How we express ourselves

Sharing with buddies

Posted by year5

Today 5.1 shared a new game on the laptops with their buddies, 2SMD. We have learnt a new game called Admongo to build on advertising skills and techniques for our unit of inquiry. Teaching our buddies new skills was the cause of lots of smiles and a little frustration.

You will find this game on DING so ask your child to show and teach you how to play.

Great fun!!

How we express ourselves

Posted by year5

Yesterday Galaxy 5 began their inquiry into ways that people can express themselves, in particular looking at advertising and how different advertisements can influence opinions and choices.

A series of rotations, including print, television, jingles and billboard advertisements had our students thinking about design, colour, wording, images and target audiences and the message that was being relayed to the audience.

Throughout this unit of inquiry, Year 5 students will work with a client to design and produce an advertisement to promote the client’s product. They will have to develop and use many personal skills as they work in a small group to satisfy the needs and requirements of their client. This always proves challenging for some.

Year 5 teachers, educational assistants and single subject teachers are excited and looking forward to working with the students in developing this diverse range of skills.
