Introducing our NEW leaders!

Hi and welcome to our first ever blog as the new Year 5 Digital Leaders!

We have enjoyed our training and learning lots of new things.

Did you know?

  • You should never share your personal information online.
  • Whenever you do something on the internet it stays on your digital footprint.
  • You should always pay attention to the age ratings you see on games.

STAY SAFE ONLINE!

We will be back soon to keep you updated about all the things we are going to do.

We are very excited.

More iPad training...

 

We have been so lucky to have the Apple Education Expert return to show some more children in school how to use some apps. This time we looked at using iMovie and Clips to create videos, add effects, insert pictures and edit.

As Digital Leaders, we got invited to take part in some training using the app Anchor and learnt how to create Podcasts. We are very excited to see how we can use this in school!

Safer Internet Day 2019

During Safer Internet Week we helped to give an assembly to the rest of the school to discuss how to keep safe online. We watched Oscars Online Adventures and decided what to so in each scenario. Across the week we also went into different classes and read stories about different ways people may need to think about their behaviour and how it affects themselves and others. The stories covered online shopping, sharing photographs, bullying, texting, tweeting, personal information and lots more.

Apple Education Expert

This week an Apple Education Expert came into school and showed each year group how to use some fantastic apps in their lessons. We were able to go into each year groups sessions and help to support the children in their learning. We learnt how to use Pages and Keynotes to make books and presentations, and can now insert pictures, videos, audio and text, as well as dragging across information we found on the Internet. We also learnt how to use the Chatterpix app to animate a photograph, use filters, frames and effects, as well as adding our own voices. Year 1 and 2 also had a chance to code their own maze photos and record their directions using the microphones, we enjoyed helping them to debug their programs! 

We got shown how to use Green Sceen and made our own news report, pretending we were in different places around the world by putting different backgrounds behind us when filming!

We had an amazing day and learnt so many new skills that we can use to help in Computing across the school. Thank you Mr Brown, we can't wait for you to come back later in the year and show us more!
