Digital literacy and online safety: Anti –bullying week

In Year 5, we have been reading a book called ‘When Charlie McButton lost power’ by Suzanne Collins.

We have used to book to link with our Anti – Bulling lessons, digital literacy, and online safety.

The children have discussed the dilemma in the story and how it made the other characters feel and respond, as well the consequences for the main character.

We then , took part in discussions on all aspects of bullying, played games and used the computers to take part in activities which involved the importance of online safety, such as:

  • Passwords, then created our own safe password.
  • What PEGI means and the different ratings and symbols.
  • Using online platforms safely, by knowing what to share and what not to share.
  • What issues might arise online and how/where to report them.

 

Lest we forget!

To remember those who have fallen and those who serve.

Year 5 have created their own Remembrance Poppy art pieces, using parts of an original picture.

The children have selected materials and techniques to use to create a specific outcome. Used control and experimented particular qualities of tone, shades, hue and mood. Considered colour for purposes and used colour to express moods and feelings.

 

I think you will agree they are master pieces.

Black History Day

To celebrate Black history month, Year 5 have been researching to gain information, using a range of skills from a variety of curriculum subjects.

The children have focused their work on Maya Angelou. The children have investigated her life and achievements, create their own Maya Angelou inspired poem and produced artwork related to her poetry.
