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.

Children from all year groups took part in an anti – bullying assembly today, to discuss and consider what bullying is and what we can do as a school to prevent it.
Year 2 had a fantastic afternoon at St Lawrence Church. Revd Dr Waxddell engaged the children with stories about Jesus and answered the many interesting questions they had. The children loved exploring the church looking for artefacts and a sculpture which looked like Shrek! A big thank you to the parents who helped walk the children to the Church and back.
