Digital Leaders Celebration Event 2017

Today, the Year 5 digital leaders went to the innovation centre, in Bradford, for a celebration event. They shared a presentation about their achievements in school over the year, which can be seen below. They then received a wristband and certificate to say they had successfully completed the training to be a digital leader.

The children also had the opportunity to speak to some visitors about some new technology and games and review them. They received a free mug for this too.

Well done to all the children involved. You have acted as role models to the rest of the school and your confidence has grown immensely. I am very proud of your maturity throughout the training but especially today.

A very proud Miss Charles 🙂

 

E-Safety Coffee Morning

Thank you to the parents who came along to our coffee morning on Friday. It was very interesting to find out how to keep children and ourselves safe online.

Here are some tips given by PCSO Luke Carson.

  • Protect your child online as much as you would in real life
  • Ensure that games and gaming sites are age appropriate
  • Remember that chat rooms are used inside games and children could be talking to strangers online
  • Apps all come with age restrictions and children in primary school should not be on most of them as they are 13+ or 16+ (Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Music.ly)
  • Check www.commonsensemedia.org to find out more about websites and apps
  • Protect your own family on adult accounts too by changing privacy settings, changing passwords including WiFi routers and not using public WiFi accounts
  • Check your child’s social media accounts, messages and computers randomly not scheduled or at the same time each week

Thank you again to Luke for coming in and informing us about this important subject.

If you would like more information about keeping safe online or the apps the children are using, do not hesitate to come and speak to us.

Year 5 Digital Leaders

Yesterday the digital leaders went on their second training day at the innovation centre in Bradford. They learnt how to make a 3D image on www.tinkercad.com, they made a badge and Mr Scott will be printing it on the 3D printer for us.

The children then learnt how to create a super safe password on www.howsecureismypassword.net. They have a few assignments to do in the next few weeks to earn their first few online badges so will be working on those in their own time and lunches.

The six children involved are very responsible and independent. I am very proud of their behavior yesterday and their attitudes in general.

Year 5 Digital Leaders

This morning the six Year 5 digital leaders went to the Innovation Centre for their first day of training. The children looked at the qualities they need to have to be a good digital leader and what they will need to do in school. They also talked about e-safety and why this is important.

After that the children had a go at using a green screen app. It was really fun but easy too. We will be able teach others in school now.

This Week At St Pauls

This week in school, it has been another spectacular, but educational week. Also, another week towards Year 6’s residential ( London ) and Cinderella and Rockerfella play. As well as this, many trips have occurred, for instance: Year 6’s trip to the Tesco workshop and their other trip to BBEC Career fair.

Year 5 are still currently learning about WW2 and so far they have learnt various facts. Not only are they being educated, they’re having fun at the same time.

At present, Year 3 are on a sensational residential for one night. It is the first time they have actually been on a residential.

Year 4, carrying on a roman topic, have been finishing their shields and have been designing their own coins. Furthermore, they have been doing data-handling including various graphs.

Using the internet or books, year 2 have been learning about African animals. They also made reports and read them to different classes.

In reception they are learning about life cycles. They hatched a caterpillar, which turned into a butterfly!

Another brilliant week counting down to our London trip and other great joys. For now have a happy half term holiday.

Year 6 Digital Leaders Update

Just before Christmas the Year 6 digital leaders were visited by Paul Scott from the innovation centre. He asked the children how their leadership was going and what they had been doing in school.

He then blogged about us on the Currciulum Innovation website. This can be found at; Curriculum Innovation Blog

Here is the article:

St Paul’s CE Digital Leaders

st pauls ceA few week ago I visited Jen Charles at St Paul’s C.E. Primary school in Wibsey. Her children had attended cohort 1 of our Bradford Digital Leader Academy in September and this was my chance to catch up with her and the Digital Leaders to see what they had achieved since the training.

The Digital Leaders are Jack , Bailey, Owain, Hashim, Luke and Jake and they were all very enthusiastic with their responses and with their roles as Digital Leaders. One of the first activities they undertook was to share what they had learnt at the training sessions and explain their roles as Digital Leaders and what they expected to be doing across the school. To support this the children are regularly updating their school blog with posts about their activities and have pleased to get several positive comments on the blog about their activities.

The DLs have been ensuring that laptops are available for use on a morning, that they are well looked after and locked away appropriately when not in use and on charge for the next group.

At the moment the DLs are meeting sporadically but they have plans to meet on a more regular basis after the Christmas holiday. The children are familiar with Edmodo but intend using it more often to feedback on their activities and collect their online badges and certificates.

The children have already been actively working on promoting E-Safety at school by delivering at a whole school assembly. In the assembly they covered password security including passwords safe and checking the strength of their password online at howsecureismypassword. They also looked at keeping safe online by avoiding online scams and being careful when doing image searches. They even discussed the idea of looking for copyright free images.

The children are planning on doing more blogging about what they are doing in the Spring term to share with the community and their parents.
