Year 5 had a very interesting morning today. We joined up with classrooms from across Wales on Microsoft Teams to look at sustainable living. They had researched sustainable houses and renewable energy earlier in the week in readiness for the session.
They planned their designs on squared paper in readiness to create them Minecraft. IT skills were essential during the lesson as they had to download a Minecraft world (still available to them in Teams) and create a sustainable home based on the research they had undertaken. They then took screenshots of their designs and uploaded them to Adobe Spark. When uploaded, they recorded themselves, explaining the sustainable features of their home and why they would have a positive impact on the environment. These videos are available to watch on the children’s One Drive.
