February 5, 2013: Class four become tourist advisors
Following on from the work we did last week " what is Nottingham famous for?" The children have realised there are numerous places to visit in Nottingham. The children have been researching famous places in the city. They have organised themselves into teams who have become mini tourist boards. Together they are devising an action plan how they could encourage people to come and visit Nottingham. I am looking forward to see what the next step will be :-) Posted with Blogsy

October 6, 2012: Africa Links
...that a few years ago Mrs. Griffiths and Mrs. Ward travelled to Africa to meet a group of teachers at a local school? They travelled there to see how children in Tanzania were educated. Their adventures were recorded in a special section of the school website, where you can read their daily diaries, watch the video and listen to audio they recorded, and see lots of the photos they took.

October 4, 2011: What can you trust?
This week the upper school children have learnt another important Internet Safety message; you cannot believe everything you read on the Internet. On Monday class 3 researched about Boilerplate, the great Victorian Robot, whilst class 4 researched about the endangered Mountain Walrus. On Tuesday class 5 researched the endangered Tree Octopus. It was fascinating watching the children undertake their research. Most of the classes just read the information (and looked at the photoshopped images) and wrote about it without any thought. Hardly anyone questioned what they were reading. In fact, only Tor (in class 3) commented on whether robots did exist in the 19th century, whilst Jordan (in class 5) was unsure about an octopus living in a tree. It was only when the lessons were completed, and I reminded the class of what the 'R' in the SMART targets stood for (reliability) that they realised they had 'been had' and laughed. Hopefully it was a fun way to get a serious point across to them; Just because something is on the Internet it doesn't mean it's true. Check for alternative sources of the information.



May 27, 2011: Isle of Tune
It's half term, and here's a lovely website to keep you entertained creatively on a rainy day. "Isle of Tune" lets you create music by driving a car around a street. Just design the road, add sounds (objects by the side of the road) and listen to your creations.
