How I spent some time today. Water rockets in the rain.
The Biggies had a bit of fun thinking about what that would do if they were good or bad rulers. Making graphics with layers, transparency, copyright free images, clip art an their own photos.
On April Fool’s day a pupil said to me, do you know we have been calling you Mr Johnathan all day. I had wondered why they were using my name so much! Need to get my ears tested.
My class have been working very independently on writing, recording & editing a podcast episode, published on glowblogs of course.
My Class had a lot of fun and a little maths with Balloon Car Racing. Here on the Banton Biggies’ Blog:

My class had a team in the South of Scotland heats of the First Lego League challenge on Thursday, very proud

I had a busy first week back after spring break, Robots, butterflies & teacakes:
Highlights of the week 23 Apr 2021
Episode 4 of the Banton Biggies Podcast is out now. Scripted & recorded by pupils in their home and edited together by the children in school all in less than a week.https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/bbpod/2021/03/09/bbp-episode-4/
I’d avoided doing this earlier in lockdown ’cause I though it might be tricky. Turned out easier to organise than if I was in class. Even minimal supervision of the edit in school today.
Beautiful sky over @Banton_pr this morn. A warning?
According to my on this day page (thanks again @cogdog) last year was end of term. I don’t think this year will feature as much “stuff to touch”
Just had a lovely last day of term.
