2009

Well the term is under way and so is our new topic of study - ' Bridges ' . We have begun the unit by writing a definition of what a bridge is and drawing a bridge on KidPix. These will be on our blog in the coming weeks so look out for them.



Brodie brought in this photo taken when he was little of a swing bridge across the Storm River in South Africa. This lead to an interesting discussion about swing bridges and one we will continue next week as we make a Y chart to collate all the information we collect.


Over the past two weeks we have written narratives - one about teenagers going to the movies and not being able to see as a lady with a rather large hat sat in front in front of them and another about a monkey snatching a banana from a zoo keeper. These will be on the blog over time as the children draw pictures to go with their stories. These stories are delightful and I am sure you will enjoy listening to them.
