Welcome to Term 4.
I have uploaded most of your fantastic videos of your stories from last term.  I will upload these to the blog this week.
The class / teacher laptop is at the 'fix it' shop so things are a bit chaotic. Trying to work between the Mac book, iPads and my missing PC is fun!
I am looking forward to an exciting term, production, Grandparents Mass, testing, reports and camps.  We have a lot to squeeze into 9 weeks.

Is there a mouse in my house!!!!

Mrs Rush thinks she saw a mouse at home tonight. She quickly put the kids in the car and raced out and got a mouse trap (sorry I usually am kind to God's creatures - but I do not think I will sleep tonight).....
Maybe it is time to get another cat.
Any one else got an exciting mouse story to share.

Digital Citizenship

Today we were learning about digital citizenship. We are all digital citizens when we are online like Knowledge Net, Facebook, Moshi Monsters, Tut put....
We discussed how safe we are on the internet, what detail about ourselves we should not put on blogs and other sites. Lots of us have really good rules at home to keep us safe on the internet.
We had real good fun using the activotes and want to use them lot more in class.
Mrs Rush spoke like a computer and we got to do drum rolls....

We also looked at what we should put on our own blog, like not using full names only our first names.
