Year 6 App Planners ICT Project

20th October 2017

As part of their learning in the STEM subjects this half term, Year 6 have been working with Mr Brown to plan and design their very own app for a smartphone. First, we looked at what exactly a smartphone is and what they are capable of doing before considering their different inputs and outputs. After this, we decided to think about what kind of different apps are ‘missing from the marketplace’ and then come up with ideas for problems we could fix. We came up with some lovely ideas such as an instructional horse grooming app. In Guided Reading, we researched search engines and the algorithms they use to function before      researching potential competitor apps! We’re all very excited to build our apps using computerised software later in the year: watch this space!
