Year 6 - Technology (ICT)

In ICT, we looked closely at GPS and how it works. We discovered it works using a range of different satellites which communicate their distance from the receiver and help to triangulate an objects location. We then played a mini game of battleships (satellite-style!) to see if people could guess / work out where out ‘cars’ are located. We also applied our growing knowledge of algorithms and extended our Walk Smart training to write our own algorithm for a safe walk to Walbottle Campus. This involved us using a lot of different function types and a range of different component symbols.
