Next Weeks Y5 Scratch Video

Digital Learning Competition!!!

Hi everyone,

I have decided on the winners of the competition. It was an incredibly difficult decision as there were lots of great entries and you should be proud of your work. Everyone, who entered, has received a purple form and they can come and help out in the Techno Zone with the Techno Teams when they come down to work on new technology every now and then.

However, the winners are:

Alvaro in 6D for his fantastic Lego stop/start animation, which must have taken lots of patience and perseverance.

Carlos in 5D for 2 entertaining games he created using the Hopscotch app.

Raphy in 5C for creating 2 iMovies, showing lots of enthusiasm and interest.

Nuria in 5A for interestingly  creating an instructional Keynote on how to make Keynotes (and for trying to use Prezi for presentations). There were lots of fabulous Keynotes, I especially liked the one about Liverpool, but I gave it to Nuria as it was very educational.

Claudia, Lorena and Blanca for an iMovie about Juliane Koepcke, who they had been learning about in their rain forest topic this term. There was lots of effort put into it and some great editing.

As I said above, if the winners can’t come and help me with Minecraft, the 3D printer, the Microbits etc, then the other children who entered can come and investigate the new technology we have, but the children above have priority.

I would also like to give a massive thank you to  Y5C and Ms Shepherd – who also got a class purple form – as they had so many entries into the competition. Those children can definitely come and help me in the Techno Zone, they are so enthusiastic!

I will post these examples  very shortly.

Here is a video I made last year for moving another sprite around. Hope it is useful.

Blog Online Again!

Hi everyone,

Sorry about the blog not working for the last week or so. Hopefully it’s working well now. Some of the recent comments that you made may not have been posted I’m afraid.

Look at the new 3D printer making something for the Y6 movie project!  A massive thanks to Mr Robleh in Secondary for setting up the printer. Now he just has to teach me how to use it…


The 3D Printer Has Arrived!

Here is the printer. Now, here is a little test for you. Can you see what has printed on the bottom photo? Could this be real? Let me know your thoughts…

Competition Update!

Hi all,

As an added incentive for you to create something digital (movie, game, iBook, presentation etc) for the competition we have bought 5 Minecraft Education licences and a brand new 3D printer!!! The top 5 will get to come in at break/lunch and investigate the Minecraft and also design a 3D image to print out!!!

So get creative. I will give you extra time. Now the closing date will be next Monday (13/3). Thanks to all the pupils that have already added work so far.

Y5 Week 2 Scratch – Adding Backgrounds


Here is the latest video. Look out for a question popping up in the top right corner.

Look at Google’s New Robot!

Recommended App – Y5


Pyonkee  is very similar to Scratch for your iPad. I feel that it is better to use it on a Mac or PC – but lots of you may not have access to one. Hope you have fun! I’m really enjoying doing Scratch with you this week by the way. Don’t forget to watch the videos for next weeks lessons this weekend.
