Class 1 experienced virtual reality in Science this week. Children wore ‘virtual t-shirts’ to explore their insides!
The children were fascinated looking for their gallbladder and pancreas hidden underneath their liver and stomach. They were also able to look inside their small intestine and see the journey that our food travels.
Year 3,4,5 and 6 pupils were lucky enough to experience a virtual reality workshop last week. The workshop included Class 1 visiting mountains and volcanoes around the world and Class 2 children exploring a range of famous landmarks in London and across the UK. This innovative approach to learning took the children on a whistle-stop tour of places around the globe and allowed them to experience total surround viewing of key sites.
Class 1 used the experience to inspire some fabulous short story writing about a volcano erupting.
Powderham House (yellow) have won the overall trophy for most house points over the year.
Our Year 6 children received the trophy on behalf of their house team.
Year 6 delighted staff, pupils and parents with their very special version of ‘Carpool Karaoke’.
They had some special guests in attendance including members of the Royal family and the Prime Minister!
Pupils and Staff performed the musical Beauty and the Beast at the Langstone Cliff Hotel this week.
It was a brilliant show, with Year 6 students taking the lead.
Well done to all who supported this event and for making the evening so amazing!
Class 1 have just returned from an amazing three day fun-packed residential to London. They visited: Harry Potter World, the Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Legoland and also went to see Aladdin in the West End.
Class 1 have been studying ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ so everyone really enjoyed walking through 4, Privet Drive and seeing the flying motorbike. All the children wore a cloak and took a ride on a broomstick, they also had a lesson in how to use a magic wand! (more…)
On Friday, children in Class 1 were able to go to Powderham Castle to watch a special performance by the Meridies Piano Trio.
We were invited to the prestigious James Wyatt music room to listen to an hour long performance covering pieces by Debussy and Haydn, and even a world exclusive composition! (more…)
The children at Cockwood had a super time at their recent Taiko drumming workshop, where the children had a wonderful time playing big Japanese drums and learning new rhythms.
Hannah- Jasmine from Taiko Journey came in for the day and conducted exciting workshops for children in Years 2-6 in the Village Hall. All children had a chance to play the drums, learning the special way to hold the sticks and hit the drum, as well as new rhythm patterns and Japanese phrases.
The children had an amazing day, and commented on how much fun they had. Many couldn’t believe how tiring it was, lifting their arms up high for every strike! It was truly an experience we won’t forget, with lots of children asking for another workshop next year!
We enjoyed World Book Day at Cockwood, with the children and staff dressing up as their favourite character and taking part in some lovely reading based activities.
Well done to everyone who made such an effort with costumes.
Children spent the afternoon designing and testing their own rockets in our science competition.
It was great fun and the teams gained points for super designs and rockets that flew the furthest.
