In year 4, in computing, we learnt how to be meteorologists. We made a weather station and from this we understood different measurement techniques for weather, both analogue and digital. We used computer-based data logging to automate the recording of some weather data. We also used spreadsheets to create charts analyse data, explore inconsistencies in data and make predictions.
The fun part was being weathermen - we presented the weather to the class, just like they do on telly.

In Reception this term we have been continuing our learning through play. The children are developing their independence and confidence to try out their own ideas and problem solve independently. 
We are learning about the world around us, expressing our thoughts and ideas through art, role play and investigation. We are also having fun practising our physical skills using a range of equipment and games.

Year 5 have had a great couple of days with visits from the Astrodome and Mr. Huxter who brought his virtual reality equipment into school.

On the 3rd February we were very lucky to have the Astrodome come into the school to complement our topic of out of this world. We found out about our universe and how it works. Some of the comments from the children were – “Wow,” “that was fantastic,” “I have never seen anything like that before” and “I have found out lots about our universe.”

Last Friday, Mr. Huxter came in with his VR equipment and we were able to experience roller coasters, bungee jumps and different rides from theme parks – it was great. Here are some of the pictures with the VR kit on.
