Group Activity

Group activity usually means playing games at camp, but these days it is expanding beyond anyone's expectations. "Occupy Wall Street" is a recent example, fired up by Facebook Group Activity. Another interesting one is at UKEdChat on Twitter. Every Thursday evening between 8 and 9 pm teachers from around UK meet on-line to discuss subjects of interest in their profession, for example, whether homework has any value, whether to allow mobiles in the classroom etc. What is your group doing today? Sometimes I find doing things alone is preferable to doing them in a group, like bird-watching or taking photos, but it is just my opinion.
Well, finally Gaddafi has left us, courtesy of some group activity in Libya. It was a long time coming! I remember an expert commenter six months ago saying it would all be over in two weeks. How wrong he was!

Ironic that we are just completing a WWII topic with our Year 6s which, tomorrow, will be rounded off by a VE day party.

I think I have now got to the stage where I can recognise your photographs even if they were not within the context of your blog. It is the framing (figurative not literal) that does it : no group could ever come up with such uniqueness.
