I just found out that R3 were amongst the winners in the Student Blogging Challenge.
A few weeks ago everyone in R3 had to write a post on what they would include if they were in charge of the Student Blogging Challenge. Well the winners have been announced and here is what they said:
Way to go team, you were all winners!! Everyone worked extremely hard writing their post and it’s great to be amongst the winners. The 5 Edublog Pro Subscriptions can be used to set up portfolios for next year!
I would like to thank Miss W and Sue Waters who ran the Student Blogging Challenge. We have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in all the different activities and will definitely be entering next year!
In R3 we have been learning a Jump Jam song for Christmas. Well to make it a little more interesting we decided to make it a competition between the boys and the girls.
Anyway we want you to decide who did the best job at performing it. All you have to do is scroll down below this post and watch both performances and then vote in the poll. The winners get a small reward from Stephen.
So what are you waiting for? You have the power to decide!!!
Today was the last game of the season for my touch rugby team the Crusaders.
At the end of today’s game we had a little awards ceremony to celebrate our awesome team. Millar has been a standout player and was chosen for Player of the Year. Alice has come on in leaps and bounds and received Most Improved Player.
It has been an awesome season and I have really enjoyed being the coach. I look forward to next year!
Hi and welcome to Anna’s Animal Facts. Today we are learning some facts about whales. I think whales are really interesting because they are the biggest mammal in the world. Some of the facts I have learnt are:
Calves of the larger whales like a humpback are about 4m long at birth
Young Orca whales are very playful
The second largest whale (Fin whale) can swim at 48km per hour
The Grey whale is the only bottom-feeding whale. It scoops up huge mouthful of mud from the seabed which it sieves to find food
A Blowhead whale has the largest mouth of any animal in the world- a minibus could drive into it.
Pilot whales have sharp hooked teeth. The hook shape helps to stop fish escaping.
The moans of the blue whale register 180 decibels. This is the loudest sound made by any animal and is much louder then a jet engine.
The Gery whales migrate the furthest, as much as 20,400km each year from the Arctic to Mexico and back again.
See you next time on Anna’s Animal Facts. I hope you learnt something.
