George's Marvellous Medicine
12 December 2014

Class 4 had a fabulous time at the Northcott theatre on Wednesday when they went to see George’s Marvellous Medicine. We all laughed all the way through but especially when Grandma grew so big that she burst through the roof! A big thank you to Mrs Broomby, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Taylor who helped keep our costs down by transporting the class to the theatre.

Cl4 Coding

Class 4 have been completing their hour of code. Sam and Max made sequences of code and were using loops and repetition to send angry bird characters around a maze. They had to de bug their code along to way to improve the programming! Well done boys!

Cross Country Race
27 November 2014

Well done to the year 3 & 4 girls who showed true team spirit and sportsmanship in the cross country race at Bicton college last week.
They came 5th out of 13 schools and although they didn’t qualify for the Devon trials, they were hugely congratulated for their efforts.

Digital Leaders
25 November 2014

The digital leaders gave their first assembly to classes 1,2 and 4 today about Internet safety. They worked as a team to produce an interactive presentation with quiz prizes giving a strong message about staying safe online. We are very proud of them and they are now being booked by class 2 to demonstrate using the Telligami app on the iPads. Upon Evie’s return the digital leaders will present their assembly to class 3 and will be setting up a coding club! Well done to Jacob, Libby, Evie, Amelia and Arabella.

My personal tribute
16 November 2014

Almost every family has some personal connections with the Great War, and during my visit to the Menin Gate, I was particularly proud to be wearing my great grandfather’s medals and to reflect on his own personal sacrifice during WW1.

My great grandfather, Private Claude Riddle, enlisted at the age of 40 years old, having failed to enlist in the Canadian Army because of his age, he returned home, joined the Gloucester Regiment and served for 2 years and 4 days until he was injured, losing a leg to gas gangrene and an arm to a shrapnel wound.

Class 4 Discover Algebra
11 November 2014

Class 4 have been using cuisenaire rods to discover algebra. They have made equations to compare rods such a=n+w or w =1/10 of a. They still have more discoveries to find and will be developing their findings into further algebraic learning.

Bon Appétit Classe 4!
21 October 2014

On Friday 17th October, Class 4 put their French speaking skills into action. The classroom was transformed into a French Café and a delicious French breakfast was on the menu – including a particularly appetising camembert and a goat’s cheese!
The children had previously made phrase books to help them along, and they enjoyed taking turns as waiters and customers. Customers enjoyed croissants, pains au chocolat, brioches, petits gateaux, chocolat chaud and, of course, le fromage! Top marks to Sebastian and Brody in the cheese department – both managed a second piece!

Emily said, “We had an amazing French feast and we tried lots of yummy foods.” Vanessa said, “It was all delicious, except the cheese!”
Libby agreed, saying, “We had lots of yummy foods. Only one person liked the cheese! But it was a great feast.”
Jacob said, “Mrs Turner hosted a great feast with a variety of French foods. We didn’t like the cheese much though, except Sebastian – he loved it!”
