Home Learning 12.9.19

This week and next week all the children in 2T, 2S and 2B have been bringing in their favourite toys from home. So far we have really enjoyed hearing all about why these toys are your favourites and how you play with them.

For your home learning this week we would like you to ask your parents or grandparents to tell you all about what their favourite toys were when they were little. Perhaps your adult still has the toy to show you and you could draw a picture of it.

Investigating toys.

As our topic is toys and games this half term we have been investigating how different toys move.

We looked at and played with lots of different toys to decide if we had to push them or pull them.

We then worked with our partner to sort the toys into a Venn diagram.

Are there any other toys you think we could add to our Venn Diagram?

When using the wind up toys did you push them, pull them or do something different?

2S – Bee bots!

Today Miss Spicer cast a magic spell and turned us all into bee bots!! We couldn’t move without being programmed by our partner.

This term we will become computer programmers, we will be exploring using the bee bots further and learn to program roamers too.

We had a look at bee bots and roamers to compare the similarities and differences.

We refreshed our memories of how to use the bee bots, using the bee bots and our partner bee bots.

Finally we were ready to take on the bee bot challenge! We had to give our partner bot a set of instructions to get them around the different challenge courses.

2S Class Agreement

We have had a great start to the new school year in 2S! We are excited about our new classroom and topic.

To ensure that we make the most of all learning opportunities in Year 2 we have been talking about how we can create a safe, happy and engaging classroom environment for us all to be successful learner in.

After these discussions we created and signed our classroom contract, see below.

Can you share the classroom contract with someone at home? How will this contract help you to learn lots and enjoy being in the classroom at school?
