Interviews Done @RRIS

What a busy two weeks we have had!  Over 4 afternoons all the children have been interviewed.  There were 4 children at each interview and we asked them lots of questions about becoming Digital Leaders and Helpers.  It seems such a shame that we can only have 4 Leaders per class, but are pleased that all the other applicants can be Helpers as everyone was so good we want them all to have a job.  Next week we will start all the computer tasks to see how they get on using Textease.  We are looking for lots of resilience to keep going even if they get a bit stuck 🙂

Applications Come Flooding In @RRIS

Today was the last day that the Year 1 children could hand in their application forms and we had a staggering 73 applications! Over the next two weeks all the children who applied will have an interview and a computer task – we can’t wait to chat to them all!

Application Assembly @RRIS

So the day finally arrived and we very bravely stood in front of all the year 1 children and told them all about being in the digital team.  Everyone sat and listened carefully and we are looking forward to receiving all the application forms back soon.

Assembly Script Writing @RRIS

Tomorrow we will be presenting our special assembly to the Year 1 children about becoming digital leaders and helpers.

We looked through all the photographs of us being busy and all the things that we had learnt to do and wrote a little bit to go with it that we were happy to read out in assembly.  There will be 120 children watching so we need to use our best voices! We hope that lots of children want to apply.

Colouring Our Game Board @RRIS

This week the Digital Leaders and Helpers have  been learning how to fill in their game board pathway and background.  The boards really have started to look good – next time we will be adding the text and clipart.

Making Esafety Board Games @RRIS

This term the digital leaders and helpers are making board games with an esafety message.

We started by designing our board pathway on a paper grid and then transferring that on to Textease, by using the grid pattern and snapping the lines to the dots.  Next time we will be adding a coloured background and choosing colours for the pathway.

All the helpers were given their team badges.

Making Posters @RRIS

This week the digital leaders used the images they had saved from Pixabay in the last lesson and put them into a poster using Textease.  This was the first time that they had to navigate through their files to find the images and add them to their work.  It took a little bit of practice but everyone helped each other to finish their work.  They printed the posters out to put on their bedroom door.  This week they will be showing their classmates how to do this.
