Platinum Class

Hello and welcome to Platinum class.

Green Screen Technology

We have been lucky enough to be able to trial using our new online journal (Seesaw) to save some of our cross-curricular work to.  We have written some informative and thought provoking presentations around the issue of plastics and our environment – in particular the World’s Oceans. We combined using a range of persuasive techniques and vocabulary, to really put our point across to our viewers.  We used a combination of green screen technology and apps such as Apple Clips and Chatterpix, to create some amazing visual presentations and saved them into our Seesaw accounts.  Below are just a couple of examples of what we have produced.   I think you will agree, the children have a strong message to put across to us all about saving the environment for their future.  Maybe it’s time to change?
