Once again Croyde class have had the most amazing day out. We visited Ilfracombe in search of Captain Morphus’s lost cloak and learnt so much along the way. First, we stepped on board the Ilfracombe Princess which is a fantastic boat that took us all around the coastline. We learnt all about navigational ships, coasteering and even how to spot lobster pots. For many of us, it was our first time on a boat and it was the best experience.
However, no cloak had been found. Next, we walked to Tunnels beaches via Capstone Island. It was a breezy walk but it had the most amazing views. Once at Tunnels, we explored the rock pools, built tall towers and enjoyed a lovely picnic on the beach. We talked about all the reasons to visit Ilfracombe and finished our day with a delicious Hockings ice cream.
Then the most amazing thing happened! We took shelter from the sun in the town’s bandstand and found the mysterious cloak.
Finally, we are ready to reunite with Captain Morphus. All year we have been working to earn sea treasures in our learning journey.
This is the perfect end to a fantastic year.

The rain held off, we worked together to build sculptures and dig holes, had a picnic on the beach and even found time for some beach volleyball. Here are some of the photos from our fantastic day.

In our class this week we have been learning all about the Royal Family, especially Prince Harry in preparation for his wedding. We have been writing letters, designing invitations, making fact sheets and even designing some hats for the Queen as well as writing a persuasive sales pitch to get her to buy our hat. We have also been finding out about weddings in different religions. Today in class, to celebrate the wedding, we made cheese and cucumber sandwiches, designed commemorative mugs, made bunting and crown party hats and had a indoor garden party to celebrate the Royal wedding.
