It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!



We have been busy decorating our christmas tree and thought we could use some of the great ICT facilities we are lucky to have at IPACA.

We had a visit from Mr Simmonds from IPACA Royal Manor Campus who came to help out with some DT work. We were creating our designs using Foldify, a great app on the iPads that let's you design nets to turn into 3D objects.

We all designed simple cubes but created christmassy designs. This was the easy bit, it was harder gluing the nets together to make the 3D cubes but we managed and were very pleased to see our finished work decorating one of the trees in our base.



We hope you like our decorations.

wow, your learning spaces are looking VERY Christmassy. I'm in China and loving to see the progress you have all made this year. Well done!

What a great idea using 3D nets for decorations! Your tree is lovely. Here in New Zealand it is summertime so our Christmas Day is usually very warm. I like to spend the day at the beach on Boxing Day.

Your Christmas decorations look great. Merry Christmas from Canberra the capital of Australia! We have Christmas trees to celebrate Christmas too but it is summertime here.

What an amazing tree and wonderful decorations.

A merry Christmas to you all from a very very foggy Lincolnshire, where Hobbits apparently live!

Thanks everyone, we are very proud of our Learning spaces and excited to see it looking christmassy for the first time!

Vivian and Robyn it's very strange for us to imagine what Christmas is like in the summer time!

What an amazing Xmas tree, so full of presents! We are just going to collect our Xmas tree here in Melbourne Australia, next weekend. The trouble will be finding a tree that doesn't have a Koala in it! Oh well, maybe we can just bring the Koala back with the tree! Happy Xmas from Melbourne - its summer here and very hot..
