We looked at the history of moving pictures and made our own zoetropes!
We have had a great day thinking about staying safe online, keeping personal information secure and giving consent. We designed our own APPs thinking carefully about the safety features we would include within our privacy settings and made our own slogan ‘IT IS NOT OK!’ when people don’t ask permission.
Oak have kicked off our learning by looking at Microsoft Excel. We looked at the different functions and worked our way around the programme by playing a game of battleships against our partners. We then moved on to look at what we could afford during half term with a £200 budget. The children worked really hard to use the SUM function to automatically add up their total and work out how much budget they had left. They tried to cram as much in as possible, although I’m not sure if they realise the £200 budget is imaginary!!
Well done Oak class!
Can you ask the children if they remember any of the formula’s they used? Also find out how much of their budget they spent and what activities they chose. I’m pretty sure some of them are taking some parents along for the trip too!
We talked about the rules we need to follow when using our new equipment and what we need to do to listen to some music or a story.
In Fir class we have been creating our own databases using everything we have learnt in computing this term. We enjoyed collecting data, inputting it and then sorting and filtering the information.
We learnt all about mother boards and process as well as the process of solving human problems through to binary. We then learnt what binary was and how to count in binary as well as create numbers in binary.
Rowan learnt about what a computer network is and how data moves on the internet. We did this through a fun data packages game sending messages to each other via a switch and router.
