Prep's Technology Week

Energy levels have been high in the Prep School all week as children have got hands-on with Technology.

The Prep School's special focus week on Technology has been a tremendous success. Special activities have taken place every day, encouraging children to dive in and discover technology.

The week kicked off with a QR code treasure hunt and children searched the school inside and out, tracking down the codes and scanning them with iPads. Food technology was another aspect explored; food is always close to the heart of the Prep School children, and they were delighted to get hands on in Home Ec baking delicious savoury muffins.

Highlights of the week have included a collaborative build of a Lego city. Children across the year groups built an enormous city from Lego which took up two classrooms, including houses, sports stadiums and a lighthouse. Pupils then used battery packs to wire up the city so it had light and a working railway.

Pupils also shot their own mini-movies using iMovie. Year 6 were the first group to get to grips with iMovie, and then taught Years 3 and 4 how to use it. Year 3 and 4 in the meantime had been busy script-writing, and the year groups then came together to stage and film their own Nativity movies.

The week rounded off with a visit from Cyclone Works, who brought with them a 'Smoothie Bike'. Cycling on the bike powers a dynamo which in turn generates electricity for a blender. Pupils enjoyed powering up and producing their own delicious smoothies. Things got competitive over on a different bike, rigged up to fire balls at a set of nine-pins. With house points at stake, all pupils pedalled furiously!

A great week with lots of learning for the children who have clearly been captivated by their special studies. Plenty of additional pictures are online on our Facebook page.
