DYW meets NDLW at Pumpherston and Uphall Station

Numeracy Challenge at Pumpherston and Uphall Station

DYW meets NDLW @ Pumpherston and Uphall Station CPS

As part of National Digital Learning Week, today Shona and Craig from Sky joined Primary 4 and 5 to share their knowledge of programming a micro:bit.

A micro:bit is a tiny programmable computer, designed to make learning and teaching easy and fun! Some of us even managed to programme it to say our names.

A big thank you to Shona and Craig for showing us this new piece of hardware, we were impressed how we used our prior knowledge of programming in order to use the micro:bit.

They also shared with children about their jobs at Sky and what skills and experience they need.

Lunch Time Clubs @ Pumpherston and Uphall Station CPS

As part of National Digital Learning Week staff offered some lunchtime clubs today.

P1-3 had the option  to attend an apps club. They had a tinker with the different apps we have available and a play with the green screen.

P4-7 could attend a Glow workshop. They decided they would have a tinker with forms to make an online quiz, or Sway to make a presentation about something they were interested in. Both groups tinkered with the software and supported each other with using the different features.
