2A have been learning about all the different community workers in Guildford that can help them. They have discovered all about the police, firefighters, doctors, nurses, builders and of course the people who work in a school. To be creative, 2A decided to present the information they know about their favourite community worker. They are still a work in progress but 3 students have completed theirs. Please have a look at what they have done.
When you have finished your blog post you need to read these questions and discuss with a partner.

This semester 34P have enjoyed using technology to help them learn new things in literacy. The blog has been a great place for the students to collaborate and take control of their own learning. The teachers are extremely proud of how they have developed their technology skills and how they are now using the blog as a stepping stone to other learning avenues. We can’t wait to see what they come up with in Semester 2.
Here are some Prezi’s That the students made in response to the previous post – 3/4 P Predicting Task
What an amazing 3 days…..I wonder if some of these images bring back memories.
What else do you remember?
What was your favourite part?
If you didn’t go what did you learn back at school?
What stuck with me?
The history and memories shared at the Australian War Memorial. With amazing dioramas and artefacts which tell the untold stories. Walking into the tomb of the unknown soldier resonated with me in particular.
Seeing the smiles on children’s faces as they play and learn about snow for the first time.
I look forward to seeing your entertaining and informative blog posts!

Miss Ali Khan tells me that you are learning about the difference between narrative writing and persuasive writing.
These are 2 reasons people write. We call them text purposes.
All good writers organise their ideas before writing them down. These days we can use webtools to help us do this. Check out my popplet about text purposes.
Popplet is another webtool like bubblus – http://popplet.com/ Find the link on the blog sidebar.
