Bridge building

We are looking at structures in our DT work. We made bridges using different construction sets and then explored how to make paper stronger by folding.

Chinese New Year

Mrs Jordan shared her experience of Chinese New Year with us. She showed us her Chinese dining set and we smelt hoisin, soy and oyster sauce. We helped Mrs Jordan to make stir-fry, it was delicious!

Boxing Coaching

Today we were visited by some boxing coaches from the Tavistock Boxing Club. We learnt how to stand, guard and move.

 

Nativity

We loved telling the story of the Nativity. Year 2 wrote the script themselves!

 

Living plants

We used vegetables to create plants. We chose different vegetables to represent each part of a plant.

Bread Making

We made bread rolls and then wrote the instructions to show how we had made them.

Conker Day

Farm Visit

We went to Fowlescombe Farm. We fed sheep and chickens, collected apples and eggs, planted seeds, made fences and looked at the machines.

Owl Talk

We were visited by 3 owls today, a Barn Owl, a Tawny Owl and an Indian Scoop Owl. We found out about where they live and what they eat. We saw their wings and felt their really soft feathers.
