Class 3 were lucky to have a lovely day for our WW2 workshop today and we had a great time finding out about life for children and evacuees, drills, Morse code and code breaking as well has having the opportunity to hold and investigate different artifacts. We learnt to spot who might be a spy  (who would have suspected innocent [...]

Pen Recycling… here!

There are two local Terra Cycle collection points (Caen & the Academy) so the only way we can do pen recycling is to collect and take en-masse. Thanks to Ali Crossman, we now have a box just by the entrance to school where you can bring your old writing instruments. Ali's going to take them to the Academy when there's [...]


At this Friday's 150th service, we'll also be taking the produce (and sellotaped coins) to the church for BPAG / Encompass SW. Please send in produce, tins, cartons etc., that you may not need, as these are needed hugely by some families, even as close as Barnstaple.

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 [...]

Last mention of Lundy, I promise!

Lundy - last time I mention it this academic year I promise (maybe not actually!) We've loads of really nice photos if you'd like to view or download them... but I've also, finally finished editing the Go-Pro footage. Sadly, we're missing the main bulk of Wednesday's walk due to a dead battery - the quarry, German 'Heinkel' bomber, Admiralty's lookout, [...]

Welcome to Mrs Ivall and Miss Smale!

Welcome to both Karen Ivall and Emily Smale to our lovely school! You may have seen Mrs Ivall collecting Class 3 from the playground occasionally these past two weeks... but Miss Smale had her first afternoon with her class and children today in our school's 'Shift-Up Afternoon.' Shift-up afternoons give a great opportunity for our children to see and experience [...]

Pride of School Day…

I had a brilliant day at school today. :-) You may notice that this is being posted about a SATURDAY, in school...  I know!  I'm normally doing something with my own kids; playing in the park, scootering, cycling or exploring the rocks on Baggy, but we all went to school early this morning and whilst they had fun in the [...]
