Year 7NT creative coding!

Year 7NT creative coding!

Year 7 have been using their coding skills to create rotating patterns of a square, triangle and hexagon.  They needed to use their numeracy skills to think about the number of sides and angles required for each shape initially, and once they had created their code, they then thought about how they could use the 'repeat code' command to create a spiral design by rotating the pattern through 360 degrees. The children created some lovely patterns!

Year 7NT had fun on our Scavenger hunt as part of our activities to celebrate Eco Week. The children had to look for lots of summer treasures in nature like dandelion clock and 4-leaf clover to name a few. They had lots of fun being nature detectives while exploring our school grounds.

Turning the page programme

Turning the page programme

Year 7 have enjoyed their first session of the Turning the page programme delivered by Causeway Coast Vineyard. This is a great programme that gives the children the opportunity to reflect on their time at primary school and think about the next big step in their lives when they transition to their new school. 

They will be given the opportunity to work at managing their emotions and discuss tips on looking after and improving their mental health. We eagerly look forward to our next session!

Mrs Thom's class have been working hard to produce lots of art for Ballymoney Show. We have been busy making pastel pictures, collage from recycled paper and drawing or painting a picture of our favourite pet. In addition we have been using our digital skills to make a poster on mental health, a book cover and lovely pictures using the Artset App. Have a look at our beautiful work!

Y7NT Terex Engineering Programme

Year 7NT enjoyed their third week of the Terex Engineering Programme this week. They thought more about their designs from last week and started to put the parts of their machine onto card before decorating them. 

They also enjoyed sorting materials using different sized sieves as well as taking turns to use the VR headset to use the Terex machines in a quarry. 

We are all learning lots of different skills and all about engineering!
