This year the Digital Helpers have their own dedicated meeting and the first one was held this week.
We have some exciting Ollies and Spheros which are programmable robots that you can steer! The Digital Helpers worked with a partner and really enjoyed exploring what they could do. They couldn’t wait to go and tell their classmates all about them.

This week the digital leaders made their avatar for their lanyard. We talked about how important it was to not always use real pictures of ourselves when we use websites. We used two different avatar creators Doppelme and Lego Avatar Creator. All the digital leaders will be showing their classmates how to make one for them to use. Can you recognise who we are?

We were so excited to be having our very first digital leader meet up over Skype! At lunch time today a group of the leaders met up with digital leaders in Year 2 from Fakenham Infant School. We were all very excited and crossed our fingers that it was going to work and after a few hiccups, it did 🙂
We were very pleased to meet each other. Fakenham DL’s showed us the work they had been doing about esafety and we asked each other lots of questions. We are really excited about meeting up again together soon.
That very important moment has come when we need to design a new logo for the 2017-18 Digital Team! We looked at all the logos that had been designed before and thought carefully about our design. Which design would you pick? All the year 2 classes are now having their vote to choose the winner!
After last week’s meeting with all our ideas about what we would like to achieve this school year, the Digital Leaders signed their new job role agreement. They certainly want to do a lot of things 🙂
The new Digital Leaders will meet once a fortnight on a Monday and today was our very first meeting! We got to know each other and talked about all the things we are looking forward to doing as Digital Leaders at RRIS. We worked with a partner to write down ideas of all the things we think are important and they are going to be part of our roles and responsibilities.
After a bit of a delayed start the new Digital Leaders were finally announced this afternoon – here they all are! They can’t wait to get started on their new job next week. This year we are having 4 Leaders in each of our year 2 classes, with 2 Helper guests each meeting to join us. The Helpers are also going to attend their own meetings on Thursday lunchtimes when they can test out some gadgets! Exciting times ahead for us all.
How quickly this year has flown by and how everyone has grown! I will be very sorry to see all the digital leaders leave, they have been absolutely marvellous 🙂 I wonder who the next lot will be?
Phew! That was hard work – all 90 interviews have taken place so next week it will be time for all the applicants to do their task – how resilient will they be if it gets tough?
