This week three brilliant Gateway School pupils were recognised for their fabulous I.T. skills. Nearly 100 Gateway pupils entered the group wide Bellevue Education ‘Together we can’ competition which was open to entries from all 21 Bellevue schools. Students were challenged to interpret the theme of ‘Together we can’ using a digital platform of their choice. The judges were especially impressed with the wide range of software Gateway students used - including Google Docs, Slides, Forms and Drawings, Adobe Spark video, Book creator, Soundtrap and Scratch Coding.
Using the Book Creator iPad app, a Year 2 pupil wowed the judges with her vibrant combination of text and hand drawn images conveying the idea that, together, we can help the environment. She scooped the prize for Key Stage 1.
In Key Stage 2, two Year 6 pupils collaborated and won with their Scratch game that could only be completed by two players working together at the same time which included complex colour sensing code in order to achieve their goal.
