Y5 Connected
Our topic for Term 2 was 'connected'. We decided to trial the projects function by getting the students to collaborate online in a group of 3. The catch was, each member of their group was from a different class (we have 3 year 5 classes). For the project, students originally got together to meet with their group and decide on what they needed to do to get the project completed. Students then needed to assign different jobs to each member as they would not be working next to each other as the work would be completed in class.

This task really challenged the students collaborative skills. At the end of the assignments, students gave a presentation..some struggled, some soared!
