How To Catch a Porridge Thief!

My favourite topic this year was the Goldilocks crime scene we set up for Year One. Here is an article I have written for Innovate My School, sharing the topic.

There is an issue viewing the videos on iPad or iPhone due to unsupported Flash, so here is a link to the videos if you’re unable to view them:

Using Book Creator to create a WAGOLL text to support pupils in Y1

First post in a long time!

For today’s Literacy lesson, I prepared a pre-recorded version of my WAGOLL persuasive text in order that the group could access the text and ‘magpie’ vocabulary to use in their own writing.

I created the text using my iPad, importing screenshots of the WAGOLL text into a new book within the Book Creator app. Using the ‘Add a sound’ tool,  I then recorded myself reading the text and asking the children to identify the ‘wow words’. The children then recorded their responses.

iBooks made on Book Creator can now be exported as a video for publishing to YouTube.
