Everyone enjoyed sharing their love of books for World Book Day last week.
The children took part in a range of book-related tasks from designing book covers, creating quizzes and designing their own book-marks. This year the children had a choice to either dress-up , bring in a prop as a clue to a book character or create a wooden spoon book character. (more…)
We are delighted to announce we have been awarded the Gold Standard for our work on Parliament.
We welcomed our local MP, Anne Marie Morris to an assembly to celebrate this amazing achievement. The children in Class 1 had prepared some questions for her linked to our work on recycling and sustainability.
This week children from Key Stage 2 had the opportunity to attend the exciting ‘Mix Festival’ held at Dartington Hall in Totnes. Children from primary schools across Devon attended this day of workshops and performances from steel pans to the Royal Marines Band!
Throughout the day, the children experienced new instruments and learnt about their origins, as well as learning how to use new technology to compose musical pieces online. The children attended workshops where they learnt how to play violins, taiko drums, Brazilian samba drums, steel pans, as well attending a ‘have a go’ session where they were able to play any instrument they wanted! A particular highlight of the day was also having their faces painted with ‘The Mix’ festival logo.
