Taster morning in class 1

We had a lovely morning with the pre-school children for their transition taster in class 1. Although they've spent lots of time in class 1 already, it was nice for them to have the room to themselves and have a good explore! We played some speaking and listening games, created our own 'all about me' poster and practiced our scissor [...]

Olympic Day!

Tuesday was our Olympic Day for Bubble 1! For our opening cermony, we marched around the running track waving our flags and chanting for the different countries. We then split off into our country groups and took part in a variety of Olympic activities. We had javelin, beanbag toss, long jump, hurdles and a cycle race. We worked well as [...]

Penalty Shoot-Out!

Whilst we were busy making our England flags this afternoon, we decided to go outside for our own penalty shoot-out! Harry Kane...eat your heart out!

Beach day!

What an amazing day we have all had - the children were absolutely fantastic! We even had one member of the public say how lovely it was to hear and see children having such fun together. We had a brilliant sandcastle competition with many categories including; the spookiest, the deepest hole, the tallest, the most imaginative...so many winners! [...]

Releasing the butterflies!

  On Tuesday we had the excitement of 2 butterflies emerging from their chrysalis! On Wednesday, we noticed that another two chrysalides had gotten darker, which meant the next two butterflies were getting ready! By Thursday morning we had four butterflies, we fed them bits of orange. Today we took them outside to release them! Three of the [...]

Moving the chrysalides!

We learnt a new word yesterday - 'chrysalides' - which means more than one chrysalis! It's a bit tricky to say...(even Miss Smale keeps getting it wrong!!) We moved the chrysalides out of the cup (which was mostly caterpillar poo by this point). It was a bit scary because they are so delicate and we had to make sure we [...]

Fun in the sun!

It may not have been Rosemoor, but we had lots of fun at the park this morning. We were so lucky with the weather! We worked in pairs to find different minibeasts; we found black beetles, ants, woodlouse and butterflies! We talked about the different habitats that each minibeast has and where would be a good place to look for [...]

Rosemoor Trip – Cancelled

Dear Parents, Unfortunately, we have had to make the decision to cancel the Rosemoor trip arranged for classes 1 and 2 tomorrow. We have been informed that the road between Barnstaple & Torrington is closed all week, which would have meant the coach being diverted through Bideford. The journey time is therefore significantly increased and would have meant that the time [...]

Caterpillar update!

Two out of five are now in their chrysalis. Fingers crossed the other 3 wait another day so that we can watch together!

Baby Caterpillars!

We had a very exciting delivery this morning...5 baby caterpillars! We are so excited to watch them grow over the next few weeks. We've learnt lots about the life cycle of a butterfly and almost know 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' off by heart. We're going to keep a caterpillar diary over the next few weeks to see the different changes [...]
