Writing Plays

Today we starting to write our plays in small groups. We will be working on our scripts during the week. Our focus is on making our characters seem real.

These are some of our reflections about today’s writing.

April- I’m excited about play scripts because kids can organise their own thoughts and work in teams.

Tracy- Play scripts are about acting and learning about expressing ourselves using different voices.

Doan- Play scripts are about different character roles and using our voices to act out the character.

Huy- Play scripts are about dialogue and setting the scenes.

Duy- We are planning and writing our own play scripts from stories.

Sally- Play scripts are about making a narrative more real and interesting. The characters become real to us.

Thanks for the reflections!!:)

Our Water Heat Conduction Experiment

This is a cool science experiment to show what a great heat conductor water is. You’ll need some balloons, a candle and some water. Check it out and be amazed!….As you might imagine, the secret lies in yet another amazing property of water – it’s ability to conduct heat. Instead of using a paper bag, this modern day version of the demonstration uses an ordinary balloon, some water and a candle. It’s a combination that’s guaranteed to make people stand back.
