To title this post a “Cold Case” couldn’t be more appropriate, as this funny yet educational video (see below) was made last year for the year 5 teachers to assist with their lessons on Patrick Logan. Mr Russell, our library media specialist, was extremely pleased that even though some of the teachers who featured in the video had moved to other year levels and new staff had come in, they still wanted to utilise this resource. He really enjoyed getting to edit his old video with the new staff members’ names, and he especially liked it when the year 5 students rushed up to him asking if he was the ‘detective’ who worked for ‘Horrible Hunter’ and the other year 5 teachers. (Apologies to the teachers – let’s hope those names don’t stick!) Most of all he loved hearing feedback about how engaged the boys have been in the lessons.
Mr Russell says that ‘it would be wonderful to be asked to make some more learning resources for the staff here at BGS this year’. With a library media officer soon to join the team, he will even have some assistance. So teachers, send Mr Russell more of these creative curriculum challenges!
