Year 2 have been exploring the keyboard as an input device. They have made their own keyboards and have explored different keys on the keyboard. Now they are practising their skills here:
Year 4 took a journey around school to identify features on a school network. We found:
Wireless Access Points
In the sports hall we then modelled this network with cards and string to show all the connections. The children then drew their own diagrams of a school newtork.
Year 3 have been looking at Computer Components. They began by playing a Memory Game, matching pairs of cards to identify components in or on a computer. The children then had to sort these into two groups, which are Hardware and which are Software.
We then took our knowledge of hardware components to try and identify them inside an actual computer.
