Academic Year 2018/19
Our Summer Term topic is ... 'The Circus'
Medium Term Planning
This term, children in Unit 1 have been learning through the topic of Good to be Me in their PSHE lessons. In order to encourage children to appreciate their own unique qualities as well as those of their classmates, we gave the children a project to complete over a number of weeks. We asked the children to create a 5-10 minute show and tell about themselves and what makes them unique in hope that through completion of this project they would discover similarities as well as differences between themselves and their peers. The presentations were a huge success and children showed real creativity in the way they chose to present!

The Enormous Turnip
On Tuesday 16th October Year 2 went to Farmwise in Exeter. This was a fantastic event that aimed to teach the children more about farming in Devon, how food is produced in Devon's farms and how farming links to the countryside. The children represented the school brilliantly and a fun day was had by all.
