    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    In preparation for our sewing, year 2 got to grips with drawing templates onto fabric. We then had to cut carefully around these templates. We soon discovered that some fabrics are easier to cut than others. We will be recapping how to thread needles next week in order to start sewing our fabric flowers.

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Today we listened to several pieces of music by Gustav Holst. We had to identify simple differences in the pieces and then try to describe them using adjectives. We then experimented making our own music using Chrome Music Lab. We will be using this software this term to create our own pieces.

    Computing - Coding

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We were very lucky today. Some Year 12 students from Rednock School came to talk to us about computer science. We all got to use Scratch Jr to code a series of events using repeats and loops. It was great fun learning from students who are nearly finished with their secondary education.

    Computing - Grouping Data

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We began to look at how objects have many different labels that can be used to put them into groups. They named different objects and experimented with placing them into different groups. They also labelled a group of objects, and deduced that an object can fit into more than one group depending on the context.
