This week in Year 2

Computing 

In Computing we have been using Scratch to create and debug simple programs. The children followed their plan, ‘I am Special’, to help create their own avatar, or to paint their own Sprite.

We carefully considered different backgrounds to represent their personalities, likes and dislikes.

Have a look at some of our work below!

Don’t forget, the children can have a practise at this at home by visiting https://scratch.mit.edu/

Then click on ‘Create’ at the top. Enjoy!

Have a lovely weekend,

The Year 2 Team

Summer Term Reading Passport

Hello, you will notice that the children were sent home with their new Summer Term Reading passports this week. We are excited by the books that the children will read and we have ensured that the options for books suggested are wide enough. Mrs Porter has updated her shelves in the library with lots of books that the children can choose from.

Once your child has completed the passport, please send it into school so that they can be added into the prize draw for a special treat!

Online Safety

This afternoon, we were visited in school by Lee Haywood who you may know as our local contact for online safety. He spoke with the children about being safe with the internet in the home. He spoke with the children about smart devices such as an Alexa and using Siri and how to use them safely.

He spoke to the children about the appropriateness of the games that they play and how we are reliant on the Internet. We discussed how to stay safe on games when there is an option for chatting or communicating through games and what a stranger is. Please do look at his website as it does advise about individual games that your children may ask to play and their suitability.

Happy Easter from Year 2

What a fabulous return to school we have had. We have so enjoyed the last 3 weeks since all the children have been back and our very proud of the writing we have produced about the passengers on board Titanic.

 

In Science this week we have been planting seeds in order to answer the question, do seeds always need soil to grow?

 

This week in Year 2!

We have been busy in Year 2 this week continuing to write our diary entries as if we were a passenger on board Titanic!

We used our story mapping skills to plan out our diary entry adding key vocabulary.

 

In Maths we have been solving problems using multiplication and division skills.

We developed our strategies for solving problems by using the Plan, Do, Review approach.

 

 

Welcome back Year 2

We have loved seeing you all back in school!

You have come in and settled so quickly and we are already deep into our new learning journeys.
We are learning all about Titanic and it’s maiden voyage. 

In maths we have been learning about multiplications and division and have been drawing models

 

and images to represent our learning.
