If you are interested in joining, please see Mrs Robinson in year 3/4 for a permission form.

We have been to the beach today along with some special guests from Barricane class. We made some fantastic creatures out of sand which we will be using as the main characters in our story writing. 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.

We all had an amazing day out at Croyde beach. We traveled on the local double Decker bus. It was so easy to get there. We caught the number 21 and got there really quick.
Once we got to the beach, we started looking for objects to use for our sand sculptures. These items had been washed up onto the shore, by the sea.
Everyone got to make a an animal sand sculpture that we will use for stories when we get back to school. They made turtles, dogs, butterflies and lots of different creatures using everything from the beach.
We then had a lovely picnic next to the life guard hut and even got to talk to one of the lifeguards. He checked that we knew all about the flags so we could all stay safe.
After lunch we walked across the whole of Croyde beach and made our way to the village. We have been learning all about the village of Croyde in geography with Miss Knapper.
It was a fantastic day out and we all worked as a team. A lady on the bus told us that she was really impressed with our behavior and we really enjoyed being altogether. We would all love to go again soon.
