Trip to Buckfast Abbey - 16.03.20
Class 2 really enjoyed a trip to Buckfast Abbey to explore the Easter Story by going on a giant easter egg hunt. We had to wander around the abbey grounds to search for giant easter eggs, which each contained an Easter themed activity. The activities included writing what made us feel 'joyful' on palm leaves, working together in teams to solve a jigsaw puzzle and planting our own 'seeds of life'. We were also able to have a look around the insides of the abbey. We had to be very quiet because it was so peaceful and beautiful. Have a look at some of the pictures below to see what we got up to on this gloriously sunny day!
Science Week - w.b 09.03.20
We have had a fantastic week in Class 2 celebrating Science Week. On Monday, Dartmoor Zoo visited us to carry out a Habitats workshop, which linked really nicely with our Living things and their habitats science topic. We got to hold a couple of cold-blooded reptiles! Wilf's dad also came in to share his Antarctic stories with us. This was very interesting and we were able to ask him lots of questions. We finished the week off making seed bombs and newspaper plant pots in our Matthew, Mark, Luke and John groups.
World Book Day 2020
We had a great day in school today celebrating World Book Day. We were able to come to school in pyjamas (or book character outfits) and then shared 'bedtime stories' with the Class 4 children. Have a look at our book sharing fun below!
Beebot fun! 25.02.20
This week in our computing lesson we learnt all about algorithms and programming. We first learnt what both of these words mean, before splitting off into groups and rotating 3 activities. In the first activity we had to work in pairs to write our own algorithm for brushing our teeth. The second activity involved further team work where we had to guide our blindfolded partner to find the treasure using only beebot style instructions. Finally we were able to explore with the beebots, programming them to move to specific squares on the mat and debugging them if they went wrong! We had lots of fun as you can see!
Hot chocolate in WWL! - w.b 10.02.20
We really enjoyed our last WWL session. We played a compass points game where Miss Foster shouted out a direction (e.g North) and we had to run to that point on the field. We imagined our compass was pointing North towards the bottom of the field. We then tested our team work skills to instruct and guide our partner to move in one of the compass point directions. This was more difficult than we expected because we were blindfolded! We then really enjoyed our treat at the end. We had hot chocolate and marshmallows whilst Miss Foster read us a small part of Samuel Pepys' diary. Thank you to Rosa for kindly bringing this in for our topic display.
Geography, PE and maths in Class 2 (w.b 03.02.20)
We have had a very busy week again! As geographers, we worked in teams to locate the 4 countries and capital cities of the UK. We have also carried on exploring division and we’re becoming experts at this now. We finished off the week playing team games with Mr Tanner. Class 2 love PE!
Also, a special mention goes to Ruby in Year 2 who won the Landscove courtesy cup last week for the school value of responsibility. Well done Ruby!
Another busy week in Class 2 (w.b 27.01.20)
This week in class 2 we have been artists as well as hunters! We explored mark-making in Art, using pencils to create light and dark tones. As artists, we took inspiration from pictures of burnt buildings from the Great Fire of London to recreate patterns in our own work. We also had a lovely trip down to wild woodland learning. We then read Harry and his bucket full of dinosaurs before going on a hunt to fill his bucket back up! When exploring, we found lots of dinosaur eggs, toy dinosaurs and some suspicious footprints...
Mrs Drew has also displayed our kindness pledges on the board outside our classroom by the pegs so please take a look if you are passing!
Wellbeing/Kindness Week - w.b 20.01.20
We have really enjoyed celebrating kindness and wellbeing week in Class 2 this week. We have taken part in lots of activities to learn about our physical, social and emotional wellbeing. These include participating in three CAP UK workshops, writing our own kindness pledges, making our own habitats during WWL, book sharing with Class 1 and a mindfulness session too. Have a look at us in action below!
Numeracy - 13.01.20 - Making equal groups.
This week as mathematicians, we have started investigating multiplication. We began by making equal groups with cubes and counters. Some of us also wrote stem and number sentences to describe our groups.
Science - 10.01.20 - What habitats are there around the world?
In today’s Science lesson, the Year 1 children worked as a team to sort animal pictures into main world habitats. We also discussed why animals are suited to their habitats and can survive in its climate.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, eSchools) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Services, and we refer to these as “advertising” or “analytical” cookies. For example, the embedding of YouTube and Vimeo videos, as added by individual schools will require “advertising” cookies to be enabled in order to successfully play them. Schools that, for example, opt to track visitor data using Google Analytics will require “analytical” cookies to be enabled in order to do so. These third party cookies are used to tailor content and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalise your experience while interacting with our Services and to otherwise improve the functionality of the Services we provide. We also enable schools to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with their use of our Services in order to allow them to track visitors to and interactions with, their school website.
User Embedded Content
Our Services allows schools to embed code which may potentially contain cookies. Please note embedded content, if displayed on one our websites, has been added by the school and not by eSchools. The embedded content added by the school may require additional cookies or tracking technologies to be enabled in order to function.
How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. Be aware that cookie preferences are set on a per device basis; therefore you may need to set your preferences on each device you use.
