Picture 4Sue’s Y7 students have created PowerPoint Presentations to introduce themselves to Mary Glasgow.

‘Mary Glasgow’ visited them in the shape and form of our Education Design Manager Nicolle Thomas who is currently planning the look and feel and visual user-friendliness of our magazines for the new series 2014/2015.

Nicolle is already working on many new layouts and to road test her ideas with kids and teachers in the classroom she went to see Sue and her students.

The Y7s presented Nicolle with their PowerPoint slides. They used a variety of information from the basics – name, age, town of residence, school etc. – to the description of their likes and to presentation of information that is only relevant to them, such as winning the Nigel Johnson award, or their imagined self such as being the World kick boxing Champion. See here for yourself.

As an art worker Nicolle was particularly struck with the Y7’s artistic talent. “I was particularly impressed with the eye-catching design“, she said.

I think it was a fantastic idea to use this occasion of a visit by Nicolle to give the Y7s an opportunity to show what they have learned in the past three months. Great fun for all and so vital pedagogically.

 How do you connect classroom learning to the wider world? On which occasions do you display your students’ schoolwork to people from outside the school community? How else do you make students learning relevant in real life? We love to hear your ideas.
