Computing home learning:
Hi Year 2! This week, I want you to start something called computational thinking, which means thinking like a computer and creating instructions to follow. This week, you will need your favourite son! You are going to think of 5 dance moves that you can do. Write them each on a sticky note, then arrange them into an order to create a dance routine, like we did with beard man on 'Busy Things'. Then play the song and perform your dance moves in order to the song. Get your family involved too and create a group dance routine! The set of instructions you have made is called an algorithm. Have fun!

Religious Education (R.E.) home learning:
Hello Year 2! This term in RE, we are looking at celebrations or Religious Festivals. Talk to someone else in your home... Ho many different celebrations do you have in your house?
Different religions celebrate 'special people' but you are special too! We celebrate YOU on your birthday. Your task is to be a PARTY PLANNER; When is your birthday? Who would you invite? Do you have a theme? What would you eat? What would your cake look like?Where would your party be? Would you play any games? Draw pictures and write lists to plan your dream party!

Music home learning:
Hi Year 2! Experiment in the Google Rhythm Lab and have a go at creating your own drum patterns! Make sure to try all of the different drum kits by scrolling along to the right. Can you see how many beats there are in each bar?
