Hello! You have found your way to 6A’s About page. We are a class of 23 talented, interesting individuals, from horse riders to dancers, football legends to taekwondo champions , gamers to hospitality experts, coders to netballers and we have lots of avid readers. We are part of New Gisborne Primary School, in Victoria, Australia. My students all have their own blogs that are linked to the class blog and you can access these from the sidebar under ‘Class Blogs’.
This is a diary of the learning going on in our classroom. The students blogs are a place for students to express themselves individually and to share what they have created (i.e. writing, photography, reports on school events, etc.) We also use the class blog as a place to find links to other sites to support our learning.
