Year 5's Crumble Coding Wearable Tech Workshop!

Year 5 enjoyed their Crumble Coding workshop today!  Their aim was to make a piece of wearable tech to link to their rainforest topic.  They used coding to create algorithms to light different colours, for varying durations.  After all their hard work, they paraded their creations down a "catwalk", whilst explaining the purpose of their hats or belts.  The children had some fantastic ideas, ranging from warning that a dangerous animal is close, to sending out distress signals, as well as lighting up the forest floor to seek out rainforest animals.  Dom and Sue, the instructors, were amazed

Spy Day in Year 5!

Spy Day finally arrived in Year 5 and the class came to school disguised in their amazing spy outfits! They looked brilliant!  The morning was spent finding clues, cracking codes, practising spy moves, such as the "brush past", and making the spy gadgets that they'd designed.  Add to this some invisible writing and watching the film of their class text "Stormbreaker",  an action packed and fun day was had by all!   Well done Year 5!  Mrs Blomeley (aka Agent Blomovich!)
