Today we programmed our microbits to create a Pedometer. We firstly tried to attach the Pedometers to our wrists but we quickly found out the shake sensor wasn't sensitive enough. So we decided to attach the pedometers to our ankles. We had good fun walking around the many corridors in school to test whether we each walked the same amount of steps along the same route. What we found out was that we each accumulated different amounts. We concluded some of us we taking lots of small steps, while others were taking longer strides. A fun afternoon!
Week 5 - Coding a Pedometer
FOOTBALL...The A team lost one , drew one and won one in a recent football festival of twenty local schools. The boys, captained by Damian, performed really well and only lost by the odd goal to Bocombra, the eventual winners. Mr Guy is confident of some silverware later on this season. The other boys and girls will playing at their school mini-festival in early December. There are 40 students attending practice weekly which is a good sign for this season.
Week 4 - Microbit Coding Club (Y6&7) Challenge: Create a coding program that has a greeting and a random response to the question when Microbit is shaken. Lots of fun adding 🙂 and 🙁 faces.

Crest Award Science Group 2017/2018
Crest Award Science Club for Year 7
Week 1 - Tumbling Toast
Our challenge this week was to help solve the quandary of does toast always land butter side down?
We were investigating the notion of 'Murphy's Law'. In small groups of 2/3, we had to come up with a fair test that would allow us to test what happens when you drop toast. Some group tested buttered/not buttered, toasted/not toasted, crusts/no crusts. We also had to keep in mind how high we were going to drop the toast slices. In the end, it was found that there was little consistency between the results of butter/no butter and crusts/no crusts but height of the drop did play an important role. The greater height gave the toast time to turn in the air. However, it was concluded by Year 7 that indeed it was all down to chance as to what side the toast landed on.
