During Computing with Mr Baddhan today, Bluebirds learned about Pop Art and the artist Andy Warhol. They learned about his work and how he made things look interesting using some of his artistic work. We looked at the type of effects he used to make everyday things look interesting and coourful.
Bluebirds used a Pop Art website to add Andy Warhol effects to their own photos. Have a look at the wonderful work they produced to make their photos look interesting.
During Computing with Mr Baddhan, Year 3 Bluebirds have been programming dancing sprites using motion, repetition and looks blocks. They also added sound from the library.
The children put together a sequence of instructions using the above blocks to make their sprites move across the stage. They then used the switch costume block to change the dance move of their sprite.
As part of Anti Bullying Week, in our online safety lesson we were looking at our online reputation and the things that we should share online and the things that we shouldn’t. We discussed different things that could be shared and decided that anything that was our own personal information shouldn’t be shared with others.
This week, Bluebirds had an online safety lesson to understand how to create a powerful word. They chose their favourite colour, number and food. The children combined these with symbols, using upper and lower case letters, to create an effective password, longer than 8 digits.
This week, Bluebirds enjoyed an interesting “unplugged” computing lesson, to understand the difference between the World Wide Web and the Internet. After learning about this, the class completed a close activity to check their understanding. Lots of children learnt new information so it was a really worthwhile lesson!
On Friday, Bluebirds were introduced to the SMART acronym with a fun but informative video about considerations for keeping safe on line. Afterwards, Bluebirds were busy designing posters to show their understanding.
