We went over an old favourite of Year 6 today, Google Sketch Up. The children were making Egyptian Pyramids as part of their topic on The Egyptians. Some even tried to make a Sphinx! Check out their efforts below...

Using Databases with Y4 (29th April 2015)

Today, Year 4 were using the databases (2Investigate) that they created last week, to answer a set of questions about the class. I gave them questions related to the data they collected and inputted. Some questions were straight forward e.g. How many boys? and some required the children to be more selective in their search e.g. How many 9 year old, boys, have blue eyes. The children used a range of tools to sort, arrange, group and find answers to the questions successfully.

Robots with Cedars and Willows (27th/28th April 2015)

We discussed use of technology last week in ICT and this week looked at another way in which technology is used, Robots. The children discovered that Robots are another form of technology (machines or devices that help us do things) that are really useful. Look at some of the reasons why Robots might be used...

Mind Mapping with Willow Class (21st April 2015)

Today we were using the free demo of Popplet to create a mind map using ICT. We discussed what technology was: 'Machines and devices that help people do things'.

This prompted a discussion of different devices and machines in and around our school e.g. computer, photocopier, CD player.... and then technology beyond our school. The children had lots of ideas and presented these as mind maps. Take a look at the vast range of technology we thought of!

 

Popplet Lite is a free, easy to use app for creating lovely Mind Maps.
