Computing at Intack Primary School
We are the Computing Leads at Intack..
Mrs Makda teaches Computing in Key Stage 1 and
Mrs McMillan teaches Computing in Key Stage 2
We are passionate about our subject and enjoy using ICT where ever we can.
We make our lessons practical and exciting, but sometimes we might not always use computers!
Purple Mash is a website used throughout the school to enhance learning across all subject areas. All children have their own login and password to enable them to use the website at home. It features a range of activities and resources designed to complement the subjects studied in school. Children can save their work online which can then be shared in school. Please take a look!
Latest Computing Work!
We are still working really hard in our computing lessons. Have a look and see what we have been doing this term - Summer 2019!
Spring Term 2018
This half term we have been learning about different animals. In computing we have been learning how to add labels to photographs of animals in PowerPoint. We tried our very best to spell some of the words by ourselves. Here is some of our work!
Year 3 British Values - The Royal Family.
Watch some of our mini movies about the British Royal Family, made by children in Year 3!
Year 3 Computing National Curriculum
- design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
- use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
- use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
Year 3 have had enormous fun using Scratch 2 to make their own Egyptian Mummy Maze Game, to link with their History topic of “Ancient Egypt”. The object of the game is to guide the Mummy through the maze without touching the sides. If you touch the sides, the Mummy has to start all over again!
After designing the Mummy and the maze, Year 3 had to write algorithms to make the Mummy move, make the Mummy turn and make the Mummy start again when it touched the sides.
Some children even managed to make harder levels of the game to make their game more challenging!
Year 3 also evaluated each other’s games and assessed their own learning.
See below for some screenshots of what the Year 3 Mummy Maze games looked like!
Year 5 - PowerPoint and UK Landmarks
In Year 5 the children researched famous UK landmarks. They had to identify them, find their location and find out a fact about them. They used safer searching weblinks on our school website.
