January 18, 2017: Building Big Ben
The Monday after school STEAM club have been busy working on a grand project for the past two months, and have finally completed it. They have been using the 3D printer, a clock kit and a Raspberry Pi to print the parts of the Big Ben tower, paint the parts, construct the tower, install a working clock, and finally programme a computer to play recordings of the actual chimes and bongs of Big Ben. The printed pieces | Painting | Constructing the Tower Adding a working clock | Adding the computer | Completed Tower Fantastic work from all involved.

December 18, 2016: A towering success
Well done to the Monday after school STEAM club who have completed painting and constructing their latest 3D creation - Elizabeth Tower, home of Big Ben. After Christmas they will be adding real working clock hands to one of the faces to turn their creation into a working timepiece.

Mr Lee's Eco Club got off to a flying start last Friday. They began by harvesting the vegetable patch. What an amazing harvest!

April 3, 2014: Homertron - A CodeClub project
I am so impressed with the hard work and careful thinking that has been demonstrated for the past two weeks during our afterschool CodeClub sessions. The children were given the opportunity to create their own computer animation / task / game rather than follow a set of provided instructions. Ben, cl3, used this time to create an amazing game that began as a green blob being followed around the screen by black blobs. He modified his creation (edited it), corrected mistakes within it (debugged it), and then improved how it looked to end up with 'Homertron'. It's a nod to the the original Tron film, but with a donut hunting Homer rather than lightbikes. Enjoy! Unfortunately the embedding of the game for all to play and enjoy has been delayed whilst we investigate a bug that has appeared as the project was uploaded and transformed from a Scratch1 to a Scratch2 file. Update: we have revised the code to version2 but know that moving in a NW direction whilst playing on a Mac causes the game to end. We're not sure why this happens, but it seems to work fine when playing on a Windows system. We think we've found a solution to this problem now, with a third revision of the code. If the game above does not play correctly, please let us know!
