Statement of Intent:
Technology and the world – During Computing lessons, the children have been exploring technology, and how it is used in the world around us. They have used the lap-tops to improve their typing skills and they have learned to use a mouse with greater control.
IT across the curriculum – The children have also enjoyed using the iPads to support their learning. In Literacy, they have accessed phonics games and Oxford Reading Tree. In maths, the children have used a range of websites to improve their understanding of number.
IT across the curriculum – The children have been using the iPads to support their learning in Literacy, by accessing Oxford Reading Tree. In maths, the children have visited the Topmarks website to practice their bonds to 10 and addition skills. During computing lessons, the children have been exploring the uses of IT and how it is used in the world around us.
Scratch – The children have focused on using the computer programme ‘Scratch’ this half term. They worked in partners to create an animation that moved characters to create a scene. The children used Scratch Junior and once they got the hang of this, moved onto the most recent version of Scratch on the laptops.
Prodigy game – We have started to play a new maths game at home and at school called Prodigy. We have little cartoon characters so we can practice lots of maths skills playing the game.
