    Mrs. Lykon (like the camera brand Nikon but with an L!)

    In 6th Grade Science this week we learned about

    electromagnetic waves, specifically light waves and

    sound waves. Students investigated the sounds that

    straws of various lengths make. After break we will move on to studying forces and motion!

    The STEM & 6th Grade Science classroom needs pencils and

    paper towels! Thank you! : )

    Students in STEM finished their “Geometrocity” design and building project.

    Check out some of their work below!

    Computing — Mrs Bradbury

    Welcome to Computing, 6th Grade have been practicing the use of ‘keypress’ commands , examples included space down, left down, right down etc.

    The students have completed their end of chapter assessment project, where they have created interactive greeting cards, which demonstrate all the skills they have learned during the unit. The card includes a back- ground, moving sprites, text and at least one user interaction. Great work 6th Grade.

    8th Grade have started to use Event Driven Pro- gramming this week.

    We have learned about creating buttons, and asso- ciating these with events, so that when a button is clicked and event happens, for example when a button is clicked another screen is displayed.

    The students have demonstrated their under- standing of this by creating a 4 screen interactive app, where they have used images, text, designed and created buttons, programmed events and add- ed sounds. Well done 8th grade, amazing work !!

    The very first Apple logo featured Sir Isaac Newton sitting underneath a tree, with an apple about to hit his head.
