Hi Class 2!
Keep an eye on this page for weekly tasks! :)
You'll have to select the documents below to see your activities for the week.
See you soon,
Happy Easter Holidays!
Hi Class 2
Well done for making it through the first week - I sure am missing you all! You are all doing well with Times Tables Rockstars - well done! I can see that a couple of you have had a go at challenging each other so make sure you log in to accept your friend's challenge! I love checking in each day to see your scores increasing day by day.
How did last week's home learning go? I hope you also made time to enjoy the lovely weather we've had. I certainly did by cutting the grass, planting some flowers and digging out some weeds! I want to now grow some fruit and vegetables. What fruit and vegetables do you think I should grow?
Enjoy the Easter holidays! I've attached some holiday activities if you want to give them a go! Why don't you send me an email this week to update me on what you've been doing? If you email firstname.lastname@example.org, Mrs Bruce will forward your email to me and we can become email 'pen pals'!

A letter to Class 2:
Boys and girls don't be scared,
From the stories you may have heard.
I'm just writing because I want to say,
I'm thinking of you all each day.
I know you're all looked after in your homes,
Just remember you're not alone.
Please use this time carefully,
Have fun and learn creatively.
Don't read now because you'll have a test,
Instead let books take you on a quest.
Use the time for a new skill,
Let new learning be a thrill.
Don't idle the hours with wasteful things,
Enjoy the fun new learning brings.
And hopefully it won't be long,
Until we're all back where we belong!
Love, Miss Vosper xxx
Summer Term 2019
Our topic this term is 'Terrific Trees'. We will be using our local and wider environment to ensure that the children have the best learning opportunities and are fully engaged in this lovely topic. Please click on the link below to see our topic web.
As part of our 'Invasion' topic, we have been studying the Romans.
We had lots of fun finding out how the Romans invented roads, learning that they were mainly invented so that they could move their soldiers very quickly! After this, we researched the materials used to create them and made our own versions out of food!
We have also created our own Roman shields! We were able to design our own shield styles and then create them using a range of materials. Afterwards, we formed our legion to march and chant around the school as if we were real Roman soldiers!
This term we have been learning how to write our own traditional tales. We have been looking very closely at Lazy Jack to understand the structure and story language of a traditional tale. We worked hard to do this through many activities, such as creating our story maps and actions, along with monologues from the perspective of Lazy Jack. From all of this, we were then able to write our own fantastic traditional tales. Miss Vosper was very impressed with our story writing!
Class 2 have been enjoying their weekly forest school sessions and have been engaged in a variety of activities including:
Class 2's woodland survival trip certainly inspired some fantastic writing back in class! The children learned how to make fires, shelters and how to forage for food in the forest.
Plymouth Synagogue Trip
We joined our friends from Cornwood Primary to visit Plymouth Synagogue and Museum. We also walked to the Hoe to see the wonderful Poppy Display at the War Memorial.
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!
As 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.
