Wonderful Woodland Topic web Summer 1

In computing Year 1 have been learning about coding. We know that for the computer to make something happen, it needs to follow clear instructions. We have used the 2Code program to create a simple program.

Reception have enjoyed using Maths City (part of Mini Mash and Purple Mash) to count with numbers from one to 20.

We enjoyed being outside doing bark and leaf rubbings.

Spring 2

Some of our learning this term …

We have been learning about the properties of everyday materials, including water. 

We have explored what happens to water as it goes from solid to liquid and back again.

We also explored evaporation when we observed and measured puddles on the playground.

We are always busy learning. 😀

Spring 1

Some of our remote learning this term …

Our Reception have been learning about looking after our oceans.

The children have made some super ‘Save our Seas’ posters and have been thinking about swaps that we can make to reduce the amount of single use plastic that our families use.

Year 1 have been using Purple Mash to learn about algorithms.

An ‘algorithm’ is a precise, step-by-step set of instructions used to solve a problem or achieve an objective. First, we followed the instruction to add colour to the elephant outline. When we shared our pictures we noticed that they were all very different. We then followed an algorithm on how to add colour to a picture of a bird. We noticed that they were much more alike.
