In ICT Year 6 have been learning about the advances in computer technology by looking at the history of games consoles. They have researched some of the earliest consoles such as the Fairchild Channel F and the Magnavox Odyssey and have compared the processing speed and RAM with the modern-day PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This has helped them to understand how powerful modern computers are and also the fact that they are constantly improving – what will the consoles be like when they are grown up and have children?

The children then used a website called Big Huge Labs to start creating Top Trump cards for the various different consoles so that they could compare the performance of various models.
