Exploring Purple Mash.
I can access 2Dos: I can search PM to find resources: I can navigate the different sections of PM: I can use drawing tools
Cdn created a new look for one of their Transport Adventure Characters using 2Design&Make.
Unit 1.7 - Coding
I can say what a block of code is: I can design a simple program using 2Code: I can design a background and add a character using Design Mode; I can use Collision Detection: I can add a sound: I can save my work
Cdn used 2Code Chimp to learn how to select code blocks to achieve a specific effect. They then moved on to design their own background and add a character to their program, following which they created a simple program to move their character.
Unit 1.2 & 1.3 - Sorting and Pictograms
The children learnt how to sort objects using a variety of criteria by playing some of the sorting games on Purple Mash. They then went on to learn how to create Pictograms, gathering, representing and interpreting simple data.
Here are Blossom class having some Christmas fun using the painting apps on Purple Mash.
Unit 1.8 - Spreadsheets
This half term the children will be learning how to use spreadsheets. They will learn how to change the colour of the cells, add images & digits and how to lock and unlock cells.
Their Adventure is all about pirates this half term so they will use the skills they have learnt to create a treasure map.
This half term the children are learning about different types of technology, both in and out of school, and the ways in which we can use technology to help us in our daily lives.
We went exploring through school to see which types of technology we use at school, and what we use them for. We found loads!
The children have also started to learn how to use spreadsheets. They have learnt how to colour cells, insert images, words and digits in addition to how spreadsheets can be used to carry out calculations.
This half term the children’s Adventure has taken them under the ocean to meet lots of new creatures.
They have used 2Paint a Picture to create some beautiful coral reef digital artwork using the Pointillism method of painting.
They have also been learning about how to care for the environment and the importance of reducing, re-using and recycling rubbish.
They made a digital poster to encourage others to be more environmentally friendly.
Welcome back everyone to another new year at Westwood!
We’ve planned lots of exciting and fun activities for the children in their Computing lessons, which we are sure they’ll really enjoy and learn lots from.
This half term our Blossom children will be introduced to the KS1 activities on Purple Mash.
We will be focusing on increasing their confidence and independence in logging in, navigating the site and saving their work. They will also be learning how to use the 2Go app as an introduction to coding.
