Our school's Eco Council has been a subsection of our School Council for years now. We've made important decisions about many things in the past and we've been hugely successful recently in becoming the first school awarded as a Plastic-Free School by the SAS. With our work in this area expanding, we split the groups up last year and [...]
Class 2 looked at alliteration and rhyme this morning and tried our own poems, similar to Emma Dodd's 'I Like Bugs' - like this example, that's just brilliant! I love scary, snappy, shiny-red bugs and weepy, watery, crawly bugs. Here are a few others... I love birds.... I love screechy, tweety, loud birds. I love quiet, shy, white birds. I [...]
Class 2 had a fabulous day out at Dunster Castle, thanks to the wonderful setting and some brilliant workshops laid on by the National Trust. We had the Great Hall all to ourselves and practised our Knightly skills, including jousting and sword fighting. We learnt that a knight would start his apprenticeship at 7 years old! We saw all the [...]
Just like tennis club this morning, the rain brought the club inside. This week's multi-skills had lots of activities, and fortunately there wasn't anything broken... unlike this morning! 😳😂 Thanks Tamsin... Some very excited children absolutely having a ball and thoroughly enjoying themselves! Thanks!

Just pass them over to your child, they'll know where to put them. Which reminds me, we need [...]

Our Family Groups have all different ages of kids in them, they're really happy, and everyone comes together to talk about different things and we help each other. [...]
(Photo gallery at the bottom.) I still can't quite believe that Blue Peter came to the school yesterday! It all started a few years ago when the school became a 'Beach Rep' for the Surfers Against Sewage - the first and only School Rep with our School Council / Eco Council being the representatives. The charity soon developed a program [...]
Essex Dance Theatre (exactly what it says on the tin) tours down this way every year to show what they've been up to and run a workshop. After a delayed start, we arrived to see several of their dances. We then had a go ourselves and were put through our paces by the dancers! Yes, we adults also [...]
