Through the last two weeks our lessons have utilised a Just Dance video on YouTube. The children have been very keen to bust their moves to a backing track from the Black Eyed Peas. Indeed anyone passing through the small hall, adult or child, has been first amused and then impressed before being encouraged to join in.
After a few practices in each lesson, the children have videoed themselves. This enables them to watch back their performances in class and reflect, self-evaluate and improve upon their learning, thus demonstrating one of the school’s co-operative values, self-responsibility.
In other news, next week’s Computing lesson will be getting hands on with coding practical toys, including the school’s brand new Code-a-Pillar. Let’s see how long it takes for us to create an algorithm for the BeeBots to dance!
