This week Year 4 Robins have been taking part in Safer Internet Week with alot of learning through lessons and assemblies.
Today Robins discussed their understanding and thought of examples of what a bystander is. Afterwards, they learnt all about being an “upstander” and discussed how to be one.
In groups they looked at some examples of scenarios which could occur using technology such as text conversations and forwarding of photos and emojis. Children learnt how upstanders deal with situations positively.
Mrs Knipe came into class at the end of the session and Sophie Memory explained to her what the class had learnt.
During the first Computing lesson with Mr Baddhan today, Robins used an iPad app called Hopscotch, where they learned how to program characters to perform an action using instructions.
The children explored the app initially, then used their previous programming knowledge to move characters around the screen. The children showed good understanding of building algorithms and Mr Baddhan was pleased to see children adding different algorithms to different characters. They also showed their knowledge to debug their code to fix mistakes.
Year 4 Robins received a request from Larry who is the nightwatchman at the museum!
He explained he had an important job and was in charge of the priceless Ancient Greek antiquities. However, there had been an accident… so he needed the class to help piece the pots back together!
In teams, Robins eagerly pieced the pots back together and discovered each one had a different picture on.
Next, the children had to consider what was happening in the picture and then explain what they thought this told us about Ancient Greeks. We discussed this is how historians and archaeologists find out about life in the past.
In their next lesson, Robins were able to use their computing skills and use the internet to research each different type of pot and find out what each one was used for.
Larry was really impressed with all their hard work – “Good job Robins!”
