Science - Thursday 8th February 2024
In Science today, we were finding out about how to separate different mixtures of materials. We learnt about filtration, magnetic attraction, sieving and evaporation. Have a look at some of our handy work below!
Computing - Wednesday 7th February
Today, we spent the whole day doing computing, to complete our project. We started the day by continuing to learn how to programme the crumbles and outputs, before planning and making our fair ground rides. The final part of the day was spent programming our crumbles to make our rides flash and spin! We were incredibly proud of our work and loved it when some of the other classes were able to come up and see it too!
Computing - Tuesday 15th January 2024
In computing today, we started our new unit, which is all about physical computing. We have been incredibly lucky to borrow some physical computing kit from the local computing hub and this afternoon we were able to explore it for the first time! First we explored the crumble controller and then learnt how to connect it up to a flashing LED (a sparkle). Then, using our programming skills, we learnt how to make the sparkle flash in different colours and at different speeds. We even managed to add an infinite loop so that it never stops flashing! We can't wait to carry on with this project. Watch this space for more content!
