Visit to University

Class 2 had an amazing trip to the University of Plymouth to be inspired and enthused by the author David Lawrence Jones. He is also one of the chancellors of the Children’s University. 

He is a real life author who began his journey at the age of 9!

We found out about his life with his pets, his childhood and why he loves writing. 


 


Farming Day 






Last Wednesday we had some visitors in to teach us about farming.
We learnt about food chains, different grains and meat, and we even got to dress up!




 


 

Climate Change Champions

Class 2 followed up their Skype chat with Luci Isaacson with a personal visit!

We found out about what we can do to play their part to protect our environment. The children looked at the 10 climate pledges that are little things everyone can do to make a difference. We are going to follow this with creating a song that will be performed at Eden!
