1SPThis week the have been learning how to sort using a given criteria. The children started by looking at a range of 2D shapes and they discussed the different ways these shapes could be sorted. The children then chose two of their own categories to sort their own set of shapes into (for example- shapes that are red and shapes with only straight edges). Once the children had sorted their shapes they were given a 2do to complete on the laptops where the skills of sorting was embedded.
This week in computing the children have been learning how to use the ‘topics’ section on Purple Mash. First, the children learnt how to use ‘2count’ when creating their own pictograms and once they had completed these they then learnt how to save and send their work to the printer. After that, the children looked at the ‘2explore’ where they explored different musical instruments and sounds. The children learnt how to record the sounds they had made and they enjoyed listening back to what they had created.
This week in ICT we have been exploring the topic pages on Purple mash. We learnt how to navigate to the page. We explored using the tools and adding text to the projects. Well done year 1!

The children learnt how to add text and images to their projects and they each had a turn at starting a different piece of work under each topic which we they are going to finish off in class or at home.
