Your naughty toy has been found! The newspapers want you to create a newspaper report for them to publish explaining what has happened.  Think again about the following questions:

What have they done?

When did they do it?

Why might they have done it?

Who else was involved?

Did anyone see them?

Get your plan out so that you can refer to it whilst writing. Today and tomorrow will be your time to write your report as the newspaper wants it in to be edited.

Make your own template or use the one here to create your newspaper report. Don’t rush you have plenty of time to write.

Can you include any of the following Year 2 skills:

  • Question
  • Exclamation (remember they start with how or what eg How terrible this news is!)
  • Commas in a list (Eg The egg thief had fluffy fur, evil eyes, floppy ears and a pink basket.)

Topic- ICT

Show children a pattern (can use objects around the house or the supporting document called ICT patterns worksheet). What will come next in the pattern?

Explain that a pattern is a sequence of things that are arranged following a rule – if we can predict what comes next, it’s a pattern.

Make patterns:

  • draw them
  • colour them
  • paint them
  • use beads, cutlery, toys, clothes…

Can you explain the pattern you have made?

Now we are going to create an algorithm for your pattern so that someone else can recreate your pattern. An algorithm is a precise sequence of instructions, or set of rules, for performing a task.

Use the words first, then and repeat to create your instructions. Test them out on another person. Did your algorithm work?

This activity can repeated again and again using different patterns that the children have created.
