Each year Bolton SICT run an Online Safety Competition for all our schools, once again we had a fabulous response from all the schools that entered – just glad the curriculum team are not on the judging panel 🙂
Well done to our Online Safety Competition Winners
Programming category – Beaumont Primary School
Media category– The Valley Primary School
Art & DT category – Sunning Hill Primary School – their art work can be seen on our displays in our training rooms, as well as some of the other schools.
Remember, put next year’s date in your diary for #SID19 – Tuesday 5th February 2019

It was lovely to see the yr3s from St Joseph’s this week, what a busy day building and programming. We worked collaboratively, learnt new computing vocabulary, we learnt about the coding blocks and what their job was when we used them in our programs.
Britannica has now been in our schools for six months, the feedback from teachers and pupils has been really positive. To celebrate this and to encourage more use across all our schools, we are launching this Spring’s half term competition.
Encourage your students to dig deeper and test their knowledge via Britannica’s Bolton Quiz #BritannicaBQuiz. We’re offering the chance for four lucky entrants to each win £25 worth of Amazon vouchers. All students need to do is to answer the ten questions correctly to enter the draw. The Quiz is suitable for all levels, from KS1 to KS4, and it will test them on different subjects, all available in Britannica School.
The closing date is Thursday 29th March and the winners of each Key Stage will be notified first week back after the Easter holidays.

A great way to finish the term with a trip which involves Lego! The focus for the day was to use Lego WeDo2 to build a range of mini robots each having a particular learning focus, such as how to program the motor ,speed, distant sensor. We then built Milo and programmed him to go for a particular distance and then reverse.
In the afternoon, our challenge was to build a moon base buggy that we then programmed to move objects.
A quote from one of the pupils… ” the best trip ever!”
