Children’s self assessments using ThingLink

Having used Pic Collage and ThingLink to send Christmas and holiday wishes, we thought it would be a good idea to use the same process to share all of our achievements from the first term and what we will continue to work on next term.

This meant that the children had an opportunity to reflect more deeply on their learning and have a better understanding of where they were at and where they now need to go. All of this was achieved in a more creative and fun way that most importantly had the desired impact.

ThingLink is a great app that allows lots of videos or text to be used around one image. In this way, every child’s thoughts can be shared in one place. A great way to start a topic with ideas or summarising learning at the end. In addition to this, it can be used to have a class base of ideas at the start of a piece of written work.
