Willkommen! This is the blog for Mr Curran's classes at Montrose Academy. It will be used for sharing and publishing our work, and as revision and homework tool.
Only I will be able to post on this blog, but pupils and others are welcome to add comments. Please note that to protect your privacy, as this site will be accessible on the internet, please only give your first name when adding a comment.
Here is a display of work of class 2E1 (2nd year German). Below is the task they were asked to complete.
"Write a short letter to our new German assistant Benjamin (in German). I will ask Benjamin to pick the best letter, and there will be a small prize. Must be handed in by 12th September. You must mention the following things:
Talk about what you like and don't like to do (hobbies)
One or two of your favourite things.
Where you live (describe the area you live in and your house/flat)
What you do in the different rooms in your house, how do you help at home?
Describe your bedroom."
Class 2E1 did a very good job today of recording their first podcast. They split into groups and made dialogues/radio interviews about what there is to do in Montrose....and here are the results! You will hear 5 groups in total (more may be added later, as we didn't have time to finish).
Our class has just started the topic of holidays, and we split into pairs/small groups on Monday to make a dialogue. Here are some that we recorded so far. This is our class' first attempt at podcasting.
Since this is the first time you have had the chance to visit the IT suite to see the new blog, I will spend some time guiding you through it. Here is what I have planned for today's lesson. 1. Look at the blog, what we can use it for, and look at examples of some of the other classes' work. 2. Talk about how we are going to use the blog/podcasting for the activity we started in class on Wednesday. 3. Work indiviually to post a message on the blog and complete the revision activity with a partner.
