Funny for Money in Class 4

In class 4 we decided to have a Red Nose Day theme to our learning today as our farm visit was rained off. We started off the day by thinking about what Comic Relief is all about and made our faces 'funny for money'....the theme of the event this year. Some of the faces were quite funny without masks [...]

Red Nose/Comic Relief Day Fun in Class 1

Even though we were slightly disappointed that rain stopped us going to the farm today, Class 1 soon got over it with all the excitement of taking part in some Red Nose activities. We all dressed up as farmers and some as a farmer's wife, designed our own Red Noses and coloured in some special dinosaur red noses. We then [...]

Reception have great fun at Braunton Academy!

Yesterday, all the Reception children boarded a mini-bus for a morning of Multi-Skills at Braunton Academy. We had a fantastic time trying out all the different skills at each Station including, skipping, hurdles, hula-hooping, throwing, catching and slalom. We had to concentrate very hard on listening to the instructions and making sure we tried to do our very best. As [...]

Class 4 visit the Eden Project!

It was a very early start (well done to everyone for getting there well before time!) but the children all seemed suitably impressed when the Biomes of The Eden Project came into view. After dropping our things in The Core we went to see the WEEE Man (a giant sculpture made out of electrical waste) and then onto [...]

What can we see?

Class 4 have been finding out how we see things and today we our own made periscopes. A periscope allows us to see over walls or round corners :-) Beau B did a fantastic job in assembly by explaining that periscopes work by light hitting the mirror of the periscope being reflected twice at a 45 degrees angle. "I can't believe it [...]

Numbers, Numbers, Numbers and a visit from Paddington Bear!

Class 1 had a very special treat this morning, a visit from Paddington Bear! We have been reading 'Paddington at the Palace' and he thought he would drop in to pay us a visit in person. Each one of us held Paddington when it was our turn to retell part of the story, so he got to know us all [...]
