Harmony Day

For Harmony Day our class will be teaming up with Mr Palmer’s Class from Thiele Primary School. Our goal is to get together and leave a quality comment on a classroom blog locally, interstate or overseas. Hopefully we will learn a lot about what life is like for other students and open the lines of communication by asking questions and sharing about our experiences here on Campus. We will let you know how we get on in a future post.

Now for the task……

1. Refresh your own memory and instruct your buddy on what a quality comment is by following the link below.

2. Choose one or two blogs to explore and leave a quality comment. Don’t forget to include a greeting (Give some information about where you are from and what year level you are in), compliment the post, add new information and ask a question.

4. Have fun!

World Education Games

The Year 3s are really excited to be taking part in the World Education Games this year. They each have their own username and password and have been practicing their Maths, Literacy and Science skills online over the past couple of weeks. Over the next three days we will be taking part in the World Literacy, Maths and Science Days. We will be using the PAC computer room and the Nativity laptops for an hour on each of the days competing against students from all over the world. If you are away on any of these days or don’t get to complete the challenge you can participate using your login details on a home computer. We look forward to sharing with you, our experience of this event in a future post.
