This week so far the children have been doing a variety of activities to ensure they understand how to keep safe online with the added bonus of Safer Internet Week. As part of our circle time the children have discussed what emojis they would used for a variety of scenarios.
We also ensured the Puffins know what to do if these scenarios happened and they were very confident in doing the right thing. Well done puffins!
During Computing with Mr Baddhan, Year 1 Puffins have been tallying up the colours of their favourite toys. Before half term, the children brought in their toys and this week they’ve been looking at each of the toys and adding up the most popular colour.
The most popular toy colour was gold and the least favourite red.
They then used Purple Mash’s 2Count program to add data into a pictograph – see below for some examples of their work.
Year 1 Puffins continued their understanding of clear instructions when using Code for Life’s Rapid Router website.
Puffins worked through the levels as they programmed a van to move from one point to another using programming blocks.
The blocks were as follows:
– Move Forwards
– Move Backwards
– Turn Left
– Turn Right
The children came across various challenges including working out the correct turn to use (left or right). Some children did really well working this out however the others had to use a BeeBot to help them work out the correct direction.
The children were also introduced to a new Computing term called sequence. When programming, it is important to make sure that all the steps are presented in the correct order – this is sequence.
Here is an example of a real life sequence – in the correct order.
All week Puffins have been taking in part in lots of activities for Safer Internet Week. Today as part of circle time we read a story all about Digiduck who shares an embarrassing image on the internet of his friend Pig. We discussed what is important when sharing an image on the internet:
