Here are some examples of their work:

Green Screen with Knowsley CLCs

Year 5 worked with Knowsley CLCs using Greenscreen to produce short news programmes reporting on what they had learnt in class about the Beowulf poem.

Google Expeditions

The children had a visit from Google Expeditions and were able to explore the landscape of Greece.

Yr 6 Computing Session

Year six had the opportunity to learn about our built environment and how it can help us understand so much about our history, culture and how buildings have shaped our society. We explored drawings/illustrations representing both 2D and 3D worlds. Working with Knowsley City Learning Centres the children used technology to help them bring their design ideas to life. The children used an app called Foldify to draw a house in 3D, they then printed their design out and created their 3D model. The children took their ideas a stage further by designing and building their house in Google Sketch Up, which is a 3D modelling software.  As you can see they had some amazing designs they were really proud of what they had produced….
