NUTTY NEWS & THE CHOMP app

We've been using ideas from Andy Griffiths for our writing this term.  The last two weeks we've worked on 'Nutty News' stories.  It was quite tricky to do something a bit nutty, but still carefully tie our ideas into the main theme like character names had to indicate what the character was without necessarily saying it outright, but they still had to be a bit kookoo!

We had seen a class use the Chomp app for poetry so, after we came up with some initial ideas, we looked at the app CHOMP and saw what characters we could incorporate into our stories.  Some people worked in groups, others worked on their own.

When we felt our script had all the good elements of Andy g's nuttiness, we used CHOMP to record ourselves.

Our first one is the Year 7 & 8's : )

  19. Kia ora Room 8
    I really liked your Nutty news video and i will make sure that I keep in touch with your guys Nutty news videos as well . I like the piece of cake one I found that was very funny and how most of the kids used different accents . Maybe next time you could base it on a story like holes or even make up your own story.
    Kind regards Berlin From Owairaka:) :)
