This week we have continued with our fractions unit in maths, recognising and finding a quarter and finding three quarters.
In literacy we completed our 'Mousehole Cat' writing. I was blown away by your fantastic writing! I had to send your parents a photo of a piece of your writing in September and your Mousehole Cat story so they could see how astounding the difference was. Have a look at some of our before and after photos.
Miss Owen came in again to teach us music. We continued our work on musical duration (the lengths of the notes). We used the animals from last week but put them in our own order this week and demonstrated our understanding of different lengths of notes in time to a steady beat.
We listened to 'Spring' by Vivaldi and discussed what the music made us think of.
"It sounds like animals coming out of hibernation" - Cori
"Those wiggly bits are like bees building a hive." - Luke
"The beginning reminds me of lambs jumping around." - Ivy
In Science we thought about what animals including humans need to survive.
This week we have been carrying on with our literacy learning about 'The Mousehole Cat'.
We have learnt to collect adjectives and use them to create similes to describe characters and settings.
Our writing is amazing!
In maths, Miss Evans has been finding out what we know and understand, ready to plan our work for after Easter.
We have also been learning about St. Patrick's Day and Miss Owen came in to do music with us. We learnt about the duration of notes.
In P.E. we are still doing netball and were learning how to pass a ball this week.
It's been so lovely to see everyone back in school this week!
We've had time to play and catch up with our friends inside and outside when the weather allowed.
Our big question is 'Where Do We Live?'
We started learning about this during lockdown when we learnt about St. Piran's Day.
This week in our literacy we have been listening to and watching the story of The Mousehole Cat. We have enjoyed exploring the story, we found where we live on the map, found Mousehole and we looked at Miss Evans' holiday pictures from Mousehole.
In maths we have started a new unit on fractions and have been exploring parts and wholes this week. We have also been recapping on finding half.
I have managed to hear everyone read this week and it is lovely to see that so many of them have continued to make progress during lockdown so thank-you to all of the amazing parents who worked so hard at home. It's definitely been worth it!
Wow, we made it! Well done everyone on persevering with your home learning and keeping motivated.
Whilst I have loved seeing all the amazing things you have been learning at home, I can't wait to welcome you back to class on Monday.
It was a fun packed week for the last week with a double celebration of World Book Day on Thursday and St. Piran's Day on Friday.
We also learnt about St. David's Day on Monday.
In maths we have been learning about shape. We can now name and describe 2D and 3D shapes and we managed to find some shapes in our local area whilst making the most of the lovely weather we've had this week.
If it stays nice, we are planning to do some planting in our outdoor area on Monday afternoon. Miss Evans has been busy clearing it up and tidying it so we can use it for learning outside over the next few months.
Enjoy the weekend and see you soon!
I hope you all had a restful half term. What fantastic news that we are back to school soon.
I have really missed you all and can't wait to see you and teach you in 'real life'!
For home learning this week we have been writing a recount of our half term and learning about Spring.
In maths we finished our unit about statistics, have a look at our photos of our brilliant work.
In our topic lessons this week we have been learning R.E. We have focussed on Islam, learnt about the 5 pillars and learnt about how Muslims pray.
We also read the story about 'The Boy Who Threw Stones at Trees'. We thought about the message within the story and considered how we might care for trees.
Another great week of work Fistral Class, well done for keeping motivated.
This week in Y2 we have been 'feeling the love'!
In literacy we have been learning the story behind Valentine's Day and creating our own poems. We have also been making Valentine's cards and completed a reading comprehension about the day.
In maths we started a new unit about statistics so we have been busy making tallies and exploring pictograms.
In our topic work we finished our materials unit with an investigation into which materials we can change by bending, twisting, squashing and stretching.
We also had an outdoor learning session where we hunted for nature hearts. Take a look at our photos to see all the wonderful things we found. Love really is everywhere!
We also had fun creating some Valentine's crafts.
Don't forget next week is half term so well done for all your hard work at home and in school. Also Monday 22nd February is an INSET day so no work will be set.
I wish you a restful and safe break.
This week has been all about birds.
As it is the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch we thought it would be fun to have a bird themed week.
The children have had great fun making bird feeders and looking out for birds in their gardens. They have learnt to identify different birds and have made fact files for different birds.
In maths we have been finishing our multiplication unit.
This week we came to the end of our topic.
In literacy we pretended to be a cat and, using last week's sequencing activity, made a plan of what we might see/hear/smell each day.
Then over the rest of the week we wrote a cat diary. Have a look at the photos to see what amazing ideas we came up with!
In maths we continued with our multiplication unit, looking at arrays and learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
We did some naming and describing of materials in science this week. We collected all sorts of weird and wonderful things from our homes to explore.
Then on Friday, we used what we had learnt to design our own houses.
This week we have continued with our topic 'The Great Fire of London'.
In literacy we have been collecting adjectives and learning about expanded noun phrases.
We then used what we had learnt to write a description of a scene from the fire.
In maths we have been continuing with our multiplication unit and in our topic work we have been sequencing events and also thinking about which historical sources are useful for helping us find out about what happened in 1666.
Again I am blown away by the wonderful things the children are learning at home so I have added some photos that I have been sent this week.
Well done everyone on completing week 3 of home learning.
This week has seen some super home learning.
It has been wonderful to see all of your work and photos on Seesaw, I do miss seeing you in real life though.
I am so impressed with how hard you are all working.

Here are some photos so you can see our wonderful work.
