Egyptian Gamis

In their recent ICT lesson, Chestnut class have been having some fun learning about a new ipad app called Telligami,

After researching an Egyptian topic and each writing their own speech, the children used the app to make an information report – also known as a GAMI.  Have a look at a selection of their creations in the video below. Each Gami has been researched, written and produced completely by the children.

Leave some comments please… Do you like the app? Have they done a good job? Did you learn anything new?

TLC Teamwork Challenge

In a recent LS lesson, the boys and girls from Chestnut class went to the outdoor TLC area for a team buildings exercise. Their challenge was ‘to cross the lava maze!’ Using a range of memory skills, trial and error, co-operation and risk taking, the children had to cross the maze and get to safety. After several attempts, the Chestnut children showed they had the necessary teamwork skills to find the correct route across and they successfully completed their task.

Solids, Liquids and Gases Video

For the first part of the term, Year 3 have been learning all about the States of Matter (solids, liquids & gases). To finish off the topic Chestnut class decided to produce a documentary programme all about the subject. They found it an engaging and creative way of demonstrating what they have learnt.

Have a watch and please let us know what you think. Have you learnt something new? Are you impressed with their knowledge? Can you think of any other facts we could have mentioned?
