Welcome to our computing blog where we will celebrate our computing work at Allerton CE Primary.
Our Year 2 pupils in the after school Computing Club have been learning how to use Pivot Stickfigure Animator. Here are some of their first attempts:
This afternoon our Year 2 computing club have been playing with the colour tools on an art programme to see if they can make their teachers look more interesting! Can you work out who they are?
Our Year 2 group have been practising their copy and pasting skills to create strange, mixed up animals.
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.
Computing Club have been introduced to the “green screen”, here is their first NewsSquare report.
In computing club we spent a little time researching about animals that have become extinct. Friday 30th November is Lost Species Day, a chance for us to remember all those species that no longer exist because of the way that we humans have chosen to live.

In computing club we have been looking at how to do simple animations of ball games using Pivot. Here are a couple of our animations:
