Holbrook Primary – Year 1

Look what we are learning.

Simulations

Computers can be used to model or simulate real life, they can be games or even science experiments.  As long as the computer has the right information it can model what would happen.  As it is in a virtual world time can be sped up so a few minutes can become a few weeks or months!

Diwali – Online information.

Computers are a great way of finding out lots of information.  Today in computing we are using the skills we have learned this half term to log on to the computer, use headphones and click on a link from the blog to find out all about the festival of Diwali that takes place over the holiday next week.

Discovery education can be used at home, but you need to log in, but in school we can go directly.
