Creating computer games

As part of their Computing learning for Autumn 2, Year 6 explored how to create their own games. They investigated how to create a times table game and a racing game. Although many pupils started off by finding lots of errors in their programme, they were able to test and debug their scratch coding. They showed perseverance and worked collaboratively.

It was a fun and challenging session. What do you learn from creating your own games Year 6?


Mendel Ice Skating Reward

As a reward for their powerful and creative anti-bullying video which sent out a strong message, Mendel class went ice skating today at the Tower of London.

Although many of the class started off by holding onto the side of the rink, by the end of the session everyone had let go and the children were skating around independently. The pupils demonstrated high levels of resilience by not giving up and also superb collaboration by supporting each other and by (literally) lending a hand to one another.

What a fantastic afternoon we had Mendel class! What made you proud of yourself today?
