Even Save The Spiders!

We were stormed by a huge swarm of horribly, large flies at lunchtime, and it inspired some to take drastic action! [Post Edit (thanks Matt)] Some jumped on, poked and splatted them, others started a chant to save them. Isla even wrote a persuasive poster - Save The Bugs... (and even save the spiders!)

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 [...]
