During Computing, Year 1 Puffins have been learning about the green screen and all the effects that can be applied to the backgrounds.
Puffins read out some interesting toy facts in front of the green screen with suitable background images.
Watch the video below:
During Computing, Year 1 Puffins have today been labeling their toys using Purple Mash. They took photographs of their toys and today started to think about adjectives to describe their toys.
The children used the labeling 2DiY program to label their toys using words like fluffy, soft, hard, cute, nose, eyes, ears etc.
Mr Baddhan was impressed with all the children who completed today’s lesson really well.
During Computing, Year 1 Puffins have today been using adjectives to describe toys.
The children used a word bank to describe different toy including lego blocks, a teddy bear and many others.
Later in the lesson, Puffins were asked to type in their own adjectives for each toy.
During today’s Computing lesson with Mr Baddhan, Year 1 learned more about algorithms. They used a program called Lily Hop to write down instructions.
Yesterday Puffins learned that algorithms are a clear set of instructions to achieve an outcome.
The children were asked to write down instructions to direct the frog to the stone using directional commands. They then tested their instructions to see if they were correct.
Year 1 Puffins wrote algorithm instructions using Purple Mash’s 2Go. Mr Baddhan asked the children to write clear instruction to move the car around the track, back to the start line.
The directions used were up, down, left and right.
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!
Puffins topic for the next two weeks is Computing. So far the children have been practising how to log on and off, understanding the icons, practising their typing skills and explore Purple Mash.
Year 1 Puffins used a computer program to edit a photograph in the style of Andy Warhol’s Sunrise Sunset painting.
Mr Baddhan showed the children how easily artistic effects can be applied to images. Here are some of the work children produced.
This was the original image.
The children then applied some photo effects to the original image in the style of Andy Warhol.

During Computing, Year 1 Puffins have this afternoon enjoyed creating their own animations using Pivot Stick Animator.
Mr Baddhan explained to the children of what an animation is and that each animation includes a collection of frames.
Using the Pivot Stick Animatior program, the children were asked to create dancing stick men, which they all enjoyed.
Year 1 Puffins have completed their green screen work, reading facts about toys – watch the video below:
