Autumn Term 1 2019

Coding

Year 3 started their coding topic by recaping the coding specific vocbulary they need to understand to when they are creating their own programme.  

 

Coding

Year 6 have learnt how to create and 'call' a 'function' (a block of code that can be accessed when needed, so the same block of code does not need to be repeatedly rewritten).

Here, Harlie created a 'function' that included a 'repeat' code to get the turtle to move in a square. She then created a code that when the 'Square' button is clicked the pen is put down and the 'function' is called to get the turtle to draw a square on the screen. Click in the 'square' button to watch her code in action.

Coding

Year 2 have been using code to deliver the shoppping. Well done everyone! 

Cross Curricular Link - Science Week

During Science Week, all pupils got the chance to use QR Codes to find out more information about the materials they found on their 'Materials Treasure Hunt'.  

Online Safety Club

Be Internet Legends - Be Sharp!

The Online Safety Club have recorded a podcast explaining what you need to do to be an Internet Legend. They also talked in detail about how to Be Sharp! By thinking before you share. Clikc on the link above to listen to their advice.

Coding

In Year 5's coding topic they are creating real-life simulation games. Here, Tudor is in the middle of creating a football game. He has completed the challenge of coding the football to move at the speed and the angle of the swipe action the player makes and is moving on to coding the ball to return to its starting position if it hits the purple wall.

Exploring Our Seesaw App

Year 1 have been learning how to log on to our Seesaw Digital Learning Journal by scanning the class QR code, how to add posts including photographs, videos and drawings to their own Journal and how to use the mark marking tools. Great computational tinkering everyone!

 

Cross Curricular Link - Science

Year 3 have been using their knowledge of how to use a search engine to find out information about nocturnal animals. 

Cross Curricular Link - French

Year 3 used the iPads to take photographs of their conversations. They then used the app Shadow Puppet Edu to record their conversations to their photographs. This allowed the children to present their understanding and speaking skills of French greetings in a creative way.

Online Safety Club

 

The children in Online Safety Club used the app ChatterPix Kids to help share or Be Internet Legends online safety message.

Be SHARP!  Think before you share!

 

Cross Curricular Link - Reading

Year 1 have used the seesaw app to film each other reading. This has not only giving them more practise at filming videos and using Seesaw but has also given them a reason for reading. Super reading Jasmine and your partner did a great job filming too!
