Year 1 – Home/School Computing

Summer Term 2

This half term you are going to look at different lessons which have been taken from the Teach Computing website. There are live chats for you and your parents happening daily on the website too if you are interested but must have an adult with you. All the information about these lessons can be found here:  https://teachcomputing.org/home-teaching/key-stage-1 

Lesson 1 – starting 8th June – Mini Missions

This activity is split into six computational thinking concepts: algorithms, abstraction,  evaluation, decomposition, patterns and logic. Each concept includes five activities to enable children to get to grips with these concepts.

Mini Missions

Lesson 2 – starting 15th June – Shopping Lists

In this activity, children will learn to identify the ingredients they need to make a cake and create a shopping list. In doing so, they develop their skills of abstraction. If you wish, you can also use the activity to develop their understanding of algorithms.

Shopping List_Instructions

Lesson 3 – starting 22nd June – Hand Jives

In this activity, your child/children will create hand clapping, hand tutting (see videos attached) or hand jive sequences of movements. Children break the sequence of actions down into parts and in so doing are decomposing. Children can link this idea to breaking problems down when creating computer programs such as animations or games.

hand_jive_activity

Lesson 4 – starting 29th June – Battleships

In this activity, your child/children will learn how to predict and analyse using the mini mission activities. Five activities are available including noughts & crosses, magic squares, boxes, triangles and bedroom battleships.

Battleships

Lesson 5 – starting 6th July – Evaluating

In this activity, your child/children will learn how to make judgements using the mini mission activities. Five activities are available including WWW, being a critic, my daily workout, a new healthy sandwich and being an engineer. (Page 3)

Evaluation Page 3

Lesson 6 – starting 13th July – Creating Algorithms

In this activity, your child/children will learn how to create algorithms by making steps and rules. Five activities are available including cooking, my amazing game, robotify me, timetable and teddy hunt. (Page 1)

Year 4 Podcasting

Year 4 have been exploring what makes a good podcast. They have listened to several podcasts on various themes. They recognise a podcast includes a variety of features like an introduction to who they are and what the podcast is all about.  It has jingles, music and sometimes sound effects.  This half term, children will be planning and creating their own podcasts using Audacity.

Year 3 Creating Animations

Year 3 have been looking at what makes a good animation. They have used ipads and stop imotion app to animate a stick person to complete different actions. They have been learning about onion skinning and slow movements make a smooth animation. Its important to work collaboratively when taking the images to ensure they get a good quality end product. They are in the process of planning their own animations based on a Roman theme.

Year 1 Creating Pictures

Year 1 have been focussing on exploring computer art programs and various tools they can use to get different effects. Firstly, they studied Mondrian and the use of line and fill tools to recreate one his pieces.

The children explored the paint brush tool and the colour palettes to draw a portrait of themselves. We discussed the differences between using a computer based art program compared to real life painting.
