A huge well done and thank you to all the children and staff who took part in the Extreme Reading Challenge. We had over 100 entries and it has been wonderful to see so many of you reading in different and unusual places. The staff and children loved seeing all the entries in our assembly on Thursday.
Children in Key Stage 2 have been using the Spheros as part of their computing work this half term. Children have been exploring how increasing the speed changes stopping distance whilst also looking for the most effective way of getting from a-to-b as part of various challenges. Children have needed refine their code to ensure it works.
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.
