Life Education bus…

Class 3 went to the Life Skills caravan this morning.We were introduced to many different organs in the body and were told about the jobs they do. Which one is the most important? How do nerves work? Oscar had to pass the message on for Sam to wave his hand at a friend across the road. Sam got tired waving [...]

Three Weeks In….

Well we made it! We all survived a whole week of full days in Class 1! Well done everybody. We've had a very fun week, learning lots of sounds, practising our number work and making sure we are safe when walking on the roads. We have been practising our movements outside where we have experimented with different ways of travelling [...]

Class 4 tennis festival at Tarka

Class 4 spent a great morning at Tarka Tennis today taking part in a range of tennis related activities. It was our first sporting event of the year and I was really proud of the way they had fun, but worked hard on their skills and supported each other! Well done everyone! Tarka have offered everyone who took [...]

Hungry…

Apples from the garden = gorgeous apple cake! ...and funnily enough, I watched the Victorian episode of Bake Off last night and Keri had made this for today! Come on Keri... when's the parents' lunch?!

Cake sale…

Alongside The Quay Climbing Centre who are collecting up sleeping bags and other items that could help the refugees, Sam heard the news and wondered how [...]

Putsborough Beach Walk / Run…

It turned out to be a lovely day and so after school we really enjoyed a walk on the beach.  Of course, some of us decided to run... well, I say, "us" but really I walked to Woolacombe a good 1/2 hour before you all.  the yellow Sea King buzzed me a little until I got close to the gliders [...]

Open The Book…

Our first Open The Book assembly, quite appropriately for the start of the year and our SEAL theme of New Beginnings, was about Genesis and the new start. We had a quiet moment thinking about the beautiful things that we'd seen recently (maybe a lovely sunset or gorgeous surf) and also an opportunity to think about people who needed help, [...]

Victorians at Arlington

Class 4 had a great day at Arlington Court today, finding out what it would be like to have worked there during the Victorian period. The children applied for positions in the kitchen, garden or household staff and were put through their paces by the housekeeper who was looking to employ young trainees to prepare for the return of the [...]

Our River Lyn trip…

A brilliant day today studying Hoaroak Water and the East Lyn River from Hillsford Bridge down to Lynmouth. As far as studying rivers is concerned, we learnt about: rain being the start of the journey (it rained until lunchtime) the source of the river tributaries joining the river erosion of the river banks and also the paths the river meandering [...]
