Welcome to Class 1/2 C – Mr Crowther
Welcome to our Class page. Here you will find important information about our Class routines, curriculum and general information. We will also keep you updated about the amazing activities we have been getting up to at school. Please scroll down to keep up to date with our class blog.
Children will be taught to read through daily Read, Write, Inc. lessons, individual reading sessions and guided reading. Children will also bring home school reading books to practice reading at home. Please read regularly with your children at home and use their Reading Records to communicate with the class teacher.
Homework sent home on a Friday and returned by the following Wednesday. Children will complete a task from the Pick ‘n’ Mix menu. They can choose from a range of different activities based around English, maths and topic work. Homework should be returned with their homework book.
PE – children should bring their full PE kit every Monday and leave it in school throughout the week in case of any extra PE activities.
Please name all of your child’s kit. No jewellery – earrings must be removed either by the child or before they come into school.
Please make sure that your child has the correct PE Kit:
-Black shorts, white t-shirt and trainers
-No football or sports tops please!
-Tracksuit bottoms for outdoor lessons.
December 2016 – Creating Algorithms
Today we learned that an algorithm is a precise set of instructions. We talked about the different instructions we can give a Beebot. Our challenge was to make the Beebot travel across a map or in the shape of a given digit. Some were trickier than others. We used the directional arrows to write our algorithms. It didn’t work at first, so we had to work as a team and persevere to solve the problem. When we made a mistake, we changed our instructions to debug the algorithm.
December 2016 – Computer Science Week
This week the whole school have participated in the ‘Hour of Code’. This is a global event in which over 300 million people have taken part. The aim of this event is to give children the opportunity to develop their computer science skills through coding and problem solving activities. Class 1/2C had fun creating algorithms (or precise sets of instructions) for their characters to follow. Sometimes it was tricky, so they had to work together to fix any problems they encountered.
