This term our focus in ICT has been all about controlling devices. We have been using the Beebot App on the iPads and the floor robot. We have programmed the beebot to move around the maze on the iPad and entered commands to move the floor robot from one place to another.
We have a new Prowise screen in school that we have been trying out. We really enjoyed the cause and effect activities where we had to pop the bubbles and catch the moving shapes.
Indigo class have been making healthy soups this term. We worked together as a group to plan what kinds of soup we all liked. We visited the school garden to collect some home grown vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and leeks to use for our soup. Everyone had their favourite!
We visited the RAP (Reducing Accidents at Play) event at South Tyneside Fire Station. We were lucky enough to have a turn at sitting in the fire engine!! We participated in different workshops and learnt about how to stay safe at the beach, what to do if there is a gas leak and about how important it is not to accept sweets from strangers as they could be drugs.
