For our experience day today Year 1 were exploring some early computer games! They had fantastic ideas for how games have changed from Pong (1972) to Space Invaders (1978) to Pac Man (1980) to Sonic (1991) as well as comparing to their games today. Using the FANTASTIC’s children noticed how sound progressed from the older to newer games as well as how the colour/graphics and controls progressed (which helped them to order the games from older to newer). They asked questions to find out more about the games and imagined what would make these games even better.
In the afternoon, children thought of questions to ask Mr Robb about what computer games were like when he was younger. We are working hard on using a question mark at the end of our written questions! We also compared our chrome books in school to the technology that Mr Robb had when he went to school.
Amazing ideas and questions Year 1! Our next experience day is this Thursday (2nd December). Please can Year 1 bring ONE toy with wheels.
