Welcome to the Huntingtree Computing & E-Safety Page!
Everyday, our lives are touched by technology. From the alarm clock on a mobile phone, through to the apps and games on a tablet. In our modern world, when used in a safe and responsible way, technology can be celebrated for the amazing contribution it has made to our lives.
Each term, we will celebrate significant digital leaders who have helped to transform our lives through technology.
In the Autumn term,we celebrated Sir Tim Berners - Lee who is known as the inventor of the World Wide Web and he created a new computer language called HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) which most web pages are written in.
If you want to find out more about Tim Berners-Lee then check out the interview below.
As part of celebrating digital achievement, Mr Smith organised a competition for children to design a poster about a 'Significant Digital Leader' which had to be presented using J2e. There were lots of brilliant entries and choosing a winner was a tough decision. However, the winners of an Amazon voucher and having their work published online are Tye and Isabella. Isla and Matilda were considered to be runners up and their great work will also be published online.
In Spring 1, we will celebrate Tye's choice of Bill gates. Check out Tye's brilliant winning entry in the link below.

F Friend requests should only be accepted from people you know.
E Everyone's personal information is private. Don't share yours online.
At home or school, follow the H U N T S A F E rules to stay safe online.
If you are having issues online with Cyber Bullying or Internet Trolls, capturing the information will help school (or in criminal cases) the police in bringing the matter to a conclusion.
Here are a few easy steps you can take in order to generate a 'screen shot'.
1. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake (on/off) button on the top of your iPad.
2. Quickly click the Home button at the bottom of the screen.
3. You can then find the screenshot in the photos section.
1. Have your page open to whatever it is that you wish to take a 'screen-shot' of, making sure that everything you want to record is visible.
2. Press the 'print screen' button on your keyboard (which may be alternately labelled 'PrtScn/SysRq').
3. Minimise your internet browser window, so that you can see your desktop and open the basic windows paint program or right click any photo on your desktop that you no longer need and select 'open with paint'.
4. To the top left of the open paint window, there should be a little clip board-type of icon that says 'paste'...open that and select 'past'.
5. If the icon isn't there at all on your version of paint, try simply right clicking on the blank palette and selecting 'paste'. Either should work just fine.
