ICT Bulletin #9

Monday 4th November 2013

This week...


This week Years 3 and 6 will be starting their ICT units in their classrooms. Should you want to use their ICT HUB time please book a slot via Outlook.

Monday 11:20-12:20

Tuesday 09:50-12:20

Thursday 11:20-12:20

Recurring room bookings

Could I ask that we are mindful of other classes and year groups when we book rooms on a recurring basis. Feel free to book and use these spaces when they are available but please be aware that by booking them for your class on a weekly basis you are restricting others who may wish to use that space too.


It's business as usual this week as the new ICT units start. Years 1, 3 and 6 have already received their planning and the other classes will receive them shortly. Remember that the teachers notes for all SOICT units are on the PDrive so you'll at least be able to get a unit overview while you wait!

Wednesday 7th November

The LTMs will be starting Wednesday Workshops this week with Year 1. We're starting at JSL, moving onto JSD next week and finishing at JSV. Expect some news on this at the end of the month.

D2VF - Change of ICT slot

I've agreed with Vicky that we'll move D2VF's ICT slot from Friday afternoon to Wednesday afternoon. Having ICT last thing on a Friday was proving rather difficult for the children therefore the HUB will now be bookable last thing on a Friday afternoon. Please book this via Outlook. The specialist timetable has been updated on the PDrive.

Have a great week!

Watch the short video below for some handy tech tips. I picked up one or two tips myself. The presenter is slightly annoying but if you can put that aside you could learn a trick or two.
