Safer Internet Day 2019

Tuesday 5th February was Safer Internet Day. Throughout school, children have been learning the skills they need to keep themselves safe in the rapidly changing online world.

The theme for this year is Together for a Better Internet. Our pupils have learned about the importance of taking control of their digital lives. Lessons have covered the principle of protecting and respecting privacy, and also the importance of seeking permission whether we are online or offline.

Please take some time to look at Parent Zone webpage and the Safer Internet Day 2019 site for parents and carers.

If you need any extra advice or support in creating a safer online environment for your child please let me know.

Programming In Reception

In our computing lessons we have been learning to program Beebots which are programmable floor robots. We have been learning how to direct a beebot, how to make it turn and how to make it go from one place to another. To extend our learning with the beebots, this week we have introduced the iPads which have a beebot app.

Next week some children will have a go at writing their own algorithms for the beebots.

Here are some photos showing our turn taking skills in action. We also had to problem solve together today when we made a mistake and help each other to get the beebot through the maze. Great effort Reception!
