Be Confident… To Be The One…

It's Anti-Bullying week.  Have a look at this video! In assembly this morning, we talked about being confident to be the one who does something about bullies! We briefly touched on what a bully is too of course. > Everyone can be mean or do something that hurts in some way - accidentally or by choice - but when this happens [...]

"Mr. Thomas.... we have a problem." 😂

Our 150th Celebration!

What a lovely afternoon's service! Class 4 started us off with a walk through from 1868.  What would they put in a Time Capsule back then?  We fast tracked back to the present day and opened up their Time Capsule only to start another in the present day... and again we zoomed to the school of the future where they [...]

TR YOUTH Choir…

Nine of our children attended the first of six workshops at Kingsacre School of the newly formed Teachers Rock YOUTH Choir. A couple of gospel numbers (after all, our Patron is Rev. Bazil Meade MBE from the London Community Gospel Choir) and then a little bit of Altogether Now by The Farm, playing about with two-part harmony. Six weeks later [...]

Broad range of skills…

The life of a small school Headteacher! I thought I'd share this morning's randomness... From delivering tea around school, unblocking the drain this morning that could have caused our younger children to walk through curtain of water, to an audit on the new GDPR regulations. And that's all before playtime. Quite broad and random sometimes!

Sean’s Day tomorrow…

Don't forget it's Sean's Day tomorrow; Friday 14th. It would be lovely to break the £100 mark but with over 100 children, that should be easy. We'll let you know how we do in the newsletter tomorrow. Our "Sean's Day" is an easy and fun way of gaining some financial support for a charity in Africa called Challenge Ministries Swaziland [...]

150 pledges…

It's our 150th year and we've got some pledges from children pinned to the board in the school entrance, promising to raise funds for the school through well deserved sponsorships. We've seen some really challenging challenges, such as... Completing 150 laps of the field (which would be really ambitious if that was in a single day?) Kissing Dad 150 times [...]

Braunton Football @ Guernsey…

Archie Cresswell spent his weekend in Guernsey with Braunton Football Club playing at the BMCI Soccer tournament against 20 other teams. They did amazingly well, winning all 10 games in their group. And even though they were 1 point ahead of Group B's winner, Everton Academy, they lost their game with them in the semi-finals. Amazing result for Braunton who [...]

Sunny DIY… ☀️🌳🔨

It's SUNNY. And with it this sunny I really did feel that we had to do something about the shade, dust and bird poo covering huge sections of the solar panels. Our year 6 let me down with their water fight so I had to see how far my hose pipe could get to the panels... the spray only just [...]

Biking Day… 🚴🚵🚴

Yet another successful bike riding day! ...Only a couple of grazed knees and chains fallen off, but altogether an amazingly good day! The Bideford Bunch got there in good time and enjoyed lunch on the beach at Instow. The Fremington Frenzy was a HUGE group but it really worked well this year with amazingly considerate children and helpful parents too. [...]
