Safer Internet Day 2017 @RRIS

Our school has registered to be a Safer Internet Day supporter and over the next 5 weeks all the year 2 children will be designing esafety board games for the year 1 children to play.  We will be having an extra special focus in Internet Safety Day week too.

Learning to Take Photos @RRIS

This week we have been thinking about what makes a good photograph and we found out that taking a good one is a lot harder than just pointing the ipad and clicking the buttton!  We tried to make sure that our photos were in focus, that the subject matter was central (and that we didn’t cut off heads or feet), that we didn’t focus on the wrong thing – like the carpet, wall or ceiling!  We shared our photos with each other at the end of the session and thought about what went well and what didn’t!  We will use everything we have learnt to take some great photos for our iMovies which we will be making after Christmas.Taking Photos @RRIS Taking Photos @RRIS Taking Photos @RRIS

Taking Our Esafety Survey @RRIS

What busy bees we have  been this week!  On Monday afternoon some of the digital leaders sat one to one with some children from Owl’s class to support them with creating their posters using the Pixabay images they had saved from the previous week.  If that wasn’t enough work they then helped out with a survey!  Using google forms all the digital leaders answered some questions about esafety, which is going to be really helpful in making sure everyone knows how to keep safe when using the internet and mobile devices.  Good job everyone 🙂

We Are in the BETT Magazine @RRIS

After our visit to BETT at the beginning of the year, the new brochure came out to advertise BETT 2017 – and guess what? There was a lovely picture of one of last year’s digital leaders 🙂 Can you spot her – look out for the bright yellow lanyard!

Have a look at the brochure here

Our Lanyards Have Arrived @RRIS

It’s been a long wait, but well worth it!  The Digital Leaders were very excited to receive their new lanyards and identity badges in assembly (especially as it was Children in Need day and some were dressed up too!)  We would like to say a big thank you to Identibadge who sponsored us and did such a fantastic job and made them look so amazing.

Making Posters with Pixabay Images @RRIS

This week we have been using the Pixabay images we saved last week, to make posters for our bedrooms! We think they look brilliant and can’t wait to show our classes how to do it.

Using Pixabay @RRIS

This week we have been learning to use Pixabay to search for and save copyright and royalty free images.  We talked about how important it is to only use pictures if someone else has said we can and using pictures from google isn’t allowed!!  We learnt to use the right mouse button for the first time and found it a little bit tricky but we managed. Next week we are going to put our saved pictures in to Textease to make ourselves a nice poster for our bedroom wall.

Research Task @RRIS

This week we have been learning how to research safely from a website.  Year 1 have  been learning all about the Tree Octopus and we helped them out by learning about it too!  We had a questionnaire which we had to fill in.  Did you know that the Tree Octopus can come in all sorts of different colours and that that they can live in the snow?  Next week the Digital Leaders will show their classes how they can access the website too and remember that Kidrex is the safe search engine, especially made for children.
