Our topic in Computing this term is: 'We Built This City'.
The topic introduces the use of Algorithims, which are a set of instructions and/or set of rules. Today we looked at the world of simulations.
We discussed the purpose of simulations and the advantages they offer. Simulations allow the children to deleve into the 3D world. We drew our own 3D houses, which proved quite a difficult task. We highlighted the benefits to using computer software next time to produce 3D simulations.
The children will produce their own next lesson using a build program ‘Toca Builer’ app (iPad) so they can learn how to build a 3D environment.
