Taking Great Photos

This week we have been learning how to take awesome photos. We have looked at lots of different photos and discussed what makes us like them. We built our knowledge about different angles and compositions of photos, made meaning by comparing different photos and sorting them into groups. Finally, we applied our understanding by taking some AMAZING photos. Take a look and tell us what you think!

How to give good instructions: Blindfold Edition

Today as part of our learning how to give good instructions, the Year 2's got into pairs and blindfolded each other. Then they tried to walk from one end of the hub to the other, listening to their partners instructions. It was hard work and meant that their partner had to give clear instructions using words like turn, right, left, sidestep and STOP!
We got better and better as we practiced and now we know more about how to give good instructions.
