Diggable Technology in the Pine Room.

This week we are highlighting Diggable Technology in School , this also ties in with Article 17 of the UNCRC which states all children and young people should be able to access information, particularly from the media.  Just now we are using technology every Wednesday to access school information via Teams for Assemblies, and we also get to see our friends in other classes on the big screen – Well done Mr Campbell, we think you should get a Diggable Technology Certificate next week!!!

In the Pine Room our favourite pieces of Technology are our AAC Devices, we use it to communicate in different ways, telling the Pine Ladies how we are feeling or making choices.

During Morning Group we are effective contributors and communicate our news to each other using our Big Macks.

Now at home how do you use your technology – do you listen to music on a phone, watch movies on an iPad, skype family members on your computer? Bring in some photos please from our information wall.

We have been successful learners in Science and taken our knowledge outdoors and planted our lettuce, spinach and some onions – in amongst our flowers!!!

In Social Studies we were working on SDG 17, sustainability and being part of a team.
