Y1 & Y2 Carousel

Posted by siddalprimary on Mar-10-2016

In our carousel groups the children have been using Microsoft Paint to draw their portraits.  They found using some of the tools a bit tricky but after lots of practice they mastered the tools that some of the children had not used before. Using Microsoft Word they will use the keyboard to write about themselves finding out where the letters are on the keyboard.

Here are some of their portraits.

Posted by siddalprimary on Feb-8-2016

In our carousel sessions we used the Photo Booth app on the iPads to take photographs around the school grounds.  We used the different tools to manipulate our images and we were amazed at our finished products!

Take a look at some of our work.  Can you see the animal hiding in one of our images?

“I was impressed with my finished images, couldn’t believe the transformations!”  Georgie Y4

” I enjoyed using Photo Booth because I had the opportunity of going outside to take photographs and using the different tools to change them”  Keenan Y3

Using Photo Booth

Posted by siddalprimary on Dec-7-2015

Y3 & Y4 children used the Photo Booth app on the iPads to take photographs around the school grounds. We had lots of fun using the different tools to change the effects of our photographs. Mrs Godwin showed us how to upload the images using USB cables onto the computers.

We used Microsoft Publisher to design a photographic booklet.

Here are some of our amazing photographs.
