Anomaly Content Manager – What’s new in April?

This monthly feature focuses on all the new things you can expect this month on the Anomaly Content Manager and our other products. Anomaly Content Manager is a tailored platform designed for schools to get the most out of their Anomaly screens.

This April, we’ve focused mainly on SAT preparation and produced content to address some of the mental health problems that can arise from the stress of exams. We’ve not forgotten that it’s crucial to still allow yourself to have fun during the SATs period, so we’ve produced some new levels on our interactive games!

Overcoming Nerves – a video with RockSteady Music School

We’ve teamed up with the fantastic RockSteady Music School to produce a brilliant series of videos to help primary pupils address any mental health problems they may be facing. This video is the first of that series, focusing on overcoming nerves. The video shows how even lead singers and top songwriters get nervous. Tips on how to deal with the worry and the anxiety that comes with a daunting situation are all discussed in the video. We think it’s perfect for pupils during the stressful SATs period and contains some great advice for them to remember. (Keep your eyes peeled for future videos and for a blog post about RockSteady and what they do!) www.rocksteadymusicschool.com

We’ve also produced another video in the same vein about worrying and productive ways to prevent any unnecessary worrying.

Growth Mindset Vs Fixed Mindset

This video is a nice little video from the perspective of two superheroes; fixed and growth. Both explain their attitudes towards learning and highlight the differences between having a growth mindset and fixed mindset. Pupils may identify through this video that they do approach things with a fixed mindset, but anyone can change their way of thinking to a growth mindset – which is exactly how pupils should approach their SATs!

Math – Times tables and Odd/Even numbers

Why just look over books when you could watch some cute penguins skidding around on ice and demonstrating Math?! We’ve produced a new series of times tables videos suitable for KS2 and a video on odd and even numbers for KS1 pupils.

Now time for some fun – Curious Manor and Monster Moves

Balanced revision always need to include time to relax and have fun, so this month we’ve made new levels to the popular games Curious Manor and Monster Moves, which mixes up yoga stretches and physical activities with fun levels and characters!

Keeping with the theme of computing this month, we’ve created a Primary version of the secondary video ‘Fake News’ to help younger children question what they read online and to bring anything they’re unsure about to an adult.

Encourage healthy lifestyles with Anomaly

Using Anomaly screens to help towards promoting a healthy lifestyle is one of the main aims of Anomaly. With figures revealing that a third of children leaving primary school are obese, our graphics department have been working pedal to the metal over Summer to create some fresh, new and engaging pieces of content, that aren’t quite your traditional ‘follow an instructor’ exercise videos.

These videos immerse pupils into game shows or even a whole new world, which will get them moving around – without them even realising.

Through the gap

This series of videos asks the viewer to get their body into a position that matches the gap in the panel. This tests viewers flexibility, balance and strength to be able to hold the positions. 5 levels are currently available on the library, with more planned including levels in pairs and small teams.

Through gap

Monster Moves

Why do normal yoga when you could do monster moves yoga? This series asks the viewer to mirror the moves of the monsters and tests their memory at the end to see if they can recall the moves they have learnt.

MM 2

 

Curious Manor

Can you help with the strange events going on at the Curious Manor? This series enlists the help of the viewer to perform physical activities to test the whole body and help rid the manor of the curious happenings. Viewers can be asked anything from helping to karate chop flying plates (improving hand-eye coordination) to ducking down to avoid the swinging lights (strengthening the lower body by squatting).

CM 1

With new series planned and more in the pipeline on current series in terms of levels, difficulty and duration, pupils can get healthy by recording which levels they can complete and which they need to work on. They can even build on teamwork and co-operation with the levels that require pair work or small teams. Keep an eye out for more of these videos throughout the year!

Anagrams

Our mind teaser videos are always a popular choice to dot around playlists, especially at break times where pupils can ponder the question put to them. That’s why we’ve devised more curriculum based mind teasers and created a new series with anagrams, asking pupils to unscramble the letters to find a word based on a theme. These videos help towards pupils’ spelling and mental agility. This month we’re showing one all about colours, but there are more in library!
