Trees and Technology in P4S

The children in P.4S have been very excited about their tree topic following all of the “hands-on” experiences in Mount Stewart. They are now busy exploring and expressing their learning further through the use of ICT. The boys and girls looked at the school grounds in a whole new light as they studied trees around Cairnshill. IPads were used to take pictures which the pupils then transformed into very colourful and informative ‘Pic Collages’.


A new generation of movie-makers has produced stunning animations to show the seasonal changes of deciduous trees. There were plenty of problem-solving opportunities during film-making, not to mention talking and listening activities as they exchanged opinions on the finished masterpieces.


The enthusiastic young scientists have also begun work on PowerPoint presentations to exhibit their Mount Stewart learning. What tree-mendous experts P.4S have become!
