Gliddon and Squire Cross Country League… Blows Out in Style….

The last event in the 2019/20 league saw a reduced team of Kitty, Elfini and Presley battle windy and very muddy conditions at West Buckland School to complete their final cross country run of the league.  They all battled well despite some injuries (Kitty) and a lot of mud.  At the end of the run the annual prize giving saw [...]

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 [...]

Swimming Challenges…

A wonderful start to the week with lots of children setting themselves swimming challenges - how much or how far can they swim given an hour in the pool? Some children only challenged themselves to a small distance but this doesn't matter a jot - I was fortunate enough to follow one of these children doing only 4 lengths and [...]

Class 3 catch the train to Exeter museum…

Last Wednesday class 3 had an exciting day out when we caught the train to Exeter museum to take part in a series of workshops on our topic of Ancient Egypt. We learnt about the animals of Ancient Egypt, met the museum's own mummy Shep-an-Mut, played a traditional Ancient Egyptian game and even learnt how to mummify! We also had [...]

Gliddon and Squire X Country League Round 5 – aka ‘The MUDDY one’

Georgeham's team of intrepid cross country runners were reduced in size but not in gusto this weekend with Martha, Jet and Presley flying the flag for the school team in the U11 and U9 races.  The event was the first of the year and the 5th in the season and took place at Shebbear College (in the middle of nowhere [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

BLC Swimming Gala…

Well done to all our swimmers this morning! Terrific start to the week, and my voice may now be shattered by all that shouting! Thanks to Paul Trueman for helping out. (And I know he was shouting more than I was!)
