Our Writing Blog

In ICT during our Orchard time we have been learning about writing on our own blogs. We have used our own personal blog to publish writing about our senses and our weekend news. When we logged into our blogs we chose an avatar picture to go with our names. We then chose the background to our blog and we were able to choose lots of different styles to make it personal. Once we had set up our blogs we started to write our first posts. We have been using this blog as a tool to help us publish our writing. You can find a link to the blogs on this page under the Literacy links. The title is Our Writing. We hope you enjoy reading our stories.

Les Mills School of fitness


On Monday we took part in the Les Mills School of Fitness. We did lots of activities to do with fitness. These included a warm up dance, aerobics, team relays around a circle, star jumps and burpees. We thought it was really, really fun and we're all looking forward to doing it again next Monday.

Using our senses

In Room 14, we have been working on using our senses in our writing. After looking at a model of the writing, we used an image from a book to produce our own piece of shared writing. This book was No David by David Shannon. Click on the photo below to view our collaborative writing.

This model was taken from The Writing Book by Sheena Cameron and Louise Dempsey.
