A while back the Biggies created some Christmas Art on their iPads for the NLC Christmas Art Competition. We had a Winner. But here are all our entries. The Class are getting really skilful at using the Brushes App for painting. Many show great understanding of layers and how to use them.
We decorated our “Tree of Gratitude” with some micro:bit bobbles. We programmed them to animate when receiving a signal from another micro:bit!
The Biggies have some Christmas Challenges today:
- Minetest, build a snow house, igloo, Christmas tree, bonus points for Christmas jumper
- Newspaper Christmas table, to hold 5 book, max height 20cm
- Santa Sleigh to hold choc Santa & pudding
- Micro:bit Christmas decoration
Here are some early minetest results, not sure if we will get to the other challenges…
Zara made a video showing all of our micro:bit Christmas projects.
And here is another video from 2 primary 4s.
Remember you can see all of the microbit christmas videos too
The Biggies have been working hard designing models with microbits for Christmas.
While doing this we identified learning including Team Work, Coding, Building (measuring, painting, cutting etc.), Designing, Planning and Problem Solving! We also used Clips to make these videos. More are in the pipeline and will be added to the playlist when they are ready.
The Banton Biggies have been learning to program some microbits.
