Hello Y5! You have a ‘free’ day on Monday! Do enjoy your time at home…I hope your holiday has been great! I would like you to download a brilliant piece of free graphics software – of course with the help and permission of your parents [as always]. I have asked our IT Manager to install this software on the school’s network as well, as I’ve found it easier for Y5’s to adjust images with this software than what we have on our school network. Please don’t panic if you can’t download/install it.
The reason why I would like you to download it, is to have a go at home with it as well and you can do some ‘homework’ by using the software in our WW2 topic – or any other topic. Plus, this software is something you will definitely use throughout your school career – even Secondary school as well! Follow the instructions and it’s as easy as eating a corn flake! Just follow the steps.
Steps to download and install:
1. Go to this link and click on the download link. See the image – the red box, but don’t click on the image, you need to go to the link.
2. A ‘Zip‘ file will get downloaded and your Mum/Dad – or any adult help – will help you to install the software. Good luck! This week in our ICT Lesson we will be using Paint.net to adjust WW2 images. It’s great fun! Read more with the next image.
If you want to search for Paint.Net, you need to put the following in a search box: paint dot net – see the screenshot from Google and it will appear as the first link. This is not your normal ‘paint’ program from Microsoft – don’t get confused.
