P4 Shared Education

Following on from the successful launch of the Shared Education programme last year, Hardy Memorial and St Patrick's have continued this year to strengthen their strong partnership.  The P4 classes from both schools gathered on Friday 19th October in Richhill Recreation Centre to begin their 8 week programme which involves cultural dance and ICT.  Throughout all sessions pupils will develop friendships established last year and make new friends whilst engaging in the traditional arts programme.  With AMMA support children will also be given the opportunity to use Spheros and Scratch Junior. 

 

Below are some photos from our first joint session on Friday 19th October.

P4M met up with St Patricks in the AMMA centre, Armagh on Thursday 25th October. Both schools brought along fabulous backgrounds which the children had drawn and painted.  The scenes were linked to WW2 countryside, railway, Blitz and VE Day.

Scratch Junior was used to create a levelled game. Photographs of the backgrounds were taken in the app.  Sprites were edited within the app and others were drawn. The children thoroughly enjoyed creating and helping each other to code. Great progress was made and we look forward to returning to AMMA to complete this part of the project on Thursday 15th November.

Great fun was had with the Spheros. The room was set up like a battle field and one group were the Axis Powers and others were the Allies.  The Spheros were controlled using the iPad. There was definitely a battle! Great skill starting to be shown.

P4M met up with their friends from St Patrick’s on a Thursday 15th November in the AMMA Centre, Armagh.  They completed their WW2 Scratch Junior two levelled game. Their projects are absolutely fabulous.  There will be an opportunity to view some of them at our Celebration Day on Tuesday 18th December.  There was also a tense battle with the spheros.  The Axis Powers fought the Allied Powers in a very close battle with plenty of excitement.
