Makey Makey kit

Makey Makey kit

Over Easter, we ordered a ‘Makey Makey’ kit for the ICT room.

There are many ways this can be used in the new computing curriculum, from fruit keyboards to ‘People Pacman controllers’.

If it conducts electricity and completes the circuit, it will work. Watch this space!!!

flashcards

We recently discovered Augmented Reality. The children went on a flashcard hunt, discovering animals hidden on letters of the alphabet. They also scanned pictures with the String app in the ICT room to enjoy some more animations.

The children coloured in a special picture, and then using the iPad app ColAr Mix, turned it into a 3D animation. They loved it!
