It was great to see everyone fresh after the holiday.  Today we spoke about ambition, goals and setting yourself high standards. This will be a theme all through this week and is also today's blog post. What do you want to achieve and why?

Spellings
You can also now set your own spelling goal each week. Each week you are able to set 5 spellings that you wish to learn. I will be setting 5 and you can choose the next 5 which a partner will test you on, remember the following:
Choose words that you need to know, not words you already know. Stretch your vocabulary. These words should also be useful and something that you can use now.

Typhoon Koppu

9/14/2009

Last night was my very first Typhoon in Hong Kong, although we were almost 200 km away from Typhoon Koppu at it's closest it was possible to feel the incredible power of the storm here. As the map below shows we were still potentially going to have a lot of rain around 9.00 this morning, but it missed Hong Kong Island. You can still watch the animated maps here to track the rain clouds. Or look at more information here from the Hong Kong Observatory.

This is a good opportunity for you to do an extra spelling activity found in the front of your spelling book. I will collect them tomorrow morning. You need to do one of these each evening.

I left my spellings at school, could someone send me a copy of the spelling list via contact or first class and I will put them up onto the web site as soon as I can.

You could also get somethings done for your community. You can work on your stixyboard here.

To help you talk with others I have opened a chat feature for a short time on the website, look above for chat. You must change your name to your first name when you enter the chat room. The chat room is protected by a password. This is our normal class password that we use for other sites such as bubbl.us.

I mentioned yesterday about taking photos of things that you see happening in and around Hong Kong. Here are mine from last nights storm.
