Shaugh Prior Primary School

Class 2

Autumn 2017 

Our topic for this term is 'Ancient Egypt'.  Please click on the link below for an overview of how we will link each subject to this fascinating topic!

 

Food is Fun! 

Class 2 took part in ‘Food is Fun’ workshops run by Devon Scorse, who work in partnership with Devon Norse our school meals provider. From a selection of foods, the children chose meals suitable for breakfast, lunch and dinner, before sorting each item on to the ‘Eat Well Plate’.

They also tasted a variety of foods, including some they had never tried before, such as samphire and radishes. Afterwards, Alex said he would definitely start eating breakfast as he had learned that it would make him even cleverer!

We learned about the importance of trying new foods and how each food helps us to grow and stay healthy. We learned the names of new foods, including herbs and spices such as basil and ginger.

You can tell by our faces, that we liked some things more than others! But at least we tried before we said ‘we don’t like it’!

It was lovely to have our ‘rising Y3’s, Freya, Maya and Queenie, with us too! The ladies from Scorse were very impressed with all of them and said that they had been ‘excellent role models’. Well done, girls!

 

Class 2 have been involved in two very exciting projects this term - 'Gardening' and 'From Farm to Plate' - and during the first half of the term we learned all about the functions of the parts of plants, pollination, germination and seed dispersal.  In the second half of this term, we have been putting our knowledge and skills to the test in our outdoor environment.   Here are some photos to show you just how busy we've been!

Our London Trip

In the Autumn Term 2016, our topic was 'London'.  We were lucky enough to be able to visit our capital city with one of our federated schools, Cornwood C of E Primary.   It was a very early start and a late return home, but well worth it to see the Crown Jewels and Buckingham Palace first-hand.

We had lots of inspiration for our DT project 'London Street Lamps'!  Here are some of our working models:
