During week 9 students had some fun being involved in ‘The Hour Of Code’ using some computer science.

 Nevaeh completed this program up to level 7. Amazing!

 Rreze and Isabella were amazing programing the animals in this coding game.

Our grade two students are really good at formatting images now. This week we had to choose two animals we’d like to be and then we had to use these skills to blend the two pictures.

We even created some silly scary Halloween images…

This week the grades one and two students have begun learning how to format and crop images. The images are hilarious. Here’s some for your enjoyment…

Grade two students were asked to build on their ‘Pivot Animation’ skills from last year by changing the file type to a ‘Gif’. Some of the students have an amazing talent in this area. Here’s some for your entertainment!

Netsmartz Kids  Remember to use your student code to log in (First 3 letters of your last name and 4 digits.)

Grade two students have been working hard practicing their new learning goals. They began learning how to use their student codes to log in. This is a grade 3 step however most of the students have already mastered this. These are the next learning goals we’ve covered so far during term one 2018; Opening Power Point, editing text, inserting animated images, transitions, background designs and audio. We focussed on Cyber Safety and DT Rules for this topic. We also had create our own avatars and there was some very funny ones for me to view. Students are getting really confident at saving their own documents into our school network drive. Here is some avatars we saved to share with you…

At the end of the year I ask the grade 3-6 students to post a comment underneath their year level page on this blog and use this as a guide to plan for 2018. The grade two students tell me what to type and we post a grade ‘Reflection’. Check out room 6 and room 4’s reflection right down the bottom of this page.

Here’s some samples of the student’s work using Code…click on one of these to see the images come alive!

It’s assessment time so the Grade 2 students have been busy working on their post tests to show the learning growth made throughout this year. I’ve attached the ‘Brief’ for students to follow and I will upload some examples of students that have made incredible progress in DT this year.

Thanks Lewcas and Blair for your awesome work. Wow you’ve both shown amazing progress this year!

Grade Two Students were asked to share about their holidays using some of the ICT skills they’ve been learning using ‘Microsoft Word’. Some of these skills are; formatting the page using colours, borders, text type and adding in images with frames. They were also asked to display their information using either paragraphs, a table or dot points.

Here’s my example and one of the student from room 6, Zulmira.

After the holidays we published work using the program POWER POINT to tell Mrs Miller what we did…

We had some fun creating Easter egg designs and hiding them in a field for our friends to find. “Our very own Interactive Easter Egg Hunt.”

Grade 2 Term 2 Well done Ella Mundy & Izabelle Suric for achieving all their goals. Next semester they will be working on some grade 3 goals. Here’s their projects for you to view…

Term 1 Week 3

During ICT we completed a pre-test to see what goals we remembered from last year. We were asked to explore ‘Encarta Kids’ and choose some information and an image of something that interested us. We then had to use snipping tool to capture the info and save it into our folders.

Some of us forgot how to use snipping tool, some of us forgot how to save because there is lots of doorways to go through to find our own folders. We will complete this task again next term and see if we’ve improved.

These three students achieved all of the goals and are now ready to begin different ones. Congratulations Noah, Tillie and Logan B!

  1. Room 4 DT 2017 Reflection
    Our strengths are using PIVOT, using Word, using the snipping tool, copying and pasting using the right click.
    We are looking forward to learning about emailing our friends and family, other Coding programs and finding different shortcuts.
    We enjoyed PIVOT, the Santa list, Zimmer Twins and getting better at using Word & Power Point.

  2. Room 6 2017 DT Reflection
    Our strengths in computers are saving our work, using ‘Word’, using coding like PIVOT and logging in to different programs.
    Next year we want to learn how to play Duo Lingo, more fun games, how to keep safe online and learn about old and new computer parts.
    This year we enjoyed playing ‘Cool Maths Games’, making the camp project, making PIVOT movies and making a Christmas list.
