Mini Crickets

Class One have been really lucky to experience cricket lessons with Scott Chappell from the Devon Cricket Association.  Not only have the children been exposed to cricket from a passionate and experienced player but it has raised their interest in the sport, honed their cricketing skills, (throwing, catching, batting and fielding), but they have also been brilliant at working as part of a team.  It was a real pleasure to watch the older children support the younger children.

Hot Chocolate, Mayan Style! September 2016

The first project for the KS2 children this year is all about Mayan Culture.  The Mayans loved their chocolate, but it was not like the chocolate that we enjoy today.  They made their hot chocolate with water and chilli!  The children tried this version with varying outcomes, as you can see from the photographs!

Super Readers Club, September 2016

During the first School Council meeting, the children decided to form two reading clubs: one for KS1 and the other for KS2.  They have very quickly organised these with the younger children enjoying some books read by Emilia and the older children working with Lisa, our fantastic school cook, choosing the first book that they will share.  The photo shows the older children's first meeting in the school library.

Fire Service Visit, September 2016

The Fire Service came into school to work with all the pupils.  They told the children about the role of the Fire Service and the many jobs that fire fighters do.  They also taught the children about how to make an emergency plan for their home, what to do if someone's clothes were set alight and how to call the emergency services.  It was a very informative visit.

Castle Research Competion Winners, September 2016

The Key Stage 2 children were set a challenge to find out all about the castle of their house and to write an interesting report about it.  Three girls from Class 3 wrote fascinating pieces about the buildings and these are now displayed in the entrance hall.  The photograph shows the girls with their prizes.  Well done to our three masterly writers.

New Playleaders begin Autumn Term Competition, September 2016

As all children have the right to relax and play, our new team of playleaders have devised a new competition for the autumn term which they have called 'ball bounce'.  They showed the pupils how to play the game during a school assembly and have now begun to work with each house to see how many bounces and catches each child can do.  Which house will be victorious?

Music Assembly with Mr Buckley, September 2016

Mr Buckley, one of our peripatetic music teachers, gave an assembly about the different wind instruments that he plays and also teaches pupils to play.  He demonstrated each one, explaining how they worked, and told us about the families that they belonged to.  This very musical assembly may well inspire some pupils to take up an instrument and, maybe one day, be able to play as well as Mr Buckley.  It was certainly great fun to listen to and be a part of.
