Tanners Wood join in with Hour Of Code week

Children throughout the school have enjoyed taking part in the National Hour Of Code this week. The initiative encourages children to become coders and problem solvers. The Year 5 children have enjoyed a range of activities with our volunteer computing expert, Simon Devon, which included coding robots and Microbits. Children in our school coding club also enjoyed a challenging coding session this week which they proudly demonstrated to their parents after the club, which turned into a mini robot wars episode in our school hall!

EYFS and KS1 also enjoyed learning how to Code using Osmo the iPad educational gaming accessory, which was expertly demonstrated by some of our Year 4 children. Our Year 6 children will also be taking part in a collaborative coding challenge this Friday, with a group of Year 7 and 8 secondary school children, via Skype in our computing suite.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with new technology this week and have found it exciting and fun. Here are some photos of their learning.

Festive Fir!

We have been looking at explanations in English. We have talked about how Santa delivers all our presents and how he gets his sleigh to fly….its all very complicated!! We are all ready for Christmas and our tree is looking fabulous.

Tanners Football Match

A huge well done to Tanners Football team who beat Abbots Langley School 4 – 2 in a thrilling game. The ball went up and down the pitch and many good shots saved by Luca, who was man of the match! 

Excellent displays of football from all the boys – Luca, Joe, Ben Ch, Ben Cr, Harry, Arthur, Connor and Dean. It was really enjoyable to watch. 

The corner before the spectacular 4th goal.

Amazing tackling!

A fab save by Luca!

Rapid fire 6Ts cricket!

Last Thursday, Y3/4 went to Rickmansworth school to play in the rapid fire 6Ts tournament. In our first game we were so super excited and eager to win we kept running into each other! However, we calmed down in the second game and scored many 4run points. Well done Tanners!! The game is similar to cricket but a lot faster.

There are 6 tees with tennis balls and Otto and Charlie hit them with perfection through the yellow cones. Super score!

Mia and Lily running as fast as they can to score more points.

After each pair had a turn at batting and had run between the stumps, it was our turn to field. We had an organised routine to collect balls,tees and spots.

We really enjoyed this tournament, well played to Otto, Chase, Charlie, Mia, Lily, Luke and Theo. We did really well to come 4th out of 8 teams.
