Run Jump Throw VoiceThread

The Hoiho Class are learning how to use VoiceThread.  This is a Web 2.0 tool that allows us to create slide shows that the students can add comments to.  Comments can be made by adding text, voice recordings or videos.  We will be using this next term as well.  Here is one we started about our Run Jump Throw day.

Almost the holidays!

What a busy term!  12 weeks feels like a very long time and the children are feeling it too.  We have had a little chat about trying extra hard this week to be patient with our friends as everyone is tired and a little more sensitive than usual.

Thanks to all the parents who have helped make term 1 a success.  The kids have done some great learning and we are looking forward to a fresh start next term.
