Old Hall Special School


Computing Week

Old Hall pupils enjoyed taking part in Computing Week 2022. Pupils from across the school were able to engage in activities including: 

  • QR code scavenger hunt to find hidden treasures. We used iPads to scan QR codes that revealed the place of the next clue.  

  • Metal detectors to explore materials and find metals. We also used these to find foil wrapped chocolate treasures in sensory trays. 

  • Soundbeam Music – We explored different ways of playing and making music with our multi-sensory equipment. 

  • Switch adapted toys and sound/light toys. These helped us to explore cause and effect.   

  • Early programming with remote control vehicles and Bee Bots. 

  • We stepped on our interactive stepping-stones to play recordings of facts about our chocolate topic. We also used microphones to record facts that we had learnt about Chocolate. 

  • A recorded story about the origins of Chocolate. 

  • Sensory light up zone/tent – we enjoyed exploring various glow resources in our blackout sensory tent. 

Computing Week was a great success and we are looking forward to exploring our wonderful resources in learning across the curriculum.
