As an introduction to recounts in Literacy, we used the app 1-4-0 to write a short recount in no more than 140 characters (1-4-0 App name)We then edited our work displaying it in the format of a Tweet that you would reading on Twitter. Everyone was very keen to retell their favourite day in the summer in as much detail as possible in no more than 140 characters.
Internet Safety Awareness
As part of our work in ICT we looked at the positive factors and the negative factors of the Internet. We researched computer programs and sites which are secure and also looked at dangers we face on the internet. We then played a 3D Maze game on the learning platform Purple Mash. We tried to find the icons of the sites, programs and people who make our time on the internet safe while avoiding those sites, virus and unsecured sites who were trying to catch us. The best bit was making our own 3D computer maze game. We were able to download our own Aviators and graphics from the web safely now knowing what sites to avoid.
