Outstanding challenges with OSMO

OSMO has developed the children’s confidence in ICT and supported their learning across all areas of the curriculum.  The OSMO promotes fine motor skills in addition to mathematical, word building, thinking and creative development.

Year 5 excelled at EXCEL

Following a class trip to Stratford Year 5 used EXCEL spreadsheets to work out the profit/loss of the trip.  The children set up a table and added formulae to add and subtract numbers.

SCRATCH and computing throughout the school

From Bugs and Buttons on the iPads to programming beebots, the children in the Foundation Phase begin programming at an early age.  Their skills are developed in Years 3 and 4 with the app ‘Hopskotch’ which is followed by SCRATCH in Years 5 and 6.
