Prepping for Week 2…

Dear parents, Well done for managing a week's worth of learning at home. I bet it's had its challenges, but also some fun bits too - I have four boys of my own at home, so I know only too well how hard it can be! We're about to head into the school's 'Easter Break,' but it's not going to [...]

Home learning ideas…

AKA, musing of a headteacher. We’re sending out ideas and packs today… And we’ll be populating web pages… But we thought we could host a place where people could post ideas? I'm sure Pinterest and Facebook will help here too, but it's a thought; a possible helpful page? It's also un-moderated.  Please be thoughtful of the audience! Link here, for [...]

Our School Council… on food.

Our School Council meetings take place every month so that I can share my thoughts and make some decisions alongside representatives from every class.  They, in turn, read minutes back to the rest of their class and discuss the items we spoke about. For a while now, some of the year 6 children have made comments about portion sizes being [...]

Inspired Playgrounds…

Most children were involved in lots of activity and games on our new playground markings today. Apart from being Martha's Dad, Ben Cox is the lead coach for 'Inspired Playgrounds' and he came in to help us all with an additional free session. Ben led the children in some playground sessions, helped explain how to use the markings to our [...]

How would you wash a fluffy penguin chick?

Class 2 were learning how to write instructions. We had lots of fun finding out how to do it and came up with some great ideas… e.g. someone thought it was going to be a ‘catastrophe’ ‘dunking’ him into the warm, bubbly, fresh water but some children came up with a great idea of adding salt and ice. Eventually, we [...]

Izzy the Ice-cube came to visit Class 2 from the South Pole today!

We needed to learn quickly how to protect her from the heat. We chose materials to wrap her in and created a fair test. We then made predictions about which one would be the winner. The materials were a woolly blanket, bubble wrap and tin foil. Which one do you think will be the winner…?   Everyone was surprised including [...]

Resilient Heroes – running in hail?!

This weekend our cross country team raced in the final meet of the year and the soggy and exposed course around Northam Burrows. Two words sum them up.  Resilient Heroes.  The boys ran in freezing hail and wind barely keeping their shoes on in the mud and through the trenches.  The girls were slightly luckier as the sun peeked out [...]

The state of this stable…!

I bet if Mary and Joseph had managed to get a room, the Inn would've cleared up before they arrived? They'll have to put up with a bit off a mess tonight. (Mike, where's your Hoover?)

We lost the debate (but that’s a good thing!)

Following on from our previous post, the debate went really badly and we lost... but then we were arguing in the position of a Packaging Manager and actually, didn't believe in what we had to put forward! Backtrack... Our Eco Council went to the Met Office building today to take part in the first ever SAS Plastic Free Conference. SAS' [...]

Eco Council; debating and wishing we lose!

Our Eco Council has been invited by Surfers Against Sewage to take part in a debate on Tuesday, one that's going to be extremely challenging... we're playing the part of a Packaging Manufacture and we're supporting the motion that the plastic free programme should be put on pause for another 20 years! This caused some confusion in our brief discussion [...]
