Young Leaders Afternoon

A huge well done to Class 4 for organising some great activities this afternoon for Classes 2 and 3. Everyone did brilliantly...and the sun shone!

5’s Boosters…

Homophones ("same sound"), grammar, speech and general errors were the order of our year 5 booster yesterday. We tried to get to the bottom of WHY it's like that, but also clever ways to REMEMBER it so we use them in our writing! There, they're and their are common mistakes, and so is your and you're. Of and off also [...]

Ambitious Swimming…

Some of our Class 3 & 4 children had an EXCELLENT morning at the Braunton Learning Community swimming gala today. 3rd place, amongst some very good, and also larger schools, is an excellent position to achieve!

Year 5’s Boosters…

"Boosters this morning," stated Mr Thomas, "is going to cover speech marks, otherwise known as inverted commas, and also percentages, decimals and fractions."

SATs Parents’ Evening…

We held an information evening for our Year 6 parents on Tuesday regarding the SATs (Standardised Assessment Tests) that are coming up in May. We don't make a big deal of the SATs and we really don't want to stress children out about this - and actually, there ISN'T anything to stress about (remember that) - but we also need [...]

“Divibilivisibility” & Boosters….

A lovely focused session this morning on divisibility with year 5. Are ALL even numbers that end with 0, 2, 4, 6 & 8, divisible by 4? ...(No. What about 6... or 42?) We also revised word classes and sentence structure. That adverb at the start has something missing; can you work it out? Lastly, we upgraded the sentence to [...]

Bob Cruwys and ITV cameraman, Roger, came and asked us what we'd done to become an accredited Single-Use Plastic Free School and why it was important.  Our Class 4 School [...]
