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
- 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?
Class 9 have been discussing what we use the internet for. Here are our top ten suggestions.
In 10th place is shopping for food, toys and clothes.
In 9th place is homework.
In 8th place is looking for things in Google maps.
In 7th place is finding out information by asking Google.
In 6th place is messaging family and friends.
In 5th place is video calls like WhatsApp, Facetime and Messenger.
In 4th place is looking at picture of family and friends on Facebook.
In 3rd place is music on Alexa, sonos and YouTube.
In 2nd place is playing video games.
And in 1st place watching videos on YouTube, iPlayer, Netflix and Amazon prime.
Keeping looking for our next post ‘How to stay safe on the internet.’
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.
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!
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;
- Listen to music. (Lyla)
- Watch YouTube. (Teddy)
- Follow instructions to make crafty things. (Willow)
- Using amazon.co.uk to buy things. (Jessica)
- Play games. (Fraser)
- Find out stuff; asking questions about the world around us. (Faith)
- Looking at images. (Lana)
- Look at things that help us with our homework. (Martha)
- Print off colouring sheets. (Corey)
- Researching cricket players. (Oscar)
Over the coming weeks we will be learning about how we can stay safe on the internet.
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.
