We are so proud of all the work done by our pupils for Safer Internet Day 2022! They enjoyed a huge variety of activities – special wrist bands, videos, raps, songs, role plays, PowerPoint presentations, interactive games online, posters, special worksheets – the list is endless! Everyone learned the best ways to protect themselves online, how to behave appropriately when online and most importantly what action to take when you don’t feel safe online.
In this video, our very own Student Council put together their top tips for Internet Safety as well as a brilliant role play by The Birch Classroom.
Augmented Reality – Senior Classes
Our senior students have been trying out Augmented Reality this term. Students have been working with the App ‘Quiver’ on our school iPads. Using the wonder of Augmented Reality (AR), the girls brought their art works to life!
This term the Birch Classroom (5th class) enjoyed using a Merge Cube and Augmented Reality to study some Science and STEM activities. They created a Merge Cube out of cardboard. A Merge Cube allows you to hold digital 3D objects, enabling an entirely new way to learn and interact with the digital world. The Merge Cube works with Merge EDU software, helping students learn with 3D objects and simulations they can touch, hold and interact with.
Using the ‘Halo’ App, the Birch Classroom (5th class) recorded positive affirmation videos.
5th class overlaid their videos to pictures on their classroom wall.
Now, when the girls hold an iPad up to the pictures, the pictures come to life with their positive video messages. This was 5th class first experience with Augmented Reality and they really enjoyed it.
