Mr Smith does not compute…

In Obsidian today we explored how algorithms have to be precise – even when doing a seemingly simple task. The children had to instruct Robot Mr Smith to make a cheese and salad sandwich. They found it was more difficult than they thought to make the robot do what they had in mind. They then had a chance to amended their algorithms to take on board what they discovered. 

   
   

Tessellations

Today in Tourmaline class we were looking at tessellation pictures by MC Escher. All the children and some parents and carers had great fun creating some of their own. Have a look at some of the pictures below.

Open afternoon in Obsidian

In Obsidian class today we were joined by a number of parents as part of our whole school open afternoon. The parents who came were able to look around at the work we have been doing this term. They also joined in with our art lesson in which we looked at MC Escher and then created our own original tessellated patterns.

Testing, testing…

In Obsidian today  we set the children a challenge to build a strong, free-standing bridge using only a few sheets of A4 paper and a small amount of tape. They tested the strength of the bridges as they worked and, if necessary, amended their designs.
