Well done to all the children who took part on our Sports Day. All the children tried their hardest and displayed our values in action. Well done to Pipistrelle House who were the overall winners!
Class 3 went to Exmouth beach to learn about beach safety with the local lifeguards. The children learnt about the different types of flags and what to do if they or someone they know gets into danger at the beach. They also got to play games to help them learn about what to do in the sea. It was a fantastic afternoon!
A busy fun packed day for our Year 5’s started with a maths trail at Exmouth Community College where all areas of maths were challenged, solving questions and problems as a hunt for clues to solve the chain and complete the trail.
After that, a short walk to Phea Park for a picnic lunch and then a walk to beach. A quick pit stop for ice cream and fun on the beach before beach football supported by Exeter City Footballers. Year 5 were up against other local Exmouth schools and played well with great persistence and team effort, playing 5 games in all with 2 wins, 2 lose and a draw. Well done Woodbury Salterton!
Our first session this term with Class One and a warm welcome to our Nursery children who joined us for the first time. Lots has changed since we were there in the winter and class one have been exploring to find out. The children were all great nature detectives and busy looking and upturning logs and tyres, revealing lots of exciting mini beasts and bugs. They also discovered our three new bat boxes, which were kindly donated by Wild Woodbury and made by the year 6’s. We are all very pleased to have our very own compost loo too – many thanks to Woodbury Council. Of course, our session finished with marshmallows around the fire.
Well done to the children who were either our Stars of the Week, completed their Commendation Cards or received Values in Action certificates. What role models you all are!
Class 3 had great fun recreating scenes of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole in the Crimean War. They showed that female nurses were not initially wanted, but how they made a fantastic contribution to cleanliness and care in the war. Well done Class 3 – great acting and improvised costumes!
As part of our topic work on healthy eating the children in classes 1 and 2 went to visit Riverford Farm in South Devon. The children had a walk around some of the fields to see how they watered the crops and were able to taste some of the vegetables we saw growing. Here’s what some of the children thought:
Finlay – It was really good – I found out I liked the celery
Imogen – I liked Riverford Farm. I tasted basil and it was nice.
Faith – I liked it when the water squirted out onto the field.
Lucas – In the poly tunnel she turned on the watering system. We all got wet.
Casey – I liked walking around and looking at all the food.
Skyla – Penny told us to eat 5 vegetables every day so we would be healthy.
Class 1 have really enjoyed their swimming lessons at Exmouth pool this term. They have all gained confidence in the water and have learned some basic stroke techniques. Some have been able to take their first few swimming strokes unaided.
Great behaviour and wonderful good manners with the swimming instructors and coach drivers. A real credit to the school – Class 1 you are a real credit to the school!
In preparation for our trip to Riverford Farm, the children in class 1 had fun identifying different vegetables. They then helped to make some humous and chopped up some vegetables to dunk in the humous. There were plenty of clean plates and all agreed that the best part was tasting it all. Here’s what some of the children thought:
Joff – The humous is super yummy
Skyla – I’m going to taste everything on my plate
Casey – It’s brilliant
Finlay – It’s all delicious
