News from 56C – Episode 5

This week’s episode of News from 56C has been produced by Jarryd and Jessica. You can find out information about our class novel, interschool sports, what we prepared in Kitchen, our class inquiry topic and what we have been learning in Maths. Kelly will even share some examples of how to convert fractions into decimals and percentages. Check out the episode below!

Producing our Weekly News Video

Tomorrow we will be producing episode five our our weekly News from 56C podcast. Our podcast started five weeks ago and is a summary of the learning that the have been doing in class. Kelly and Luke produced our first broadcast with very little instruction or teacher guidance and it has grown from there – the project has been student driven.

Last Friday, we spent some time as a class thinking about the purpose of creating the news and how we will know if we are successful when doing it. After all, to be a great learner we need to understand why each activity is important. Students individually brainstormed ideas of the learning that they thought was involved (our WALT – What we are Learning to do) in producing the news and we then put them together on the list below. What a long list!

As you can see, this task is very rich and contains a lot of learning. It is great because we are incorporating all the skills that we learn individually during our time in class. It enables us to integrate all our learning together and show off the skills that we have developed over the weeks and terms at school. Already in just four episodes we have shown that we can look at the feedback and ideas from other news episodes and build on them, as the students have been doing. Make sure you keep an eye out each week for the latest News from 56C and don’t forget to leave a comment!

Camp Podcasts and Vodcasts

After returning from camp, we focused our writing attention on preparing a recount of camp that we could then record for a podcast (audio recording) or vodcast (video recording). This was our first time learning to use this technology and we struck a few problems, which provided us with new learning experiences (we can learn a lot from our mistakes!)

All of our work has now been posted to the blog, and the list below is a summary of what you can see. Click on the links to be taken to the recording or video. Enjoy!
