Year 5 and 6 used PicCollage app today to take and edit nice, sensible photos of themselves and their friends.
Part of the fun of the internet is being able to share things with friends online -
but we must do it safely!
The children thought about what we must ask ourselves before sharing something online and generated some useful questions. They then used the app to create images as reminders. Please check out the examples below.
Year 3 and 4 were developing their typing skills and exploring using emoji this afternoon. The children worked together to type a nursery rhyme correctly, changing the appearance (colour, size and style) of the font and then exploring swapping words for emoji. Please take a look at some of their work below.
In Years 5 and 6, we were discussing how fun it is to share things with our friends online. We discussed if anyone had ever shared anything? Most children answered yes in the form of photos, messages and video clips. I then asked if anyone had shared something they now regret. After a brief silence, a few hands were raised. Although it is great fun to share things with our friends online, we must remember to do it safely. The children then created some posters (with Pages app) to remind them what to think about before posting a photo.
Following on from the successes with Year 5 and 6, I thought is was important that all of our school users engaged in a discussion about appropriate use of the iPads. Therefore, Years 3 and 4 also produced their own set of rules using Pages app this afternoon.
The children in Year 5 and 6 were all very excited about working on iPads today. W began the session discussing how to use them appropriately, so that every member of our school community could also enjoy using them in class. The children then created a printable set of rules, to act as a reminder for all classes (and teachers) using the iPads. To do this we used Pages app.
For our first ever Mix-up Morning, children in Faith houses become the first users of our new iPads. We decided to look at what the word Faith means. Our discussions included many different words, as the children tried to come up with a definition, so we captured those words in some beautiful word clouds with WordClouds app.
