Computing

This term we became detectives to help Mr Bulpitt solve the mystery of the missing cake.  He emailed us the details and we used our computing skills to help us sort through the clues.  When we had collected all the information we entered it onto a spreadsheet.  Then we looked at how to filter the information to identify the thief.

Look at the data. Can you remember how to use the filter button? How did it help us?

E-Saftey

We have used lots of different IT equipment this year including ipads and laptops that we can use to go online.  It is important to know how to stay safe when we are using the internet.  We read the story of Smartie the penguin and helped him make good decisions about what to do when things go wrong online.  Can you remember some of the things that Smartie had to think about?

Then we made our own posters to help people stay safe online.  Tell someone at home the important messages you included on your poster.

Printing

This week we have been learning how to make a print.

First we experimented with mark making. We used a blunt pencil to press into a polystyrene tile. We talked about which marks are easy to make and which are tricky.

Then we made a rubbing of the tile.

After that we looked at our sketches of natural objects and chose a section to represent on our printing tile. Using the techniques we had practised we recreated the pattern on the tile.

Then we printed the tile. We had to load the roller with ink by rolling it out in the tray. Then roll the ink evenly across the tile. Next we placed the tile on the paper and used a clean roller to press the tile onto the paper. Finally we lifted the tile off to reveal the print.

What was your favourite part of the printing process?

Next week we will be thinking about our time in Year 2. We have had a fantastic year full of learning, new experiences and wonderful memories.

Have a think about your time in Year 2. Can you draw a picture to show one of your favourite memories from this year.

Perhaps you could write a riddle and we could guess your favourite memory?

Class Assembly

Yesterday was our class assembly. Everyone did a great job!

Who do you think did well yesterday? Why?

We even had a special guest at the second assembly. A caterpillar dropped in to watch! We found it good home in the playground afterwards.

Museum Visit

Today we went to the Year 5 Roman Museum.  There was lots to see, do and learn.

Here are some of the things we enjoyed.

Kashaan – I enjoyed drawing with pastels because it was fun and my picture turned out well.  The experts in Year 5 helped me too.

George – The bit I liked was when I put the armour on because it felt heavy on my shoulders.

Isaac – I liked riding the horse because it was really fun.

Sam M –  I liked the ipad experience.  You get the ipad and you focus on the picture of the Roman and the picture pops up and looks real and moves.  Then you click on test your knowledge and drag the words to the items and the words will be in the Roman language.  I learnt that “M” in Roman language is 1,000.

Rina – I liked looking at the sandals because I got to see my sisters sandals that she made.

Latishya – I liked when we cut out clothes to put on the Roman picture.  We got to colour them in too.

Thank you Year 5. We had a great time!

Home Learning 4.7.19

This week we have been thinking about how we keep our bodies healthy.

We looked at diet and nutrition and designed a healthy snack. Our snacks were delicious! You could find or design a healthy recipe and bring it in to share with the class.

Image result for balanced diet

Next week we will be looking at growing and changing. Bring in a photo of yourself from when you were a baby. Then as a class we will try and guess who the baby photo belongs to.

We have also been learning about how exercise is important to keep healthy. As next week is sports day you might want to practise some skills. Can you balance? Can you pass a ball to a friend? How many start jumps can you do in 1 minute?

2K Sports Day information

Today we talked about our different sports day groups. We all wrote down the colour of our group in a letter to bring home so that we can look for a t-shirt to wear next week.

Make sure you give your letter to your adult.

If you don’t have a t-shirt in the right colour you can wear your PE t-shirt and we will make colour labels to wear.
