Thank you to everyone who came along to sports day last week to support the children. Despite the weather, the children enjoyed the day and the opportunity to showcase their sporting prowess. The summer fayre was also a great success raising a fantastic £553. This was made possible by parent donations and the hard work of the PTA, to whom we also offer our thanks.
Year 5 & 6 took part in a morning of orienteering at Great Potheridge House in Merton. Thank you to Encompass training for providing this.
Children have enjoyed activities in the church to explore the meaning of Pentacost.
Across the school children have been focusing on different textile techniques. Thank you to Jane Moore who spent a day assembling the children's pieces which will be made into a wall hanging.
Hedgehogs have been using their geography field skills to identify human and physical features in Beaford village.
The Foundation Stage Unit visited Rosemoor and enjoyed taking part in a workshop about the 5 senses.
Children have painted hot air balloons and made the baskets by weaving paper.
All children in the school enjoyed the visiting planetarium where they explored our solar system.
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'.
Otters have made models to represent day and night. They used motors to make the Earth rotate.
Children have been learning about Chinese New Year including making masks and tasting noodles.
Children have enjoyed learning about Robots and Rockets this week.
Thank you to Wonderstruck who provided a science workshop making speakers out of 'junk' and testing how well they worked.
Owls: Think about the next stage of your stop motion animations - how might you present this? Write some notes/draw some images to present to your group next week.
Otters: Make a list of the human and physical features where you live
Hedgehogs: If possible, collect and bring in a 2 litre plastic bottle for our science investigation
