Can we log in?

This year we have learned how to log in.  We found it very difficult in September but now 9 months later we can do it all by ourselves, with NO HELP from Mr Connolly.

When we logged in we had to navigate to the blog before we could play the games. (Mums and Dads although we are playing games we are using many other skills without realising…

  • reading and comprehension to work out how to play the game.
  • Fine motor control – Mouse control / touch pad
  • Hand to eye coordination – a necessary  skill with ever present screen technology.
  • Number value – high scores!
  • As well as tactics

All these things learned when they are younger and more engage with technology is one major reason they will beat you beat you easily at FIFA 2020 If not before! Sorry.

Say cheese…

In Computing today we have been using the iPads to take lots of pictures.

We posed standing and sitting even lying down!


And even some selfies, but we aren’t quite as professional as Miss Tallentire at taking them yet!  

We had to use Mr Connolly’s top tips.

  • Make sure the camera is at the top… (It saves work later)
  • Keep fingers out the way.
  • Stop the wobble.
  • If we are taking a person pick… Shoulders, waist or whole body don’t chop off the feet!

We could even have a go at taking some at home if our mums and dads let us use the phones.
