20.06.17 Multi -skills at South Molton Community College: A huge thank you to the pupils at this school who hosted the multi skills event for our children.

The children had a fantastic time trying out all the activities.
07/06/17 Science week - Up, up and away! The children enjoyed the fantastic opportunity they had to see a hawk flying close up.

As you can see from the photographs, they are very focused!

25.04.17 The children have enjoyed a fantastic day filled with lots of smiles and fun! We headed to Umberleigh by bus to catch the train to Barnstaple. We walked across the bridge to visit the museum and the children were fascinated by all the different rooms filled with items of interest. When walking back to the train we popped into Tesco, where we were given free lollies! The children were very polite and well behaved throughout the whole trip and we are extremely proud of the way they represented our school.

15.03.17 A parcel arrived for the children in Red Class. With great excitement they opened it to find a fox with a letter apologising for eating the gingerbread man. The children thought of an alternate ending to our story which included flying carpets, castles, and a bridge! On Friday we made gingerbread men and as you can see the children enjoyed it.
02.03.17 World Book Day. The children have had a very exciting day. They all arrived in fantastic costumes carrying their favourite book. We wrote a shared story and really enjoyed performing it to the Purple class, with every child playing a part.
