Older children paired up with younger children and enjoyed the sunshine in an end of term Easter Egg hunt before our Easter church service.
To finish our Russian topic, Class 3 have had the privilege of a Russian visitor. Maxim came and spoke to the class all about Russian life, and the children asked lots of really interesting questions. We thought about school life, lifestyle and the politics of Russia. Although it was tricky, we even learnt to count to ten in Russian. Class 3 would like to say a huge thank you to Maxim for giving up his time to tell us all about Russia.
This week, class 3 have been doing some Russian cooking. We made a berry cake and a beetroot, apple and creme fraiche salad.
Class 2 have been busy designing and building moving robots from junk materials. They used levers and pneumatic systems to help move parts of their models and then fixed electrical circuits with light bulbs into their robots. The children set up their robots to show other children and their parents.
On Thursday 1st of March Class 3 went to see an orchestra rehearsal before their performance. They played Jupiter the Bringer of Jollity and Mars the Bringer of War. These pieces are from The Planets, composed by Gustav Holst. We also got to listen to Nimrod from The Enigma Variations which was by Edward Elgar.
We want to thank EMG Symphony Orchestra for giving us the chance to play some of the instruments and sit within the orchestra. As we are learning classical music in class, listening to an orchestra really helped us learn.
Many thanks to Nigel Cheffers-Heard (photographer for EMG Symphony Orchestra) for taking the phtographs.

Year 6 visited Exmouth Community College on two occasions for a science workshop. They learned all about two types of electrical circuits, a series circuit and a parallel circuit. They had great fun and all worked enthusiastically as budding scientists!
The whole school dressed up as nursery rhyme characters for world book day. Can you guess who we are?
