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 [...]

Crib On The Green…

So Mary and Joseph were at church this morning, and so were a lot of the community, as well as some coffee and cake too.  I'm sure Mary just wanted a bit of breathing space in her condition, bless her, but after a few chocolate brownies and a bit of a give-away of the story sung by the school chidren, [...]

Single-Use Prayers? Never!

That tough question about whether to laminate!? Written by children this week, these prayers will be displayed on the Crib, on the Green, on Sunday. They're going to need to be weather proof so the community can come and read them and pray about their what they say. Do come along as it's always a lovely community service... and our [...]

Class 2 science…

A quick thought to senses, during the Autumn, and the things that you can; Taste, Smell, See, Hear, and Feel ...at this time of the year. No, not hot sun on your backs or the smell of BBQs, but blowing wind, crunchy leaves and warm hot chocolate! And then also to food chains. What does, 'being at the top' mean? [...]

Eco Council / Cimate Council minutes…

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 [...]
