A Warm Welcome Dear Parents/Guardians,

Another great term has been completed by the students of AIC Kewdale primary.

Some highlights to look forward to in this terms newsletter are:

  • Hardware and Software
  • Input, output and storage devices
  • Infographics
  • Digital Citizenship
  • CoSpaces – exploring augmented and virtual reality
  • Scratch – Coding platform
  • Robotics

Year 1 & 2

This term students continued their learning about basic computer hardware. We also looked at online safety and how to be good citizens online.

Students have also used computers and started practice on the keyboard using BBC Dance mat and Typetastic.

Year 3

This term students have been introduced to Ozobots. We were exploring coding through robotics. They identified different routes and actions the Ozobot sensors read as they explore various colour codes.

Year 4

Students have been learning about input, output and storage devices. They participated in various activities to identify the devices. Students have used Class Notebook to complete their tasks and have created a PowerPoint on Office365 to showcase their understanding.

Year 5

This term students were exploring coding through Scratch and creating project to explore the various coding features.

Students logins were also created to ensure that they can save, share, explore and practice using Scratch at school and at home.

Year 6

This term students developed strategies on how to be a responsible digital citizen and be safe online.  

We began our term by exploring Digital Citizenship. Students explored various software/apps and researched how to act as a good Digital Citizen while using the app/software. Students also created an Infographic on Canva to show their knowledge of ICT etiquette.

Our students have also had the opportunity to explore the features of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual reality (VR) through CoSpaces. CoSpaces is a mixed reality web-based application that allows users to create and engage with interactive media content.

Students created an All About Me and creative environment project that can be featured through VR.
