In Year 2 we have been learning about Florence Nightingale and the great things she did for soldiers during the Crimean War.
We used our ‘talk for writing’ skills to look at different pictures and discuss how they made us feel, think and then thought of questions we would like to ask about the picture.
Following on from this we then researched Florence specifically in the ICT suite and inputted our data onto a padlet. We are now able to confidently use this programme and understand the importance of making sure our work is secure and private.
After this, we used our research to plan a newspaper article that can be published.
Next, we used the programme Purple Mash to type up our newspaper article in our Computing lesson; practicing our touch typing techniques and becoming more familiar with the keypad an different functions of the programme. Finally we imported pictures from a secure folder to complete our newspaper article.
Take a look at our pictures to see the progress of our learning.
