Spring Term

In January we were lucky to have a second visit from Wonderstruck. They came to school and treated the children to a morning of science, this was based on the solar system.

 The children learned about the order of the planets and were challenged with the task of making motorised planet-exploring vehicles without wheels which were then tested on ramps.

They also watched an exciting demonstration about meteors. We would like to thank the PTFA for funding the visit.

Later the same day, the whole school took part in a STEM afternoon. The children have been taking part in a competition - to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - which is based across the schools within North Devon and the surrounding areas. The competition involved seeing which team could build the tallest tower (that stands on its own) and which team could build a strong enough tower to hold an egg for as long as possible.

Each team worked very welltogether ensuring that everyone's skills were used whether  they weredesigning, discussing or putting the tower together. We are now eagerlyawaiting the results to find out which schools won this challenging butexciting competition.

Nativity Play

On 9th December the children performed the Christmas play “A Miracle in Town” to family and friends. It was a lovely performance, the children excelled themselves, nobody forgot their lines or positions and the singing was beautiful. Well done to the whole cast. Also a big thank you to the PTFA for providing the refreshments (£27.18 was collected in donations for the NSPCC, our Charity this year) and to everyone who helped with learning lines and making the costumes.

Harvest Festival

On Wednesday 28th September we held the school’s Harvest Festival service at St Mary’s Church.The children read poems and the congregation sang the hymns which had been selected by class 2. All the children had created some artwork to decorate the window in the children’s area of the church. Thank you for all your kind gifts and donations which were displayed as the school logo rainbow and will be passed on to the Food Bank.
