Suffixes and Scratch

In Year 2's literacy lesson, we have been looking at ways to extend our adjectives. One way we have done this is to focus on the suffix -est and -er. We looked at different root words based around our topic 'The Great Fire of London' and used these root words to make new ones by adding a suffix.

First we investigated what words we could make. Then we drew a fire and surrounded our fire with our new adjectives.

In the afternoon, we focused on computing. In computing we have been learning about algorithms. In order to practice making algorithms, we used a program called Scratch. We choose a character, inputted backgrounds and made out characters move and talk by using a set of instructions to tell them what to do!
