Bringing History Alive


It was great to be back at Wyke Regis Federation Primary School yesterday and working with a different Year 6 class (pictures above). We covered the same lesson as already blogged about here. As is always the case though with great learning, it was different again with us all learning together the power of using Digital Technology to support, engage and innovate learning was clear.

During our time together we discussed how we could enhance a normal classroom display (shown below) which used speech bubbles to bring a historical picture alive.


To enhance this display, we used the free app 'Morfo' which is a personal favourite of mine. It's perfect for bringing book characters, historical figures and so much more to life and really has no limits.
