The Mix Festival 2019

Posted on

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.

Les fruits!

Class 1 learnt the names of fruit in French by tasting different fruits and making games using fruit names.

We learnt to make simple phrases and sentences in French describing foods we like and do not like, extending sentences where we could, adding conjunctions and adjectives we know.

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.
