Early Years Glow: Did you know?
The Early Years team at Education Scotland have updated and ‘revamped’ the National Early Years Glow site!
It provides a wonderful wealth of Early Years information, including direct links to our blog, Early Years resources and other places to visit within Glow to help your learning and teaching.
There are also opportunities to take part in up to the minute discussions.
Please come and join us and tell us what you think. Will it enhance your learning and teaching? Is there anything else you would like us to add?
We are also creating an exciting programme of events for Glow TV so watch this space!
Purple Mash brings you a selection of online creativity tools to support and inspire young children.
The following resources from Purple Mash are available through Glow.
2Publish is a program which allows pupils to create simple layouts using text and drawings. A selection of templates, word banks and images are available to use.
2Design & Make
Design and make 3D models. Select from a range of templates or create your own design. As you work watch the changes take effect on a 3D preview of your model. Customise your model with the painting tools then print it out to fold and stick it together to complete your model.
Get started with simple frame animation to develop an understanding of sequences and processes. Use the ‘onion skinning’ facility to ensure smooth transition from one frame to another when you play your film.
