Pupil voice on Computing

Teddy (Year 2): I like pressing all the buttons on scratch which makes your person move around.  We have made a title page for our presentations.
Hannah (Year 2): I like going on the apps like Phonics play which helps you to learn your sounds. On PowerPoints we have been writing about our learning in Geography. It is fun typing and adding pictures. 

Thomas (Year 3): I really like how you can create stuff like computer-generated characters. I enjoy making books which shows my learning. We have been on Microsoft word using our typing and keyboard skills

Aeron (Year 3):  I enjoying completing activities at home and in school.  Our Seesaw blog is good because it is made just for kids and we can share our work.

Jacob (Year 4): We have been learning how to make a smoking car game on scratch. You have to code what you want the car to do using motion and control blocks.
Gabi (Year 4): I enjoy computing because it makes our work fun. In R.E we have been using Book creator and I like designing my work with text and images
Timvi (Year 4): I like using computing because I feel happy I can things which are really cool like games and books.

Ashleigh (Year 5): What I like is that we learn how to code our own games. When we grow up we could make our game. However, being online can be very dangerous so we need to be really careful.
Nina (Year 5): I enjoy working by myself and working with other people. When we have a problem we can try really hard to debug it. It is funny when it is just one click and it fixes it.

Keira (Year 6): It is fun to do coding and we use Book creator or book creator in R.E. It allows me to be creative to design it in different ways
Korneliuz (Year 6): When we debug things it helps us to solve problems and helps me to feel like I have achieved something.  It helps us to be resilient.

Filming at SFX!

 Year 4, in conjunction with Catcher Media and Mark Sanderson Computing, used archived photographs from the local photographer Derek Evans, to create an iMovie film about Hop Picking. They wrote the scenes and filmed them on location at Stocks Farm, Cradley. They interviewed the experts, Ali Capper and John Pudge from The Hop Pocket. They recorded the backing track ‘Hopping Down in Stocks’, created their own music using Garage Band and wrote stories and poems for the film. The film was screened at the Odeon on Wednesday 11th July 2018 and can be watched on https://herefordshirecomputing.com/HLTAL. 

You can also catch up with us in the Hereford Times - www.herefordtimes.com/news/16364758.children-get-to-see-their-own-films-on-the-big-screen/#gallery2
