We are a year five class learning in Bowen in sunny North Queensland. Our town is famous for its yummy mangoes which we eat in the summer months and our beautiful beaches. Bowen is just north of Airlie Beach and approximately 40km from the Great Barrier Reef. Fishing is very popular here! Bowen has its very own Fishing Classic which runs in September each year. Farming is very big in Bowen and we grow tomoatoes, capsicums, beans, pumpkins, chillis, eggplants, watermelons, corn and much more. Mining plays a huge part in our community also as many of our parents work at the local coal mines, railway and coal port.
We started our blog last year as a way to learn from and with classes all around the world. Through our journey so far we have met some amazing teachers and classes. They continue to inspire us in our daily work.
Our blog contains information about our learning and links to fantastic blogs, educational videos and learning programs. It is also the gateway to our Kidblog accounts which we have started this year. You will notice that we don’t include photos of our students as this is our State Education Policy. We do however post work samples so we can show our visitors the great work 5SK is doing in class.
We are very excited to participate in our very first Edublogs and Quadblogging challenge this year.
