On October 31st, we celebrate Halloween, thought to be the one night of the year when ghosts, witches, and fairies are especially active.

Whilst Kindergarten, Middle School & High School celebrated Halloween last week, our elementary school was taking IOWA Tests!

This week our Homeroom Parents' have been busy decorating homerooms across the elementary school ready for Thursday's (5th November) Celebration.

ICT integration meets Halloween and Mr Towse is showcasing Ditty and WordFoto.  It is not the first time these apps have featured in Mr Towse Blog!

If you are a regular visitor to Mr Towse's Blog you may remember the post, featuring WordFoto.  It was used in Grade 4's Previous Unit of Inquiry - Central Idea: Creating and responding to art develops understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Here the girls used the app to create a piece of art to represent social issues.

Mr Towse has used Word Foto this Halloween to represent words associated to this particular time of year.  This was given to students and students used their Word Foto to create a word bank of ideas.  It was a great link to week eight's 100-word challenge.
