Tree Octopus Research @RRIS

This week the Digital Leaders and Helpers did some research for the Year 1 children all about the Tree Octopus!

We had no idea that the tree octopus even existed – it is amazing the kind of information you can find on the internet – it’s is almost too hard to believe!

Felix – It was a good thing to learn, I didn’t know there was a tree octopus until today

Elfie – The website was quite interesting, I didn’t know the tree octopus had so many colours!

Using the Internet @RRIS

This week the digital leaders and helpers have been learning the basics of using an internet browser.  They have been learning how to use lots of tabs at the same time (multi-tab browsing) and switching between the tabs also minimizing and maximizing the screen.  We also talked about what to do if we ever came across something which was not suitable for us, by turning off the screen and calling over an adult to see.

“It wasn’t difficult to open all the websites or switch between them”  Sulli

“It was really, really fun!” Willow

Designing our Avatar @RRIS

This week the digital leaders made their avatar for their lanyard. We talked about how important it was to not always use real pictures of ourselves when we use websites. We used two different avatar creators Doppelme and Lego Avatar Creator.  All the digital leaders will be showing their classmates how to make one for them to use. Can you recognise who we are?

“It was very fun, I preferred the lego maker, but both were good”  Willow

Our First Skype Chat @RRIS

We were so excited to be having our very first digital leader meet up over Skype! At lunch time today a group of the leaders met up with digital leaders in Year 2 from Fakenham Infant School. We were all very excited and crossed our fingers that it was going to work and after a few hiccups, it did :)

We were very pleased to meet each other.  Fakenham DL’s showed us the work they had been doing about esafety and we asked each other lots of questions.  We are really excited about meeting up again together soon.
