Chapter 1 of the novel GONE is performed by the Awesome 1's...

The Awesome 1's had their school assembly performance just recently. Their items were the song 'Adiemus' by Karl Jenkins and Chapter One of the teen novel GONE by Michael Grant. Room 1 have read the first book in the series in class. The Raptors reading group were given the task of rewriting chapter one of the novel as a play. They took on the challenge, working independently first, then sharing their scripts and creating a final version - great team work! The Raptors reading group then assigned roles and started practicing the play. Meanwhile, the Vipers, Raiders and Vikings reading groups set about filming the nuclear power station disaster which is set halfway through the novel.

The play and film were a big hit and the school enjoyed watching the talented students. They have done a great job and should be proud of themselves. The class have also read the other books in the series of their own steam, written emails to the author and searched for any possibility of a TV series or upcoming movie. Here are the final products - enjoy!

Oh, and there is a rumor that Chapters 2 and 3 may hit the Carlton School stage very soon or the epic battle between Sam and Caine...keep reading bloggers!

Student Blogging Challenge -Week 1 - Introductions

The Awesome 1's have decided to enter the Student Blogging Challenge 2013 (September) as a class and as individuals bloggers. This is our first effort using blabberize to introduce ourselves. Shiloh and Corey spoke and used Mr. Sager's wonderfully handsome face to introduce the class. We hope you enjoy it and please feel free to read our our page and comment.

Awesome 1's perform well at the school cross country

The sky darkened and the winds picked up as the participants for the 2013 Carlton School Cross Country gathered behind their house flags. Anticipation and nervousness (with a touch of confidence) were the thoughts and feelings of the day.

This was the first time the cross-country had been held at the school and the three age-related courses provided challenges for all involved. The 5 and 6 year old races started and provided excitement and close racing. The entire school and huge parent gallery enjoyed watching all age races. 

The senior races were fantastic and had close battles for the lead. The 10+ age group race saw Awesome 1's Shiloh winning the girls event while Tyrone took out the boys event. All the Awesome 1's performed well and had a great time (even if we did run a little over 3pm!)
