After spending the morning competing in our Key Stage 2 Sports Day, the children in Mrs Bullock’s class have put their computing skills to good use this afternoon; creating videos to showcase the competition. Have a look a Ben’s video below…we think it’s great as it’s fully of really fabulous captions, and some very interesting photographs too. Good job Ben!
This afternoon we became Internet detectives. To challenge our Internet browsing skills, we carried out an Internet Scavenger Hunt. It involved using and applying many Computing skills: searching for specific information; copying and pasting images and text; inserting and formatting text boxes. We enjoyed being detectives and testing our knowledge and skills!
This morning I was very priveledged to work with Evie, Leya and Esme from Year 2 and Eddie, Romy and Francesca from Year 3 who are experts in Computing! They had the challenge of designing a racing car track and programming the car to move around the track. They wrote their own code for the car to change direction and move. When encountering problems they worked together to debug the code.
It was a pleasure to work with these superstars! Thank you for working so hard. Miss Hodgson
This afternoon, Year 5 have been inspired by Jens (a lead developer on Minecraft) to create a block code using commands, repeat loops and if statements to program Alex or Steve. Did you know Jens was 11 years old when he started programming to make games for his friends?
Today we were very pleased to welcome Mr Hales. And Miss O’Neil to our school . They visited from Harpfield Academy in Stoke to see how our school blog works. They were both really brave to agree to having their photograph taken too. Thank you very much indeed.
Jess and Mehek made their props using coloured card and nylon thread for the special effects (fish appearing to move up and down). It was based on the Hungry Caterpillar with the idea of the more he eats the bigger he becomes and that’s what happens to the fish!
Cody and Shay were inspired by our History topic – the Battle of Britain – for their idea of a soldier parachuting down but unfortunately being shot as he landed. Can you see the fantastic art work in the background scenery?
Sheila and Skye have created a short clip about people making a delivery . The props were made out of Lego and play dough. They made lots of different things: flowers, bows, cup-cakes and ice-creams. It must have taken a very long time!
