Our first try with the laptops

Today P2/3 ventured up to the ICT Suite to use the laptops. There was much excitement, as for many this was their first time.

Yesterday they were split into 5 groups, each group focusing on researching information for 1 food group. They then wrote this up in their own words and today we were going to learn how to put this into a word document!

The whole class worked so well to ensure that they were able to listen to the instructions clearly – there were a lot of new words and actions introduced today. Everybody was able to open a word document, use capital letters, spaces and full stops and change to a new line. Some were even able to look at changing the font of their text and it’s size. At the end of their session we looked at saving our document in our very own folder on the school network.

Considering this was their first trip to the ICT Suite they did a fantastic job and worked well on ensuring that they were not interrupting the classes next door. A lot of learning took place today and I’m very proud of what they have all been able to achieve – well done to all in P2/3!

Honorary teacher for the session

Today in P2/3 we had an honorary teacher taking part of the maths group who were discussing time. A pupil was away last week and missed some key details and as a class we nominated a pupil to present what they had been learning in the previous week.

 

She was able to explain the differences and key features of both an analogue and digital clock and how we can show o’clock and half past using the two methods. She than explained how to complete the key pages that they missed in their activity book.

 

What a super job she did, a potential teacher for the future! We all look forward to having more opportunities to be an honorary teacher in the future.
