hello from Primary 6/7,
This week we have explored I.C.T and how it can support our learning both in and out of the classroom. We have been enjoying using Sketch Nation and designed our own games, we have learned how to create players using moving images and even adapt our games so we star as the players in our games.
We are also beginning to explore Glow and the different features we can use in Microsoft 365, in the coming weeks we will learn how to create Sways, Microsoft Teams and use the class notebook both in class and for homework. We can see the benefits of being literate in technology plus it’s great fun!
As part of our homework we were taking part in a maths challenge on Sumdog, it’s great to see at the end of each block, the progress we have made and which areas we need to work on. Miss Jackson was happy that Primary 6/7 made it into the top teens of the North Lanarkshire leaderboard, great achievement considering we didn’t enter the challenge until quite late on.
As well as I.C.T, we have been looking at another French artist, Renoir. We have enjoyed learning about this impressionist and his works of art. As oil pastels and paint were his preferred medium, we have been using these to create a self portrait of the artist himself. We will update later in the week with some of our artwork.
