Barry does "Games Based Learning"

Year 6 were very excited to have Mr Bleazard from Challenge CLC visit just before the holidays. He came along to show us how to use games based learning to use and apply our maths skills. We knew a little bit about probabiltity beforehand but we got to use this skill in the computer games that we made/played using Kodu. Kodu is a new visual programming language made specifically for creating games. It was very exciting and we found out that we can download this software ourselves at home as it is free from Microsoft so lots of us decided we would do that.

Mrs Conway said that I was a very good orangatang as I went round all the groups making sure that they were OK and I kept an eye out for pupils using their learning muscles, I saw most pupils collaborating on their games, lots of perseverence as everyone got to grips with the software (that means they didn't give up even though it was a bit hard) and some excellent questionning.
