Over the last term Mrs Swift and Mrs Lindley have been joining forces and team teaching the children lots of new skills on the computers.
In the first half term they became illustrators and authors. We introduced them to a program called Tux Paint which allowed them to use various tools to draw houses. After initially experimenting with the different effects they could create the children were asked more specifically to draw their own house and add text to their drawing.
Following on from this and linked to the class topic of Keyworth the children were set the challenge of becoming information gatherers. A lot of the children knew that if they wanted to find out something they could 'Google it'. However they didn't really understand how google worked. We introduced them to the term - Search Engine. We talked about having to put words into Google, or any other search engine, so that it could hunt down information about that subject.
The children found out that if you put Keyworth Primary School into Google some pictures came up of a school in London! This helped the children to realise that the more specific your words are the better search engine results you get. They now know to type in Keyworth Primary School Nottingham.
We then found the snipping tool very useful to cut out pictures from the internet and place them into a word document ready for us to write all about them.
