In the process of making the song, we decided to choose a charity for all the money made from the project to go to. After doing some research, we decided on the Save the Children charity. The children felt Christmas is a special time for children and wanted to make sure that every child can enjoy Christmas in a safe environment.
Everything with the project was created on an iPad, the artwork, song and video!
You can watch the video here and then download the song to try and help us get in the charts!
Thank you and have a wonderful Christmas!
Last week in Literacy the Barn Owls have been using the iPad app ThingLink to help them retell the story of Lost and Found. First we put a collage of pictures together from the story using the app Pic Collage and then added them into the app ThingLink. Next, in our groups, we decided which part of the story we would each retell and practised what we would say with our partners and Miss Woodnett. Finally we recorded our videos and linked them to the pictures by uploading the videos onto ThingLink. On Monday we are going to watch our videos back and talk about all the things we did fantastically and how we could improve our retelling next time!

This week in literacy the Barn Owls have been continuing our work on ‘The Dark’. In the story Lazslo is afraid of the dark, so we have been discussing our fears in partners and as a class. We have been using the app ThingLink to talk about our fears. First we drew a picture of our fear, then took a photo of them and added them into the app Pic Collage before adding them into ThingLink. Afterward we recorded each other talking about our fears and then linked the videos to our pictures. After practising our sentences orally on the videos, we watched them back to see how we could improve them. Finally we wrote our sentences about our fears in our literacy books.
Today Year 1 used the iPads to become superheroes flying through the sky. They discussed words to describe what a Superhero needs to be and what they can do to become a superhero. This is what they created –
This week we will be paying our respects to all the brave soldiers over the years who have died in different wars for our country. We would love children, parents and family members to contribute to our online Remembrance Day wall to make our thoughts and prayers more personal. Please share details or pictures of any family members we need to remember this week. These will be shared and discussed with children this week, thank you!
