Year 3

Internet Safety

Week

Plan – Combine programs to create an end result- Using Word/2paint – Pattern, make a poster

1

Watch video

·        Discuss safety on the internet and reasons why you should not click on

·        Discuss the advantages and dangers of using the internet

·        Make posters to correspond to safety and none safety points.

2

See what children remember about word and explain about different features.

 

This week set out foundation for poster.  Minimize work and draw their own picture to transfer into word. Linking two programs.  Think about what makes a poster.

3

Use the internet to find picture then copy and paste.

4

Use WordArt to add a slogan that helps others reading the poster to think about internet safety. Show how to add a colour to the background and how to add extra things, like shadow or glow to their words. Use text direction in format, then copy and paste and change direction then align both.

5

Add a text box at the bottom, colour the background one colour so it matches the rest of the poster, then add a question at the bottom for example - Are you safe on the internet?

6

Tidy-up/check their own spellings, using spell-checker/Show some of the children’s work on whiteboard.

Communication/Collaboration

Year 3

Communication/Collaboration – Internet Research

Week

Plan – What are search engines

1

 Look at internet safety sites.

·        Talk about the best ways to search for information

·        Look at the order things are set out, explain how to check for adverts

·        Search for different out comes but same results.

·        Explain how to find child friendly websites.

2

Demonstrate a 3 word search and show children the bold words highlighted, explain these are the words that found the site.

Show where the address of each search is.  Children answer questions on year 3 lesson two.

3

(Use Internet Safety) Show children how to find Similar sites  Using ‘Tools’ show how to change search so it’s just UK sites. Using ‘Settings’ show how to turn on SafeSearch. 

Go through the different buttons Show children how to

·        Choose another folder and save –

·        Start new folder

·        Use drop down arrow

·        Make new folder and name it

·        Demonstrate how to save websites into their own

·        Give children a set subject and tell them to find 3 good websites and save.  Show how to find saved bookmarks.

Ask children what they need to look for at home when using search, remind them that in school they are a lot safer.

4

Ask children which social media programs they know about and which other forms of communicate they know? Which are the safest? What information can and cannot be shared? Create a tally using most popular

Using this children make a graph in Excel.

5

Talk about stranger danger and real friends – Who should we trust? 2Publish make a poster.

6

In pairs answer the following questions answer set questions

Discuss results ask how they could act responsibly and safely online?

Open website Kids Smart and answer question sheet.

Aim

Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information.

Programming 

Year 3

Programming – Logo/Scratch

Week

Plan – Use algorithms to move an interactive figure on screen

1

Ask children what they remember about how to use turtle. Explain about angles.  Get the children to draw a square and rectangle. Draw the same shapes but use the backwards commands.

Draw square and rectangle again but this time use the repeat command. Next write SH if finish write their initials.

Talk about Pen up/Pen down.

2

Give the children 2 minutes to draw as many squares as possible – see if any remember the repeat command and if

See if they can figure out how to draw a dotted line.

Show how to clear screen and set to home, then play about with repeat to try and draw a circle.

Repeat last activity, but this time draw a triangle, write correct commands down.

3

Look at worksheet one and see if the children can estimate a shape, then get their robot to draw the shape by inputting code into computer, to see if they have estimated correctly.

4

Introduce pen commands, to use different colours.

Draw a house, with garage and the better children can also draw a tree.

5

Show the children how to draw another house but this time use the commands that make their pen thinker.

See if they can use everything they know so far to draw a house with at least two windows, Front door.

If they are really good they can add a chimney, tree and the sun in the sky.

6

Follow a pattern which uses repeat commands (Worksheet 2) but the children need to figure out how to change the colours every time so their shape is multi-coloured. Talk about the need to write algorithms in the correct order.

Follow another pattern then look at the code and change different aspects so a different pattern is drawn.

If finished draw another pattern but this time don’t use any scripts.

Computational Thinking – 2DIY Maze Game

Week

Plan – Make a maze game

1

Maze initial game needs to include – Main character/Maze/Bad guy/Something to collect/Background.

2

Add instructions and sound to last week’s game. Play game and write 3 points about how it could be improved, discuss results as a class. Start to make another game but think about points made.

3

Continue to make game, with instructions and sound, if finished make a new harder level for this game. Include more bad guys, different objects with more points, make maze more detailed,

5

Continue last week’s lesson adding new harder levels.

6

When finished link all games together to make one game with different levels. Play each other’s games. Display on board and ask for one positive point and one way it could be improved (If it can). Upload some onto website.
