On our first day together in Callisto Class we wrote a recount called 'The Adventures of My Holiday Shoes'. Today I would like you to have another go at this task and write a recount of what you and your shoes have been doing during the recent break.
Start by planning what you will write about by drawing a visual time line of 4 events/activities you and your shoes have done over the last week. Each event or activity will form a paragraph of your writing.
Once you have completed your time line you are read to begin writing. When we did this in class in September some of you wrote in the first person as though your shoes were narrating the recount and some of you wrote from you own personal viewpoint.
At the end of last term we read chapter 12 of Edge of Extinction. Today I would like you to write a recap of the story so far.

This term we will be introducing some new learning about explorers and animals and their habitats.
To begin this topic I would like you to draw your own world map. Remember a world map is an image of what Earth would look like if it was drawn on a flat piece of paper. Use a whole page in your Home Learning Journal and if you can try to draw your map without looking online. Remember to label your map - you should be able to name the 7 continents and 5 Oceans we have learnt about in other areas of our learning. This is quite a challenging task and I would love to see pictures of the maps you create.
