Delving into our digital world

Term Two Week Two

Delving into our digital world

Welcome to week two! This week we have started writing character descriptions, started talking about digital citizenship and finished reading our novel, we hope you enjoy our blog. by Danina


Our Inquiry into what makes a a good digital citizen is continuing and we watched a VIDEO for 8-10 year olds on the importance of safe digital citizenship.

What did I learn from the video?

  1. Not to talk to people online that I don't know.
  2. Not to post photos online that you wouldn't be happy if your parents saw.
  3. Check your profile is private on facebook.
  4. Not to be overly attached to your online profile.
By Charlize


This week we finished our book that Whaea Emma reads to us after lunch called The 13 storey treehouse written by Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton. It has a bowling alley, lemonade fountain and a tank of man eating sharks! Check out this video taster! We are going to read the rest of the series. Here is your challenge... if the last book in the series (so far) is the 39 storey treehouse then how many books are in the series so far? Write your answer in the comments box.

We have been doing some neat activities to get our writing juices flowing as we have started writing character descriptions.
We had 5 mins to independently create lists under these headings.

Things that are slow...

  • The internet when I go on the computer
  • my mum
  • My imaginary brother
  • My chapter book
  • Me getting dressed in the morning
  • time
  • learning rounding and compensating strategy
  • doing my hair
  • chickens crossing the road
Things that are red...
  • Paint
  • Crayon
  • Clothes
  • Lipstick
  • Tomato sauce 
  • Someone getting angry
  • When you hurt yourself
  • 1B5 books
  • a babies bottom if you don't use nappy cream
  • itchy bites
Try making a list in the comments box of things that are yellow, noisy things or things that are cold.
