.

After arriving back in school at 7pm, the children had a play in the school grounds before having a snack. As it was getting dark, they then went on to the school balcony to look at the stars through a telescope and the ‘Star Walk’ app on the iPads.

.

They then Skyped Elm Park Primary School in New Zealand where it was 9.30am on Friday morning! The boys in New Zealand performed the school Haka and the girls performed a traditional song and dance called the Poi Dance. The pupils then chatted and compared life on the other side of the world.

.

Unfortunately, due to problems with Skype, our pupils were not able to perform a Morris Dance andpiece of drama that they had prepared, but we will be sending them a video of this performance this week

Today in Computing lessons in Year 1, the pupils started the next unit of work…’We are Photographers’.

Having looked at the different equipment that is available for taking photos such as cameras, phones, tablets and laptops the children then looked at the features of a good photograph. They looked at positioning, focus, angles, lighting and focal points. They then looked at some photos of mini beasts that they had taken last week and decided which were the good features and how they could be improved.

They then used the iPads to carefully take a selection of photos including an object and one of their friends. They were encouraged to take as many as possible.

With their friends they then discussed which photo was their favourite and why before showing it on the interactive whiteboard using the ‘Reflector’ app.

Next week we will look at selecting their favourites, deleting those that they don’t like and then move on to editing them.

All of the following were taken by the children (apart from the class photos). As you can see, they have really made an excellent start.
