Having learned about algorithms last week, we had another go with Scratch this week. We are learning the basics now so that we can develop our own programmes by the end of the year. By the way, learning about algorithms has really helped us (and Mrs Lohoar!) be more explicit with our instructions across our … Continue reading Scratch
In Computing this term, we will be learning how to program using Scratch.

The Year 5s and 6s had four different workshops over two days, including one on e-safety with Mrs Lohoar, and on Tuesday, which was Safer Internet Day around the world, there … Continue reading Safety Week
Today we learned how to use the software application Audacity to record and edit sound. We will be using the software to create a radio advert later on in the term. Check us out, hard at work, below. I hope you can see how skilled we are already.
Today we continued our learning on rivers. Now we can tell you how rivers are used around the world and explain the stages and features of a river. (Thanks, Oddizzi!) Here are our Geography Gurus of the Day with our class globe. They can name several rivers AND show you where in the world the … Continue reading Geography Day
