Playing a game!

It was a beautiful morning on Thursday so we decided to take our hot seating lesson outside. In English we have been looking at The Wreck of the Zanzibar – today we were hot seating one of the characters (Billy) who experiences a ship wreck. 

In art today Willow were bending wire to form the shape for their Giacometti inspired sculptures. It was tricky to get the wire cut and to bend it so they did really well. We can’t wait to see the finished product!

Willow had their first Sonic Pi lesson in ICT today. We focused on two commands and debugging. Watch the videos below for their simple pieces of programmed music.
