Real Life Learning on the iPad - Examples from Class
Today I tried a couple of them with our Year 3 children who relished every minute using these apps!
In Numeracy, we used Motion Math: Pizza! This app is brilliant! The children were instantly hooked! There are so many aspects of this game that get children thinking carefully. They start with a budget of £50 have to buy ingredients, design a pizza and then decide how much it should be sold for in comparison how much it cost to make. They then have to deal with customers who buy different amounts of pizzas. They have to answer quickly before the customer loses their patience and leaves. The children may run out of ingredients, have customers who feel the pizza is overpriced. After each day the children are shown what profit they have made and can then buy more ingredients and make more pizzas. As the game progresses other shops open to buy ingredients so children need to compare prices to find the best deals for their stock.
@ICT_MrP THAT WAS FANTASTIC!! Really impressed. I went to @DavyhulmePS & my old head teacher Miss Dodgson would be proud. Well done!

This was an email we received from another estate agent -
It looks like a great program you have here. The way the houses were presented are the same as we use online everyday for floor plans and virtual tours.
The descriptions on the first and fourth properties were great. They really highlighted the unique selling points of their properties, which is a vital asset in the sales process.
I think if any of the properties were on the open market then number 4 would sell the quickest. The rooms in the property flowed well, clear USP's and bungalows tend to sell well. It is a property that would tick a lot of boxes for potential buyers.
The sale of a property comes down to three key points they are the location, price and property itself. All of these properties have unique aspects, non are the same and if they were to come onto the market they would all be priced at different levels. The third property for example was the largest and most grand therefore would probably achieve a higher figure than the others but the area could affect that.
