🍁 Autumn Term 2017 🍂
Welcome back to school! This term our topic will be ‘From Land’s End to John O’Groats’, please take a moment to look over the curriculum poster. As part of this topic, we will be going on a virtual tour of the UK and will be tracking our journey on a map. We would love to include some places personal to the children on the class map, if you have somewhere in mind please make a note and pass it in to us so we can include it. Any photos to go with the location would be fantastic!
The new Year One class have already been dazzling us with their enthusiasm and hard work, just look at how smart and grown up they are!
🌞🌻Summer Term 2017🌼☀️
Welcome to the summer term! Our topic this term is On The Farm. Stay tuned for updates and further information.
Pennywell Farm Trip
On Tuesday 23rd May we had a wonderful day out at Pennywell Farm! We explored the farm and learnt even more about where food comes from. We even got to explore how the farm is organised. Some of our favourite things were riding on the tractors and playing with lots of the animals. Have a look at the pictures below which capture only a snippet of the fun and excitement!

📚 Happy World Book Day! 📚
We have spent the day wearing fabulous book character costumes and reading lots of different books! We have also been taking part in lots of activities all about our class book, The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch.
As part of our topic we have been studying the work of local artist Brian Pollard. Inspired by his work, we walked up to the Hoe to have a go at drawing Smeaton's Tower and Drake's Island.
We have been learning how to use a number line to subtract. We made some short films explaining how to do it!
Happy New Year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break. Once again the children have made an excellent start to the term and have been keen to get stuck in with their learning straight away. I am very impressed with their enthusiasm! We have a jam packed term ahead of us which I’m very much looking forward to.
This term our topic will be ‘Where We Live’, please take a moment to look over the curriculum poster. We would love to display a collection of maps or pictures of Plymouth in the past, if you have any at home that you’d be happy to lend us we would be very grateful. Similarly, if you or someone you know would like to come and talk to the children about how Plymouth has changed throughout the years that would be fantastic, please do let us know.

This week we have been learning about colour mixing. We used primary colours to create secondary colours and experimented with colour sums. Year 6 joined us for some colour mixing fun, we had a great time together!
Friday 14th October
This morning we had a fantastic time listening to Nick Sharratt at the Guildhall. He read some of his stories to us and showed us how to draw lots of different things. We particularly enjoyed his funny animals, and we had great fun creating our own animals back at school. What do you think?

This week we have been learning all about counting up to 100. Here are a couple of games we have been playing in the classroom. Why not try them at home?
