Essex Dance…

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 [...]

Sports Challenges…

Today was our mini sports' day... called Sports Challenge Day. Based on Athletic Union standards, distances and timings, Yr2 and older children challenged their personal results to try to beat or improve upon them. A great day! Remember sun cream and water for Thursday please.

Shuffle Up Day…

Some of our children moved up a classroom this afternoon, and some became 'the professionals' in the room, welcoming the newer children in to their classroom. We had teamwork going on, communication and rules being spoken about, laying down children's expectations of us (as well as ours of them), some playing together and also finding out about each others strengths, [...]

ANZAC Bake Off in Classes 1 and 2

Classes One and Two had a great day making ANZAC Biscuits as part of our Australian Topic. These biscuits were originally sent out to the New Zealand and Australian troops in Gallipoli. They are really delicious and we hope you enjoy them at home!

Fire Safety Talk for Year 1 and 2

The Fire Brigade came to give a talk to Year 1 and 2 today. Your child should have a really good idea of what the service does and how to keep safe. Stop, drop and roll!

Year 1 and 2 Tennis Festival

Year 1 and 2 were put through their tennis paces today at Tarka Tennis Centre in Barnstaple. The children were all brilliant and listened so well to the coaches. Braunton Academy lent a helping hand with some of their children to support us. Wimbledon here we come!

Class 1 and 2 Materials Workshop

In the afternoon they turned into mini beasts and learnt all about composting. We learnt the different types of food we can (and cannot) put into [...]
