Class 2's page
We have been learning about what animals need to stay alive and to be healthy. We are looking at the environment around us and whether wild animals in our area have all they need for healthy lives. This will also be useful information if we are going to have a pet at home. Many of us have taken rescue animals into our homes as our family pets and know quite a lot on how to look after animals. We have been lucky enough to have some guinea pigs brought into school to help in our studies.
Class 2 picked apples from the nature reserve to make crumbles, then we delivered them to people in the village who may not be able to get out or may not see anyone in a day.
After a democratic vote, all of class 2 chose to deliver the crumbles instead of a P.E. lesson! (They do love P.E.)
They all seemed very happy to see us and hopefully enjoyed their special treat.
Class 2 have been given the opportunity to be part of a very special Cornish hedging project this half term.
The whole project is called “Kerdroya”, which means labyrinth in Cornish. The project leaders are working with schools in areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to repair/start Cornish hedges using traditional techniques and local rocks.
Cornish hedges are made from stone and earth, the earth goes on to provide a habitat for plants and animals and the structure can last for thousands of years.
Class 2 have had a workshop in school and the next stage is to actually work at the hedging site, with an expert Cornish hedge builder. They will each lay a stone so will be leaving a legacy!
Once the project is complete, a labyrinth will be created on Bodmin Moor using stones and techniques from each of the areas.
