This half term, Year 5 are looking at vector drawing in Computing. To do this, the classes are using drawing tools within PowerPoint. Firstly, the children were introduced to vector drawings and began to develop an understanding that they are made up of simple shapes and lines. Following this, each


In Computing this half term, Year 4 have been learning all about what the internet is; we’ve been looking at servers, networks, routers and websites and then looking at how people create and compose website information and share things online.  For the last couple of lessons, we used Chrome Music L


In Year 2, we have been learning how to take fantastic photographs on the iPads in Computing. The children have learnt about what makes a good photo and what makes a bad photo. They now know the subject needs to be central and they need to frame their photograph so that all of the desired subject fi


This week Year One had their very first whole class computing lesson.  They were so excited to use the I-pads independently.  So far this term the children have learnt about what technology is – something that has a job or is useful and is made by people.  This week they were eager to use technol


In Computing, Year 2 have learnt that an algorithm is a set of instructions given to a computer. This week, they have used the controls forwards, backwards, left and right to predict how a Bee-Bot would move from one point to another. Before putting their prediction to the test, the children had to


Year One have been thoroughly enjoying our new topic in computing – animation.  The children have been using a programme called Scratch.  So far they have learnt to change the background, change the sprite (character) and can even input an algorithm to move two sprites at a time.  They are now re


During Computing lessons this half term, the children in Year 5 have been focussing on programming, primarily using Scratch to help them develop their coding skills. The children were given a brief: design an interactive quiz using the program. They conducted thorough research into their chosen topi


Over this half term in Computing, Year 4 have been using the application FMSLogo to program a screen turtle to draw simple shapes and letters. We have been creating snippets of code and then will be putting them together to form longer algorithms.  Of course at first it went wrong and the turtle wo


In Computing, Year Two have been using Chrome Music Lab to create their own musical patterns. The children explored how they could adapt their pattern by adjusting the tempo (the pace of the music) and the instrument used. Some of the children chose to create a repeating pattern while others used th
