Last week, Primary 3 had the job of re-telling the stories in their reading books. Each group planned out the story, then made the scenes out of modelling clay. We took pictures of the scenes, recorded our narrations then uploaded everything to Windows Movie Maker.
All the groups have completed theirs now and they are on here for you to have a look at. Please let us know what you think of our first attempt at making Digital Stories!
Group 1 – Yummy Scrummy!
Group 2 – Webster’s Week
Group 3 – The Little Dragon
Group 4a – Yo Ho Ho
Group 4b – Yo Ho Ho
Group 5 – The Football Accident (this group made up their own story!)
This week we didn’t read from our usual reading books. Instead we used group plays. Everyone in the group highlighted their parts in the play and practised them in school and at home. On Wednesday we recorded our plays and we’ve put them on here to share. Please let us know how you think we have done by leaving us a comment!
Today in class we made Friendship Cinquains. A cinquain is a five lined poem that follows a pattern. First of all we interviewed a friend to find out how they would describe themselves. We also asked them what their hobbies were and what makes them a good friend. We used the information to help us write the poems. We even asked them if they had a nickname to add to the last line of the poem!
Have a look below to see how they turned out ……. and leave us a comment to let us know what you think of our work
In 2007 Mrs P, a teacher in Australia, sent a copy of this book to Mrs V and her class. This term we’ve been using it for our book study. It’s about an Australian family who go on a three month caravan tour of their home country.
We’re really enjoying the book, but we had some questions about Australia and what it might be like to live there.
Mrs V suggested that we could ask Mrs P some of the questions on twitter
On Tuesday, Mrs V logged in to our twitter account and we began asking our questions.
We were all astonished when we realised that Mrs P was on twitter at the same time as we were, and she began to answer our questions as we asked them!
Later, we looked at all the conversations we’d had on twitter and we decided to make a classroom display so that we could share what we’d learned.
We’ve also turned our question and answer twitter conversation into a short movie so that we can share what happened here on our blog. We even added some Aboriginal didgeridoo music to entertain you while you read through the conversations we had.
