The Week It Was

A normal school week.
Well as normal as you can at BBI.
The start of all our period 5 activities. Bring on the out of class time activities.
One main highlight was Mr Barrow deconstructing Mrs Mitchell's camp bag. He had a lot of very interesting clothes. I hope that you were listening and have everything ready for camp.

Have a look if you want to see where your son or daughter is heading.

A look into Week 4

Another busy has passed by in Team B with lots of learning happening in so many different ways.
Check out our slide show for the week. See us working on Statistics doing an M&M investigation, have a look at our swimming safety programme at Lloyd Elsmore to prepre us for camp. Habits of Mind teach us about our thinking as we think about knowing what to do and how to behave when we don't have the answer. School swimming sports was a fantastic day and we also spent time setting up our e-portfolios using KnowledgeNet. Whew! We sure did have a busy week!!!!

Week 1-3, 2008!

Week 1-3

Welcome to Team B! We have a very busy few weeks getting to know each other
in our classes and our team. Team B is made up of four classes, Room 5 with
Mrs Gail Mitchell, Room 6 with Miss Louise Kennedy, Room 7 with Miss Rachel
Taylor and Room 8 with Mr Mark Barrow.

We are sure you have already visited the Team B Wikispace:

Where you will have seen our term's plan, reminders and homework for each

We have been focusing on The Brain: The World Inside My Head. Ask your child
about the brain as we are confident they will be able to tell you atleast
one interesting thing they have learnt about the structure and function of
parts of the brain and memory devices. Ask them what a mnemonic is, you will
be impressed!

It was great to meet so many parents at the Meet the Teacher evening in Week
2 and we thank all of the parents who have offered to help out on our
swimming safety trips and at camp. We look forward to seeing you at the camp
meeting, which is yet to be announced.

Keep logging on to see what wonderful, exciting things we are doing in our
team. We aim to update this blog weekly with any pictures we have taken so
save it to your favourites now for easy access!

Have a great week
Team B teachers

Week 10

Week 10 has been a fun week for everyone in Team B. Christmas is near with carols playing in the morning, Christmas trees decorating our classrooms and just the general happiness in the air!

Team B students along with all the other Year 7 students at BBI had a fun day out at Willow Park on Tuesday. There were activities galore from petanque to bouncy castles to water slides and sponge fights. The weather held out for us and we ended the day with a well earned ice-block before our walk back to school. A big thank you to all the parents who helped us make this day possible!

Nearing the end of the week we have been practicing for our big prize giving assembly next Wednesday. This is sure to be a great occasion and a great end to what has been a wonderful year.

Keep up the enthusiasm Team B!
