Friday 12th January
Every computing lesson begins with a discussion on how to stay safe when online. The children are taught to be SMART.
S = Stay safe
M = never Meet
A = should I Accept?
R = is it Reliable
T = Tell
In year 6, the children continued an exciting topic using green screens. The children worked with partners and pretended they were news anchors. The children added different backgrounds of news shows or of different weather systems and then overlaid themselves telling the news.
In year 5, the children continued looking at databases. They created a database on the class, including different fields, such as hair colour, favourite music etc..
Year 4: The children began exploring writing genres. Today, the children focussed on changing fonts, colours, size and placement of different text in a newspaper.
Year 3: This week, the children continued a short topic on touch-typing. Many of the children really focused on choosing the correct fingers and hand placement. Fantastic year 3!
Year 2: This week, the children began looking at Binary Trees; these are simple systems, which help us to sort items, through yes no questions. (Very similar to Guess Who)
Year 1: Today, the children had different challenges to complete, which are the first stepping-stones for algorithms.
Reception: Today, the main task was to learn how to login to Purple Mash on their own. With adult support, all the children achieved the task! Well done!
