We didn’t have a full week but the Biggies have had a creative one.
On Tuesday afternoon we went on a tiktok photowalk round the playground. We tried out some of the techniques we have been learning from Dave’s Tiktok Photowalks site.
Later in the week we have been working on material to help the younger children in the school understand “Clever Never Goes”, a way of staying safe. The class were brilliant at working together, showing leadership, cooperation, act, problem solving and creative skills. Most of the class worked in video but one group used scratch.
We hope to publish the video and animation next week.
As usual the dens in the playground continue to develop and change:
Over the last couple of days we have been learning about Vedic squares.
We started by making a times table square and then working out the digital root of each answer to get a vedic square. When the experimented with the patterns made on the squares.
Next we repeated the square using numbers on our iPads. We used conditional highlighting to make each number a different colour. We took screenshots into pages and keynote to duplicate and make symmetrical patterns.
A couple of the class decided to animating the patterns, and then we all tried. There are a few more to be finished off next week.
A week ago we looked at the poem Sweetieraptors which as a lot of Scot’s words and is great fun. The biggies wrote their own verses, being careful to rhyme and follow the rhythm of the original.
We put together the movie to show our poems. Each pupil made a keynote slide to cary the text and used the green screen feature of iMovie to add that text onto of their movies. They then added the voice.
Everyone AirDropped their movies to Aaron who put them altogether into one longer video.
A while back the Biggies created some Christmas Art on their iPads for the NLC Christmas Art Competition. We had a Winner. But here are all our entries. The Class are getting really skilful at using the Brushes App for painting. Many show great understanding of layers and how to use them.
