The year 6’s have been learning about different types of graphs. Here is an example of a video created using Explain Everything on an iPad. Well done to Nicholas and Loki for putting in star power effort to share your knowledge!
What do you think of their video?
Today we had fun problem solving using Sphero. The students had to work in small groups to create small courses using the following rules;
- At least one angle.
- No jumps.
- No more than 2 angles.
- Maximum of 2m of measuring tape.
- Work cooperatively and ensure everyone is included.
The students then had to work together to write code in ‘Lightning Lab‘ app to move the robots along the courses. The task was a lot harder than it looked, it involved a huge amount of trial and error. I was very impressed with the teamwork and resilience shown by everyone.
One group was successful at mastering 3 of the courses!
Have you used code to direct a Sphero?
What is the most challenging part of coding with Sphero?
This week the students used the fraction basic app on the iPads to help further develop their knowledge of using fractions. This free video app provides a quick and simple way for students to learn and understand the basics behind fractions.
6S can you tell me what you think of the app and what you learnt from using it?
Today the students worked in pairs on the bCyberwise app on the iPads. The students had to explore the Nubbin Castle while learning the following;
– how to use the internet safely
– how to protect personal information
– recognise a safe website
– to be positive and respectful online
