Chloe! WOW! I am blown away by your creativity and effort! Today the endangered species project was due and I got so many different kinds of assignments. The content was dictated, but the class was allowed to present their assignment any way they chose. I certainly did not expect a cake! Chloe wrote her assignment in coloured icing onto a cake! How brilliant!
I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the projects!

At the moment the year 8’s are working on a project about an endangered species of their choice.
I’m looking forward to seeing them all! Remember they are due on Nov 22nd.
I’m particularly looking forward reading Jess’s because she’s doing her project on my favourite animal! The turtle! Well, she’s doing the Egyptian Tortoise, but it’s similar. Here is a picture of one:
Isn’t it cute?!!!!!

Today we wrote articles about a woman (Jane Hoskin) who was lost in the desert for days and then rescued. Here are some of them.

The year 8’s did a test today as we finished our topic on the Asia-Pacific region. I was very impressed with the results. Great job guys! You all worked together so well and found all the answers, learning lots about our region.

We wrote about where we went on holidays and what types of terrain we encountered.
On the holidays I went to Echuca. Echuca is situated on the murray river, but is a fairly dry region most of the time.
On my holidays I went up mountains, through valleys, and to wetlands. The mountains were mainly used for national parks and little towns. The valleys varied from flat and grassy to rocky and lots of trees which was mainly used for grazing and crops. The wetlands were used for natural wildlife and there were tracks for walking for humans.
