Year 2 visit Penzance Gym Club

This week, all of the children in year 2 participated in their first gym session at Penzance Gym Club.

All of the children received expert coaching, whilst learning how to balance on the beam, jumping from a vault and also participating in a variety of stretch routines. All of the children had a great experience and can’t wait for their second visit next week.

 

 

 

 

Year 2 Explore North Quay

As part of this terms Geography topic, ‘Coasts and Oceans’, year 2 spent a lovely day at North Quay beach.

After walking to the beach, in the lovely sunshine, the children spent the day sketching the beautiful scenery, recording physical and human features and also creating a selection of sand sculptures.

Take a look at the scenery photographs, can you name any physical or human features?

 

 

 

 

Welcome Back Year 2!

What an exciting first day it has been in year two for both children and teachers.  All children have had a great first day back and from the smiles on their faces you could tell  that they were all thrilled to be back at school playing and interacting with their friends.

The children were also very delighted with the new play equipment and refurbished fire pit.

Year 2 become Kings and Queens

To coincide with their history topic, Castles, Kings and Queens, year 2 planned and participated in a very Royal Kings and Queens dressing up day. On this day, all of the children from class 5 and 6 arrived at school wearing capes, dresses, crowns and robes. During the afternoon the children sang Tudor songs, performed a Tudor dance and held a special banquet. A great day was had by all.

Class 6 have been learning in the great outdoors

Class 6 have enjoyed learning outdoors.

Class 6 have had a great start to the new term. They are really enjoying taking their learning outside where they have been able to calculate a variety of number problems and then discuss their reasoning.

The children have also been busy collecting and recording facts about polar bears and discovering who built the first castles in the U.K.

Well done Class 6, I am very proud of you all for making a great start to the new term

Mrs Ruffell

 

 

 

Sports Day 2020

2020 brought around a slightly different kind of sports day. Over 100 of our pupils took part in first ever Rainbow games, both at home and in school.

The day consisted of children competing in for their houses in a range of throwing, jumping and running activities alongside some cross-curricular olympic themed activities such as designing/cooking a healthy meal; researching one of the continents; creating banner and posters to show their support for their house.

A brilliant event with many children engaging in the activities. Over 18000 points were shared between the 4 houses with less than 100 separating first and second.

Results are announced in the below video!
