Rise and shine Year 2! Hope you all had a restful weekend. I will be making some calls this week to see how you are getting on with your home learning. It would be nice to hear from you and I can answer any questions you may have. I still have books for some children to collect this Wednesday. Please send in your work via email to Joan.
I have received lots of fantastic home learning from Mohammed. Well done Mohammed for uploading all your work on PurpleMash by yourself. Apologies for not putting them up on our blog earlier. I am so impressed at your presentation and how motivated you are to do the learning at home. Your fractions work look great and you are very confident in finding halves, thirds and quarters of shapes, objects and numbers. I love your ideas about the tree, you have put a lot of thought into it. Also, great map of our school and where to find trees and plants. It's very clear and detailed. Keep up the good work Mohammed!

What would you say to them and why?
Today we are going to use loops to complete a task when giving instructions. Instead of writing the same code again and again we could just use a loop block to command how many times we want our game character do certain actions. Use the pink repeat block to give command you can choose how many times you want the bee to carry out an action by selecting a number where the ? is. E.g. repeat 2 times - move forward.
