Coding

The last day of term was wrapped around coding. We explored Spheros, robots that you can program using codes. Class 6 used their skills to make their Spheros to move in a circle, a square and then decode and make a rectangle. We were excited to see our work in action.

Have you code a robot?

In maths we have been learning about shapes and symmetry. We used geoboards to make shapes and then we had to identify how many lines of symmetry they had, if any! It was lots of fun!

Stopwatch investigation

Class 6 have been learning all about the time this week. In today’s lesson we carried out a stopwatch investigation, using the iPads to time each other. We also  had to work out analogue and digital times and put them in the right order. There was lots of new learning; 24 hour clocks, AM and PM and Roman numerals!

What did you learn about telling the time?

Do you have any handy hints to help us get even better?

It was fun doing the arrays because it was hard a bit and easy a bit. We eventually understood it. Green group went outside and needed to find leaves to make an ebook. Red group needed to use arrays to help multiply multiples of 10. What questions can you see in these arrays?
