Gladstone Park Class 5S

Today was the turn of Class 5S to come to the CLC at Queens Park. The class were very productive and got busy straight away. While we were waiting for the rest of the class the pupils quickly logged on to the network, then logged on to Fronter Brent Nature Network and they even had time to use the digital microscopes to look closely at some minibeasts.

When the class was all together they organised themselves into teams of 3. They used the iPads to scan the QR codes in our interactive books. This linked them straight to a shoet video of the minibeast. They used the books and Fronter BNN shared area to research about minibeasts and they recorded their own notes. Once they had done their research it was time to plan and practice videoing a short report. The main jobs are Director, presenter and camera operator. It was raining so we didint get a chance to go outside to the CLC garden, fingers crossed Wednesday will not be too wet, when we go to film our reports on location.

Queens Park EAL @WHEEC

The EAL students from Queens Park CLC have been studying Habitats in their Science lessons. They went to visit the Welsh Harp Environmental Education Centre to do research. They used the Comic Book App to make pages with the photos we took.

Malorees Juniors Class 3H

Today the sun was shining and the rain stayed away, which meant that Class 3H were able to go Stag Beetle hunting in the school orchard. Class 3H worked in pairs and used an iPad to take photos of the orchard habitats. We had an idea thet Stag Beetles had been spotted in the middle of the orchard. So we headed there and looked under the large rotting logs. To our delight we were treated to a show of female stag beetles. We carefully turned over a large log and saw about 5 female stag beetles. Then Mrs Heath turned over another log and spotted 7 female stag beetles. We were all excited and took some pohotos using the ipads. Once back in class we used the App Comic Book to create our own page about Stag Beetles. We have reported our sightings to PTES (people Trust for Endangered Species.) Please look out for Stag Beetles near you and protect their habitats.Well Done Class 3H.

Malorees Juniors Class 3W

It was a wet and windy afternoon, we had planned to go to visit the orchard but we were rained off.

Instead we learnt about Stag Beetles and the amazing story of their life cycle.

We created a Comic Book page to tell the story and some Stag Beetle Facts.

Class 5S on location at the WHEEC

Class 5S had a great day today at the Welsh Harp Environmental Education Centre (WHEEC)


The sun was shining and we were ready to get exploring the woodland habitat and doing some research ready for our video reports. Harry took us around the woodland habitat and we asked loads of questions about the planst and animals that live in the woods at the Welsh Harp in Brent. Even a dead tree is useful in nature.

Mrs Noon was really keen to use the iPad and didn’t miss an opportunity to film everyone working, learning and having fun outdoors.

Each group went to a different location to film. They organised themselves as a team and got busy filming an environmental report. Click here to watch all our video reports.

St Mary Magdalen’s Class 5S

Today Class 5S were exploring the garden at the CLC and seeing which plants they can find there.

We have been making some QR codes and they can be found around the garden. Class 5S found out that once they scan the QR code it took them to a video clip of that plant.
Class 5S were learning how to use the iPads to make Video Reports about the environment. They will use these skills tomorrow at the Welsh Harp when they go filming on location…… Make sure you read the blog to find out how we got on at the WHEEC.
