Starting the New Year

As the children have now moved into their new year groups, they were asked to use our drawing packages to create an image of what they look like now.

Years 2 and 3 used 2Paint, a relatively simple program, to produce these pictures and Years 4, 5 and 6 used 2Paint A Picture, which has a more complex set of tools.

Year 6 Animation Awards

This year we, once again, held the White Rock Oscars. During their ICT lessons, year 6 children film, edit and add soundtracks to an animation which they have scripted. The particularly exciting parts happened this week when the screening took place and the children decided which films should receive awards. The categories were: best use of the animation software, best use of editing software, best soundtrack and the most sought after...best film! 

Awards were presented in a whole school assembly and the children really enjoyed watching the films which were shown.

Year 4 Logo

The year 4 classes have been exploring Logo in Purple Mash. They have learned how to use the repeat function to draw regular shapes, before writing procedures to make 'spiragraphs'. 

This has been a very successful topic. The children have all enjoyed creating these beautiful patterns and what they have learned will be used when they extend their knowledge of Scratch programming next year.
