It’s NOT a Box!



What can you do with a Box?


Our ICT motto is to ‘Think Outside the Box’ which means to use your imagination and try to think a little differently.

To help inspire our thinking for 2014, each class read the wonderful story ‘NOT A BOX’ by Antoinette Portis, and then the children  showed how imaginative they could be with a box.

The children created their pictures using Microsoft Drawing tools on a Word document and then saved them as pictures.

The slideshow below reflects a sample from each class to demonstrate some of the creative ideas students had.
