Computing

 

Our Year 1 children in computing have been learning about algorithms.   They have learnt that computers follow algorithms which are instructions.   On Thursday 28th September the children worked in groups to direct BeeBots around our classroom.  We loved having our own mini robots to instruct!  (10.10.17)

Internet Safety

There is a new resource for parents and carers about internet safety.  "Video guides for the free ISP parental controls".   These guidelines have been produced by Safer internet who have been working with BT, Sky, Talk Talk and Virgin Media, who have each made short video clips outlining where you can find their free parental controls, what they do and how you set them up.  

These films are available on the UK Safer Internet Centre website and you can embed the films if you want to use them or download them.  See http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-and-resources/parents-and-carers/parental-controls .  Do please make use of them and let people know about them.     The ISPs have committed to keeping these films updated, and if you embed the films on your site, we are able to update them for you if they change
