Year 2 – Coding

Year 2 children continued their coding In computer science today as they worked through a variety of coding problems on a 2-D grid; moving characters by using movement keys that include north, south, east and west. Children also used functions such as repeat so as to make longer coding easier. We also looked at how to access independently access hints and tips to help solve a coding problem.

Year 2: Geometry

Geometry Year 2 children have been working hard in numeracy and have been learning all about geometry. The focus for this lesson was for children to use their knowledge of the properties of 2-D shapes (sides/vertices-corners) and then create a selection of 2-D shapes on a digital geo-board. Children focused their efforts on creating a… Continue Reading

Heaton Space Project

Heaton Space Project

Some children from Year 5 and Year 6 took part in a project about their local area with Sean Peacock who is studying for a PhD at Newcastle University. After an initial briefing, they walked around the local area of Heaton and recorded the amount of pollution using specialist technology. The following day, they discussed their findings… Continue Reading
