Children in Year 5 and 6 have been exploring how to use computer based programs to control physical objects. It is still early days but at the moment children have started to look at how motors and LEDs can be managed using computer program.
The art gallery has had an update. Current work includes photography from year 6, painted fireworks from nursery, watercolours from year 2 and pencil work from year 5 and 4. Year 3 produced artwork as part of their family day visit to Cartwright Hall in Bradford.
We are delighted to announce that St John’s C E Primary School have raised a fantastic £2876 for the NSPCC. Years 1 to 6 took part in the sponsored fun run in the last week of half term. The children thoroughly enjoyed tackling the track that was set up on the field. Every child ran or walked at least 1 mile. All the children that took part should be very proud of what they have achieved individually and as a school. Also a big thank you to those who sponsored a child; your support is very much appreciated by the school and the NSPCC.
Key stage 2 classes have been visited by the Google Expeditions team. Each class had thirty minutes to explore various locations as part of their topic work. Some classes went to the moon and others went deep into the Ocean. Each ‘tour’ was led by class teachers and children had the opportunity to look around the location using the virtual reality headsets (Google Cardboard) to found out more information. Although the visit was a one-off, the virtual expeditions have complimented the work done in history, geography and science.
