Our Fragile Planet
On Tuesday 13th November eighteen children from Year 6 visited J. P. Morgan in Bournemouth and took part in their Code Club. It was very definitely a fun and interesting day for everyone.
To begin with the children were given a “Cyber Talk” which included information on Internet safety and how their day at J. P. Morgan would evolve.The children then took part in a “Lego DevOps” game within which the children assigned themselves roles in order to build a structure made of Lego. The game emphasised the need for team work and the value in using such a framework.
Next the children took part in a programming game called Robocode where the goal is to code a robot battle tank to compete against other robots in a battle arena. The children learnt to program using the Java programming language for this activity. The children worked hard and successfully programmed and played the game. Fantastic and impressive work!
After lunch, the children took part in a couple more team working and problem-solving games. The first game “Agile” involved the children selecting tasks they thought they could complete quickly within four minutes! The second game was another team-building activity where teams built the tallest tower they could from newspaper.
Finally, the day ended with a Robocode Final and presentation of Code Club certificates. The children thanked the J. P. Morgan staff for their time and such a great experience.
All in all, a fantastic day!

Message from the Year 6 team:
They have all arrived safely and had lunch and played games in the sports hall. They are now checking out their berooms! As it has now dried up they are going to head down to the beach for the afternoon, before heading back for tea and evening entertainment!
Photos of day 1 will appear shortly!!
The sun was shining, the views of the bay were stunning and yet again the children were amazing. Everywhere we go we are complimented by instructors and teachers of the other schools as to how well-behaved and polite the children are - we have earned quite a reputation here!!! Its been another action packed day finished off by a visit to the shop to buy souvenirs and then a disco. We easily won the dance off - and that was just the teachers!!! As we write, the children are packing as every moment until we leave will be full of activities and last minute fun. We will post more photos tomorrow. See you all tomorrow.
