Just a quick reminder that the Computing Workshops with Mr Carter are set to start this Thursday morning at 9am. There are still a few places left to fill, so if you would like to come along, sign up at the office.
To see what Year 6 have been doing this half term, please click on the image below to visit the Computing Portfolio. Can you explain what you have learnt about networks during the unit?Which Computing skills you used do you feel you need to improve? Why?
In this unit, pupils were asked to transfer the physical into the virtual. Children needed to solve challenges around construction of shapes and then transfer that into a 3D virtual space. The children needed maths skills to convert measurements and work out area. When do you think you might use these skills again?What skills did […]
In this unit, the children work with example programs with bugs. They explain how the scripts work, finding and correcting errors in them, and explore creative ways of improving them. The children learn to recognise some common types of programming error, and practise solving problems through logical thinking. When do you think you might use […]
In this unit pupils will use emails to ask questions. Before this can happen, children need to be aware of e-safety when using emails. What information should and should not be shared. Children will learn how log in, send and reply to emails then be asked to gather information using their questioning skills. Extensions can be […]
In this unit pupils learn how about the language of movement and how to control Beebots. Children begin by learning the language that they will need: forwards, backwards, left, right and turn. They then start to apply this language to algorithms they program into the Beebots.Pupils apply their understanding on apps, physical bots and even […]
For the first time at BH, children have had discrete Computing lessons. This is because of our continued drive to give children the skills they need to succeed in the modern world. This term, pupils have used iPads to practise their handwriting and started to use laptops to develop typing skills. They have been superb!
What a truly Wonderful Winter Wonderland visit we have had. Please watch and share the video with friends and family and tell them all about the fantastic things we did.
There are a number of initiatives now that allow people to purchase close to end of life food… In some cases, it might not even cost a penny. Two apps are available to download where you will be able to browse deals for food. Simply download and start searching.Visit their sites to download the apps:Too […]
THEY’RE BACK! After last years success and fantastic feedback from parents, Mr Carter will be running workshops for parents to help them with computing skills, online safety and supporting your children. The sessions will commence on Thursday 16 January 2020 (Spring 1), and run for 5 weeks. If you are interested in attending, please visit […]

This term in Computing, Year 6 have been learning how to use Book Creator to make Ebooks about Online Safety. Children had to make their book for either a parent or younger children in Broad Heath.
This term in Computing, Year 6 have been making booklets to help children and parents learn about Online Safety. Here are a couple of examples. Please read them and use them to help your own child’s safety online.
This week in Reception Blue, children have been learning about the capital letter for their name. Children were given their letter to trace over, then they had a go on their own. I was amazed by how good you all were!!!
This week in Reception Red, children have been learning about the capital letter for their name. Children were given their letter to trace over, then they had a go on their own. I was amazed by how good you all were!!!
This week in Reception White, children have been learning about the capital letter for their name. Children were given their letter to trace over, then they had a go on their own. I was amazed by how good you all were!!!
First the children revisited their learning about algorithms from Year 1 and delved even deeper into them. They even learnt a magic trick to help them understand that algorithms complete tasks using step-by-step commands. Then children started to turn algorithms into programs using block code. They used previous knowledge of BeeBot programs and applied them […]
2 Blue have been learning a poem today. They were asked to learn the poem using picture clues, then recite the poem from memory… if they could! Here are the children’s performances:
In computing, we have been retelling an adventure story called ‘Back to Earth with a Bump’.Now, you will need to write your own adventure stories based on the sets of pictures below. This is your chance to be creative and develop your own story. REMEMBER: You need to write with the same quality as in […]
This week in Science, 6 White watched Mr Carter and Mrs Janjua dissect a lamb’s heart. This was part of their learning about the circulatory system. Please see the video and pictures. As your challenge 6 White, can you explain the journey of the blood through the heart? This diagram might help you.
This term in Computing, you will be making a book about online safety. Your book should be aimed at an age group, so the way it looks and the language you use needs to reflect that. This shows an awareness of audience. For your information, you will need to do some research: GroomingOnline SafetyAdvice for […]
The very kind people at Waterstones Book Shop have donated these fantastic books to the school. Everyone at the school thanks them for their generosity.
What a year the you have had in Computing. You have all made super progress and completed lots of challenges. The skills you have learnt this year will be useful in all walks of life. This term, you have been Game Designing and produced some really creative games. What is the most valuable skill you […]
Thank you to Year 3 for being a delight to teach Computing to this year. You have all made great progress and learnt some really important skills that you will need in your future. This term, you have been debugging. I hope you will be able to transfer the processes your have learnt to all […]
Year 2 have done some wonderful things this year. This term, they have learnt how to research and to use Google Slides. All of these skills will stand them in good stead for their learning for all subjects in the future. What is the most valuable skill you have learnt in Computing this year?
