Year 4 Trip to the Apple Store - Thursday 19th October

To complete our first half term, a very excited Year 4 class hopped on the bus to the Apple Store in Bromley. We had completed our research on Sutton Hoo in class throughout the week, and were now going to create Podcasts of our understanding.

We received a very warm welcome to the store, and couldn’t wait to put on our Apple t-shirts! We started the session off by discussing what we already knew about Sutton Hoo. We were then given a demonstration on how to use GarageBand to record our Podcast.

We sorted ourselves into pairs and groups of three, and wrote down our notes on the iPads. We then had a go at recording our Podcasts, taking our time to listen back and to edit as we went along. When we were happy with our recordings we started to include some Intro and Ending music.

When we returned back to West Lodge we listened to all of our Podcasts in the classroom. We had a mixture of musical podcasts, with some even completed as a rap!

Thank you very much to Mr Peebles for organising the trip, and to the parents who accompanied us. The staff in the Apple Store were extremely complimentary of the children’s behaviour and were very impressed with the class!
