The Hour of Code can be done by any teacher in any yeargroup. No sign-up is required, the lectures are game-based and intuitive. Have a go and see what the Hour of Code is all about; a safe and fun environment to learn the basics of programming.

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. Check out the tutorials and activities. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 200,000 educators worldwide.

Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. This is the 5th year that NMS participates, we hope that many classes and teachers join in!

On this evening, there was a short sketch performed based on “Private Peaceful” (a novel by Michael Morpurgo) and a moving recital of poems by a renowned selection of World War One poets (for example Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, Robert Graves and Richard Aldington). It was especially profound as following each poem, one candle was blown out so we were left in the dark at the end. A selection of lapbooks could also be explored – where one element of life during World War 1 was deftly designed and displayed. It was a thoughtful evening and the pupils did a very good job of recreating the catastrophe of war.

As part of our study of Forces and Motion in Grade 6 I always ask the children to build a roller coaster demonstrating the principles of:

  1. Gravity
  2. Friction
  3. Magnetism
  4. Potential and Kinetic Energy
  5. Renewable and non renewable sources of energy
  6. Newton’s Laws of Motion

This year the roller coasters from the 6B were particularly spectacular! And the children demonstrated a deep understanding of the concepts involved. Please have a look at the photos of their work.

Avid Media Composer

Video editing has become easier in recent years, with free and userfriendly tools such as Moviemaker and iMovie or even the wonderful Magisto app, which automatically puts your videos together, including music and some funky effects. Especially great for homevideos, but what if you want to join the major league? Then it makes sense to opt for a solution like Avid – which now comes to your doorstep (or rather your inbox) free of charge! Try Avid’s Media Composer and make your Hollywood (or Babelsberg) dreams come true. Even though the most top-notch options may have to be paid for, you can get started today with the best editing software used to produce award-winning feature films and series.
