Seeing you all dressed up in your finery last Wednesday was a real treat and I am sure it will have created lasting memories for your children. They have worked very hard this term and learnt many valuable technological s
kills. Taking photographs and making movies has been a hit and it was an absolute delight to see how this is translating across the curriculum. One example of this was the group of children outside during mathematics the other day taking pictures of perpendicular lines, angles and geometric shapes, then turning these into a movie with voice over showing their understanding of these terms. What a fabulous creative way to engage learners.

We have included the first place winners in each category of the photograph competition in today’s newsletter for your enjoyment. Our thanks to Stephen and Michelle Press from Lifeworks Studio who spent considerable time judging this competition and donated the prizes. The overall winner received a beautifully framed copy of his photo and all five winners will receive a free tutoring session with Stephen
here at school next term.

Keynote speakers presented future thinking for technology usage in schools and four two-hour workshops from a selection of sixteen on offer. Thank you to Mr Darian Schulz for his organisation and to the teachers who generously shared their classroom spaces.
