Quadblogging: September – December

Students on Frole Island love sharing and learning with classes around the world. We are Quad buddies with 3 other classes.

**Year 6 Queens Road Primary**
**Westcliff Primary School**
**Mr Schifeling’s Class**

All classes originally found out about quadblogging from Mr Mitchell.

The QuadBlogging concept: four blogging classes come together and learn about one another one week at a time. The alliance (group of friends) will help each class increase their readership while flattening their classroom walls and learning about the wonderful world we live in.

Frole Island are on school holidays at the moment but have already visited Queens Road Primary and Westcliff Primary. This week, it is our turn to host our Quadblogging buddies.

Have a look around our class blog. This is our first year blogging and we are very proud of what we have achieved so far. You don’t have to leave a comment on this post – find one that you’re interested in!

Thanks for stopping by!

Surprise!!

It all started with 100 Word Narratives…

Miss Fraser told us that we would be participating in a project with UPPS where they would write the first 100 words of a story and we would have to complete them using only 100 words! We thought it would be easier to write the first 100 words and we found that finishing the stories was harder than we expected.

Our stories are below. The endings that we wrote are in red text.

We completed our stories and at around 12:30, Miss Fraser disappeared from the classroom. We knew we had a surprise coming…

We heard them coming before we saw them…

Suddenly, 52 UPPS students filled our classroom!

We read our stories together in small groups and then took everyone on a tour of the school. The lunch bell had gone so we headed to the gym and played a couple of games together. First we played Penguin Olympics and then we played Golden Child. It was a lot of fun.

After lunch, UPPS stayed and watched our dress rehearsal of our school production – Wiping Out Waste! Sam was the main character and Jo, Bella and Jaxon were also in the main cast.

We had such a great time with our new friends and loved having the opportunity to meet our blogging buddies in person.

** Big thanks to Miss Crowther and MRS Placek for their hard work in organising the secret excursion! **

Did the 100 Word Narratives end up the way you thought they would? How would you end them instead? What was your favourite part of the surprise?
