FDLT Y1 Leicester Making and manipulating images.
17th March 2016
Year One FDLT students at Leicester exploring ice balloons in their first science session.
Using a range of materials from salt to sand; tools including drills and thermometers and different temperatures of water students explored the ice structure by testing out their own questions and ideas.
It was a great way to begin to reflect on teaching science in a fun and engaging way. We also considered how the exploration could be used to explain observations in the world around us and as starting point for a range of cross curricular topics.

Exploring art and digital technology 11th March 2015
In this session the Y1 Oadby students made collages, manipulated the images in the apps ‘Rollworld’ and ‘Fragment’ and then chose an image from each exploration to put in a sequence the app ‘Visual Poet’. They also introduced me to the apps ‘Perculator’ and ‘Photobooth’.
Newton Field Centre 2nd June 2014
On Monday 2nd June The FDLT Y1 Oadby group spent the day at Newton Field Centre, with Georgina Hand, Ken Bland and Jean Edwards, exploring the curriculum and learning in the field centre environment.
They made a river profile by measuring from bank to bank; they timed the flow of the river in the riffle and in the pool and they were shown how to take a kick sample from the river bed.
They sorted the creatures they found in the sample by number of legs and looked more closely at these using a magnifier and the Big Magnify app on the IPad.
Georgina talked to them about how the river creatures can reflect the health of the river.
After lunch we went for a walk to see the medieval fishpond and the dovecote that provided food for the manor house of the Tresham family many centuries ago.
The group tool photos and on our return they used the VisualPoet app to choose three photos and then caption them. You can read more about how to use the app here – http://mypad.northampton.ac.uk/appsforlearningandteaching/
Here are some of the sequences the group made.
