Hello Roehampton university!

We are going to try holding a FaceTime call via the internet with the students at Roehampton Institute using an iPad. Some of our year 5 students will be standing by to answer questions. Of course there is a chance that the technology might not work and a dodgy wi fi signal stops us taking part. Fingers crossed!

The conference call went really well. I was extremely proud of our pupils Joshua, Katie, Joy, Antonia, Christabel, Darrel, Hollie W, Abbie & Jennifer. They were extremely articulate and made highly intelligent observations. Thank you pupils – I was VERY proud of you! You were excellent ambassadors for the school.

  2. Hello St Teresa’s RC Primary,

    I came across your blog while viewing some Blog Dipping blogs. FaceTime on the iPad is a great way of sharing. It seems better than Skyping because the images flow more smoothly.

    Having skyped with a US class, I know how interesting these sharing sessions can be. 🙂

  5. Hello,

    My name is Kelly and I am a student at from Roehampton University. Thank you for taking the time to speak to us yesterday about music and blogging. Your answers were really useful! One other thing that would be interesting for me to find out is whethe you have been using computer software (for example Garage Band) or more traditional instruments to make the music you have been blogging about?


    • Thank you!! ..I think i leave that question to Mrs Schnieder!!


    • We have used djembe drums – we borrowed 30 from our local music service but the rest of the time we use our voices and various percussion instruments. We do experiment with garageband but we only have have my iPad to use in lessons.


    • I am so sorry Christabel! I have changed it but apologies for getting it wrong.


  6. Hello everyone 😀 My name is Jade, I am from Roehampton University and I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for talking to us today on the iPad’s. It was so much fun! You were all so helpful, thank you for answering all of our questions and being such good fun to talk to. We all learned so much from you, it was really interesting to find out why you like blogging and what your favourite things about Music and blogging are. You are very lucky to have such interesting lessons in Music, one day I hope to teach such brilliant lessons! Also thank you to Mrs Schneider for answering our questions. I have never used an iPad before and I have realised how useful they can be for teaching and learning. Thank you all again, Jade.
