We have been exploring how to use databases using Purple Mash.  We thought about how databases are used and why they are useful in everyday life.  We then learned how information is stored in different records using fields and worked on searching an alien database to find information to simple questions, before moving onto more complicated and/or searches.  

In our Digital Literacy lesson this week, we watched a video about cyber bullying.  We learned what it is, what it looks like, strategies for dealing with it and how we can upstanders rather than bystanders if we see it happening.
Although we have not been in school, as part of our remote learning, we have been exploring how to keep safe online.  We have learned about why our digital footprint matters and found out how to avoid clickbait.
We have been finding out all about copyright today and what laws there are for sharing or using content online that has been created by someone else.  We looked at different scenarios and then decided if copyright would prevent us from using or sharing the content.  We also learned about asking permission from the owner of giving credit to the owner.

Digital Research


We have been continuing to explore using a search engine effectively.  We investigated what happened when we used different keyword searches and the number of results that were returned.  We discovered that being more specific in our searches would help to narrow down our results effectively.

We have been learning how to use a search engine effectively by using keyword searches and then comparing the results of our searches depending on the keywords chosen.


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.
Using the coding skills we have worked on this term, we developed our own game app.  We had to consider what the aim of our simple app was and then also work out the code that would allow it to work.
