Holiday Homework Due 1st Wednesday Term 3

Make a Movie!

You can do this by yourself, in pairs, a group - I don't mind.

You could make a movie about your holidays, re-make a music video, come up with your own script for a short film, make a mini documentary or a montage of photos to music (you can check out the pretty average videos that I have made for my blog on vimeo if you don't know what I mean).

It's easy to put together movies in Movie Maker, which is free to download.
Once you have made your movie upload it to You Tube or Vimeo - you can make it private so the rest of the world can't see it if you wish.

Grab the embed code for your video off the site you have uploaded it to and pop it onto your blog so I can check your awesome work.

Now, if you are having trouble with any of these things, let me know and I will try help out.  However, there are heaps of tutorials available on line.  Just use google.

Home Learning Week 8

I'm giving you a week off.  I am behind with marking your work (my sincerest apologies) and I don't think it is fair that I give you more to do when it won't be looked at.

You could use it to:

  • Do your science fair projects.
  • Read a book or magazine for your own enjoyment.
  • Start up a blog on a topic you like, or keep a journal.
  • Make me something nice.
  • Learn French by podcast (coffee break French is quite good)
  • Go for a walk or run.
  • Find out what writing competitions are happening and enter them.
  • Look up some of the 'instruction' posts done by other learners in the class this year and make something for your family.

Collaborative Story Due 13/6


Just a reminder that your 3 day ep idea home learning is due today.

How are we going with the collaborative stories?  There should be 2 -3 pieces of the chain completed by now. Email me if someone in your group is holding the process up.
If you've read this - annoy the rest of the class to get theirs done.  Text them.  Message them on facebook.
I will give out a prize to the group who gets the task completed first.  Someone from the group send me an email when it is done.

If you're at home twiddling your thumbs with nothing to do, why don't you go to the local library.  Check out the wallwisher that we put together earlier in the year for good book suggestions.

Enjoy the last of your five days off.  I'm about to go to more meetings and hopefully learn some interesting things.  See you on Friday.
