Acquisition of knowledge and skills

Debugging a program 


The children have been looking at the computer programing language of code. They have learnt how computer programmers around the world use lines of code to create the computer programs, software and apps that we use almost everyday. 


When there is a problem with the code someone has written, the program will not run. This is called a bug. So, before the children move on to writing their own code and making their own games, they have acquired the skill of reading code and checking for bugs. This process is called debugging.


"I really enjoyed that, when I successfully debugged the program, I was awarded gems. I want to keep going and see how many gems I can win." - Dan H


"I am looking forward to writing my own code. I wonder if I could create an app when I grow up?"- Scarlett M

Creating a digital presentation on the legacy of the Ancient Greeks

Year 4 have been learning how to use the 'Clips' app to create a digital presentation on the legacy of the Ancient Greeks. The children used many skills including filming, adding effects and then they learnt how to edit their presentations until they were happy. Excellent work Year 4!

Digital Literacy - Education and democracy in Ancient Greece

Year 4 pupils have been developing their digital literacy skills by learning how to create and save a Microsoft Word document. 


After logging into their accounts, pupils learnt how to create a new document and write a bullet point list. Some children even learnt to change the font, size and colour of their text! Once completed the children were able to  save their work in their class folders on the schools shared drive. 


'I had trouble understanding how to start a new bullet point but after asking for support I now know how to use the enter key.' - Lilly


'I use a laptop at home but I don't often use Microsoft Word so I really enjoyed learning new skills. My favourite part was making my text red.' - Conagh
