Let’s get Quad Blogging

Last Friday Lilycroft’s Digital Leaders worked with other leaders from the Shine partnership and David Mitchell to start quad blogging. We learnt many new skills, as you will see below with a program called animoto and something called padlet, we even communicated with another school in Manchester! We are planning on inviting parents in to learn how to blog so you can see all of our fantastic work so watch this space! But for now, enjoy our animoto of the work we did on Friday.
