In Computing this half term we are learning about algorithms and trying to understand and explain how they work to solve problems. We will use our logical reasoning to try and debug any issues with the programs we look at.
Have a look at the different algorithms on this Scratch program - how would you order them to make the random search generator work?
Remember to think about the order the different events need to happen and make sure the algorithm matches this. Use the flow chart below as a guide.
Mrs Izon :)
With Mrs Izon, Blake and Lemar have been recording their persuasive letter to William Mompesson. The boys have worked really hard at reading their work and editing it. We had lots of fun listening back to the recordings!
William Mompesson said that the villagers of Eyam should close the church, bury their own dead and put their village under quarantine.
Listen to what William Thorpe and Mary Hadfield had to say about this!

On Wednesday year 6 went on a trip to Eyam. First we visited the Riley Graves where Mrs Hancock had to bury all of her children and her husband. Next we had a long walk to the Boundary stone. The Boundary stone was very useful when Eyam went into quarantine. Obviously Eyam needed food so a guard went to the Boundary stone and left money there. In the afternoon they would come back, the money would be gone and it would've been replaced by food. Then we went to the plague cottage where Mary Hadfield had lived with a lodger called Goerge Vickers, her two sons and her second husband. This is where the plague had started. Finally we went to the outdoor church. It was an outdoor church so they could spread out incase the plague spread when they were to close. In the end they completely closed the church. They also decided that no one could come in and no one could go out. Eyam was in quarantine. Lots of people disagreed and because of this lots more people died.
