Well done 5B on your work so far on this website. We have some comments now from other teachers in the school and from someone who works for Geffrye museum (the virtual-garden design site). Can you find their comments on the site?

Today’s task 

Although Mohammed Nagi once told me…

“The internet knows everything sir!”

it is true to say…

“You shouldn’t believe everything you read.”

You have been finding incorrect information in databases for ICT recently and your task today is to research the following websites and decide which ones are telling the truth and which ones are telling lies.

Please write a comment detailing the websites you don’t believe in and explain your reasons.






I hope you find it.

Mr Bishop

Hello 5B and welcome back to your blog   :O)

I am really pleased that almost all of you have now managed to write on the internet using this blog, you should be very proud of what you have done so far.

Today we are going to do something slightly different.

You have been designing an ice lolly in DT and next week you are going to make them. However, before you make your ice lollies you need to promote them using a powerpoint presentation and the persuasive techniques you have been learning in literacy.

We will publish your powerpoint presentations on the website so that anyone can look at them. The instructions to do this are below:

1. Open PowerPoint and save a new file in this folder:

studentdata/2007-2008 folders/5b/ice lolly presentation

2. Open Microsoft Word and then open the file called “ice lolly pictures” in this folder:

studentdata/2007-2008 folders/5b/ice lolly presentation

3. Create a 3-page powerpoint presentation, using persuasive language and features, designed to persuade someone to buy your ice lolly. You can use the pictures from the Word document in your work.

4. Remember to save your work when you have finished.

5. Enjoy your work!

 Good luck

Mr Bishop
