Even Save The Spiders!

We were stormed by a huge swarm of horribly, large flies at lunchtime, and it inspired some to take drastic action! [Post Edit (thanks Matt) https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/wildlife-explorer/invertebrates/flies/st-marks-fly] Some jumped on, poked and splatted them, others started a chant to save them. Isla even wrote a persuasive poster - Save The Bugs... (and even save the spiders!) Save The Insects poster.pdfDownload

Remembrance Tree…

This morning, several children from each school in the Braunton Learning Cooperative Trust went to the small green in the centre of Braunton to plant a tree and dedicate it to Captain Sir Tom Moore. The BLC Trust thought that this inspirational man and the duties he'd carried over his 99 years, represented so much of our own individual schools' [...]

Welcome back!

Everything's been so busy on our return - we wanted to blog yesterday but we've just had so much to do! Our return has of course been made so much more pleasant with the weather.  We were talking in our (two) staffrooms that the children have settled in really well, and have really enjoyed playing on the field with their [...]

EYFS Forest Village, part3.

It seems like ages since we've been in the Forest Village area to do any work, and even though we've most probably done parts 3, 4, and part 5 already, today seemed like the first time we've been back since we had the builders in. Since last summer, we've had a 20 foot square canopy erected over the artificial turf [...]

Max’s Big Camp Out – Sat 27th March

Max is a year 6 pupil at Caen Primary, and one I'm of really inspired by!  His friend told to him to have an adventure and wow, he did!! I'm inspired, because Max has been camping out in a tent in his back garden since the first pandemic Lockdown back in March 2020 all to support his friend and raise [...]

Upcycling for our Eco Cabin!

A lovely, sunny afternoon, so it was one more small step (literally - prepping the step!) for the Eco Cabin. The framework won't take long at all now, and the girls who designed it before Lockdown back in December will be really happy to see it develop further! We've plans for some more tasks around our grounds, and maybe a [...]

DIY (with lots of help!)

It was going to be a DIY and tidying up kind of day, but I ended up having lots of help! There was an awful lot of wood left over after the installation of the EYFS canopy and some of the year 5 and 6 children had thought about making an eco cabin out of it... so that's how it [...]

Crib On The Green…

Coming up to Christmas, we won't be able to gather and walk around the village to collect our Nativity Characters as in previous years. But Christmas will still happen, even if very differently, and we want to give this Nativity to our community to brighten up all our Christmases! It always thrills me, as Rector, how creative our families are [...]

New and shiny things!!

It's so lovely when the sun's out and the children get to enjoy our outside environment fully. I think we've blogged a photo of the New Crinkle Crags Climber?  The photo that above shows last year's Yr6 who managed to get a good two weeks' worth of playing on it before they left us for the summer.  The Climber replaces [...]
