Introducing "Epic Food Tech: Yr7.4

Our very first class 19th July 2013
This is our very first class and therefore first group sourced blog post.
The first context area we studied for semester one was Wood Technology and now we are looking forward to Food Technology!

Today in Sydney it is raining.  We bought all our bags in the classroom and Mrs James asked us to place all tables and desks to the sides of the classrooms and find a spot with our tablets.
She thought it funny that we automatically sat in rows and faced the front- so she took a picture!  That is us at the top of the post. When Mrs James asked us why we sat in this format we said "That's what primary school does to you" and "won't we get in trouble if we move?" REALLY?  She said.  Then Mrs James asked us to download the PICSAY app from the playstore (we use Android tablets) and take a photo in groups of 2-4.  She asked us to layer stickers to the photo and add our first names only as she would love to know our names quickly. We then emailed her our group photos. 

Next we wrote this post as a class. These are our views.
