Using control devices with Year 4!

 

The children of Year 4 have been putting BB-8 through his paces by controlling him through the maze of Sarlacc and programming BB-8 to blow up the Death Star using Tickle App. The force is strong with this class....

Learning about algorithms with Jambot


This term our Year 4 classes have been starting to learn about algorithms and variables. They have explored how to make a clear and precise algorithm, which are the lines of instructions for coding programs and machines. In this example, the children have been learning to code a jam sandwich making robot, they then wrote their algorithms on the whiteboards before creating a user manual for jambot using their algorithms.

The new curriculum is helping us to become gifted programmers! We graduate from the FloorBots we use in the infants, to Programming using Espresso coding, Kodu and Scratch.

You can learn to programme at home too using Sratch. It is free to use! Click here > Scratch Free Coding

Download this document to help you learn how to code with Scratch.

Our Year 3's and 4's have been learning to stay safe online. They have watched this safety video and have answered some very important questions. They now know how to be 'Internet Protectors!'

See the video here.

Guidance for Parents and Carers

Staying Safe Online

The safety of your children is very important to us and we would like to work with you, the parents and guardians, to help create awareness of the hidden dangers of internet mis-use. Children now have greater access to the internet through mobile phones and tablets, therefore we must monitor and guide their exposure to the internet carefully.

 

At Mount Carmel, we dis-courage children's use of social media (Facebook Snapchat, YouTube) and group messaging sites (Snapchat, Watsap and Istagram etc).

 

 Please take a look at the following weblinks to see how you and your child can use the internet safely. Also, you can have a look at how we keep your children safe at school by reading the Fair Use Policy on our Policy page.
