Where's Mr Harrison? - One Day More

Hi everyone. Here is a project that I have been involved in. Many of my musician friends are playing in it, but most of these people I have never met before. Everyone is from Cornwall though. We all recorded our parts separately and then they were put together by a team of 4 people. It took them ages. I think the result is pretty good though. What do you think? This song is from the musical Les Miserables. Can you spot me? (I'm not playing the piano, I'm playing one of my other instruments).
Mr Harrison

Maths - We are using WHITE ROSE (which we do in school) however, they have provided some great resources for Home Learning, with a video, worksheet and answer sheets to help aid the children and support the parents as much as possible.

 

English - On the map there is a daily English lesson based on the Great Kapox Tree story - this is your time to be as creative as possible and by the end of the week we should have your own version of a RAINFOREST  story.

A gripping story that the children are reading as a class.

Lots of Harry Potter based learning

Medium Term Planning and Homework Grid

Welcome back to school, the children have had a busy start to 2018. Firstly, receiving the post and invitation to enter Hogwarts School of Witch Craft and Wizardry to them having a stunning start, where they were sorted into houses. They had the opportunity to make their own quills, use magic to blow up balloons, make butter beer of there very own and to design their own logo. 

Our Literacy Wall

Some amazing homework is been handed in

Welcome back to the new year! Our new topic this term is 'Rainforest' and we are getting stuck into learning. The children have been given their homework sheets... enjoy!! I don't want homework to be a battle - the main priorities are reading, times tables and spellings. Thank you! 

Please find attached the medium term planning, homework grid and story Class 2 are learning this term! Keep your eyes peeled for children's work and videos.

We are starting Wildtribe again every Tuesday morning!!

Please can children bring old warm clothes and wellies. 

Some of the clay sea creature models that they have made.

SCIENCE WEEK 

We kicked off Science week with a day of investigations. Children choose a question they wanted to investigate and set up an experiment around evaporation! 

Great group work, predictions, measuring and fun was had!! 

 

We then had our AMAZING trip to  Plymouth Aquarium - where all the children took part in workshops and had a look around tthe aquarium!! The workshops included making a sub-marine out of different materials, using the morse code to work out codes and to use a claw to pick out different elements, a guided tour of the aquarium and mapping the sea. We had a fun- filled and enjoyable day. What was your favourite part? 

Some of the amazing creatures we saw! What was your favourite?

Children working out how to do their investigations

Some of the children's examples of their persausive posters!

Ocean Pollution - Save Our Marine Life

Every year, millions of marine mammals die, because of what we put into the oceans. When you pick up a piece of plastic off the beach, you could be saving a whale. Why not save a life every time? We have used this powerful video to help make persuasive posters to stop littering our oceans

In Science we have been looking at 'Changing States'. Can you tell the difference between a liquid, solid and gas? What have we been investigating?

Our classroom is filled with the children's work!

We have had some amazing homework in from class2 - THERE IS STILL TIME as we are continuing the Oceanopolis theme next half term

OUR NEW TOPIC IS OCEANOPOLIS - We are going to learn about oceans around the world and who/ and what lives there. 

 

 

This is some of the writing produced during SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) sessions at the end of the terms unit of work for some of our children. 

They have been working on using the following techniques:

  • Fronted adverbials
  • Brackets to add extra detail to the subject within a sentence
  • Semi colons, dashes and commas to separate clauses
  • Causal connectives
  • Adventurous Vocabulary

Their end of term assessment piece was to write a description setting imagining they were in the scene in the picture. They had to use as many of the taught techniques as they could. Here are two examples, how do you think they did? Can you spot the techniques in their writing?

 

'The trees branches were bony like fingers, the mottled bark was peeling off along the complete length of its trunk. Like a frantic force of nature, the wind was howling in the moonlight as shards of lightning struck the stone cold floor. Tall and imposing, the house stood with broken windows  revealing it to be abandoned. All of the many planks of wood (providing the buildings structure), were damaged in some kind of way. Due to the fact that it was a graveyard, the ancient, abandoned tower had the appropriately grotty and old clock; I believed it would never keep time again. Surrounding the building, every tree was bare, with moody, anxious crows squaking at me. There were many floors and concrete steps. The old, oak door now stood only a few steps away from me. No turning back now, I moved towards it - my heart racing...' Year 6

 

'Here I was standing by an old and withered tree; naked - meaning no leaves at all. All I could see was grey; grey grass, grey leaves, grey trees. I raised my eyes up. In front of me I saw a grey, bashed, haunted and creepy house - it was almost swaying as the wind blew. With my heart rate getting faster and faster, I looked towards the graves that were there. They appeared crushed, broken, dirty...... alive? I hated this place!' Year 4 

 

 

 

Our topic this term is World War 2- 

 

Do you know who these famous people are? 

 

 

 

 

 

This is what we are covering this term!

In Science we are looking at Light and Dark! Children carried out their own experiments.

Good team work and communication is very important in our class. How did your structure get on?

What types of extreme weather can you think of for our new topic?

Class 2 - Extreme Weather Topic - September 2015

The Perfect Pupil!

We will be spending a lot of time thinking about how we can be the 'perfect pupil' as part of our work on self motivation and self respect. We will think about what learning behaviours we need to demonstrate to show we are the best learner we can be. We will be making sculptures of the 'perfect pupil' for the entrance hall and will be writing about the qualities they have.

What would you put in as ingredients for the perfect pupil and the perfect learner?
