My first experience with using the internet came about because the Principal I had at the time insisted on the one computer the school owned being given to a male teacher. I had no idea abut computers but took myself off to a holiday course and came back after the holidays and insisted I have the computer for some of the time in my classroom. That was many years ago and now I can't imagine ever being without access to the internet.
For Rumours I would base my sentence on the Year 5 History curriculum and some English. Peter Lalor encouraged gold miners to resist licence fees. I would change part of his name (noun), gold (adjective) and encouraged (verb) #cserTask4
