This term the students in 4R are learning about different forms of communication. Last week they participated in some Communication rotations with Miss Tappy where they learnt about Braille and this week they will visit Mr Pryor. In our grade we learnt about Hieroglyphics and the country where it originated from, Egypt. The children went to ICT and printed out their names in hieroglyphs and completed some of the puzzles using the Egyptian numerical system.
We also started discussing and talking about digital communications and apps. We are currently working on a datachart of the different apps available for children and adults to use and the positive and negative aspects of each app. The website below is a very helpful resource for parents, teachers and students produced by the Australian Government Department of Communications. It provides people with information on how to handle cyberbullying, security and protecting their personal information.
