Class 2

Welcome to Class 2! 


We are made up of Year 3 and 4, taught by Miss Wenmouth and supported by Mrs Mulcahy. 



Our Anglo-Saxon trip to Bridge Mill🐑🐔⚔


On the last day before half term, Class 2 visited Bridge Mill. We were immersed into what life for children would have been like during the Anglo-Saxon period. The children dressed up, fed the animals, had a go at grinding wheat into flour by hand, and began building their own houses out of woven sticks, mud and clay! We are so lucky to have such an amazing resource in our village. 


DT Day🍪


Class 2 had a super DT day during the last week before half term. We started the day by getting into teams and totalling up the cost of our basic biscuit recipes so far (including electricity and water). We then took a look at the available ingredients that we could add to make a biscuit appropriate for our chosen target audience. The children had a budget of £1.99 and had to stick to it! After that, the teams worked on their brand names, logos and packaging before pitching their biscuit to the rest of the class. After breaktime, it was time to bake our biscuits, which were then baked and ready to be tested after lunch. Everyone's biscuits were taste tested and reviewed, and the children thought about how they would change their recipe if they were to try again. It was such a fantastic learning experience and we all had so much fun. 


Outdoor Maths🧪📝


As the weather is finally warming up, we decided to take our maths learning outside! Year 3 got their hands on various measuring jugs and beakers to support their learning of capacity and volume, whilst Year 4 found shade in the outdoor learning hut and surrounding benches to explore decimals.





Wild Life Champions 🌳🐝🌷


Class 2 spent the morning digging, planting and making things for the local wildlife. They planted a variety of seeds in the polytunnel, dug and planted flowers, made fat balls for the birds to eat and created habitats for creatures and insects.




Bude Literary Festival 📚


Class 2 were absolutely thrilled to welcome the amazing Sophie Henn in as part of the Bude Literary Festival. Sophie talked the children through how she comes up with her ideas and the makings of her books. She then gave an absolutely amazing workshop on how to illustrate characters which the children loved! We didn't want the workshop to end and would highly recommend her to anyone who loves books as much as we do!

Our trip to Tintagel Castle 🏰☀


Class 2 have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons and Scots this half term, and we came across the legend of King Arthur. As King Arthur was allegedly born in Tintagel, we thought that it would be perfect to pay a visit and explore the castle's history. We had such a fantastic visit, accompanied by some lovely sunshine. 

African Drumming Workshop🎶


Each class took part in a fantastic drumming workshop ran by Mid Devon Music Ltd. 

DT 👩🏻‍🍳

Class 2 are learning how to follow and adapt a recipe for biscuits. So far, we have tasted existing biscuits, examined their packaging and followed a basic biscuit recipe! More to follow soon..

Music and Art Easter Workshop🐣🎶


At the end of Spring term, we welcomed the other three primary schools in our hub over to enjoy a music and art workshop. This was delivered by Mark Jones, who we often work with for singing assemblies, and his wife Becky - a talented artist. The children had a fantastic time learning how to polyprint and being immersed into singing with added hand percussion. 

Wildlife Champions🌷🐛

A selection of the children worked with the Devon Wildlife Trust to come up with projects that will support our school environment.


Taking perimeter outside!📏
