We are looking for parents to help contribute to our school digital remembrance wall so we can share memories of people close to us who have lost their lives in past wars.
All you need to do is double click anywhere on the wall, add the name of the fallen soldier along with any information including pictures or web links.
We are hoping this will demonstrate to the children how important the day is and make it more personal to them.
Using the apps – Aurasma, Tellagami Edu and iMovie, Class 5B have created an interactive reading display.
To see how our display works watch the video below -
This week Year 5 have been looking at how they can use their bodies to make a bridge shape. They then had a go at putting their bridge shapes in to a sequence.
Today, Mr Parkinson’s Year 5 group were learning all about Polar Bears. During the research we discovered stories about two polar bears – Yupi and Arturo. Both these polar bears live in South America where the weather and other conditions are harmful to them.
Once we had researched different websites, including saveyupi.com, we did some shared writing using as many Alan Peat and Mat Sullivan’s Exciting Sentences as possible.
Using our writing, we created a video to share our ideas with as many people as possible. We used the app Doink Greenscreen and also chose music and images to creative an emotive atmosphere.
We will be writing a lot over the next few weeks about this topic so please come back and comment on our work!
Sometimes I wonder why I was stupid enough to climb to the top of a tree just to get a ball. I must have been in this coma for about a month now. My parents were distraught but my brother was traumatised through coming to the hospital every day . I could tell all this because I could still hear everything, even though I could not move. I could also smell the chocolate my brother teased me with. It’s both distressing and terrifying being unable to see their faces. The weeks passed by slowly and suddenly I could see again. My Family were overjoyed and I was soooo relieved.
