Coldharbour Mill
7 November 2013

Class 3 were put through their Victorian paces on our recent trip to Coldharbour Mill. We stepped back in time to learn, through drama, about what working life was like for children in the Victorian era. It was a rich and very real learning experience comparing historical values to our own. There was quite a big sigh of relief when we escaped back to school! The Victorians were VERY strict. We also got to see the woolen mill machinery at work. To see the journey of wool from sheep to shop come and look at the display on the staircase.

East Devon School Leagues Football Finals
24 May 2013

On Tuesday Mrs  Sommers took our football team to the East Devon School Leagues Football Finals tournament in Otterton. The team did extremely well, in getting to the final. It was a very close match which they lost by a very small margin, on penalties. As usual all children represented the school excellently with their impeccable behaviour and support for fellow teams. Particular thanks go to Rhys, who demonstrated strong leadership skills in his role as captain, and to Tracey Neath for the fantastic support she gave to Mrs Sommers and the team.
