What S3 Fred has been doing!!
Hello everyone! Have a read of what S3Fred has been doing !!
Our class had to decide on a class name. We voted for Fred Hollows out of Nancy Bird, Ned Kelly and Pemulwuy. We voted for him because he was very intelligent and he gave back eyesight to people. He worked with indigenous people to build a medical centre to treat eye disease. He then went to work in Africa in a place called Eritrea. He created a lens factory and trained other people to treat the eye disease. He died in 2008 from cancer but his wife created the Fred Hollows foundation to continue his work.
Well, we did some contract work, we had to choose what activities we wanted to do and when we wanted to do them. That was a lot of fun!! What S3Fred has been doing this week!!
Hello everyone! Have a read of what S3Fred has been doing this week!!
We also looked at Bloom’s Taxonomy tasks, the levels are remembering, understanding, applying, analysing, evaluating and creating! They are from low to high thinking skills.
Also we did reading tasks, we picked a book to read chapters 1 and 2 and choose from different tasks. A few examples are draw your favourite character from the book and 5 questions you would ask the author and there were more activities to choose from. That was really an amazing thing to do!!
S3 Fred have been working out strategies to help us with the NAPLAN Tests. Last week we did a math test to see what things we need to learn and made goals from what we didn’t know. Miss York set us some work that matches our goals. We do worksheets and play Mathletics to achieve our goals.
We have also been writing our narrative quality criteria, it means things that make a good narrative these were some of our answers complex sentences, orientation, complication, resolution, who, what, where, when and why. We have also been learning about descriptions for our narrative. We had to use our imagination and think about different settings. We were playing a game called the circle game, whoever had the ball had to say something that is shiny some of our answers were gold, earrings, necklace, diamond and a gold key. For NAPLAN we have been learning about our senses to put into our narrative we had to think about our five senses and pretend that we were in a setting eg shopping centre, cemetery, hospital, jungle, desert, and forest.
