A literacy lesson

After listening to the story Spot’s Playtime, these Year 2 children drew a picture about their own favourite toy and wrote a sentence to describe it. During the second session together, the children showed their pictures to their peers, read out their sentence and took a photo of their drawings using a digital camera.

These photos were inserted in PhotoStory and for the third session, they were recorded reading out their sentences. The end result is a short movie with the pupils describing their favourite toys.     Click on Our Toys to view this movie.

eLearning and having fun

In this Year 2 class,  children were introduced to the topic Fruit through a video song found on youtube.  Then, they drew their favourite fruit on the Interactive Whiteboard and wrote a short sentence using the special pens provided.

During another session, the pupils were recorded reading their respective sentences and this was then inserted in PPT to create a PPS with the children’s work.  Click on Fruit Yr2 Ms Bonett to view the children’s work.

All Year 5 and Year 6 pupils were introduced to blogs this year by the school’s eLearning Teacher.  Pupils were shown how to upload their own writings on to the Primary School Blog found on the Skola Portal (http://skola.edu.mt/).  They were also shown how to search for pictures related to their writings and then to insert them in their posts.  The aim of the sessions was to familiarise children to blogging and to  engage them in creative writing in a more innovative way.
