Year 5 Remarkable RE




This week in Year 5 we had looked at Religious Rituals in RE. In particular we had looked at Christianity and the ritual of baptism, although we did get to discuss some other rituals we have all experienced from different religions. An example of this was Zakat (The second pillar of Islam) and how there is the ritual of giving for charity. We had also looked into what the bible say's about baptism and how Christians use this as a source of wisdom and a teaching code for living. 
We had used Reflectiveness in making links back to previous learning and our Reciprocity value for sharing our own experiences of rituals we may have seen such as weddings, funerals and christenings.

Cracking Computing in Year 6

 






Year 6 have been identifying variables in a program and exploring the impact to a game if a variable was changed by name or by value. We used a sport that we love to explore this further... Football!

The children used the worlds largest coding community- Scratch- to problem solve a game where values wouldn't change on the scoreboard. They also created their own scoreboard for football teams of their choice and created their own clicking battle game.



"I'm going to decrease the score variable for Tottenham- each goal will be minus 1!" - Aimee in Lime

"We've created our own game- it's just like cookie clicker but better." - David in Oak
