Pobble writing project 2016

We will all use the same picture from the www.pobble.com website to stimulate pupils’ writing. Writing will be shared via the project Twinspace, either scanned or recordings. We hope to include some video calls, for the pupils to share their work. There will be a Project Diary, which can be linked from schools’ websites. Pupils will be members of t...

  • I will be speaking at an international eTwinning Professional Development Workshop (PDW) this week, for 90 teachers from 16 countries. The theme is 'Supporting Literacy through eTwinning.' I will be showcasing this project, which used a picture from the free website Pobble to inspire pupils' writing, leading to further activities including foreign language work and a video call. I hope that our project will inspire other pupils and teachers to use eTwinning in their Literacy work in the future.

  • This is what C.E.I.P Manuel Vidal Portela have been doing for the Project.
    pobblebChildren wrote their stories using their Native language and they shared them using videoconference tool adobe connect from Project twinspace.


    And the winner is.....


    Some examples of their writings:



    Some of the writings were too long to be read and translated to partners through the videoconference chat , so we recorded them so that you can hear what our pupils have done.
    We shared them with our partner using adobe connect videoconference tool from etwinninlive. First, we showed where we are in a map .Three schools were connected sharing their works. The Spanish pupils read in Spanish while the teacher summarised their readings in English  through chat.

    Working in groups we were looking for geometrical shapes within the pictures.

    We made a grid with the results and using the interactive whiteboard we discovered lots of different shapes: circles, squares, rectangles...etc.

    Using Freemind my pupils made  mind maps relating the writing topic to the different Subjects/activities at school.

  • Last week, Year 5 at Oakworth Primary School used the pobble image as a stimulus for a piece of assessed writing with no adult support. The children looked closely at the image and thought about the setting then decided upon some characters and a key event. Each child wrote a story based on the picture, and, as you can imagine, all the stories were very different! One child wrote a legend, some wrote a story about a tsunami and others wrote about Greek gods! A selection of the work is attached below and I have uploaded more in the 'files' section. Enjoy!
