Today we played ‘The Calendar Game’ created by our Austrian friend Gerald for our Erasmus+ group. We are certainly learning and playing with ICT. The Junior and Senior infants used the wireless mouse and matched pictures and seasons with each other. All the children participated and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
Over the past few days we’ve had five online meetings with our partner schools in France, Croatia, Portugal, Lithuania and Austria. We sang Silent Night in Irish, English and played it on the tin whistle. The other schools also sang Silent Night in their native language. We asked each other questions about Christmas in each country and played an online card game where we had to try and find the matching Santas. Everyone from Infants to Sixth class took part. It was great fun.
We learned how to click, double-click, drag and drop, copy and paste, open, close, and save a Microsoft Publisher document.
We printed some of our work and brought it home. We also made recordings of each other. You can listen to some of them below.
