Lego Programming Day
Last Monday, (28.1.19) Class 4 had a very exciting morning with Lego.
The children were in high spirits when they saw the boxes of Lego and laptops waiting for them as they came into class.
The class worked on their programming skills using Scratch Coding. They learnt lots of new skills and were engrossed all the time.
After break the groups were asked to build a pair of Lego birds. These birds needed to spin! Wow, what a challenge!
By following step by step instructions very carefully, all the groups managed to build and program their birds to work.
Well done Class 4, lots of Topaz and emerald power were on show.
On Thursday last week Class 4 went to Bristol Aquarium as part of their class topic, Blue Abyss.
They had a lovely day walking around looking and learning about the creatures and plant life that live in the sea /oceans around the world.
One very busy day had by all!
Our Stratton key values are: Friendship, Respect, Responsibility, Peace and Truthfulness. Out of the many Christian values these were selected by the children, staff, parents and governors as our key values for school life.
Our home school value this term is compassion.
It is important that our Christian Values are evident and encouraged in our daily lives within our school community. In recognition of children who show responsibility, respect, friendship, who are at peace or truthful, we now have a "values tree" where their photo will be placed. The tree, in the school hall, has colour coded leaves representing our chosen key Christian Values. When a child is spotted by a member of our school community to be demonstrating one of the Values, their photo will go on the appropriate colour leaf in celebration.
