Safer Internet Day

Year 6 have completed a lot of computing work this week.

Firstly, to celebrate Safer Internet Day, they completed an online quiz all about friends and frenemies and discussed the difference between these two online.

Then we had our usual computing lesson. In this lesson the children were using Scratch to create their own times tables games!

We then ended the day with a BBC Teach live lesson all about AI. This was very informative and useful for the children and they enjoyed watching the lesson and completing the activities along the way.

Differences in us

In PSHE, Year 6 have been looking at visible differences over the past two weeks. We have been exploring how the stereotypes that are often in film and on TV, which are often negative, can have an effect on people in the world who have visible differences. This afternoon we spoke about how this would make people feel. 

Online Safety

Year 6 started off the new term with an online safety lesson. In this lesson we were looking at the features of persuasive design and how they are used to keep users engaged. The children worked in pairs to identify different persuasive design techniques before discussing as a class how we could reduce or remove the effect of each technique. For example, notifications can be reduced by switching off a device.
