During Computing with Mr Baddhan, Year 1 Puffins have been tallying up the colours of their favourite toys. Before half term, the children brought in their toys and this week they’ve been looking at each of the toys and adding up the most popular colour.
The most popular toy colour was gold and the least favourite red.
They then used Purple Mash’s 2Count program to add data into a pictograph – see below for some examples of their work.
As part of today’s Computing lesson, Puffins brought some of their favourite teddy bears to take photographs of.
They learned that once photographs are taken, they are stored on the memory card. The process to transfer photographs from camera to a computer is to take the memory card out of the camera and insert into the computer.
Here are some of the photographs taken by the children of their cuddly toys. They will be labeling their photographs in next week’s lesson. Visit our blog next week to see how Puffins get on.
Year 1 Puffins continued their understanding of clear instructions when using Code for Life’s Rapid Router website.
Puffins worked through the levels as they programmed a van to move from one point to another using programming blocks.
The blocks were as follows:
– Move Forwards
– Move Backwards
– Turn Left
– Turn Right
The children came across various challenges including working out the correct turn to use (left or right). Some children did really well working this out however the others had to use a BeeBot to help them work out the correct direction.
The children were also introduced to a new Computing term called sequence. When programming, it is important to make sure that all the steps are presented in the correct order – this is sequence.
Here is an example of a real life sequence – in the correct order.
All week Puffins have been taking in part in lots of activities for Safer Internet Week. Today as part of circle time we read a story all about Digiduck who shares an embarrassing image on the internet of his friend Pig. We discussed what is important when sharing an image on the internet:
