Year 6 with BBC Microbits

During term 2, Year 6 made robots using the BBC Microbit. The children used their DT, coding and teamwork skills to design, make and code their robots in small groups. We were very lucky to have some support from the Digital School House team at New College. Whilst at New College, the children learned all of the amazing things the Microbit could do which inspired them to create their unique designs. Our finished robots were completed to a high standard with lots of funky and interesting designs.

Cross Country 2016- Lydiard Park Academy

Several children from Year 3 up to Year 6 went to Lydiard Park Academy to take part in the Annual Cross Country Competition, where the children run a mile around the grounds of the school and part of Lydiard Park. All the teams performed brilliantly but most notable were the performances of the Year 3/4 Boys who finished in 3rd place overall and the Year 5/6 Girls team who finished as the champions for Swindon.

Well done everyone though!
