Stage 2 students started the term by revising their word processing skills and produced a pass card to take home to keep all their passwords safe.
The technology focus for Term 1 in Kindergarten is learning how to log into the school computers. All our Kindies can manage the ctrl/alt/delete buttons and type their first name now without any help whilst about half of the kindies can log in to the computers and access the internet without any assistance at all.
Well done Kindies. That's fantastic work!
Here is an activity we completed last week called Alphabetimals.
Using the Alphabetimals site, the children typed in their name and then printed it (with a bit of help to find the correct printer) They all thought that making their names out of animals was great fun.
Today's featured work comes from Stage 1. This term they have been reading lots of fairy tales. During technology lessons, they used PowerPoint to create some animated fairy tales.
This week I'll be posting some samples of activities students have completed during this term.
The first one is from the photography workshop day run for Stage 3 students by Moran photography.
After learning some very useful skills, tips and tricks for taking photos the students set up their cameras and tried out some of the features, settings and effects which could be used.
They then went out around the school and put what they had learned to the test.
Here is a selection of some of the beautiful pictures they took
