Today’s feedback is on computing.

RE

Using the bible

21 Top Bible Verses about Light - Beautiful Scriptures

Although there are lots of people using the bible, they might have different reasons behind why they are using it.

Have a look at the people on this sheet . . .

bible people

For each person, write down how and why you think that the bible could help them and identify a bible story that could provide that help.

E.g.

The old person might use the bible to give them courage and strength as they come to the end of their life because the bible provides a picture of what happens when someone dies. A story that could provide help would be the story of the resurrection as it explains that death is not the end and that a place is available in heaven for those that believe.

Computing

Today in computing we are going to focus on our presentation skills.  You can use either powerpoint or google slides within google apps.

Firstly, look at the key skills document – which skills can you check off? Are there any you already use?

 After this I would like you to look at the example presentation on cats and think about what is good and bad about this presentation, considering colours, images, fonts and how many of the key skills are included.

Now I would like you to create your own presentation (PowerPoint or Google Slides). Using the fact file you made in last week’s computing lesson, you need to put together a presentation based on your chosen North East landmark, aiming to include all the key skills listed. Have a look at the example if you are unsure – there is also instructions for some of the key skills you may not be so familiar with.

Logon and see how many you can get right in . . . a minute, 3 minutes, after 5 games, 10 games ? Can you improve your average time ?

Or if you have a times tables clock, you could practice that aswell.
