Computing school trips
We were fortunate to be invited to an E-Sports event at The Royal Engineer Museum last year, This gave the children who attended the opportunity to have one to one tuition of popular games from the Royal Engineer E-Sports team as well as a guided tour around the museum. Some of the children who attended were also interviewed for the local newspaper as well as media broadcasting company 'Ayozat'. Below are a few pictures from the event, which we hope we will be able to attend again in the future.
In school, we currently use Purple Mash to support our teaching of the computing curriculum. Every child has their own log in and password. Some skills such as 'coding' are now taught throughout a child's time at Primary School and are skills which can be practiced consistently.
Below are a list of activities on Purple Mash which you may want to practice in your own time. There are also many other resources available on Purple Mash to access at home.
https://www.purplemash.com/app/code/openended/freecodechimp - A free code area for Key Stage 1 children
https://www.purplemash.com/app/code/openended/freecodegibbon - A free code area for Lower Key stage 2 children
https://www.purplemash.com/app/code/openended/freecodegorilla - A free code area for Upper Key stage 2 children
https://www.purplemash.com/#app/tools/diy3d - A game design resource for children of all ages.
