Badger Class have the blog!

Hello there! We are Badger class from Roydon primary school in Norfolk and we are very excited to have the blog passed to us this week. We have been doing some work at our local fen and have just finished mapping some of our poems and stories. Take a look and tell us what you think! Please remember we are only 6 and 7 years old!

To look at some of our fabulous fen poems click on the play buttons, then click on the animals to return to the main screen.

We Are Animators!

Year 3 have been learning to be animators in ICT this term. They have looked at famous animations and then created their own mind map of what they would like their animation to look like. Children used spicynodes to create a mind map, this helped them then use this map to create their animation. They have produced some fantastic work!!

Our Digital Footprint

Over the past few weeks Year 10 have been developing their own websites about digital footprint. They have found it a very interesting and at times a thought provoking topic, with a lot of the students thinking about more carefully what they post online and also the long term impact it can have. Yesterday we revisited the inital topic to see if students perceptions have changed about digital footprint. We watched the following videos to promote discussion

We had a great discussion about what private actually means online and online friends. Although most students protect their Facebook accounts the videos certainly made them think more about what they post online. We then added a number of ideas to a share Lino.it. If you can’t see the canvas below please click on this link

We have been developing website based around the theme of digital footprint and the URLs of the sites are below. Whilst these are very much work in progress i’m sure the students would love some feedback on their progress so far.

Digital Identity Theft Games in Kodu

In Year 8 this year we are using Kodu to create games about Digital Identity Fraud. The main aim of our games is to use Kodu to create a game where the player tries to reclaim all the pieces/items of their digital identity such as bank details, passport number while meeting other characters in the game.

 

My game is about taking back the money you got stolen from digital ID theft. The aim is to collect all items (coins) to score points, defeat all enemies and complete all the worlds. Once you defeat the last ID thief, you are presented with your score and the game ends. Combat is included for example health and fighting. I have enjoyed Kodu as it is user friendly and not complicated; programming was easy. Although there were a few problems with collecting coins, nothing has gone wrong.

Rattle Run in Scratch

The scratch game called Rattle Run. I really enjoyed making this game because it was a real challenge and it is close to the original. It was the coding that was the real challenge. Although it was simplified down into blocks of code. Altogether this game was very successful! I feel very confident in making scratch games and look forward to a more challenging task ahead.

Because your beautiful

We used Serif MoviePlus to create the video about peer pressure. We picked the subject because people feel it everyday. We planned the video together and the 3 of us collected the pictures and downloaded the music track. After we made the video we recording the voice over using the little mini MP3 microphones and edited. Please let us know what you think of the video
The “Because your beautiful” team 😉

Animal Cruelty

We decided to choose animal cruelty as our subject because we both love animals and as a joint decision we decided it was a big issue today that we we feel needed highlighting. We planned our video to help us along the way by finding facts and images that we felt were suitable and appropriate for our video.

We put our video together on Serif Movie Plus after using several other programs as we felt is was very easy to use.

We really enjoyed making our video and hope it could raise awareness
