We had a busy day planned, updates on our SLAs, after school club provision and education days. Discussed the launch of our new digital leaders workshops and in a Teach Meet style we share what works well, which included Class Dojo, code it, hour of hour minecraft resource.
We had Henry Platten from eCadets showing the delegates how eCadets can support schools in developing digital leaders support their online safety provision.
In the afternoon we had hands on workshops using Minecraft and looked at how it can enhance learning and the new InOBot from TTS . IMG_2177

Highlights from todays school visit. We were working with the reception class, we had a fun packed afternoon, a carousel of computing activities.
We used direction cards to plan the route for our BlueBots, we logged on to Purplemash and used 2Go, we used Kodable and BlueBot app and we had great fun with the remote control cars.
We think the adults had as much fun as the children!
This is the third year Online Safety competition ran for our Bolton schools linked to #SID17

Stand back everyone!
Be prepare for year3 bloggers at Brownlow Fold.
Today saw the children using their class blog for the first time – they shared their topic learning all about the Egyptians they particularly like the mummification process!
They can not wait to share their very best writing with the whole wide world. Can you leave a comment of encouragement?
We were asked to go into Queensbridge to work with their year6’s, looking at how to use scratch to begin to program their multiple choice online safety quizzes. As it was Safer Internet Day #SID17 part of the morning session was use to plan possible question and discuss answers.
Hopefully some of these will be finished in time to enter our competition.
Please visit Brownlow Fold year5s blog
and show them that blogs are a powerful
tool for writing and can reach all over
the world 🌎
It was all about Computing in Year 3 at Holy Infants yesterday.
Year 3 learnt lots of tricky technical words such as algorithm, debugging and sprite. Using Purplemash the pupils learnt how to make fish move, make snails race and even create giant or tiny snails at a moment’s notice! Mr Eccles thought he’d seen a six pack of sprites in Asda, but apparently that’s a different thing!
