Health and our bones!

In health we are learning about the bones in our body. We did an activity about our bones. We had to go into groups of 4.

We got a large piece of butcher’s paper.

Then someone from each group had to lie on the piece of butcher’s paper.

The other three people from the group would trace around the person that was lying on the butcher’s paper.

After we had traced around the person that was lying on the butcher’s paper we had to outline it with black texta.

Once we had outlined the body on the piece of paper we had to draw all the bones from the skeletal system in different coloured textas.

After that we had to label the bones in the body.

We thought that the bones activity was so much fun. It taught us lots of different facts about the skeletal system. Did you know that the finger bones are called phalanges?

Tomorrow is our very first Spelling lesson for the year. There will be 3 spelling groups in my class and Mrs Molloy and Daldry will have 2 spelling groups in their class. I’m asking students in my class to nominate a name for their spelling group by leaving a comment on this post with your nomination. Last year we had the ‘Lightning Bolts’, ‘Thunderbooks’ and ‘Marvin the Martian’ groups. Nominations close this Wednesday @ 5pm. After this I will do another post asking you all to vote for your spelling group name. I’m looking forward to reading your nominations.

Quadblogging: It’s our turn.

This week it is our turn to be the focus of our Quadblogging buddies. We would like to try something new this week and hope that our three Quadblogging classes can get involved. Over on the far right of our blog there is a ‘Send Voicemail’ tab (Pictured below is a photo of our blog and circled in red is the location of the tab). By clicking this tab you can send us a voicemail. We would really love some Voicemail questions from you. You might have a question about Australia, Adelaide, Our Class, subjects we do, facilities at our school or our blog. We would love to hear from you and answer your questions. To help us out with answering your questions could you please let us know who you are (first names only) and what school you are from before asking your question. Our class is waiting to hear from you.

Blogging Avatars for 2012

Avatars are a way to have a graphical presence on the internet without using your photo. We have constructed our avatars that we will be using on our blog for this year. Check out below what we came up with.

Do our Avatars remind you of anyone famous? Leave a comment with your look a like suggestions.
