Internet Safety Day- February 2020
On Internet Safety day, we explored the idea of making the internet a better place. We begun by considering what is meant by our online identity. We then completed our 'Who am I online?' identify wheels.
We really enjoyed becoming a boss deciding from a pool of applicants who we should give a job to based on their online activities and online identity. It made us realise that what we do online can be there forever and can have an impact on us in the future. We discussed the statement- 'Being 'free to be me' online means that I can do or say whatever I feel like'. This statement ignited a healthy debate in our class.
We enjoyed completing our #Free to be posters. Here were some of our ideas......
To make the internet a better place we are #Free to be..........
Our planning ideas for our own app using the skills we have learned from our Coding work.....
Year 5 began developing their Coding skills by learning to write code, which could program the speed of an object. We then worked on how to program buttons to increase or decrease the speed of the car and to bring it to a stop. Next, we worked on using variables to control the direction and speed of a car within a game. We used all our new learning to design and create our own simple driving game.
Year 6 worked on using variables in their code in more complex ways. They were able to use variables to make an area calculator.
