Using Scratch Junior in Computing

This term, year 2 have been using the program ‘Scratch Junior’ to give a character instructions to follow and learn about repetition on a program. They were able to give their character instructions, such as, which direction to turn in, which direction to move in and how to move…

They also were able to change the design of the setting of where their character was. We have also been learning about the importance of team work and lending a helping hand, even to your teacher, if anyone is stuck or is having trouble working something out.

The Infant Singing Festival Summer 2021

I was one proud teacher on Monday afternoon when we recorded out two song entries for the annual infant singing festival, hosted by Walsall Music Hub.

Year 2 children sung ‘This Is Me’ from The Greatest Showman and an original song written especially for the singing festival called ‘Lockdown Life’.

The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It is so lovely to hear them sing and perform!

Below are some photographs and a video clip from their performance. It has been sent off to Walsall Music Hub and then it will be put into a large movie, which will be aired on their YouTube channel on Thursday 1st July. More information about how to access this will be given out soon.
