Today in Year 2, the children have been talking about bullying and cyberbullying. The children discussed different scenarios of cyberbullying and what they would need to do. They were all very sensible and knew to tell a trusted adult or report to the social network.
The children worked in small groups to complete a Venn diagram to show where different forms of bullying would be placed. They could choose bullying, cyberbullying or in the middle for both. They realised that some forms of bullying can happen in real life and over the Internet.
Today in English, Year 2 Toucans had a go at role playing some characters from the ‘Scaredy Squirrel’ books we have been reading. We then used this to make our own storyboard of a conversation using speech bubbles.
Today we talked about what plants need to be able to grow. We decided seeds, water, light and soil would all help a plant to grow well. We then planted some sunflower seeds which should started growing over the next few weeks if we are correct.
During Computing this afternoon, Year 2 Toucans further enhanced their knowledge on algorithms and debugging. The children used an app called Fix the Factory (a free download from the App store).
Mr Baddhan asked the children to work through the levels using their problem solving skills to move the robot from a start position to the end – the controls available include ‘move forward’, ‘turn right’, ‘turn left’, ‘pick up’ and ‘drop off’.
Alot of perseverance and debugging was requred to fix their mistakes in the code.
