Upper school have been learning to program a lunar rover as part of their topic work. After a bit of practice at writing instructions using an app, they all had a go at making the robot move. Next time, they'll be programming the rover to move around and avoid objects on its own.

Children in Lower School have truly demonstrated their creative flair this week, designing a range of games using the skills and knowledge that they have developed throughout our topic! From quiz style board games to games using electrical circuits to programming their own computer games! We even had the pleasure of sharing our learning with Upper School this afternoon...

December 16, 2018: Programming by pupils
Well done to these three pupils who, over the past term, have learnt computational thinking, begun to create programs using an online editor, and then applied their learning to make robots change direction when they are close to an object, make robots follow a line, and finally learn how to program a drone to reach a specific target. They had a great time.

January 19, 2018: Invasion!
After preparing their shields earlier in the week, the Roman soldiers in classes 1, 3 and 7 met in the hall on Thursday for their final instructions before they then marched off towards the Barbarian Celtic tribes in classes 4, 5 and 6. When attack horns were blown, the children stormed into the tribal areas, removed the local Chieftan, and forced the Celts to become Roman. Once the locals had agreed to a new way of life, the soldiers withdrew and began to write diaries recording their magnificent victory. Here are just two of the diaries from some of the Roman soldiers.
