Phase 2 Winter Exhibition – Wednesday 12th December
It’s with great pleasure and anticipation we invite you to our phase 2 exhibition next Wednesday the 12th of December.

The exhibition explores the question ‘How are places and people different?’ and is a redraft of our exhibition currently in London. It will feature work from all 240 students in Phase 2. ​

From PBL, we’ll be sharing our 10m x 3m scale model of the Tamar river which explores natural and human geographical features. From English, there’ll be an array of monologues and other works exploring life across the ages on the Tamar and Shackleton’s voyages. Maths will be displaying their learning on settlements through cooking their very own ginger bread settlements for your enjoyment. In addition, Sally will be leading the phase 2 children in singing some wonderful, winter inspired music for your enjoyment.

We’ll also be joined by Devon & Cornwall Refugee Support. We’ll be sharing the history of Devon and Cornwall and sharing stories of life from other parts of the world, to further understand our driving question ‘How are places and people different?”

The exhibition starts at 2pm and runs until 6pm (for those who may be working). The children and staff will be there until 3.15pm to share their learning. We’ll then hand students over to parents/after school care. You’re more than welcome to then stay on longer to continue exploring the learning. We’ll be keeping the river displayed in the atrium until the end of the term for those who can’t make it.

If you have any questions or queries, please contact your child’s Basecamp teacher in the first instance.
Best wishes,
The Phase 2 team.
