 Our learning...
Computing - pictograms
Year 2 have done lots of learning about pictograms this term, including collating data and interpreting it! Today, some of us were able to create our own. You can try at home yourself using:
In class, we have been learning about our right to Stay Safe and Speak Out. We have been learning about this from the NSPCC, who are also going to be coming in to school to speak to us! 
We have explored the website, The Buddy Zone, and if children are interested, they are encouraged to explore further at home. The website can be found using this address:
Design and Technology 
As part of our D&T project, we have been investigating wheeled vehicles and how they work. We found out that wheels need to be round and a vehicle needs axles and axle holders in order to work successfully. We designed our vehicles and have now made them!
