Year 1 had another exciting computing session with Mrs Jordan this week. She introduced them to a robot called Code-a-pillar.
The children started off with a 'tinkering' session - trying to work out how the robot worked. They then had to programme the robot to make it do given movements.
Year 1 have been focusing on 3D shape this week. They have been naming 3D shapes and sorting them into groups.
They enjoyed watching Jack Hartman's video on 3D shape.
The children then went on a 3D shape hunt!
Year one children worked well together in the forest this week, building cars and dens, making mud pies, climbing trees and working well as a team. One child found success in a completing a creation they had worked hard on over the past few weeks, showing us how perserverance pays off. A butterfly stopped by to admire his creation.
A tournament was planned to be held at Our Lady's on Thursday 26th April. Unfortunately 2 teams had to pull out which means St Stephen's and Our Lady's are through to the final next week.
Thank you to all our supporters who stayed our team on, and our CARITAS team who provided refreshments for both teams.
