Using Scratch App on the Ipads
P5P really enjoyed using the Class Set of Ipads to explore a new App, ” Scratch”. Working in pairs, the children were able to create scenes with characters, before programming them to follow various commands. Everyone agreed that this was a very useful App and P5P are already looking forward to having another go at ” Scratch”.
In November, P5P enjoyed three lessons with P5M from Presentation PS. The first two of these lessons were based upon Izak9, a Maths cube, which generates Problem Solving activities. To successfully complete all the Problems, the children had to work really hard together in their Groups. Those who finished first were usually those who worked best as a team. It was marvellous for P5P to meet new friends and share their Numeracy Learning experiences together. As you can see from the pics below, every child wore a joint Hart/Presentation T-Shirt, although a lot of these had to be washed after the children had fun together on the mucky Adventure Trail at Hart Memorial!!
More Shared Education
For our third Shared Education lesson, both classes took time to explore the lives of children in different parts of the World. Our study concentrated upon children in war torn Syria. Many Syrian children were homeless after fighting in their cities and many more hadn’t eaten for days. All of the children appreciated learning about children, who are not as fortunate as themselves. It was great to see each other again and P5P and P5M are already looking forward to meeting up for the fourth time on 26th February, 2018!
