All the children in Key Stage 2, but especially the Year 6s, have worked incredibly hard this week doing their SATs tests. As a special treat, we went to see an amazing performance of 'I was a Rat', adapted from the book of the same name by Philip Pullman, at the Northcott Theatre. The play was performed by just eight actors who took on all the roles wearing incredible costumes to help tell the story. It was very atmospheric but also funny and a real treat for everyone. When we got back to school, we also had our obligatory end of SATs ice-creams!!

This morning the children have made a start on constructing our plastic bottle greenhouse. The children have worked sensibly and co-operatively to clean, remove labels, cut off the bottoms of the bottles and thread them onto bamboo canes. Once the base of the greenhouse is in place these sticks of plastic bottles will be secured in place to create the walls of the greenhouse. Thank you to all those who collected 2 litre bottles for us but we still need more! The greenhouse requires approximately 1,500 bottles in total!

Unfortunately the weather has prevented some of our crops from growing as well as we hoped but the children all had fun! The exhibit is on display at the Devon County Show along with some other imag

Class One have been learning about how important it is to protect their heads when out and about on their bikes. The children learnt about why their brains were precious by watching a short video called 'Jonny and the Rocket'. The children then compared their heads to an egg! They predicted what would happen if an egg was dropped, discussed how they could protect the egg and finally predicted whether the egg would still smash when it was protected my a special egg helmet. This was a great way for the children to learn a very important lesson about wearin

Today was the first day we could use our new play area and it was very popular. First down the slide were Brooke and Fleur; first on the tyres were Quentin, Aaron and Josh. We know all the children will enjoy having an extra play area and are very grateful to the 'Big Lottery Fund' and Councillor Gerry Brook for their support.
