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?
Great finish to the end of our second week back , we were joined by year three’s from St Joseph’s RC primary. Last time this class came to SICT they used the original Lego WeDo, this year we were using our new sets of WeDo2 in the morning we made Milo and got to grips with programming him and using the sensor block.
In the afternoon we used the guided project – Moon Base – you can see from the video highlights we were very pleased with the end results. A great of fun and learning.

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!
Today we had Ian Wilson delivering CPD, the focus for our day was using apps for programming. We looked decomposition of songs using a flow diagram (Steve Bunce) lots of hands on a range of apps from BeeBot, Daisy Dinosaur, ALEX & Scratch Jr to some newer ones we had not come across like The Foos, Run Marco, Kids n Code and a platform game app call Bloxels Builder.
In the afternoon we used Tickle to program a range of drones… great fun, sorry learning !
Today we had the pleasure of welcoming Spindle Point’s Year 6s. Their focus for their trip was using Minecraft as part of their learning and links with their Mayans topic.
Here are some of the highlights from their day.
We are really excited about one of our new education days – Minecraft in the Classroom!
This action packed education day will see your class, regardless of their ability, use Minecraft to work collaboratively towards an exciting common goal developing their team work and thinking skills.
Here are highlights from our first class experiencing one of these days, we think the focused looks on their faces and smiles say it all, who knew the Victorians could be so much fun!
