Afrikaans blog project (by Insaaf Levy - Gr 6KJ Class Captain)

We really enjoyed this project because we got to watch an Afrikaans movie (Hoofmeisie), in class, that was very funny. It had many jokes that made the class laugh. It also had two scenes that made the Grade 6s sigh and gasp!

The English Department recently brought Web 2.0 technology to the classroom by adapting their reading project from a traditional book log to a book blog. Grade 10 students worked in groups of three to blog about their favourite books by discussing three main areas, namely character, plot and theme. To do this, students posted on the school intranet which is built on SharePoint 2010 technology.
