Our Learning

Class 2 Job Centre
21 January 2016

Class 2 polished up their job application skills on Monday, when they applied to the Woodbury Salterton Job Centre for positions in the classroom.

Alex’s application said that he would like to be ‘register monitor’ because he is fit from all his sports training, which will help him to go up and down the stairs to the office.

Daisy applied for the position of ‘pencil pot monitor’ because she likes organising things and keeping the classroom tidy.

The most popular position was laptop monitor, even though that doesn’t mean that you get to play computer games all day!

Well done, Class 2! You were all very good candidates for our classroom jobs, and I hope that you are all happy in your new roles for the term.

Staying Safe Sessions
14 January 2016

All classes had a very informative visit from Devon Fire and Rescue. The children learnt lots of important safety tips not only about fire but also about other emergency services.

Libby – I was amazed to hear a fire fighter had rescued a horse from a swimming pool.

Bethany – I learnt that it is really important to have smoke alarms in your house and check them regularly.

Sam – If there is a fire in your house you must get out, stay out and then call 999.

James – You must not go back into your house to get your pets as the Fire fighters will go back in to rescue them.

Alani – It was fun and really useful to act out making and receiving emergency calls.

Remembrance Service

Years 5 and 6 led our remembrance service today, telling the rest of the school all about the reasons we mark this day. We learned about the significance of the colours in the poppy and why they grew so easily in Flanders Field. They led our 2 minutes silence and then Tilly explained how she made her beautiful ceramic poppies for her home learning. Mrs Sommers was very proud of her class as they truly showed our school value of respect today.

Class 3 enjoyed eating bread and honey with the honey that we were given from Quince Honey Farm on our trip to Farmwise. It was delicious! Yum yum!

Class 2 on the Farm
22 October 2015

Last Thursday Class 2 spent a day at West Town Farm in Ide. We had amazing weather andspent the entire day outdoors. We picked apples, made apple juice, dug soil, rolled in hay bales, sang songs in the barn, saw the animals (including a calf called Denis), picked and chopped vegetables and cooked pumpkin soup over the campfire. We even fed the gorgeous spotty brown pigs with apples and acorns! Phew – we never stopped! What a wonderful day, with lots of opportunities to think about our Being Alive! topic and how we fit in with all of the other plants and animals in the world.
