Blue Peter Reminder… 5.30

Just in case anyone's remembered, but forgotten the day & time, it's TONIGHT, at 5.30!Excited children yet??

Whole School Bike ride… (The 10th?)

Another year... Another hot day! Off the top of my head, we have the Bideford 30 mile route, the Instow 24 for an ice cream, the Fremington 18 for a cream tea, the Rock Park 12 for a play and school's bike themed day too! We haven't calculated properly, but we think we've been doing this for 10 years now. [...]


Year 6s always end their year with a waterfight in their last week. Apparently, today's was, "AWESOME!"

Blue Peter… Comes to Georgeham!

(Photo gallery at the bottom.) I still can't quite believe that Blue Peter came to the school yesterday!

Sports Day…


Eco Council or Climate Committee?

Sports Challenges…

Today was our mini sports' day... called Sports Challenge Day. Based on Athletic Union standards, distances and timings, Yr2 and older children challenged their personal results to try to beat or improve upon them. A great day! Remember sun cream and water for Thursday please.

HOT Summer Fair…

What a brilliant one! Loads of fun, loads of laughs & loads of funds for FROGS! Woop! (Also... NOT loads of s-u plastic either; two tonic bottles only!) For those that missed it, we gave out the 6 Values Awards and told everyone that Blue Peter are coming to visit our school in 9 sleeps time! Get those badges out [...]

Making paper…!

That was a nice surprise, to walk in to class 4 library and see that they were making their own paper. Not sure if you've ever done this before, but it's fussy and messy work, and yet they were doing a great job and the finished sheets look LOVELY! Wonder what they'll be used for?
