Place value basketball!

This week we've started learning our teen numbers. We've learnt a new number each day and played lots of different games and activities to represent the number in different ways. Today we played place value basketball, we started off with the game on topmarks ( where we learnt that the 1 at the start of the teen number is actually [...]

We’re going on a minibeast hunt!

We've started learning all about minibeasts! We've been looking at different types of minibeasts and the micro-habitats that they live in. We've been learning about different words such as 'predator' 'prey' 'camoflague.' Oscar demonstrated to us that his coat is camoflauged! He stood in front of a black display wall and we thought it would be tricky for a predator [...]

Remembrance Tree…

This morning, several children from each school in the Braunton Learning Cooperative Trust went to the small green in the centre of Braunton to plant a tree and dedicate it to Captain Sir Tom Moore. The BLC Trust thought that this inspirational man and the duties he'd carried over his 99 years, represented so much of our own individual schools' [...]

Welcome back!

Everything's been so busy on our return - we wanted to blog yesterday but we've just had so much to do! Our return has of course been made so much more pleasant with the weather.  We were talking in our (two) staffrooms that the children have settled in really well, and have really enjoyed playing on the field with their [...]

EYFS Forest Village, part3.

It seems like ages since we've been in the Forest Village area to do any work, and even though we've most probably done parts 3, 4, and part 5 already, today seemed like the first time we've been back since we had the builders in. Since last summer, we've had a 20 foot square canopy erected over the artificial turf [...]

School Lunches treats…

Keri has made cupcakes for school lunches today and what with it being Easter, of course they HAD to be chocolate related and have eggs involved too! Darn it, I missed a trick... I brought in left-overs from last night! :-( Just to recap on chocolates, sweets and treats in school, we do share things at Easter and Christmas and [...]
