icebreakerIn Writers’ Workshop we practised writing sizzling starts. Using this Antarctica photo prompt, we tried using dialogue to start our story. Below are are three examples from our writing.

In your comment can you give one of the writers some feedback? Tell them what you liked about their writing, and maybe suggest how they could improve their work.

20150820-145954.jpgWe participated in the M.A.D. Hour project ‘A Mountain of Warmth’ to help the Year 7 and 8 classes with their service learning. We brought in warm coats, blankets and shoes from home.

How did you feel about our project? Can you comment about the connection between our project and the College goals of Respect, Integrity and Courage?
