How is Our School Connected?

In Computing, we explored the both wired and wireless connections around us using our knowledge of what we’ve learned this term. We created our own computer network on our tables and demonstrated how information transfers across networks via wires and how a wireless access point connects even more to the network.

Hidden Figures in Black History Workshop

We had an exciting day exploring Black History in assembly, following by a fantastic workshop that focused on lesser-known or ‘hidden figures’ in Black British History.

Thank you Paige for such an informative session. Year 3 were so excited to share their newfound knowledge when we went back to our class!

Are there any other ‘Hidden Figures’ that you could find out about? Research about them or the people we talked about today and bring in the information on a poster to share with the class!

How are digital devices connected & how do we use them?

This week in Computing, we explored connections and networks, learning about how computers and other devices send messages to one another. We then compared using a digital device to a non-digital device for activities such as writing and drawing. Some of us found it particularly tricky to fill a piece of paper with one colour, while our partner had already filled it in with one click! Meanwhile, some of our writers felt like they had more freedom with their pencil than when using a keyboard.

Which method did you prefer for your activity and why?

Stone Age Discoveries!

Year 3 travelled back over two and a half million years into the Stone Age this afternoon!

We read ‘The First Drawing’ before looking at photos of cave paintings to inspire our own drawings and used crayons to recreate the images we saw. We were very excited to start our History topic!

What would you like to learn about about the Stone Age this term?
