Class 1 Tower

Class 1 were given a challenge earlier. In teams, the children had to make the tallest and strongest tower, using only marshmallows and spaghetti. This was not an easy challenge! There were prizes for the team who could make the best (free-standing) tower and the team that showed the best teamwork skills! Everyone did a great job and learnt a [...]

Along the Coast – Ilfracombe

Class 2 had a lovely day in Ilfracombe yesterday!  Huge thanks to the people at the Aquarium and at the Lifeboat Station for making it a really interesting day.  Our rock pooling skills didn't prove to be so successful, but lots of fun was had on Tunnels Beach, just enjoying our stunning environment. Thanks to FROGS for the ice-cream and [...]

:-( Last netball session, this year…

It was our last netball training session of this season today. Although we were short on numbers with year 6 in London, the girls certainly made up for in enthusiasm and attitude. Player of The Week this week was all of them! They've improved no end getting to grips with footwork, shooting and spacing. Really proud of them. Here they [...]

Class 1 Fruit Tasting Afternoon

In Class 1 we have been looking at the story 'Handa's Surprise' and have been learning about different fruits. Yesterday we had a very exciting fruit tasting afternoon. The children were AMAZING and tried everything! :-) They were very grown up and even had a go at trying things that they weren't sure they liked. They often surprised themselves by [...]

Results of the Boat Race….

The deadline for completion was 2.30pm on Monday, and each boat was given 2 attempts to race down the 3 metre trough - it was a very demanding task as although most of the boats were fine in the paddling pool, getting them to go straight for 3m was way harder! The results for the fastest boats were [...]

Our Country and Western Showdown!

What a brilliant day some of our Class 3 had! The Braunton Learning Community got together and took part in the Northern Devon Springtime Celebration at the Queen's Theatre on Monday night, with 4 of our local schools collaborating on a Country and Western showdown! 11 of our children took part and played Ukeleles, the drums (you know that straw-chewing, [...]

The Great Class 4 Boat Race…

Last week Class 4 designed and built their own motor powered boats. There were some creative (and original!) ideas, and yesterday was the moment of truth when we raced the boats down a 3m trough... Today is the 'best design' competition...results to be announced soon... A massive thanks to all the paents who helped: Mick, Darrin, Steve, Matt, [...]

End of SATs Party 2016

Class 4 had a great afternoon celebrating all of their hard work and effort this week. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the party :-)

I am NEVER letting Class 4 decorate my house ;-)

In class 4 we have been choosing words for effect in our poetry. The children were given the challenge of changing the names of paint from appealing and tasteful names such as; Blue Saturn, Oyster Pearl and Lilac Grey to some much more disgusting (and funny) names. Some of our favourites were; Stinky Elephant Breath Grey, Sweaty Socks Grey, Fungus [...]
