July 19, 2017: Photo Stories
We've been making photo stories using Comic Life on the iPads. The children had to plan a story, take photos for it, and then make a comic to tell the story. They chose a template that made their photos look like hand drawn images, and here are two of the creations completed so far;



March 17, 2017: Fit for a Royal
Our after school Minecraft creativity club completed their latest task this week. They've been busy designing and then building a well known sight... They have done magnificently. With this completed, they are now returning to a previous building - their cinema - and finishing off the inside of it.



January 29, 2017: 2DIY Mountains Quiz
At home, Jacob created a brilliant online 2DIY quiz based on the geography work we have been studying in class. How well do you know your mountains of the world?

November 21, 2016: The TARDIS
Our after school STEAM club have completed their first project - a 3D printed version of the Doctor's TARDIS.



October 30, 2016: Try a Victorian Quiz
What a pleasant surprise to discover that during the half term Jake created his own Victorian quiz using 2DIY in PurpleMash. Can you get all the answers to his questions right?

Fantastic work Jake. Well done!



October 17, 2016: Shapes in Scratch
Wow - what an amazing class of programmers are in class 7. Today they were challenged to create a programme that would let them move a character around the screen, and then draw a shape when they pressed specific keys. They all worked really hard and learnt lots of new skills. This was the screen of instructions that Roxy and Omari finished up with.



October 4, 2016: Programming Success
Class7 completed their programming unit of work today and were given a challenge to use 'Logo' to make a complicated shape by typing just one word. After a lot of thinking about forward, backward, left, right and "procedures" they began to solve the challenge. Congratulations to Sarah and Carly who were the first group to successfully create the shape using a "procedure" they called 'box'.



July 20, 2016: Movie Time
Over the past term the children in class 7 and class 3 have been planning special film projects in their computing lessons. Every pupil in each class has been involved in one way or another, as we initially began with a discussion about what type of film should be made. The children watched some examples that children had created in previous years - the brilliant silent movie films, some examples of greenscreen films, and also how SpecialFX could be used within a film. As a class they each came up with the idea for science fiction films (at this point Mr. W quietly shook his head thinking this would be too difficult to do). In class 7 they chose Lewis to storyboard their ideas and put it together to tell a story, and then began to write a script involving a range of characters. A director was chosen (Mollie) who then had the role of listening to budding actors audition before selecting a group of children to take on the roles in the movie. Other children were given other roles as part of the project; there was a prop master who needed to make sure we had the items mentioned in the script. there was a cameraperson whose job was to record all the scenes for the movie. there were editors who would have to put all the scene clips together, cut bits out, add extra sound effects and make the film look awesome and of course there were 'extras' who would be needed within some of the scenes of the movie. Well, it's taken a little longer than we anticipated - mainly due to other events that have taken our computing time away - but I'm pleased to say they've completed their masterpieces.



July 11, 2016: Printing the Future
As part of our ever developing computing curriculum, we were excited this week to receive our latest piece of technology: a 3D printer. This amazing device allows us to print out 3D objects that can be held, examined, coloured and be amazed by. We already have a great piece of software within our PurpleMash online resource that allows pupils to create 3D designs of cars, trucks, lorries, buses, trains, houses, and various other 3D shapes. It's called '2Design&Make' (you'll find it in the 'tools' section of PurpleMash) and now, with our new 3D printer, we can take those pupil designs and make physical copies that can be held and coloured. In September there are plans to use this within lessons, and at other times across the curriculum too. We've tested it with a PurpleMash vehicle, as well as an ornamental vase, and Mrs Ingle has asked for a special object related to her class and a lesson topic...

June 11, 2016: eSafety poster competition winners
Congratulations to Adam, year 6 and Ellie, year 4 for winning the esafety poster competition. Both pupils have had their artwork printed into full size posters which will displayed around the school.They are both fab and promote an important message.
