GRA Sharing

We’ve been reading our class novel, The Fourteenth Goldfish and are up to Chapter 12. Take this opportunity to go on to this Tackk Stream and share your thoughts. You may choose to summarise what we’ve read so far, disucss animal testing (give reasons or examples), share your thoughts on a character or make a prediction. You may also share pictures but you MUST keep these relevant to your topic (e.g. no reason to share a picture of One Direction or Taylor Swift) and you MUST consider your audience (e.g. if you are disucssing animal testing, please do NOT share distressing images).

Inquiry Week 1 Term 4

Welcome back for your final term in Year Five! We are sharing our class novel, ‘The Fourteenth Goldfish’ with 2 classes, one in Chicago (USA) and the other in Winnipeg (Canada) so part of our inquiry this week is looking into those two places. Make sure your comments are succinct and relevant – remember though, if you don’t understand what you are posting, don’t post it.Strength

Global Read Aloud

This term we will be participating in the Global Read Aloud. We will be connecting with schools from around the globe to share our thoughts. The premise is simple; we pick a book to read aloud to our students during a set 6-week period and during that time we try to make as many global connections as possible. 5 W will be reading ‘The Fourteenth Goldfish’ by Jennifer L. Holm:
