Good-bye and good luck to our fantastic 2016 year 6’s!

  It's always sad to see our year 6's leaving, but each and every one of this year's cohort have so much to be proud of that it was also really nice to celebrate their successes and look back at their achievements and highlights from the last 7 years. As a school we are really proud of how they have [...]

Yr 6 BBQ in style…

Yr 6 chose a BBQ for their leavers' lunch this year and carried it off in style... They dined al fresco with flowers on the table (thanks Miss Trute!) and a chocolate fountain with fruit and marshmallows for dessert. After a wet start to the day, we even had sunshine! Thanks to Kerry for putting on such a great spread, [...]

Class 4 Rock Pool Ramble

Class 4 have spent the day on the beaches at Woolacombe today, making the most of the fabulous weather! We started off the morning with the National Trust rangers doing a rock-pool ramble at Combesgate Beach which has amazing pools to explore. It was great to have the rangers there to tell us all about the wildlife that [...]

Architecture in Class 4

As part of our end of term maths assessment, class 4 worked in groups to create a 3d world using their knowledge of nets. We had lots of different ideas including a representation of London, a stables, a campsite, Candy Land (inspired by Candy Crush I think...) and a land inspired by a computer game. The whole class had a [...]

Peg Snatch

Children from West Down School, part of the West Berry Federation, came in today to show us a game called Peg Snatch that they enjoy playing at break time. Millie-Grace-"It was a really great way to get moving when you have been sitting in the classroom. It really helped watching West Down play first and they were really good [...]

Sports Day 2016

What a fantastic Sports Day! The children showed amazing team spirit by supporting each other and congratulating the winners. "Great race mate" was a comment heard more than once, to the winner of the race they had just competed in. :-) Thanks to FROGs each child will have a medal to celebrate their efforts. We also had some individual winners [...]

Space Day

We were all really proud of Class 3 yesterday as the Space Centre commented on how fantastically behaved the class were, as well as asking some brilliant questions. They were also really impressed with the project work displayed around the room. The children had a great day learning about Space and particularly Space exploration before making and launching [...]

Food Chains….with a difference…

In class 3 this afternoon we were learning about food chains. So....the children had to carry out research to find a food chain BUT they then display it in a way that would capture the interest of the audience. This meant they couldn't just draw a food chain in the traditional way like the one below.... but they had to get creative. [...]

Summer Fete 2016

We had another fantastic Summer fete this year. There were all the usual favourites of Splat the Rat, the raffle, Tin Can Alley and the BBQ but this year we introduced a Glastonbury feel with our very own Festival Tent that housed nail art, henna tattoos and flower creations. During the fete, the children showed their talents with an exceptional [...]
