Designing our own science games 😄

Class 3 had an awesome time on Friday making their own games using magnets to end our science unit about Forces and Magnets. I loved seeing all the determined expressions and smiles of the children. Great team work and so much fun. At the end of the morning children moved around and played each others games. Well done class 3. [...]

To infinity and beyond!

Wow! Every child at Georgeham travelled into spaced(dome) today. We found out so much in the Space Odyssey. Lots of gasps, smiles and amazing questions. Awesome 👨‍🚀👩‍🚀🚀

Year 5&6 Coordinates…

We reminded ourselves what coordinates were in our Booster Session this morning, but also how they develop through the years at school so that, by the time that children get to year 6, we're working out complex 4-figure coordinates in all four quadrants! Our whiteboard scribbles and worksheets mean almost nothing unless you were part of the session itself or [...]

Heating issues…

Open as normal, but we DO have heating issues at school. Only classes 2, 3 & 4 will probably have to keep extra jumpers on for the morning, but thankfully, classrooms do heat up with children's energy by midday! If you have an electric heater at home that you could lend us - do please bring it in to school. [...]

Pancake Races… AKA ‘What’s “Shrove” mean again??’

Today, we managed to get out and run across the playground with tortillas wraps on frying pans, to lots and lots of cheers and applause from the rest of the school. I bet this was SO confusing for our Preschoolers who came to watch!! Keri also made a whole load of pancakes for school lunches and they had a couple [...]

Gliddon and Squire Cross Country League… Blows Out in Style….

The last event in the 2019/20 league saw a reduced team of Kitty, Elfini and Presley battle windy and very muddy conditions at West Buckland School to complete their final cross country run of the league.  They all battled well despite some injuries (Kitty) and a lot of mud.  At the end of the run the annual prize giving saw [...]

Our School Council… on food.

Our School Council meetings take place every month so that I can share my thoughts and make some decisions alongside representatives from every class.  They, in turn, read minutes back to the rest of their class and discuss the items we spoke about. For a while now, some of the year 6 children have made comments about portion sizes being [...]

Double Trouble!

This week we have started looking at multiplication. Reception have been learning how to double numbers! We've been using our doubling machine to help us. We also went outside and used different objects to show doubles, we each had a go at writing the number sentence to go with it. Year 1s have been building arrays. We started looking at [...]
