We even enjoyed our...

Games Unit – Football

Currently we are working on developing our footwork with different skills in dribbling passing and shooting skill. The next 6 week are going to be pretty fun where we are going...

As the children wrote their ordered instructions in their scripts, they’re making use of sequence in programs. Their projects combine graphics, text and sound, which are various forms of output. The children were encouraged to think through the steps of their animation carefully,...

In year 3 we have been learning about leisure activities. We created a short questionnaire to find out what people do “Qu’est-ce que tu fais comme sport? Qu’est-ce que tu fais comme loisirs? Qu’est-ce que tu fais comme musique?”. We went around school this morning and interviewed children and adults. Then we worked as a all class to put it together in sentences. Here is what we find out. “Les enfants de year 3 font de la natation et de l’athlétisme....
