Room 3's 'I Am Everyone' Video
April 2010

Some of the Icebreakers (Year 3 and 4 students) have also created a video called 'I Am Everyone'. The same as for Room 4, they were inspired by the YouTube Video of the same name.After seeing the video, the children realised that they become a little part of everyone around them, or of the things that happen to them, or even of their pets or toys. They wanted to create their own video, so some of them brought photos to school and were able to record their favourite ideas into iMovie 09 to create this video.We'd love to hear your comments, below, on WHO or WHAT has made YOU who you are?........ I am...........?

Room 4 - I Am Everyone
March 2010

Room 4 students (Year 2 and 3) have created a video called 'I Am Everyone'. They were inspired by a YouTube Video of the same name (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI_cRXoBaoY). After seeing the video, the children realised that they become a little part of everyone around them, or of the things that happen to them, or even of their pets or toys. They wanted to create their own video, so some of the them brought photos to school and were able to record their favourite ideas into iMovie 09 to create this video. We hope you enjoy it, and also reflect on who YOU are.

The Springston A+ Student
February 2010

The vision for our school identifies the qualities we believe our students need in order to be confident, connected, actively involved learners for life. An A+ student at Springston has the following qualities: they are self-managing learners, adventurous, accepting, articulate and adaptable - A+!To start this year off, teachers were given a task to represent these ideas in a movie, using words that were videoed or photographed around the town. It was quite a challenge! Here is Carol's effort. Follow the words carefully to see how she sees the challenges for Springston students in today's world.
