Yesterday 5th class presented their JEP ideas to our Dragons Den Panel. Jill Doyle our entrepreneur, Ms Purcell and Ms Murphy very kindly made up our panel. Each group presented their idea with a power point presentation which we learned how to do in class with the school laptops. The presentations were fantastic and the standard was so high. I was very proud of each group. The Dragons gave great positive and constructive feedback. They had a very hard decision to make. We will be announcing our winning idea when we have tweaked it and worked together on it as a class. Well done 5th Class, great job!
Today Jill Doyle came to visit, she talked and answered questions about being an Entrepreneur. Jill set up and runs NPAS (National Performing Arts School) We asked her a few questions, like did she take any risks? ''Is it fun being an Entrepreneur?' Was it harder than you thought?' 'Was it hard on the first day?' She gave us great advice and we learned a lot about what it takes to run a successful business. It was a great help in the next step for our JEP journey.
Take a look at Division in particular at the moment as we are covering this in class.
When recently trying to find a clip of the song, 'O Fortuna' by Carl Orff for the class I came upon a great video of the song accompanied by Turner paintings. I love the work of Turner so this was a great opportunity to link our Music lesson with our Art lesson for this week. The children are currently learning the song for the National Children's Choir.
