Our Learning Journey

We're back!  After weeks of home learning, the children have settled very well back in the school routine. Here is what we have been up to so far.

During RE day, we studied the Easter Story in preparation for holy week.

In geography, we have been locating where we live in the world, using words such as Northern Hemisphere, Equator, Europe, United Kingdom of Great Britain, England and Devon.

In computing, we have applied our knowledge and understanding of pictograms using computer programs to represent the data we collected.

In maths, we have been building 3D shapes to reinforce our understanding of key vocabulary such as 'edges' and 'vertices'.

On our first day back, we continued our artwork on dragons' eyes. Keep an eye out for our class display.

PSHE - Today we discussed the concept of 'fairness' using our Oracy skills to express ourselves clearly.

This week, in maths, we have carried on learning about 2D shapes and investigated the concept of vertical lines of symmetry.

Science week: this afternoon we learned about the work of the ornithologist and activist Mya-Rose Craig, otherwise known as Bird Girl. We then sketched a wide variety of birds and discussed their features.

Science week: as a follow-up lesson to our study of Mya-Rose Craig's work, we explored the impact of deforestation on the habitats of wildlife.

Science week: thank you Year 2 for your fantastic presentations today. What great scientists you all are!

What a great start to the second part of the term! Everyone has come back from their half-term break rested and eager to learn.  Have a look at what we have been up to so far.

What a great afternoon watching the Pantomime! Oh no it wasn't. Oh yes it was...

Maths in context: today we used place value counters to investigate related facts.

Welcome back, everyone. 

We have been very busy for the past few weeks!  Well done for settling so well into your new school routine.  This term, we have been focusing on learning to be together again, taking turns, sharing and valuing each other's views and ideas.  

Today we met our French partner class from Keriscoualc'h Primary School in Brittany.

We could not go to the National Aquarium this term, so the NMA came to us for an online workshop on adaptation and evolution.

We are learning about how penguins adapt to the harsh living conditions of Antarctica and made models of penguins.

PE - Today was our first lesson with Dan from Plymouth Argyle.
