For World Literature Week we created our own books using the Storyjumper.com site.
Children worked in pairs or small groups to write and edit their stories, which were based on the work of Dr. Seuss. Our stories needed to be funny and sometimes silly, but also have a strong message or moral, as with Dr Seuss's many children's stories.
We took our stories to the ICT Lab where we used the Storyjumper.com site to make them come to life using an array of backgrounds, fonts, props and photos. Below are the links for books that your children have made - simply click on the titles to read the books.

Well, that was fun!
Thank you to all the parents for coming to our first assembly on Friday, and another big thanks for the wonderful costumes you arranged for the students - they looked fantastic and it really added to the show.
It was a challenging time with 1/3 of the class missing over the course of the week, but they practised hard and gave an exceptional performance on the day. I am extremely proud of their efforts, especially those who took on new or extra roles at short notice. They helped the show to run as smoothly as possible and it showed great poise and maturity.
Below is the full video and a few snaps from the day, which can also be found at the Charter Facebook page.
Once again, it was great to see so many parents for our first show - we look forward to seeing you again next time!
Using a ball of string, we identified different skills that we have and connected people with matching skills. We repeated the process until everyone was connected, which created a web. This web is similar to how our brains make connections with cells called neurons when we learn new skills. We let some connections go, making the web less secure - a lot like when we stop practicing a skill, it's harder to perform that skill... A great way to show that we need to keep our brains active in order to keep them sharp!
