What is the internet?

Following our quick on the draw session last week when we learned all about how Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the world wide web, year 6 have been looking at the different parts of the internet.

We discovered that there are at least four elements of the internet:

– www
– email
– file transfer
– telephony (eg Skype / Facetime)

Can you remember the acronyms associated with each element and can you sum up these in one sentence?

Next week we will be distinguishing different parts of the internet using Explain Everything.
