A massive well done to our Stars of the Week and all those children who have completed commendation cards this week!
Years 4 and 5 have been working with a coach form Exeter City in the Community to develop their football skills and to learn about the importance of exercise and nutrition. Today they completed their course and received congratulations certificates.

A massive well done to all of our Stars of the Week and those children who completed commendation cards – Well done!
The School Ethos Council also told the school about the prayer bench in the playground and how we can use the prayer ribbons if we would like to pray to God about something or if we would just like to show we are thinking about something important to us.
Class 3 have been looking at how another culture represents miniature figurines. We took inspiration from Guatemalan worry dolls to design our own ‘Mini Me’ figures. So far, we have thought about different textures and will be using a variety of textures to embellish our figures.
We used templates as patterns for cutting around and then stitched our fabric pieces together. We used wadding to fill our figures.
We look forward to making them look unique to us and using them to help share our worries.
The whole school have worked together to create beautiful artwork for our playground based upon our school vision of “Inspiring One Another to Live Life in all its Fullness.” Our way to remember and articulate our school vision is through the values of Love, Inspiration, Fellowship and Encouragement, of which the initial letters spell out the word LIFE.
Each pupil produced a piece of artwork which was then put together and sent to the printers. The result is now a colourful, permanent display in our playground to inspire us all.
Class Two are thinking about how festivals and family life show what really matters to Jews. In today’s RE lesson, they learnt about the Jewish festival of Rosh Hashanah. As part of the lesson they tasted apples dipped in honey (a food which is eaten by Jews during Rosh Hashanah) and they were able to taste how sweet the foods were and how this food symbolises the ultra-sweet year that Jews hope G-d will give them.
In Class Two’s science lessons they have been finding out how fossils form. To recreate this process, Class Two have placed jellied sweets between layers of bread which represent a creature that has died and fallen on the sand (white bread) and then been buried under layers of sediment (brown and granary bread.) We have placed heavy books and a stone on top, to apply the pressure that the sediment would have applied to the creature buried underneath it. We now need to wait a few days to see what happens to the sweets. In the meantime, we have been predicting what we think will happen. Watch this space to find out…
