Our Learning

Habitats
6 December 2013

On the 3rd of October, Mrs Beer’s son Jamie came into class 3 and talked about habitats. We learned about organisms, cockroaches and bearded dragons.

The teachers and their teachers (Miss Burrows and Miss Healey) learned lots! We even had the opportunity to touch bearded dragons!

Class 3 does Strictly Come Dancing!
6 December 2013

Children in class 3 were treated to jive dancing lessons this week and have learned lots of fantastic dance moves. Mr and Mrs Squire kindly gave up their time to teach class 3 a jive dance. The children chose a dance partner and after a few giggles they soon began to pick up the tricky dance steps. Mr and Mrs Squire took us through the dance, step by step and after only 2 lessons all of the children were dancing the whole routine to music. It was great fun and it has inspired the children to make their own dances to be performed and judged at our Strictly Come Dancing final in the last week of term! We would like to thank Mr and Mrs Squire for their expert help and we really don’t know where you get your energy from!

We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures and look out for further photos of the final!

As we await the upcoming final remember to ‘KEEP DANCING!’

Class 4 Tudor trip
5 December 2013

Children in class 4 were treated to a morning at St Nicholas Priory in Exeter where they got to dress up as Tudor children and were cordially invited to meet Master Nicholas Hurst who resides at the Priory. They visited his parlour where they got to play a gambling game of shuffleboard before going to the kitchen to make butter or marchpane (marzipan) using the Tudor kitchen utensils. After that they visited Sir Nicholas’ chamber where they could dress in his many fine clothes and read the inventory of his household. Our morning ended with a fine Tudor banquet of crusty bread rolls and oatmeal biscuits which were spread with the butter or marchpane that the children had made earlier. Year 6 had to memorise a long and tricky grace to say before they ate and had to impress Sir Nicholas with their table manners of which they all did.

After a busy morning the children walked to Exeter Museum to explore the different exhibits and in particular look at the Tudor Exhibition. All of the children were very well behaved and enjoyed their active Tudor learning day. We hope you enjoy looking at the photographs of our day.

Love Food Hate Waste
19 November 2013

On Thursday 14th November, Class 3 participated in a workshop all about food! We investigated the journey food takes to reach our plates (learning about the difference between ‘use by’ and ‘best before’ dates and the locations of different countries along the way), analyzed how each of the ingredients of spaghetti bolognese reaches our plates and explored the environmental impacts of throwing food away. It was an enjoyable, thought-provoking day. We will be sharing our learning with the rest of the schoolat an assembly soon!

Cathedral Concert
17 November 2013

On Saturday children from classes 3 and 4 performed alongside other schools in a performance at Exeter Cathedral. We are extremely proud of the children who performed beautifully and behaved impeccably.

Thank you to Mrs Sommers and Miss Burrows who led rehearsals and accompanied the children on Saturday, with Mrs Sommers making her debut as conductor at the cathedral!

Thank you also to the many parents who attended to give their support.

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.
