Computing

 

At Spilsby Primary Academy, we understand the importance of computing in the developing world. This means that we will adapt our approach as new technologies become available and present children with a range of resources. We aim to give children the skills and foundations to build on throughout their life. We believe that computing can be used in all areas of the curriculum to enhance progress. 

Year 2R loved using the BeeBots this morning and applied their knowledge of directions and creating programs to move around different London landmarks.

This afternoon in Year2, the children used their knowledge of directions and the iPad's to complete some challenges on the BeeBot app!

A very impressive morning from year 2 using the Lego We Do. The children had to follow instructions and work through algorithms and debug programs to make their models move!

During computing, Mr Carlton taught year 3 how to make a game on Scratch. We picked underwater characters and then had to program them by creating an algorithm. We were also taught about debugging which is when an algorithm needs changing.

Year 2 had a great time working with 'We Do Lego' to create and program Lego models!

Year 6 used great D&T and then computing skills this afternoon by first designing a roller coaster carriage, labelling its features and discussing the forces it withstands, then sequencing and selecting programme skills to create a looping animation.

Year 5 used Lego to create future robobugs. A fantastic mix of science and computing.

Year 6 worked creatively with Lego to design and make snowmobiles suitable for Polar Exploration today.

Year 6 created some great StopMotion movies in computing today to show their scientific understanding of life cycles.

This afternoon Year 2 used 'Explain Everything' on the iPads to explain what plants need to grow!

Brillaitn work in Year 1- creating and debugging programmes as they moved on to creating their own woodland scene with characters and programming to make them move.

The children in Reception have used the paint programme on the interactive whiteboard to create their own firework picture. They used the different tools and techniques on the programme to adapt their work. We spoke about our own experiences of bonfire night and how we keep safe.

Years 5 and 6 used the Lego and WeDo app to create minibeasts and programme them to move and react.

Year 2 loved using the Scratch Jr app on the iPads this morning to program, sequence and debug their characters!

Our year 1 children programming using Bee-Bot! Great to see experience of writing computer programs to help solve problems.

Y6 using 'stop motion' on the iPad's to show the circulatory system.

A great morning where the children used the Google Slides app to create a presentation on a subject of their choice!

Year 6 have chosen an aspect of WWII that they wanted to find out more about . They have then created a digital presentation to present to their peers this week.

Year 6 have been creating digital invitations to formally invite their parents to their end of project Wow Event. They looked at invitations from the period to ensure their writing was appropriate and followed an invitation structure

A super WeDo Lego lesson with Mr Carlton for year 3! They created and programmed a robot using the IPads.

Year 6 were challenged with making a moon buggy & to then make their own adaptations to allow for the different terrestrial surfaces they would encounter. #spacetravel #differentmaterials

One of my favourite lessons at school! Using #WeDoLego. They planned and created a sequence of instructions for a pulling robot to support their #MightyMetals project!

Year 3 used the laptops this afternoon to make some tables of data for the speed objects travelled down a slide in different materials! They use Excel software to successful complete their task.
