We are researching the life of Saints.
Learning Intention: To research the life of a Saint.
To understand that Saints are ordinary people who did miraculous things in their life.
Success Criteria: I will be successful if I research a Saint.
I will be successful if I use my QUIP to put my research into key words about the life of my Saint.
I will be successful if I complete an open-minded portrait about my Saint.

Below you have websites to search your information on Saints and videos to watch about the life of a Saint. When you complete your open-minded portrait on your Saint remember to write from your Saints point of view. Remember to think about what special qualities your Saint might have that gives them the strength to do miraculous things. Remember to fill out your Quip about your Saint to help with your information report and research poster about your Saint.

Posted by cbisby | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on March 7, 2015

This term we have been learning how to be an independent learner in our new learning space.
We have completed a Y-Chart identifying what being an independent learner sounds like, feels like and looks like in our new learning space. We have identified learning experts in the classroom that can help if we are confused about work or can help us log on to the computer if we experience a problem.

We are also organising our pop up restaurant ‘Amazing Fruit and Veggie Bar’.Year One and Two have been split into four groups; Advertising, diners, waiters and chefs. We are excited to be having a restaurant very early next term.

Please use this blog to see what we are doing in class.

Happy Learning
