We’ve been experimenting with 

Picture Tools in Microsoft Word Word 

 to come up with some very creative ideas.

Our Teacher’s Aide Phil, even got into the act and surprised herself at what she could create.

Stay tuned for some great ideas when the students display their imaginative work on the blog soon.

You are Wanted!

Did you know . . . ?

The WANTED POSTER dates back to the days of the Old West in the United States when the law was trying to catch bank robbers or cattle rustlers.

Usually a Wanted poster was used to warn the public that the law was after a certain person who has committed a crime, such as this Ned Kelly poster.

Information contained on a wanted poster may include a photograph or drawing of the person and the crime for which the person is wanted. Sometimes a reward is offered for their capture. 

*        *        *        * 

Since we have only GREAT students at our school, we decided to create WANTED POSTERS with a difference.

 At St Robert’s School, we want to reward students for all the wonderful qualities they possess.

What are YOU wanted for ? – your kindness, your sense of humour, your great basketball skills, your love of pets, your good manners, or for just being happy .   .   .   .

We created Wanted Posters for ourselves listing the qualities we thought we demonstrated.

Here are a few examples.

                               Jude 3JS and Lucy 3KH

        

                                Alex 4MA and Millie 4MM

        

Making our poster on the computer taught us lots of skills. You can see the skills we learned for each class level at the beginning of each class flip book.

There are more completed examples of our WANTED POSTERS on the Blog page for each class. Just follow the links below.

Every Picture tells a Story

In ICT this term, a number of classes have been learning about the many functions of  and how to use these functions to help them produce work confidently in their classrooms.

At first we focused on changing font styles, colours, size, layout and adding special effects etc to create written pieces.

Here are several ways  LUCY in 3KH learned to write her name.

Then we progressed to creatively producing some great art work by inserting, manipulating and integrating shapes, photos, clipart etc. into their work. Of course with each grade level, we added more complex skills to their understanding.
