Gold…when, where and who?

Just three simple questions.

How many of you  believe that your  group was able to confidently answer them during your discussion?

 Perhaps you might need to dig a little deeperBe careful…there is such a thing as ‘fools gold’.

 Also…what image have you decided to include on your Gold Book cover and why?

A Quest for Gold

No… this post is not about winning gold at the upcoming Commonwealth Games.
It is in fact, about a quest for completion of work in the Gold Book and Gold Diary.

So mum and dad for your information…
During the past week, we have dedicated class time to the tasks related to the ‘Gold’ unit of work mentioned on the weekly tracking sheet.
I have been greatly encouraged by the fact that all students handed in their work to be scored this morning.This is always a good sign!

The standard of work could generally be described as ‘more than satisfactory’ however, in some cases, the words ‘impressive’ and ‘awesome‘ spring to mind.

And so…mum and dad, as stated for this weeks learning goal, you should look forward to the sharing of the scoring of the first few Gold Book activities.

The slide show below showcases examples of student work.
