Year 5 are currently using Scratch to develop their programming skills. This software can be downloaded free of charge. We are currently using the 1.4 version. We would love to see any games created at home by our budding game developers.
Our main focus this term is the Victorians. In literacy we have studied some of the extracts from the Diary of Queen Victoria, looked at the classic works of Charles Dickens and Street Child by Bertie Doherty. In IT we have been creating our own graphical models of Victorian modes of transport.
