You might like to write a thank you to Miss Lovelace on 5L’s blog for the fun drawing session today. (Could you count that as a good deed?)

Do a ‘good deed’ challenge

Challenge: Do a good deed everyday for a week.

A good deed is defined as an act or performance done out of kindness, generosity or friendliness.

This could be at home, school or out and about.

You need to present your good deeds on your iPad on a school app of your choice. Please let us all know about your ‘good deeds’ and how you felt about them, by writing a comment on the blog.

Looking forward to see your presentations on the last day of term.


Grade 5 iPad Check Up

iPad Usage:

Each student is required to have 6GB of data space on their iPad so that they can complete school tasks. If you do not have 6GB then you need to delete some of your apps that ARE NOT school apps.

Follow the directions on how to check how much space you have left.

You need to go into your SETTINGS > General > Usage

In the Usage section on the top left hand side it will show you how many GB you have left. On the right it will tell you how much you have used.

A list of apps will come up. The app that is using the MOST space will appear at the top of the list.

If it is an app that you don’t use often – DELETE IT!

You need to REGULARLY back up your iPad to your computer at home, and your Grade Server.

To do this you need to plug in your iPad using the cord, to your computer. Open iTunes, and press ‘SYNC’

You should be saving work on the grade server without being told. This is a skill you should do automatically now. All work should be saved to your own folder.

If you have any questions, please write them as a comment.
