Class 3 Assembly 

Posted on

Class 3 performed their annual assembly this week, called ‘Under The Sea’. 

Children dressed up as sea animals and story characters for the show, and impressed the crowd with their confident speaking and super dance moves! It was wonderful to see the children perform in front of their peers and parents, and we are very proud of all they have achieved.

Pupils in Year 6 helped local residents Nigel and Sally Stoneman to decorate the village recently with new flowers.

The children chose the flowers and then planted them on the bridge near the village green. They will now water them for the remainder of the term and hope that all local residents will enjoy them.

FizzPop Science Assembly

The children were excited and amazed by the hands-on experiments of ‘Tectonic Tim’ from FizzPop Science today.

He produced giant bubbles and soapsuds towers, before setting fire to the soapsuds; someone had to be very sensible and brave! He finally produced ‘elephant toothpaste’ to the wonder of the children, and explained the science behind it.

Harbour Defence Scheme Opening Performance

Posted on

The children from the Choir were invited to sing at the official opening of the new harbour wall, as part of the latest work completed in the Harbour Defence Scheme.

The event took place on the Village Green, where the children sang a special sea related song; ‘Drop in the Ocean’ and completed many fun activities provided by the Environment Agency. We also watched the plaque unveiling, and one pupil helped cut the ribbon for the official opening!

The children’s performance was filmed for ITV Westcountry News, with some children taking part in an interview about local flooding which may be broadcast at the weekend- all very exciting! The children were also able to find out more about how tides work, have a look inside an Environment Agency van and use a remote controlled grass mower.
