12/09/17 - R.E and Computing (Family Trees)

As part of their R.E topic, ‘People’, Year 4 have been exploring their family trees. This week, the children had a fantastic opportunity to create their very own online, interactive family tree with the help of Hi-Impact. Mr Griffiths and Mrs Marsden had the children engaged from the start and they were all amazed by what they could achieve using the iPad app ‘TinyTap’.


All of the children had to use their computing skills in order to create an interactive family tree that even included links to other pages! Once they had designed the background, the children then inserted all of their family names onto the template. Some children even recorded voice notes to reveal some interesting facts about certain family members!


The children had a great lesson and realised just how much they knew about their families and how it can be used to create something fantastic. What a brilliant opportunity to explore their family tree and learn all about their new classmates’ families too!
