Today was a really exciting day in Year Six, not because of the Christmas Production rehearsal, but rather for a new way of working that we have tried.

Over the past few weeks we have been using a program called Synchroneyes in class. It let’s me as a teacher see what everyone is doing on their laptops, which is great. We can also share each other’s screens and all sorts of clever stuff.

Today we took another big step forward in the way that we learn. We used the ‘chat’ feature of Synchroneyes to collaborate together and share information that we found out about a famous Victorian explorer called David Livingstone.

It was a brilliant way of working which let us share loads of information really quickly. As they say “many hands make light work!”

All the children were so focused on the task we didn’t hear the playtime bell!
Well done everyone.

    Hello again. I see you have been studying David Livingstone. Did you find out where he was born? He was born in a town in Scotland called Blantyre. Can you find it on google earth? As you know, David Livingstone went to Africa as an explorer and educator. He lived in a part of Africa that is now called Malawi. The capital city of Malawi is called Blantyre.

    Another interesting fact about David Livingstone is that he finished his education at the age of 10 years, and went to work in a factory.
