Hot off the press … look at twitter feed @DeputyMitchell and follow the tweets by Year 6 pupils. In case the tweets have disappeared by the time you look, here are some amazing examples from pupils at:
Clayton CE Primary School, Wibsey Primary School, Miriam Lord Primary School, Swain House Primary School, Green Lane Primary School and Thackley Primary School.
Awesome stuff Year 6! The descriptive writing is amazing and it’s a great example of using Twitter in the classroom. Thanks to Deputy Mitchell for sharing it with us.
