Week Beginning 08.06.20

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

We wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your cooperation during this difficult time. It has been fantastic to receive weekly updates from you regarding your child's progress with their home learning tasks. We are so proud of all that they have achieved. It is evident that everyone is working incredibly hard and trying their best. 

 

However, we regret to inform you that we will no longer be able to reply to all of your messages as we will be in school teaching full-time. From Monday 8th June, we ask that you communicate directly with Mrs Grimwood (Year 2 Teacher). Mrs Grimwood's email address is: 2GK@littlebowden.leics.sch.uk 

 

Please communicate with Mrs Grimwood weekly and update her on your child's progress. Please continue to include any photographs that you wish to be shared on our school website too. Mrs Grimwood will be available to answer any of your questions or concerns. 

 

Thank you again for your continued support.

 

Best wishes,

 

Mrs Wright and Mr Clarke

Maths - Position and Direction

Use the following pathway;

Espresso à Key Stage One à Maths à Geometry à Activities à Directions à Select the option on the far right-hand side.

Key Vocabulary; forwards, backwards, up, down, left, right, above, below, clockwise, anticlockwise, quarter turn, half turn, three-quarter turn, full turn, rotation.

 

Additional - ICT (Computing)

  • In our Computing lessons this term we would be programming our ‘Bee-Bots’ to support our Maths work on Position and Direction. These are small bee toys which can be programmed with coding instructions. However, you can download the Bee-Bot app on an iPhone here: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/bee-bot/id500131639
  • If you are using a computer, there is a similar Bee-Bot programming game available at: https://www.terrapinlogo.com/emu/beebot.html
  • See if your child can try programming the Bee-Bot using different directional instructions by pressing the arrows and then ‘Go’. Challenge your child to get to different areas on the screen. Think about how you will have to rotate the Bee-Bot to get them to the place you want them to go to.
