Vroom vroom!


In our topic lessons this week, we have been making our car prototypes. Using our Science knowledge, we have been able to make them move unassisted! It took a combination of our Design and Technology and Science  skills to complete the challenge. We are really happy with the results!


Hour of Code Week.


Hour of code

As a school we are really taking a full part in the Hour of Code week which started on Monday, today it is your turn in Year having a go at coding 🙂 

I am expecting that Year 6 will definitely be enthusiastic about the challenge and you can apply the skills you learned last year when you wrote your own Scratch Game.

As we learned last year you don’t always manage to get your program right first time so one part of BEST you really need to do in coding is S – stick at it!  Before you ask your teacher for help there is a lot you can do for yourself – the VIRTUAL STUCK STATION!  The program will show you videos – don’t skip them, but listen carefully as they will teach you what you need to know!  Also if your code is wrong the computer will give you hints so you know what you are missing!

Today you will need some maths skills in either program you pick.

Best of luck

As you are in Year 6, I have allowed you to pick from two challenges, Frozen or Artist, both are similar however I prefer Frozen as there are some very useful tutorials – You might even like to do Frozen at school and then try artist at home!
