As part of our computing lesson, Kestrels we’re learning about how to safely search the internet as well as how search engines rank results and targeted advertisements may be used.
As part of our computing learning journey, year 5 have been exploring how websites are ranked by creating our own webpages.
During Kestrels’ Computing lesson, they discussed the importance of not giving true information about themselves, out online. They also used their skills to create an avatar so that people would not be able to recognise them. Take a look, they were very creative!
This week, the children in year 5 have been testing their knowledge of the internet as well as the World Wide Web, they were asked to put their thoughts up on the flip chart to start the lesson, they then matched up lots of computer language with their meanings.
Year 5 have been looking at how setting a chroma-key such as green can be used for “green screen magic”
They then had a go at creating their own weather reports!
The children in year 5 have been studying all about Kings & Queens in History. They focused on how the Magna Carta came about and put together a production to show their understanding.
This week the children in year 5 were studying how to create shapes using LOGO. They followed precise instructions and created some very impressive shapes. They are becoming competent computational thinkers, solving problems they come across with ease. Well done Kestrels!
This week, Year 5 have been putting together spreadsheets to calculate rainfall. They were so confident inputting statistics for the average rainfall in Norway and Wales and produced some excellent graphs to demonstrate their new knowledge. Well done Kestrels!
