Looking Up at Two Oaks, I took the class down to the woods today to gather words, sketch and play a game or two. The pupils really took to sitting quietly drawing the bare trees.
Repost: Water rockets in the rain.
How I spent some time today. Water rockets in the rain.
The Biggies spent some time this morning building rockets, we gave them a test in the rain this afternoon. Great Camera Work Hollie! The slo-mo voices in the class sound strange! pic.twitter.com/IiXBLzXkKd

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.
Out now Episode 5 of the Banton Biggies Podcast. Written, recorded, edited and published by the pupils in p6-7https://t.co/2rpeKtQnCS

My Class had a lot of fun and a little maths with Balloon Car Racing. Here on the Banton Biggies’ Blog:

I had a busy first week back after spring break, Robots, butterflies & teacakes:
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.
