Students this week have spent many hours of classroom time researching, writing, editing and publishing their Sovereign Hill school letter.
We have set a deadline for the completion of this activity….this coming Wednesday. This is when the letters are to be posted to Sovereign Hill.
Below are some fine examples of student letters.
This certificate was meant to be handed to three or four writers of outstanding Anzac Soldiers’ Letters.
However, considering of the depth of research,the careful attention paid to the task criteria and the conscientious effort applied to composing your letters, deciding upon the worthy few proved far too difficult.
As a class we have spoken many times about the ‘craft of writing’.
Powerful writing creates a strong image and stirs emotions in the mind of the reader.
In this, your second Gold Diary entry, you must do just that.
Can you put into words what it must have been like for many who travelled to Australia in search of fortune, in search of a better life?
Those that left their home and families behind knowing that there was little hope of returning to their loved ones.
Can you capture that moment?
A play on words or is ‘Bob’ playing with words?
You be the judge. Tell me what you think and why.
Watch the video clip. ( Sorry once again…this cannot be viewed at school.)
Alternatively you can obtain the video from the ‘to collect folder’ on students.
Speaking of the dying art of script writing, Abbott and Costello, a comedy duo straight out of the 1940’s , say it all. Can you work out who is on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and the other fielding positions? Listen carefully, oh..and laugh if you wish. Let me know when you have worked it out. You may be rewarded.
This is a ‘You Tube’ video and as such can only be viewed at home.
For your information: This very clever comedy routine is featured in the USA’s Baseball Hall of Fame.
