Skype with Class 4B

Yesterday 6EK had a Skype session with Class4B on

“What makes a good writer?”

The students from 4B asked the students from 6EK a range of questions to gather information on ways they can improve their writing.

Some things suggested were:

  • Re-read your writing
  • Read aloud
  • Read to a friend
  • Remember to use Capital Letters
  • Check grammar
  • Check Spelling
  • Use Paragraphs
  • Plan your writing before you write.

Some things the students in 6EK do to help them improve their writing include:

  • 100WC
  • Writer’s Notebooks
  • Rocket Writing
  • Touch Typing  on their Chromebooks
  • Sharing their writing with others in our class through Google to get feedback from each other.



  • Have you got any other writing tips to be a good writer?
  • What strategies work best for you?
  • What do you like most about writing?

Skype with Class 4B

Today we had a Skype session with Class4B from Mildura.

As part of our #ebuddies14 each week we focus on connecting with a different class from around the world. In doing this it allows us to see how others learn and allows us to share the wonderful learning we are doing with others.

During our Skype session we spoke to Class4B about the weather, the size of their school, their school camp and things they have been learning about this year. We can not wait to continue to connect with other classes from around the world. imgres-1 Questions:
