We are currently embarking on an exciting research project with the University of Central Lancashire. The research looks at the potential for children to learn French through Minecraft. As such we have started an after school club which focuses on different activities aimed at developing French language skills. The children create and pursue quests and label their work in French.
3D Printing Club
Posted: 12th Nov 2018
Each week at 3D printing club the children are given a design brief to create a model which fits a theme. The two best creators have their designs printed and even get to take them home!
Preston MP Sir Mark Hendrick visited school to officially unveil Eldon Primary Schools mosaic artwork. Whilst visiting he popped into the Radio Station for interview. The full interview can be found in the 'Broadcasts' section of the website amongst other interviews and broadcasts.
Lego Robotics has been underway here at Eldon. The children enjoyed constructing lego models and programming the devices through a Lego coding app with their parents.
Super Learning Day
We had yet another fun packed Super Learning Day at school. This time we looked into the depths of space and beyond! The children viewed footage of the Elon Musk's SpaceX launch and his Tesla car which is floating around just outside the earths atmosphere! We then used augmented reality to investigate the planets and space exploration equipment used by NASA.
In each class the children have access to an interactive calender on the class computer. The calender is full of fun facts and useful information about Christmas.
During coding sessions we have been programming our own educational computer games using the Scratch website. Here are some of our coders hard at work!
Super Learning Day
We used the 'Quiver' App on our iPads to transform our coloured pictures into 3D images. This is called augmented reality.
We are Oustanding!
We are now an outstanding school! This is fantastic news and now we deserve to celebrate.
How should we celebrate?
