We celebrated Safer Internet Day (SID 2018) on Tuesday 6th February.

We had some fun activities such as Super Selfie, MySelfie and the wider world, the Granny Rule, and making posters to help promote safer internet for all of us.

We also worked on an online code and debated issues such as ‘cyber bullying’. We all received a SID2018 wristband which reminds us that it UP2US to keep safe online.

This is the annual Hour of Code week and we are busy coding with all classes. Coding is very popular with the boys and we it is made even more attractive now with the integration of Star Wars, Minecraft, Flappy Birds and Moana. Hour of Code week is supported by many of the world’s celebrities in sport and IT. We will be following this up with some Scratch coding.

We are preparing for World Maths Week by setting up our accounts on Mangahigh, World Education Games and Hour of Code. This month we have access to websites that will not be available after October so we hope to get lots of maths practice.

The boys are all delighted with our new laptop / tablet computers.

They are especially happy to have touch screens and have one computer each in the classroom. ICT_infants
