One of my students just finished a unit on Treasure Island and Kidnapped. (See an earlier post) and has been working on a board game based on the books. I've been able to give him extra time and resources to complete it. He has 'road tested' it a few times and it seems to work well.
It rained all day today and some of the kids spent lunchtime playing Minecraft on their iPads.( see image below)
Next week I start our unit on King Kong ( See an earlier post for a link to the unit) and on Wednesday we're off to see the musical which starts this weekend in Melbourne. it looks HUGE. Next term we'll start with a unit on The Dolls' House ( see recent post) and The Wolves of Willoughby Chase ( To be posted soon) and we'll follow that up with a horror unit. ( AAAAAH! Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy and Mr Hyde!)
Also just 2 more weeks before the winter holidays.
