KUBBEE

 

KUBBEE is a pilot English language learning app to support the learning of simple words and phrases. Download the app from Google Play.

KUBBEE is the outcome of a participative, digital and arts-based project with Roma families at Cuthbertson Primary School who coproduced a language learning app to support communication with schools and improve access to services and the wider community. The name of the app ‘KUBBEE’ is a play on the school’s nickname ‘cubby’. KUBBEE has five language options: Romanian, Slovak, Polish, Hungarian and English. The app has three learning sections – My Lessons, My Cards and Situations. Words are learned through a multiple-choice format and a unique ‘create a card’ feature which allows learners to create their own learning content by producing personalised flash cards to document and learn new vocabulary.

On board the NHS Grampian mobile information bus

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Moray Council, Grampian NHS Trust and the Gypsy/Traveller community. The Community Information bus will be used by Moray Gypsy/Traveller educator Jo Kirby to share information about education and other services with Traveller families who may be mobile or based in remote locations. Our future plans are to develop specific education resources for the bus that can supplement learning during periods of mobility.

Landscaping at St Francis Primary School

Children from the Gypsy/Traveller community and friends from the settled community have been working with STEP developing new skills for life and work at St Francis Primary School in Edinburgh. As part of an initiative to make connections between the pupils’ lives inside and outside of school, the pupils are able to use their practical, creative and problem-solving skills to plan a better environment for the whole school community.  So far, the outside areas have been photographed and measured. The photos have been uploaded to iPads to allow the school grounds to be designed for fun and learning. The pupils have also been doing internet searches to find some very unusual inspiration from other places. Watch this space for photographic updates!

Artist Janie Nicoll at Gretna Primary

Wonderful news! Glasgow-based artist, Janie Nicoll, will spend May and June collaborating with P7 pupils and teachers at Gretna primary school. We have no idea what shape the project will take yet as it will be designed and led by children from the travelling and settled communities.  Together they will explore common themes that make their worlds great. The residency will culminate in a celebratory exhibition/event involving parents, carers, extended families and the members of the wider community in Gretna. We can’t wait to see it and hear what the young people have to say!
