Raspberry Pi’s

As a result of us taking part in the Worldwide Hour of Code in December we have been sent 5   Raspberry Pi Kits. It is  a computer that you can use for all sorts of things, we will be looking at how they can be used in the future. The kits were given to schools by Raspberry Pi and Google with other sponsor’s also involved including OCR who gave us our Pi’s.

This is what it looks like and it is just a bit bigger that a mobile phone.

Year 1 2 eSafety

Before half term Years 1 & 2 attended an eSafety workshop and watched a video about Lee & Kim. They learnt how to stay safe online, to keep their personal information secret and that they should tell an adult if anything worries or upsets them.

This week in ICT they created posters & comic strips using 2Publish to share the information they found out.

We hope you enjoy looking at some of our work.
