This week the digital leaders have been using the Zimmer Twins website to make their own animated comic strip stories. In fact one of the Reception classes saw what we had done and had a go making one together which is amazing!
“I started off picking what I wanted the character to do and then I got a speech bubble and started to write! You can choose between 3 different characters. It is easy to make a story quickly. I am going to make one at home.”
“I made a story about 13 the cat, he teleports and goes in a trolley! It’s really random!”
“My story is about the cat it teleports in the park. It is really easy to do. I am looking forward to teaching my class how to do it.”
“The cat was sleeping and wakes up and the girl is there and he speaks to her. It is easy to make a story. I really liked it.”
“The characters go to a rock competition and they teleport to a forest and outer space. It is easy to do.”
“The boy goes on stage and plays his guitar and the girl goes on too and plays her guitar and they sing too.”
Here is our second set of games – why not download them and play them in your school on Safer Internet Day! Click on the links underneath the pictures – you should be able to print them out at A4 size.

This half term the Digital Leaders and year 2 are making board games for the year 1 children to play based around the theme of e-safety. Firstly we designed the game on paper and are now transferring that to Textease – using snap to grid to make the game look super smart. We will be adding a bit to the game board each week ready to play it in our Internet Safety week.
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.
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.
