P.E - 2023
Play Leaders - Summer 1 2023
"I enjoy playleading as I get to have fun, help other children and get children more active. My role as a playleader is to get children to move around and be more confident. My role builds confidence and helps children become active through play. If I could change my role as a play leader, I would be given one group of children each term so I could get to know them well. To be a good play leader, you need to be respectful, confident, be good at listening and have leadership skills." Year 5 and 6 play leaders.

Computing (March 2023)
We love computers, we enjoy playing games
We used the Beebots and made them move to where we wanted them to
We remember scanning people with the X-Ray in Nursery
It is very helpful for the modern day, I got confused at the start but wasn't confused by the end
You need to keep your password safe otherwise people would be able to go on your account
Using the VRs made it seem like I was really there
Being on a computer is the main thing I like about school, Computing makes me feel relaxed
I loved creating the maze game because you didn’t need to control it and it was a great experience
When we used the VRs you could see back in time
My favourite thing has been the PowerPoints because we love creating them, we got to include pictures, format them and it we didn’t get confused.
