Bebras Challenge 2022

This was the first year that the Manor entered Years 5 & 6 into the international Bebras Challenge.

The Bebras Challenge introduces computational thinking to pupils across primary and senior schools and is one of the main concepts of Computing.  The challenge was completed in Computing lessons.

All of our pupils approached the challenge with determination and bravery and this was reflected in their impressive results.

15 pupils in Year 6 were awarded a Gold certificate, which meant that they were in the top 10% of UK participants (106,703) and are invited to participate in the Oxford University Computing Challenge:

The Manor’s Year 6 average score exceeded the national average by 33 points, so a massive congratulations go to all Year 6 pupils and a special mention to Evelyn C who came and incredible 36th out of 106,703 Y6 participants!

Year 5 also performed very well with Emma R and Kristina R attaining Best in School.

Educational Apps

An increasing number children are being given access to mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. While these can be seen purely as a form of entertainment for children, the ‘apps’ that many of these devices offer can be of enormous benefit to their learning:

Many apps give children feedback and rewards and they progress, therefore encouraging them in the learning.

Apps help prepare children for the future: Technology isn’t going anywhere. When children use age appropriate apps on devices such as the iPad they are learning to use the tools that will become more and more part of daily life in the future.

They can be a good way to track children’s progress. Many apps offer progress reports so that you can actually see how it is helping to improve skills like reading, maths, phonics and more.

They are portable: The classroom can go where you go and there is no heavy book bag to carry.

They are fun! Apps for children are specifically designed to maximise engagement and keep little ones learning without even realising they are.
