On Wednesday 19th May the children from both Mendham Primary School and St Edmund’s Primary, Hoxne, joined together for a day of computing.
The focus was the new curriculum and although the children have been taught using the new curriculum since September this was a day to give the children a taste of what more there is to come as well as looking at how computing is used in the real world. The children were organised into their house groups and worked in mixed ability groups. There was a carousel of 4 activities;
- making films using only a laptop (this activity was led by our yr6 digital leaders, from both sites working together, and it was completely their own idea!)
- looking at how websites are used and then having a go at using a template to create their own house website
- using the Lego Wedo to explore how the programming works, then programme their own alligators and complete different tasks based on algorithms
- Barefoot computing (Algorithms) KS1 and How the Internet works (Barefoot)(KS2)
