Multimedia
I can review and improve my own work and support others to improve their work.

Children plan a presentation of their locations to each other. They will need to practise the way they will verbalise their description as they travel around the world. A descriptive word prompt sheet may be helpful.

(Where children are working in pairs, collect together those working on the same location to discuss features and see whether further improvements can be made. Decide which world will be presented to the rest of the class.)
Children need to include descriptive vocabulary as they take their class around their world.


Gold: Can I support others in an effective way to help them improve their work? Can I use feedback from others to improve my work?
Silver: Can I use feedback from others to improve my work?
Bronze: Can I make improvements to my work?

Children to capture screen shots of areas within their location. (Home button and power button pushed down together on iPad, snipping tool or alternative on PCs / laptops)

Children to work in pairs using screen capture to create a description of their world using appropriate apps (Book Creator, iMovie) or software (Powerpoint, Photostory, Textease Presenter)

Agree a minimum amount of text that must be added to each image.
Encourage children to evaluate their work against the success criteria agreed
