In Room 8, some of our children who have just started school are learning about the story writing process. This is a video I made for them (using Explain Everything) to demonstrate this process. Children need to:
1. Think of what they are going to write about.
2. Draw a picture plan
3. Reread their story as they write
4. Include the first sound of each word
5. Use the words they know from the word card
Last week some Room 8 children were interviewed by some Room 3 children. Mr Kemp, our friend and a fantastic educator from Singapore has been asking for help with a global collaboration project that he has started. Abby and Kyah interviewed them and asked the following questions, the students then edited and put together the video showing the responses.

Check out our amazing self portraits in Room 8!
We made these by taking photos and then printing them in black and white. The children then used pastel to carefully colour over the top. We talked a lot about shadows, outlines and filling all the gaps.This took 2-3 sessions to complete. The children had a colour copy of the same photo to help them. Didn't they do a wonderful job?
