Super Cat

Posted by hollinswood on Monday Jun 20, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Year 5 have been making the Scratch Cat fly. Have a try yourself by

1. Clicking
2. Going to create
3. Import a new sprite
4. Choose animals
5. Choose one of the 2 flying cat sprites

You can now program the sprite to move left and right

Why not add some clouds to make the animation more realistic.

Good luck

Mr Smith

planting a pollinator friendly garden

Posted by tayahj on Monday Jun 13, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Mrs Bearblock and Mrs Edwards (who work with the 3greenRs) came in to our school and worked with Mrs Eden’s class to make a herb garden with used raised beds. They planted herbs so the Cook in our school can use them in  the  school dinners. All the herbs do not get sprayed with weed killer so all the herbs are organic. The reason the herbs were chosen was because they attract pollinators which are important to the fruits growth. This has never been done in Hollinswood Primary School History!!

Food waste figures

Posted by hollinswood on Monday Jun 13, 2016 Under Uncategorized

The students analysed data from the school kitchen. This included a survey on what made the students leave some of their food.

This was followed by a survey on ideas how they could address the problem of food waste in school.

Using actual data made the whole project more scientific.


Add some comments and questions below.

Thanks, Mrs Bearblock and Mr Smith
