Swimming with Year 4

Every Thursday Year 4 have put on their swimming hats, swimwear and goggles, then we have taken the short journey to Fareham Leisure Centre by coach.

We have been split into three groups and taken part in a swimming lesson each week. Some of us have been learned to swim the width of the pool with a float, others have swum unaided, some have mastered a new swimming stroke and others have practised log rolls.  Whatever our learning we have all enjoyed the weeks and enjoyed watching each other grow in our skills but also our confidence.

It has been wonderful to see how well the children have supported each other. Swimming teachers from Fareham commented on how supportive and encouraging the children are of each other.

Swimming is such an important life skill, particularly living in a coastal location. Our learning about water safety has given the children a good understanding of how to stay safe both near the sea and also at a swimming pool.

Time Lapse

During todays session we looked at some time lapse videos on You Tube.

We then used this as inspiration to create our own time lapse videos, working in pairs.

QR Codes


We went on a QR Code hunt this week. We found one on a display board and scanned it using an app on the iPads. We found that this took us to Asda's advert which was banned. 

Inspired, we created our own QR codes using a website.


Manga

We learnt about Manga and watched a clip of Ponyo.




We learnt that manga is drawn by hand and make up for  40% of all publications sold in Japan!


This week Digital Leaders played with 2DIY and created their own games.

Some of us made platform games.

iPads


Digital Leaders started off their session today by looking at the website Newsround and we watched some clips about technology:

We then played some of the apps on the iPads, refreshing how to open apps within folders, change between apps and swipe them away.
