Thinglink Interactive Map

For the first few weeks of term, the Primary 7s have been working hard, finding out about ‘Places that make us happy’ in the South Mainland. They used this learning to make an interactive map and this was shared today during the Shetland Health and Wellbeing week. It has been lovely to hear about everyone’s favourite places, stories and activities.

Please have a look and we hope that you enjoy it.

Here is the link for the finished map. https://www.thinglink.com/scene/1444059753809444865

The introduction and instruction for what to do is on the map.
Click on the white microphone first and it will explain everything.

There are then 5 types of tags
Green – wildlife
White – places
Red – stories
Yellow – history
Blue – activities.

If you click on a tag the audio will come up. There are also photos / written descriptions and most of the tags have a video link at the bottom of the script.

Enjoy 🙂

Stop Motion Animation

The Primary 7 bairns have been developing their digital skills using Stop Motion animation. They have worked so imaginatively and enthusiastically on their Halloween creations, learning lots of tricks for effectively adding video and sound.

The final video versions will follow. I hope they don’t scare you too much!!!

 

Last STEM

Today we had our last STEM  session. Emma Chittick was really pleased with all the skills that the class demonstrated, not just ICT skills, but cooperation and helping each other too.

Cole said “It was fun, going around the pretend city. It was also fun controlling the robots and telling them what to.”

Archie said “It was good.  I most enjoyed programming the robots.”

Christie said “I loved the way you could do the task in your own way.”

Joanna said “ It was fun and it could make people more aware about all the different things you can do with screens.”

Emmy said “It was to learn about the driverless cars and the advantages and disadvantages of them.”

Faith “It was fun to programme your  own robot.”
