Year 2 - Digital Learning Log

Autumn 2 - Pictograms

Lesson 2 - KQ: How can we count and compare objects?

Learners will begin to understand the importance of organising data effectively for counting and comparing. They will create their own tally charts to organise data, and represent the tally count as a total. Finally, they will answer questions comparing totals in tally charts using vocabulary such as ‘more than’ and ‘less than’.

Lesson 3 - KQ: What is a pictogram?

Learners will become familiar with the term ‘pictogram’. They will create pictograms manually and then progress to creating them using a computer. Learners will begin to understand the advantages of using computers rather than manual methods to create pictograms, and use this to answer simple questions.

Lesson 4 - KQ: How can you create a pictogram?

Learners will think about the importance of effective data collection and will consider the benefits of different data collection methods: why, for example, we would use a pictogram to display the data collected. They will collect data to create a tally chart and use this to make a pictogram on a computer. Learners will explain what their finished pictogram shows by writing a range of statements to describe this.

Lesson 5 - KQ: What is an attribute?

Learners will think about ways in which objects can be grouped by attribute. They will then tally objects using a common attribute and present the data in the form of a pictogram. Learners will answer questions based on their pictograms using mathematical vocabulary such as ‘more than’/’less than’ and ‘most’/’least’.

Lesson 1 - E-Safety - KQ: How can we share information online?

The children will be researching different ways that information can be presented online. They will create a PowerPoint/Google Slide slide on appropriate things to share online.

Lesson 6 - KQ: How can we present information?

Learners will understand that there are other ways to present data than using tally charts and pictograms. They will use a pre-made tally chart to create a block diagram on their device. Learners will then share their data with a partner and discuss their findings. They will consider whether it is always OK to share data and when it is not OK. They will know that it is alright to say no if someone asks for their data, and how to report their concerns.

Autumn 1 - Robot Algorithms

Lesson 1 - Key Question: Why are passwords important?

Children used Purple Mash to create a poster about E-Safety rules, particularly about staying safe online. Children will understand the importance of passwords, how to create strong passwords and why this is important. 

Lesson 2 - Key Question: When might we need to use instructions?

Learners will follow instructions given to them and give instructions to others. They will consider the language used to give instructions, and how that language needs to be clear and precise. Learners will combine several instructions into a sequence that can then be issued to another learner to complete. They will then consider a clear and precise set of instructions in relation to an algorithm, and will think about how computers can only follow clear and unambiguous instructions.

Lesson 3 Key Question: Why is it important to test our plans and ideas?

Learners will design, create, and test a mat for a floor robot. This will introduce the idea that design in programming not only includes code and algorithms, but also artefacts related to the project, such as artwork. Note: The designs in this lesson can be changed to suit a topic or theme that the class is learning about. The ideas included in the slides are examples.

Lesson 4 - Key Question: How can changing the order of instructions make the outcome different?

Learners will focus on sequences, and consider the importance of the order of instructions within a sequence. They will create sequences using the same instructions in different orders. They will then test these sequences to see how the different orders affect the outcome.Learners will focus on sequences, and consider the importance of the order of instructions within a sequence.
