Tennis Festival

Class 3 look set to be the next generation of Davis Cup Winners if today was anything to go by! They really performed well at the Tarka Tennis Centre and had great fun, especially in the beat the teacher competition where they well and truly beat me (one team scoring 20 - Love)

Time travelling Class 3

Class 3 travelled back in time to the 1940s with a workshop led by Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum or RAMM. The children took part in a Morse code workshop as well as learning about all aspects of the Homefront through artefacts and drama. They all looked the part in their WWII costumes so well done to everyone and we [...]

Thanks FROGS…!

Class 2's entrance and cloakroom has just got brighter thanks to FROGS funding, resulting in more space to display some of the children's excellent work.  Thank you very much! And what's also quite handy, is we've now got a spare blue board for Class 3's room, which just so happens to have a blue theme... Brilliant! In planning for FROGS' [...]

Mr Thomas in Class 2…

Quick question for you. How many vertical lines on my shirt? Martha said that to GUESS, you'd have no idea at all.  For instance (another question...) How many spots are there on my blue shirt that's hanging up in my wardrobe at home? We had no idea and so we all guessed between 150 and 1,000,000. We decided [...]

Big thanks to Josh and Gudrun of the National Trust for the dry stone walling sessions - the children should be experts on how it's done!  They worked incredibly hard, were really enthusiastic and put in lots of effort! The second [...]
