We had an amazing day on our last Wednesday of term, giving our country presentations to the other classes and feasting on all the delicious food everyone had brought from home. We also enjoyed a skype call to Miss T’s Year5/6 in New Zealand. We discovered that they are just like us! Not really that surprising, since we are all the same age and live in a similar part of the world. Our feast day was a great way to end a busy term in Year 5. We have learned about many things and have enjoyed getting to know one another. As a teacher I love to see the excitement that happens when students really get involved in their own learning. I saw this in Term 1 when so many of you took to edmodo like ‘ducks to water’ and have really embraced it as a great interactive learning tool. I particularly loved the contributions in the Frindle forum when students took on the role of characters! It was entertaining and insightful, a great example to me of how engaging technology can be. I wonder what the highlight of the term has been for you? and for your parents? Please comment to let us all know.
On Tuesday we travelled by train to the centre of Sydney to sing at the Easter in the City festival run by Fusion. We sang well, enjoyed lots of fun activities and only got a little wet in the rain. It was lovely to have so many parents enjoy our performances. This short movie made in Animoto shows you some of our day.
