We started our new computing topic today… Data!
We started off by talking about what data is looking at how we collect it.
We used animals at a zoo to help with this concept.
The children then worked in groups to collect some data and represent this.
They they had a go at drawing and collecting their own data and shared this with their friends.
A brilliant first session!
Today in computing we were focusing on considering the feelings of people around them, even when engaged in fun online activities.
We used the following Key Questions-
- Why should you take a break from a device when a friend says hi?- It’s important to pause and acknowledge the people around you. The people in real-life might want to tell you something important, ask a question or play with you.
- Why should you invite your friend to play when they are all alone?- Just like in real-life it is important not to exclude anyone…this is the same on a device.
- Why is it a good idea to turn off your device before going to bed?- Doctors say that it is best to sleep without devices turned on so that we don’t get distracted whilst we are trying to sleep.
- Why should you ask permission before taking someone’s phone?- A phone or tablet is someone’s personal property, you should always ask permission before taking someone else’s device. This includes your parents/carers. Treat their devices with respect!
