One Day To Go! @RRIS!

There is a real buzz around school as tomorrow the new Digital Leaders for 2019-20 will be announced. I am really looking forward to visiting the classes to let the children know who will be taking on the role. There are lots of jobs to be done around school so all those new Helpers (and there will be over 50 of them!) will be very welcome too. Not long to go!

All ready to go!

Goodbye and Good Luck @RRIS

Thank you for being so brilliant!

It’s time to say goodbye to this amazing bunch and I am now looking forward to meeting all the new teams in September.

Survey @RRIS

I can’t believe that we are at the end of such an amazing year and that my wonderful Digital Team are ready to leave and go to their new schools.

In our last meeting we filled in some questionnaires all about being a Digital Leader so I can see what everyone enjoyed and how I can try and make it even better for next year.

Tasks Done @RRIS

Phew! What another busy week we have had! Everybody who applied to be a Digital Leader or Helper has had a task to complete on the computer or iPad supported by the Digital Leaders. We were looking to see how everyone managed when they were working on their own and how resilient they were if they got a bit stuck. Everyone got the task completed and we were so impressed. Choosing the next group of Leaders is going to be tricky stuff. The new Leaders will find out in September.

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.

Safer Internet Day 2019 @RRIS

Today the Digital Leaders and Helpers were preparing for Safer Internet Day by using all the Espresso Online Safety videos, activities and books.  Next week they will be presenting an internet safety assembly to all the school!  They are very excited about it and sharing all the good advice about keeping safe when using the computer and the internet – however  you do it!
