2s is going retro

What is old is new again in Class 2S. This term students have been introduced to LPs as a way of playing music. Their enthusiasm to play some of the 70s old favourites such as Pink Floyd and Cat Stevens was initially surprising to Mr Spargo but at any opportunity possible the students are enjoying taking turns to choose an album as background music. “Do you have to swap the record over after only 6 songs?!” exclaim one student! The class are enjoying the physical interaction with the record player but are amazed at the limitations of the technology. An interest in all things Retro has extended to exploring old time games and developing digital art based only on 8-pixels – investigations which tie into both Year 2’s History lessons – Wagga’s past – and their current Science topic of simple machines.
