Safer Internet Day
Digital leaders held an assembly today all about staying safe online. This years tag is about being yourself and creating an identity that is unique to you. We watched a video on creating an Avatar that is safe and appropriate for you. After this, we completed a knowledge quiz and were proud to see that we all are aware of how to stay safe.
This term we are going to be continuing with computer programming, specifically looking at coding and de bugging. This will then be followed up by beginning to use the "Scratch" programme. We will also be working with Mr Yates and doing an assembly about Safer Internet Day in February. Hope you all had a very relaxing break.
Welcome back after half-term, hope you all had a restful break.
We are beginning computer programming this term and looking at algorithms, how these impact on programming and what would happen if we changed it around.
We will be meeting fortnightly.
Wednesday 18th September
Digital leaders met today to go through possible projects for this year. We decided that computing skills would be a great one to do. We will be looking at programmes like Scratch, digital art and focusing on skills we haven't used. We will pass these skills onto our classes. We will also be looking over e-safety throughout the year.
Welcome back after the summer break.
We've already had a busy and exciting first 2 weeks with children going on their learning away experiences.
This week ( 16th September ) we will be meeting to discuss and come up with a project to do together over the next school year, so make sure you keep checking our web page.
We have a busy term ahead of us, only 8 weeks left !
New Digital leaders will be chosen and we have an important assembly to organise.
This will be on Wednesday 15th July which is World Emoji day .
We will also link this to social media awareness and the impact it can have on others.
Welcome back after Easter, hope you have all had a relaxing time and recharged your batteries. We will be meeting again next half term to discuss more about computing.
Update will follow.
Wednesday 3rd April
We have shown our video in Achievers assembly and all the Digital leaders were outstanding. The messages were very clear and direct on how to stay safe online. Unfortuantly, due to GDPR the video can not be uploaded onto our website.
Hopefully, we will get another chance to view it.

Today we have met up with Leonor, so we can plan ideas for our video we are making next week. Our video is going to be about using the internet for good reasons and how to keep safe online. We can then inform friends and family how to stay safe too..

Internet Safety day
5th February 2019
This week we learned how to keep ourselves and others safe online.We were very lucky to have Leonor from the University of Nottingham come to work with us. She discussed with us the positives and negatives of the internet.
We had an activity to complete in which we had to colour in different emotions, we also had examples of scenarios and how best to deal with them.
We made a Internet Safety Puzzle together,
( have a look below).
Just a quick update to let you know what will be happening this term.
Really excited to say that we are going to be having a student from the University of Nottingham coming in to work with our Digital Leaders.
This is a fantastic opportunity for all of them to expand and gain new knowledge especially as 5th February is Safer Internet day and Digital Leaders will be looking at activities for each class to be doing for this.
