Year 3 have been turning everything they know about volcanoes into some excellent leaflets using Purple Mash. They looked at all of the different parts of the software to make their leaflet appealing.
Year 4 have been working hard to create PowerPoints to give information about the Romans. They have collected information from the internet and added their own images, fonts and transitions.
Look at the information we found!
Phoebe, Kitty and Amiliah had and amazing time and worked incredibly hard to create a stop frame animation. The even managed to edit a song for the party at the end. Watch out for the music it kicks in rather loud.
Check out their video below.
Welcome to the Cookie Monster Daycare!
Year 6 have been demonstrating some amazing Computer-Aided design skills.
They completed a number of task in order to design a house.
First, they were given a problem and were asked to write their own brief from it. It wasn't easy!Then they used that brief to design a house for a family with a specific set of needs. They all put in a great deal of effort but it definitely paid off!
Don't you agree?
Year 5 became game designers
They explored different games using Kodu software to come up with their own objective for a game before they actually designed it.
Once they had designed the games, they thought about what obstacles and characters to include. They added things like rockets, robots, apples, castles and cannons.It was a BLAST!
Year 5 have been using a MAKEY-MAKEY to play games. Kori used Gummy Bears to control a Pacman game and Lily had a fabulous time playing Mario with Playdough!
Kori's Gummy Bears
Year 3 have shown they understand formulae in a spreadsheet to be able to multiply numbers. Some children demonstrated a good understanding by applying their knowledge to more difficult multiplication sums that they made up themselves by altering the values within the sheet.
We explored things that turn on and off.
We explored divide and conquer algorithms and networks by using the Guess Who game. We asked each other questions to whittle it down to only one person left.
Year 1 have been exploring the outside area and taking some excellent images with the iPads. They all had a brief to fulfil and managed to find a selection of different types of transport. This fit in very well with tehir recent "Move It" topic.
Year 3 have worked incredibly hard to learn how to code in a number of different programs this year. They have used apps on iPads and software on computers to make their characters (sprites) move around the screen and complete some really tricky tasks. Well done guys!
Year 5 have been exploring Stop Frame Animation. They have created and filmed their own animated scenes. It took a very long time and lots of practise to take the images without accidentally getting their hands in the shot. They worked so hard! An excellent effort!
Year 4 went to Space 2 Learn to explore coding using robots! It was incredibly fiddly putting the Lego together, even some of the teachers needed help. Programming the robot wasn't easy but they got there in the end. They managed to add a sensor and program that too! Wow! The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and even managed to rebuild the robot and design their own tracks to follow back at school. Good job guys!
