Developing Knowledge


Flashmeeting

  • “Video conferencing was an exciting new experience for the children (and the teachers!). It gave our able children a great opportunity to interact with the other pupils to share data, and develop their communication skills”. Melanie Sharpe HLTA


The video conference

George: “That was great – I really enjoyed it, and it was fun seeing all the other groups there at the same time. And meeting up this way, we have saved energy and haven’t made lots of waste carbon dioxide”


Celebration day

  • Each school made a presentation of their findings

  • It raised questions for the children

  • Each group evaluated the project:

    • What they enjoyed

    • Knowledge acquired

    • Improvements

    • Advice to others

Sam: it involves working with other people and

looking at creatures.

Maddy: I liked it because we got to find out about the

blue Damsel Flies
