ICT Hi boys and girls!

I hope you enjoyed putting animations in your story book last week. This week we are going to add sounds to our work!

  1. Open your 2do and click on My story instead of My Simple Story
  2. Open up your saved work from last time. (Click the button with three lines in top left corner and then click open and you should find it there). 
  3. Remind yourselves of the story you created last time. Run the pages (using the big green arrow at the top of the page).
  4. We are now going to add sounds to make our stories even more interesting! To do this, click on the speaker button and experiment with the different sounds you find. Remember to click the drop down arrow to explore more sounds!
  5. Add a sound to your story.
  6. Have a go at recording your own sound. To do this open up the sounds again and click on record. This will allow you to record yourself. If you click on the piano you can have a go at creating your own tune on different instruments. Click the record button and when you are done playing your tune click the stop button. You can then play your tune back and decide if you would like to re-do or use that tune.
  7. Think about what your story is about. How can the chosen sound effects or tunes make it happy, sad or scary?
  8. For each page you can only add one sound. 
  9. Remember to save your work!

Year 2 children, please remember to complete the MyMaths and Spelling Shed activities set for you weekly. Some of you also have Lexia activities to complete each week. Well done for working so hard on these tasks last half term.

Creative Activities

Here are some further ideas for activities you can do at home which are fun and where you don't need to use an electronic device.


1.How are you getting on with your lockdown diary? Remember that if you write a diary at this time it will become part of history. You could start one now if you haven't already. You could write in it once a week if you are finding it hard to do every day. Why don't you include photographs, drawings and newspaper clippings?

2.Make an obstacle course in your garden for your family or your pets.

3.Play hopscotch with someone else in your family.

4. Build a den in your room or outside.

5.Have an alphabet hunt around your house. Start with A and see if you can find all the letters in order.

6.Collect junk from packaging you have used and turn it into an amazing model. You could work with your family to make a huge sculpture.

7. Create a fruit salad with your favourite fruit. 

8. Listen to your favourite music and make up a dance routine.

9.Draw a picture of your favourite plant or minibeast that you have found in your garden.

10. Finally visit Disneyland and go on the virtual rides. You do need an electronic device for this activity. Sorry!

Welcome to Year 1/2!
