'Castles' with Year 1

3rd May 2017

Great afternoon with my Year 1 pupils at Lanchester EP. Used 'Epic Citadel' app from Unreal Engine to explore castles within a medieval world and then used images from this app within 'Our Story for iPad' (by Open University) to describe castles and add labels with key vocabulary linked to castles. Epic Citadel is very intuitive and Y1 pupils had no problems in navigating the town. Our Story for iPad is an excellent app for KS1 pupils to create talking stories. Both are these apps are completely FREE and are highly recommended to all schools.
