Another great e-safety week at Simon de Senlis. The children have been telling me what they have learnt this week and what they have done to keep themselves safe. It was also great to hear that the children have had discussions with their parents too after both attending e-safety workshops. Great work Einstein class, I am proud that you have such a positive and safe attitude to the internet.
DON’T FORGET TO DO YOUR E-SAFETY KEY SKILLS AND BRING THE SHEET IN TO ME EITHER TOMORROW OR THE FIRST WEEK BACK AFTER HALF TERM.
Here are a couple of our own digital footprints that we are creating this week.
Can you guess who they belong to?
What is it?
Where did it come from?
What is it doing in our playing field?
Lots of discussion when we got back into class…
It has come from a far off galaxy; it ran out of fuel; It was coming to investigate our planet.
Could there be more spaceships on the way? Had it a driver? Apparently some of year 5 children saw a green man running away through the trees…
This week, as the sun was out, we thought that we would go outside to learn some Maths.
There was lots of discussion about how to measure angles – where to place the protractor, was the angle acute of obtuse and also a bit of a competition to see who could measure most accurately. The children then applied these skills back in the classroom using a smaller protractor.
The children have also been finding out information this week about living in Africa. They were given some questions to investigate and used the devices to research – collecting their information from reading and watching short film clips.
“I like finding out the answers for myself.” Josh.
“I liked using the headphones because it was quiet, a nicer working environment.” Isabelle.
“I like investigating open questions, the answers are endless.” Olivia.
“By working together we take turns and share ideas. We get much more work done.” Gaby and Leah.
“I loved using the headphones. I could hear much better and I had more ideas.” Henry.
“We shared the headphones to watch different films and then shared our ideas with each other.” Sophie and Chloe.
“I like these types of lessons. It was quiet because everybody was working with headphones on and you could choose what you looked at to find out more information.” Soozha.
