Coding Club was amazing last week! Children from Year 5 and 6 discovered programming extends far beyond the computer as they began to create programs for inventions they created from Lego, including footballers and goalies, moving frogs and race cars with sensors which stop when something moves in front of it.
Children from Year 5 and 6 spent an evening this week in Codex Club at Bolton Science and Technology Centre. There they experienced Scratch programming and 3D printing – they even used CorelDraw to design their own 3D keyrings!
They have been telling their classmates all about it and can’t wait to go again next week.
What an excellent opportunity!
Last week, year three were visited by Mr B, an adult who knows all about the Stone Age. Excitedly, they investigated ancient artefacts and fascinating fossils. They also dressed up in stone age costumes.
Recently, year three completed their food technology which was based on the Stone Age. Excitedly, they made stone age bread and parsnip soup however it was disgusting.

Our Digital Leaders met this morning for an E-Safety Champions meeting. They discussed what they have been doing so far to help their classes with online safety and shared ideas about online gaming and YouTube privacy settings. Finally, they helped to prepare an E-Safety questionnaire for each class to complete this week.
This afternoon, Digital Leaders from Year 6 visited Year 5 Green to present their questionnaire and talk a little about their role in school.
Keep up the hard work!
