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!

Class 7

Year 2’s top ten things to do on the internet

Today class 7 have been talking about the internet. We noticed our school blog hasn’t been updated for a while so we thought it would be a good idea to add some new posts!

After a discussion about what we use the internet for, we’ve decided to compile a ‘Top Ten’ list of things we enjoy.

We like to;

  1. Listen to music. (Lyla)
  2. Watch YouTube. (Teddy)
  3. Follow instructions to make crafty things. (Willow)
  4. Using amazon.co.uk to buy things. (Jessica)
  5. Play games. (Fraser)
  6. Find out stuff; asking questions about the world around us. (Faith)
  7. Looking at images. (Lana)
  8. Look at things that help us with our homework. (Martha)
  9. Print off colouring sheets. (Corey)
  10. Researching cricket players. (Oscar)

Over the coming weeks we will be learning about how we can stay safe on the internet.

Class 7

Bee-Bots

Class 9 have been learning to write and programme Bee-bots. We started off by giving single instructions to the Bee-bots then our challenge was to try and give 2 or more instructions. We all had to remember to press the clear button at the start and go at the end. We also had to check our code to make sure the instructions were right so that Bee-bot didn’t go off the track. It also helped if we knew our left and right.

Class 7 Blog

We have been learning how to blog and typing about things we like.

We think that we are the best class because Mr TG always helps us when we are stuck. He helps us learn things like multiplication. Sometimes on Monday afternoon he does PE with us. Mr TG does cool stuff with us. We have learnt a lot about space in class like Mars and Venus.

We like class 7 because we have ICT. We like the iPads because we get to play games on it. We also like to do ICT because you get to code your friends. Sometimes we play sand draw on the iPads. We also play Dustbuster.

We like PE because it is the best of all time on Wednesday. PE is good because we play stuck in the mud. We love it very much like we love a friend. It is the best thing ever so good. The teacher is called Mr Tucker, he is the best teacher in the whole wide world.

We love PE because we play lots of games like stuck in the mud. Someone is the tagger and the other people have to run away from them. When you get tagged you have to put your hands out and someone has to go under your arms and then your free.

Morgan and Eva
We like Sport Heroes because we play who stole my keys. It is a game where you have to steal the keys from under the chair. It is after school on a Wednesday.

By Oliver and Aston
We like ICT because we do coding. Coding is really fun because we get to control robots and Bee-bots. Class 7 are the best class in school because that is what we think.

By Matilda and Kobey
In PE our teachers name is Mr Tucker. We like it in PE because we have been learning to balance. We do lots of balancing. ICT is also fun because we are learning to code and we play Fix the Factory. We have to fix the factory by putting the robot on the red and blue spots and there are lots of levels.

We think school is the best ever. We love mufti-day because you don’t have to wear your school uniform. We even have a school dog called Lola.

By Elizabeth and Frederick
We love class 7 because we have a lovely ICT teacher. Recently we have been doing coding. We found doing coding very tricky because it’s hard writing instructions when you’re not there doing it yourself. We think Miss Smith is the best teacher in the world because the way she teaches us is phenomenal.
