Holbrook Primary – Year 1

Look what we are learning.

It’s not real!

After doing so well learning to log in we are going to look at how computers allow us to try things in the real world we couldn’t usually do or that might be dangerous.  These have a special name – SIMULATIONS

So that we can properly play the SIMULATION without disturbing our neighbour we are going to learn to use the headphones all on our own! There are three things that can stop them working properly!

  • Are the plug in properly.
  • Is the volume turned on?
  • Is the sound turned up?

Remember they will only play sound if a website has some sound on!

Point the way… Arrow Keys!

This week in computing we are making sure we can log in to the new laptop as it is a little different from the old laptops – and actually easier as we don’t need to press three buttons at the same time to login.

This week the game uses some different keys – the arrow keys.

They make the yellow circle – Pacman – move around the maze.  But stay away from the ghosts or you might get eaten!  Pacman needs to munch up all the yellow food to get to the next level.
