Referencing- The MACC way!

When studying and presenting what we have learned, there are ways of finding out new information. This information then needs to referencing so that the information is verified by a teacher or another student

Our school librarian, Mrs. Turner, took some time to show us how to use the school reference generator. This is accessed through our school library website called "Oasis". To find Oasis, go to the student portal where it is represented by a big "O". 

Click on the link and it will open up this website: 

This website will allow access to finding books and resources that will help your studies, which you can book or re-borrow online. To find the referencing generator, look down in the bottom right-hand corner of the page for this information: 

Click on the link to go directly to the website. 

There are also some handy resources for research using the Campbelltown library. 

The generator that is needed is the green section titled "Middle School Bibliography". It will take you to the home page that looks like this: 

Choose the appropriate resource generator for the resource that is being used. The generator gives an example of what is needed to place in each box. 

This is a skill that is needed in High School and then into further study. Referencing is also a skill that is highly valued by teachers as it shows that students have taken the time to research their work carefully and learned something new about a subject. 

How will you use referencing in the future? What have you learned referencing?

Creating and making with textiles

This term, we have been looking at using textiles as a medium for creativity. Using wool or natural fibres to create something wearable is an ancient art. Some of the best memories that I have, when growing up was of creating felt and dyeing fabrics. This was the inspiration for the project for my Creativity project. After approaching our agricultural department for some raw alpaca fleece, the first step was to was this very dirty fleece. This was dirty, but a lot of fun! After it had dried, we dyed the wool and then felted it. The felting process takes a lot of work, hot water and soap. It requires the wool to be placed into a tea towel after it was carded to get rid of the rest of the dirt. There was a lot of enthusiasm to have a go. Rubber gloves were essential to protect little hands! This took much longer than anticipated so we have used purchased felt to make our creations The next step was to learn to sew using a needle and thread. To help this pro
