Welcome to Canute Class - we have been very busy this term so far:

We have been studying ‘fields, feathers and fur’. We began this topic by meeting Spot and Smudge Mrs Payne’s two rabbits. We learnt about how to care for rabbits and were lucky enough to hold Smudge! The children have produced some fantastic writing this half term, which they should be very proud of. We have used the text Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell and have written recounts of the story from the ducks perspective. These are up on our class wall – please come in and have a read! In Maths we have been revising our addition and subtraction skills, used mirrors to investigate symmetry and the year 2’s have also been working hard exploring capacity and data. The children have especially enjoyed Science this half term, we have studied habitats around the world and close to home. As a class we went on a walk around the village to spot as many habitats that we could, the children have used this walk as inspiration for their ‘Habitat Maps’ of Polruan. These are absolutely wonderful and again up on the wall in our classroom for you to come and have a look at. A highlight of this half term was having our animal encounter. We were able to meet snakes, lizards, a skinny pig, tarantula, millipedes and even a giant bunny called George! The children were very brave. We are now looking forward to our trip to the Lost Gardens of Heligan next week to conclude our learning on this topic. Next half term our topic will be ‘Peter Rabbit’. If anyone has anything that they would like to bring in relating to this topic please do not hesitate.
