Meet the Teachers
Reading at Home
In Year 1 we have been learning about instructions. During our oracy lesson we did a back-to-back activity where our partner gave us instructions to draw an image.
On World Book Day the children dressed up as their favourite book character and shared their stories. Each Key Stage 1 teacher took turns to read a story to each class to build our enthusiasm for reading for pleasure.
In maths Year 2 have been focusing on multiplication. They have learnt to use counters to show arrays before drawing the arrays themselves.
The Year 1 children are beginning to write their stories based on The Bumblebear story by Nadia Shireen. As a part of this unit of work Mrs Davis led a drama session for both classes to innovate the story to the Doggycat.
On Friday 31st January Mrs Cayless took 12 Year 2 children to the aesthetics festival at Dawlish Learning Community.
During practical maths sessions the Year 2 children have been learning to read scales. This week they’ve been measuring in litres and millilitres.
In Year 2 we have been holding balances in gymnastics during PE sessions.

Little Red Riding Hood Basket Making
Little Red Riding Hood needed a new basket after the wolf broke hers. In Design and Technology Year 2 have designed, made and evaluated their own baskets which they made by weaving paper…Look how clever they are!
Little Red Riding Hood
In English Unit 1 have been reading Little Red Riding Hood. They have sequenced the story and acted it out before rewriting the story themselves.
