Year 2 and Year 3 enjoying Scratch (14th/15th July 2015)

I have worked on Scratch with Year 2 and 3 this week, encouraging the children to be creative. I gave them the finished programs to explore, which they then decomposed into all the parts necessary to make the program. I then let the children make the programs. Look at these amazing efforts from Laasya and Eloise below....

Mobile Phone Holders with Year 5 (8th July 2015)

Today, year 5 spent the morning discussing internet safety and the importance of being careful when online. We began by discussing what should and shouldn't be shared publicly online. We then watched the Newsround Internet safety video.


Following this discussion, we made mobile phone holders, decorated with tips for staying safe online. The stand itself was very easy to construct and the children thoroughly enjoyed making the stand - many thanks to @simonhaughton for the inspirational idea! We finished the session looking at the Horrible Histories video about privacy settings.


Take a look at some stands made by year 5 below:
