Digital Leaders

 

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.

E-Safety Coffee Morning (THIS FRIDAY)

As you are aware internet safety is a key issue for most parents and schools in this ever changing and technology driven world. The NSPCC state, 1 in 4 children have experienced something upsetting on a social networking site” and 1 in 3 children have been a victim of cyber-bullying”

We want to keep the children at St.Paul’s as safe as possible online. On Friday, PCSO Luke Carson has been invited to present some information to parents and carers about children’s safety online. All parents and carers are welcome to come and hear ways in which we can keep children safe and also be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

The coffee morning will start at 8:45 and there will be refreshments. Please let us know if you would like to attend by returning the slip on the letter, phoning or calling in at the office or commenting below.

Thank you

 

Year 5 Music Production BBEC Final Session

On Friday, Year 5 had their final session at BBEC with Mr Theakston. They created a new soundtrack for Flintstones and included sound effects too. They were really good and some were really funny too.

Thank you to BBEC and Mr Theakston for allowing us to have these sessions. The children have really enjoyed it and have gained lots of skills too.

Year 5 BBEC Music Production

Over the last few weeks Year 5 have been learning how to create and edit music at BBEC. They have been creating background music for a video clip. They had to choose the music as well as creating different volumes in different parts of the clip.

Well done for being well behaved, polite and helping each other.

 

Year 5 Music Production Lesson 1 BBEC

Today Year 5 went to BBEC to learn some music production skills. They used garage band to create a new ringtone for a mobile phone. They all had to choose different layers and build up the track using drums and string etc. They sounded fantastic.

Thank you to Mr Theakston at BBEC for showing us how to do it. See you next week.

What did you like best?What did you learn?

Internet Safety Day 2017

Well done to our digital leaders.

This morning our very talented digital leaders lead an assembly about being safe on the internet.

They worked on a slideshow for a few weeks, on their own and practised it in a team. They told the whole school about how to stay safe and SMART online. They answered questions from the rest of the school and checked out some passwords on https://howsecureismypassword.net/ 

Miss Charles has also launched an internet safety poster competition for the whole school. If you want to enter design a poster (on the computer or by hand) and hand it to Miss Charles by the closing date, which is Friday 10th February. Good luck!

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.
