Bug Hotel
10 July 2012

Last Friday children in class 2 worked with Jackie Kidd to make an amazing bug hotel in the Glebe field. They have used lots of wood, bark and sticks to create a lovely environment for lots of minibeasts and bugs to move into.[pe2-gallery album=”aHR0cDovL3BpY2FzYXdlYi5nb29nbGUuY29tL2RhdGEvZmVlZC9iYXNlL3VzZXIvMTA0MjczNjc5OTAyOTg2MjgyNzMwL2FsYnVtaWQvNTc2MzQ4NTE0MzA0MDE2OTg1Nz9hbHQ9cnNzJmFtcDtobD1lbl9VUyZraW5kPXBob3Rv”]

Stunt Cyclist Visit
29 June 2012

Stunt Cyclist Andrei Burton came to visit the school. He perfomed some amazing tricks in the village hall as it was too wet to be outside. Miss Preston has not been the same since being part of a stunt!

15 June 2012

Year 6 visited Beam House the week before half term where they all tried out a huge variety of
activities. Some of the activities were very challenging but they showed real team spirit and support for each other as they faced their fears.

Morwellham Quay
25 May 2012

Class 2 visited Morwellham Quay to find out what life was like in Victorian times. We visited a school room and wrote on slates. Then went down into a copper mine – it was very cold and dark. Then we had fun dresing up in Victorian costume although it was incredibly hot!! Our last visit was to a worker’s cottage where we were able to see what household life was like and saw lots of artefacts from Victorian times.

19 April 2012

Class 2 have been busy planting sweetpeas to grow around and up the willow tree. They were planted out at the end of last term so we are hoping for a lovely splash of colour over in the Glebe field in a few weeks.

Many thanks to Mrs Thomas and the other Mum’s who have helped us with this project.

Russian Life
30 March 2012

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.
