Love is in the air!

Feb. 8, 2021

This Sunday is Valentine's Day, arguably one of the most popular days of the year for school going children. It is a day where love is about the place and there is a palpable excitement. It is also a day teachers struggle to get children to settle down and work on! So why not buy into the excitement and harness that enthusiasm into a worthwhile creative project.

2Create a Story is a wonderful thing

Feb. 1, 2021

Following on from last month's Mash of the Month, here is more about the amazing tool 2Create a Story.

2Create a Story allows children to create their own multimedia digital storybooks. There are three modes of 2Create a Story: My Simple Story, My Story and My Adventure Story. With these modes, you are able to put together amazing creative writing activities that can be used for cross-curricular activities and tie in all learning areas when working through a common theme.
