Year 7 enhance digital knowledge at Computer Skills Day

Young pupils at Rydal Penrhos further embraced the digital age thanks to an ongoing learning scheme.

The school held a Year 7 Computer Skills Day on Monday, February 26, which is the latest in a long line of academic initiatives put on by staff in a bid to enhance the learning of each pupil.

Under the expert guidance of teacher and ICT guru Mike Farnell, the group began by working with Office 365, which is implemented throughout Rydal Penrhos and explored creating an account, accessing email via the web, the use of its One Drive system and file structure.

They also found out more about the use of Yammer, and how to change personal profile information on their accounts.

This was followed by a session on coding using the legendary online game Minecraft, before filling out a web form to give their feedback on their initial experiences at the Senior School.

The day concluded by looking at formatting various documents and using techniques such as wrapping, different use of styles and making your document look more presentable via headers and footers.

Mr Farnell, said: “They have all looked really comfortable with all the tasks that they have been given, and been full receptive of the ever-changing world that is modern technology.

“It is important that they are kept fully up-to-date with everything related to Information Computer Technology in an increasingly digital age, and that is something we always strive to do here at Rydal Penrhos.”
