Six Word Memoir- Compulsory post for this week!

Can you describe your life so far in six words? It’s a challenge I 'm giving you. It can also be about your life in Primary school. You must be creative and clever. Remember that these words need to reflect you……not just be six words. Then look for an image that can represent those six words and save it in your computer.
Watch the video below for creative inspiration, but you are not allowed to borrow any ideas.
Have a nice weekend!!

Thank you to Write Out Loud Blog for the idea

This is just the beginning and we think we could make it much better if you shared your ideas as to what to add to the blog.

If You Could Have a Super Power....

What superpower would you like to have?
Tell us about the superpower you would like to have and how would you use it?
Maybe you would like to have a power that would help you do good in this world. Or maybe you would like to have a power in an area that you find lacking within yourself. For example: perhaps you are having trouble in math; a superpower that might help with instant number recognition and formulas might come in handy.

Kids are spending more and more time on computers and cell phones.
For most kids, these devices offer a fun and fast way to keep in contact with friends and family. Some, however, use e-mail, text messages, social networks, such as Facebook, to bully their peers.
This is the video we watched in class and we reflected upon it altogether.
Now, I would like you to watch it with your parents and reflect with them on this issue which is affecting society more and more.
Thank you.
