    Myst returns 

    Myst V - End of Ages

    Over the next 2-3 weeks we will be strolling through ‘Stories set in Imaginary worlds‘, a unit of work from the Literacy  Primary Framework. It suggests a range of activities including using digital media as well as ‘traditional’ books. Teachers are left with a choice – use the activities suggested, adapt the acitivities suggested or take the objectives and create your own activities. I’m going for the latter. (More …)

      Good luck with the unit Kevin… I’m looking forward to hearing about the results as our school prepares to use Myst to inspire learning throughout Term 5!

        Thanks for the comment Mark. I’ll update our adventures on my blog and I’ll also get my class to use the class blog too. I’ll look forward to finding out how your school uses Myst too.

      Good luck with your unit Kevin… I look forward to reading about your travels. Keep in touch. HAVE FUN…AND… TAKE YOUR TIME 🙂

        I will definitely take my time 🙂 I discovered that with my last excursion using the game – there’s no need to get to the end just because ‘school time’ dictates. If we haven’t finished the game by the unit end then there’s always after half term and beyond. Let the FUN commence

    Myst V – Day 5 The first Trailer 

    Today’s lesson was fantastic. The children knew, just as I did, that it was going to be a good one. They had finished writing their voice over scripts yesterday so they only had to edit them, tweak them into 30 seconds and rehearse performing them. It was an intensive lesson with lots of speaking and listening, probably more speaking come to think of it! But the end product was worth the extra work that they put in. They also had time to write their first rough draft for a descriptive poem based on Tim Ryland’s brilliant work.

    This is the first trailer so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
