They then chose a really good place to build a house for the bears and worked together to make a new home for them to live in.

 
         
 

We had a visit by children from Walter Daw Primary School in Exeter.  After a performance from our rock band, the children got to know each other.  Our Year 6 gave them a tour of school, followed by orienteering around our school grounds.  Mrs Powley told our guests some interesting stories about the history of our school that they won’t forget!

 
         
 
Some children in Year 3 started baking. The smell of cheese straws in KS2 was wonderful!

Year 2 are learning all about ‘Ourselves’. 

 

We have been looking in mirrors and drawing self-portraits using pencil crayons and pastels. We have completed our self-portraits and have put them up on display in the Key Stage 1 corridor.

Here are a few examples.

You’ll need to visit Key Stage 1 to see the rest!

We have continued our learning about ‘Ourselves’.  We looked at homes in the UK and homes in other countries around the world and have been thinking about similarities and differences. 

We looked at videos from the BBC series Little Human Planet, which all the children have enjoyed.  If you want to look at some more at home, you can find the series at

www.bbc.co.uk/learningzone/clips/

- search for 'Little Human Planet'.

 
 

Here are some of Year 2 building a
