Class 2 have been learning about Vikings. In art they have been looking at Viking patterns and have printed repeating patterns using printing blocks that they designed.

They have also made Viking helmets and look very fierce when wearing them.

Anti-bullying Week
27 November 2012

Last week was anti-bullying week and to mark it, our Friendly Faces team ran a whole school assembly to introduce themselves and explain what type of things they will be involved with.  Please look at the great powerpoint they created and presented to the rest of the school.

Wednesday was also ‘Compliment Day’, the children really enjoyed giving compliments to other members of the school community.  It really helped us to remember how the little things we say to each other, make a huge difference!

South Devon Railway
26 October 2012

On Wednesday 24th Class 3 enjoyed a trip to the South Devon Steam Railway and Totnes Rare Breeds Farm as part of their topic on World War Two. All the children ( and staff) dressed in war time costumes and enjoyed a visit to the railway museum and then a ride on the steam train taking in the beautiful scenery of the River Dart.

The children were able to feed and handle animals at the farm and then returned to Buckfastleigh Station on the Steam train.

We were very grateful to staff at both sites for some informative talks and the chance to hear more about what life would have been like for children during the war.
We received comments from staff at both sites and the coach driver about the impeccable behaviour of the children and how wonderful it was to see them all in costume. One said ‘This is best group we have had this year. The children have listened well and asked and answered some interesting questions. They are all polite and incredibly well behaved. We have never had a group like them.’

Well done class 3.

Pennywell Farm
26 October 2012

On  22nd October Class One visited Pennywell Farm. We had great fun and learnt lots about the animals there.

First we fed the sheep, milked the goat and stroked the donkeys. Then we saw the geese, fed the deer and went for train ride. After lunch we cuddled guinea pigs, rabbits, ducklings, chicks, piglets…but not the hedgehog!   After that we said hello to the shire horses, the alpacas and Dancer the reindeer and collected the eggs from the hens.  Finally we went on a tractor ride and saw the cows, the boar and watched the ducks being let out of the shed.    What a fantastic day!

Children in years three and four learned about about cycling safety and families were rewarded with stickers for choosing a healthy way to travel to school.

Thank you to Mrs Edwards and PCSO Donna Baker for organising the week and to parents and children who still choosing healthy ways of travelling to keep the area around the school car free.

Baby Chickens and Guinea Fowl
2 October 2012

On Monday 1st October, William’s dad brought in to class some baby chickens and guinea fowl for us to see. We were excited to see how they would react to us. They made lots of funny noises and walked around our room. Class 2 would like to thank Mr Thomas for coming in to see us.

28 September 2012

Class 2 were lucky enough to be visited by Mr Wilton-Davies who came to talk about his experiences of exploring and climbing mountains. He showed us some of the equipment you might need to take with you and some of the clothes you would need to wear. We had great fun trying some of the items on. Class 2 would like to thank Mr Wilton-Davies for giving up his time to talk to us. We certainly learned a lot about mountain exploration.

Potted Sports
10 July 2012

On Friday 6th July children in Years 1 and 2 went to Exmouth Tennis Centre for Potted Sports. The young leaders from the PE department at Exmouth Community College had arranged some really exciting activities which the children were able to have a go at. We were very hot and tired by the end but had great fun.[pe2-gallery album=”aHR0cDovL3BpY2FzYXdlYi5nb29nbGUuY29tL2RhdGEvZmVlZC9iYXNlL3VzZXIvMTA0MjczNjc5OTAyOTg2MjgyNzMwL2FsYnVtaWQvNTc2MzQ4NzU5NDkwOTE0NDU3Nz9hbHQ9cnNzJmFtcDtobD1lbl9VUyZraW5kPXBob3Rv”]
