Whilst I was checking through the blogposts today I realised that our school blog is just over one year old!   Happy Birthday blog!   Thanks to all the chiildren and adults who have contributed to the blog, it just keeps going from strength to strength.   Thanks also to all the people across the world who have commented and looked at what we are doing here in Charlestown, it’s been an amazing journey that still keeps going!

Today we used a program called wordle to assess the quality of our character descriptions in literacy. Wordle is a program that makes ‘word clouds.’

We looked at a picture of a man looking over the edge of a cliff or well and wrote a 100 word description about him. We then used synchroneyes to look each others work and pasted it all into wordle.

We found out that most of us described the character using phrases like ‘he looked….’ Next time that we do this we are going to try and use much more powerful words to describe what we see.

I like what we did today because it was really intresting, we all wrote a story and on chat we all sent our story so it would appear on everyones.
