Thank you to Devon Air Ambulance volunteers Marilyn and Alan who led a very informative assembly for the school today. One year 4 said afterwards 'I learnt lots! I learnt that in an emergency like breaking a leg near a cliff the air ambulance would get there much quicker than a land ambulance'.

Home Learning 

Owls: Think about the structure and arrangement of our class composition - if you were going to structure it, what would you do? Write down the order and think about if they would be anything you would add.

Otters:   Write about the planetarium that came to visit. You could write about it as a newspaper report, a diary entry, a leaflet, or something different.

Hedgehogs:  Find and share a poem with someone at home to celebrate World Poetry Day.
