Computing from the Spring Term 2021

This term, the children across the Infant School have really had to extend their computing skills as it has enabled them to be able to take part in their remote learning. The children have had to learn how to use Microsoft Teams, how to put their ‘teams hand up’ and how to mute and unmute themselves to answer questions as well as navigating through different teams that they are on for assemblies and interventions. We are so proud with how all of the children have coped and good they have been at adapting to online learning.

Both year 1 and year 2 have been completing their spelling using Purple Mash as well as using Oxford Owl and the Active Learn Bug club to help with their reading.

The children in year 2 have used Purple Mash to explore algorithms this term. They have created their own algorithms using 2code and have been able to debug any errors that occur. 

They also linked their computing work to their English story of ‘The Storm Whale’. They retold the story using 2create a story and added in pictures to improve their mouse skills and some children even added in animations and voice clips.
