February 9th, 2018

Mortehoe class were sad to see their student teacher Mr Barnard leave this week but he has left them with some great memories. The children have been taking part in a science project about Forces and have been making balloon buggies and rockets!  Great fun and great learning all at the same time.

Fantastic Forest School Bird Feeders!

February 7th, 2018

Forest School Day 1 has gone really well. It started with Mortehoe class making  some bird feeders using oranges, lard and bird seed. They all worked really well together and even brought some of their grown -ups along to help! After they had completed their feeders, they went bird watching around the school grounds and were surprised at how many they managed to spot!
Following that the Reception Class came out for their first ever Forest School session. They listened really carefully to the instructions, behaved beautifully around the campfire and succeeded at making bird feeders from pine cones, lard and bird seed. Finally, Westward Ho! class came out to enjoy the early afternoon sunshine. The children all squeezed and moulded the lard until it was super soft and easy to mould into the pine cone – they had very dirty hands but enjoyed cleaning them with water heated up on the camp fire. Each group enjoyed finishing their session with a hot chocolate.  Hopefully the sun will stay out for tomorrows sessions.

Fantastic fun had by all at the Devon Schools' Ability Games

February 5th, 2018

Last week a group of children got to attend the Devon Schools’ Ability Games where they had a brilliant day taking part in wheelchair basket ball, lazer shooting, fencing, and the primary school festival. The children gave every single event 110% effort and there were smiles all around. As well as taking part in the events themselves, the children watched the opening ceremony where they saw professional BMX biker Matti Hemmings and professional Irish dancer and power lifter Nikki Carter perform.  As the day went on the children manged to meet the professional athletes too!

Book at Bedtime

February 3rd, 2018

On Tuesday lots of children returned to school in their pyjamas. They settled down in the darkened reading room and enjoyed  a range of  entertaining  stories.

Mr Barnard read ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’ by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

Mrs Walters read ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker Rees

Miss Marshall read ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ by  Gareth Edwards and Hannah Shaw

Mrs Roome read – ‘Whatever Next’ by Jill Murphy

Ms Hayles read ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury

The children stopped for a biscuit and a hot chocolate half way through the stories. It was lovely to see Nursery and Reception children, mums, dads, grandparents and older brothers and sisters too.

The next day  parents  and children commented on how much they had enjoyed the evening!

This week in Twinkle Toes

February 2nd, 2018

This week we have all enjoyed exploring paint. Some of us used the circles to make different prints. We looked at the big and little circles we had made. Lots of us preferred to use our hands to feel the paint and rub it across the paper. We were very interested in how our hands had changed colour!

Shoe Box Appeal- Where did they go in the world?

January 28th, 2018

Thank you so much for the generosity for the shoebox appeal that we had before Christmas. We managed to send 20 boxes and we have just received news that they went to children in Albania.  A special mention to Holy Trinity Chruch who provide the base where they are sent from. The School Council enjoyed delivering them to the church on behalf of the rest of the school. 

Thank you for all your support for this project.
