Use the left and right arrows to learn more about our class.
Our topic for this term is Can You Switch It On?
Out topic for this half term is all about electricity, energy and power sources and how this has affected technology and the way we live today.
We’ll make a Skype call, harnessing the power of technology to ask and answer questions on screen. Throughout the project, we’ll use a wide variety of equipment. Digital cameras will help us to record the beauty of our local environment, computers and tablets will be used to record audio stories, and we’ll also use a keyboard, mouse and PC to write and draw.
We’ll use a variety of software and explore paint packages to create Jackson Pollock-style pictures.
Our programming skills will improve when we use commands to move robots around the floor, and we’ll use tablets to scan QR codes to inspire our building work. We will compare technology from the past to the technology we have today.
At the end of the project, we’ll read storybooks that will help us to understand e-safety messages and remind us that it is sometimes important to switch off technology and have fun with our friends and families. We’ll also invite you to our ‘Terrific Technology Show’ to discuss our experiences and inventions.
