Year 2 Camp

On Friday night some of the Year Two children joined children from across the federation for a Y2 sleepover.  The children had the opportunity to learn a variety of circus skills from silt walking to juggling to plate spinning!  Afterwards the children watched a circus performance and a Evie and Inigo were even asked to join in!  Then the children had a delicious BBQ supper before watching a film in the hall and eventually getting some sleep.  The children had a fantastic time and really enjoyed making friends with children in other schools.

Our Y6 children had a fabulous afternoon at Dunsford School.  They were there for a swim and free play with pupils from Hennock and Chudleigh Knighton schools as part of their transition to secondary school.  They had a great time splashing in the pool using the floats and inflatables, and also enjoyed using the equipment on the field and playing in the woods.

Class One visit Teignmouth Beach

As part of our Geography topic on the seaside the children in Class One were lucky enough to visit Teignmouth beach. The children were challenged to identify six man made and six natural items that you might find at the seaside as well as identifying key features of Teignmouth beach such as the pier and the harbour. After lunch the children engaged in some typical beach activities such as digging, creating pictures with sticks or shells as well as the most popular activity... jumping waves!

Machine-Building by Class 3, May 2017

The Class 3 children learnt about different types of force such as gravity, air resistance, friction and upthrust during their science week.  They also looked at the workings of simple machines which use levers, springs, gears and pulleys.  They then made their own simple machines using a variety of different mechanisms and demonstrated them to the rest of the pupils.  Some, such as Sophie's rubber-band-powered car transporting a Sylvanian family, worked really well!

May the Force be with You! Science Week in Class 3, May 2017

The Class 3 children have been learning all about forces during their science week.  They learnt about the force of gravity and discovered that they would only weigh one sixth of their Earthly weight if they were on the moon!  They also carried out a number of investigations into different forces such as friction, the upthrust of water and air resistance.  The photographs show the children investigating the factors that result in the most efficient spinners.
