Social media for Rothesay

We had a morning session all about social media, looking at how we could share our work using social media and what we could do to stay safe online.

Our tweet about learning about social media was sent all around the world, even in a few hours!

We all worked in groups and sent our first tweets about our project work, writing them in Word then counting the characters to make sure they were not more than 140 and adding hashtags like ‘#golf’ to describe our tweet; we sent them out from the school Twitter account

We also made some videos and audioboos about using social media, to show what we had learned in our groups.

Today we had the chance to interview Iain MacDonald about his hobby Shinty

Today we had the chance to interview Iain MacDonald about his hobby Shinty, our favourite bit was when he told a story about how he got three stitches on his head! He plays for Kyles Athletic, he did play as captain for Bute Shinty Club first team. He also played for Scotland, we loved asking him questions and hearing his answers. He had lots of interesting answers! It was great opportunity for us Primary sevens. He is a brilliant Shinty player and a very interesting man to talk to.
