Class 7I How we use the internet

This afternoon, Class 7I had a great time thinking about different things we use the internet for. Mr Heywood said that when he was a little boy there was no such thing as the internet!

These are the things we came up with:

  • Looking up information
  • Playing games, like Temple Run, Score Hero, Minecraft.
  • Watching video clips
  • Reading and writing blogs
  • SatNavs, Google Earth, journey planning
  • Working and learning
  • Shopping
  • Watching films and TV programmes on demand
  • E mails and messaging people
  • Phone calls, video calls eg,What’s App, Facetime, Skype
  • Facebook – looking at pictures and videos, people’s news.

Can you think of any more?

Soon we will learning more about how to use the internet safely.

What do you think we can do to make sure we are safe online?

Tomato Spider

Today we went to the junior ICT suite. It was really exciting because some of us haven’t been there before.

Mrs L asked us to find out facts about the Tomato Spider by logging on to the following website. First, we found out the latin name for the Tomato Spider and then we learnt about it’s diet and habitat.

Tomato Spider Website

After we had conducted out research Mrs Lilley told us that the Tomato Spider wasn’t real! We were shocked! Most of us believed it was.

We discussed the fact that we need to be cautious when we view information on websites; just because it looks real it doesn’t always mean that it is!

Pond Dipping

The Great Outdoors Club had a fantastic time emptying and re-filling the infant school pond. We found four fish, some tadpoles and lots and lots of dead leaves! Mr Viney came in to help us, and told us interesting information about how to have a healthy pond and what kinds of creatures we might find. As the water drained away, he explained how to syphon the water out using just a hose. Everyone had a net and scooped out the contents of the pond. Now that the water is clean and clear, we are hoping lots more creatures will choose our pond as a place to live. Watch this space…
