Welcome to the Huntingtree Computing & E-Safety Page!
Celebrating Computing Achievement
Children at Huntingtree Primary school learn 'specific skills' that help them to complete a final outcome task at the end of each half term. We believe work that shows improvement, achieves the taught skills or shows flares of creativity deserves to be celebrated with both the children's family and the wider community.
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.
Throughtout history, significant digital leaders have helped to transform our lives through technology. For example: Sir Tim Berners - Lee, from the U.K, 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.
Children at Huntingtree produced some brilliant posters showcasing some of the greatest digital leaders across history.
Technology at home
Technology is a fantastic way to keep you entertained when you are stuck indoors and helps you to keep in touch with friends. However, it is important to look after your health and wellbeing too.
3 Top Tips:
1. Use technology to help you with your home learning or research learning you are doing at school
2. Try to limit how long you spend on your phone or other devices. ‘Down time' such as drawing, reading or physical exercise can also help to break up your day
3. If you find content online that makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, then tell a grown up, a trusted adult (Eve Thrupp - School Nurse) or write a message to a teacher (see the ‘contact us’ link below)
Eve Thrupp is the school nurse at Huntingtree Primary School. She will be posting some videos, based on different health and wellbeing topics, to help support you while you are away from school.

H U N T S A F E Rules
In school, you learn the H U N T S A F E rules to stay safe online (check out the display in the Computer Suite).
H How you treat others, should be the same as how you would want to be treated.
U Understand that the Internet is an amazing place when used in a safe way.
N Never meet up with someone you have never met before in real life.
T The messages you send should be friendly and use kind words.
S Shut the laptop lid or turn off the monitor if you see something you don't like online, then tell an adult immediately.
A Avatars are better to use online than personal photographs of you.
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.
