Well...sort of! Cranmere Coding Club has won a national competition to design a computer program that will be run in space on board the International Space Station by UK astronaut Tim Peake. Our code club designed a program to test whether astronauts could be detected aboard the ISS using temperature and humidity sensors on a Raspberry Pi (now dubbed Astro Pi). We won and the prize is that Tim Peaks will actually test the program in space and will hopefully video it and blog about it. We also won 15 Raspberry Pi computers. An amazing achievement by the children of Code Club and Richard Hayler! For the full story click here http://www.sstl.co.uk/Blog/April-2015/Minecraft-in-Space
On 14th and 15th of April Year 3 took part in their residential trip to Sayers Croft just south of Guildford. The weather was glorious and the children had great fun on numerous activities including: team challenge, stone age workshop, maze, orienteering, blindfold challenge and night walk. At lot was crammed into the two days. To see Hawthorn photos click here. To see Rowan photos click here. To see Mrs Barrett's Rowan pictures click here.
As you may know our netball team finished top of their half of the Elmbridge League and with a 100% winning record. This then took them to a semi-final match against St Lawrence (who were runners up in the other half of the league). We won 9-2 taking us through to the final against St Paul's who had won their semi against Thames Ditton. We lost 5-3 and therefore finish as runners up of the 13 Emlbridge schools. Well done girls (and we have an all-girls team unlike some schools who field boys). This the highest position a Cranmere team has ever finished in a league competition.
