Here is a video I made with a group of P7 pupils last term.

They were studying the Solar System, gathering information about the differing characteristics of the planets. My aim was to enable them to understand more about using symbols and shorthand to make notes from a wide range of texts, including spoken word and videos and then to present their knowledge in a dyslexia friendly format.

We discussed how we could symbolise these characteristics and the ensuing video was made.

I have a great deal to learn about making reasonable videos, not least planning the environment and ensuring we all know how to keep a steady hand when recording!

However, I work in the real world, with limited time to research, plan and execute the task. So, without too many apologies, here is the finished product.

Thanks to the group who workled so enthusiastically.
