Our year 5 / 6 were kept in line by local police Constable James and police dog handler, Tom on Thursday. We are currently looking at the topic of crime and punishment and this was an excellent opportunity to learn about modern day policing methods. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and educational morning with our local police forces who delivered a fact filled, action packed morning.
South Molton Police Constable James demonstrated his bravery as police dog, Bowser, demonstrated his skills of how he can take down a criminal out in the field. The dogs speed, power and obedience was phenomenal to witness and I am glad that it was PC James on the receiving end of the demonstration.
Bowser continued to demonstrate his ability to seek out missing persons and lost items before we got to look around the police vehicles. The children were enthralled and enthusiastic all morning, asking great questions. A huge thankyou to both officers for a fantastic visit. It was great to meet our local team of police who work tirelessly to protect us.
Our year 3 / 4’s are approaching the end of their inaugural league campaign and on Wednesday they played their penultimate league fixture against South Molton United. Another spirited performance showing great determination and some great attacking football. However, we were out played in the defensive third of the pitch and lost 4 – 0. Clear improvements are being made and I am sure that with every game this group of players are improving all the time. Our final fixture against North Molton is on the 20th June.
With more opportunities to train together and having had the extra years perfecting their skills, our year 6’s performed phenomenally well in a very dominant performance. Everything clicked into place and we will have beaten most teams we have played this year with this performance. Solid at the back and an attacking flair that even an avid Liverpool fan would be impressed by. Mo Salah would have struggled to get into this side! We cruised to a 5 – 0 victory, very impressive!

OK, well maybe not exactly, but we had an amazing visit from Rosie’s mum who showed us lots and lots of amazing photos of animals and life in Africa. We saw that some of the moths are as big as Rosie’s hand:
They once had a scorpion sneak under the door of their house!
The ground is very rich in minerals which means the fruit and vegetables grow really big!
This is fruit and vegetables from Rosie’s own garden:
This bug was as big as Rosie’s mum’s hand!
These are both avocados, the smaller one is from the UK and classed as large, the big one is the one grown in Africa and is classed as small!
A huge thank you to Rosie and her mum as this is such a great way to learn about Geography, where we are learning about geographical similarities and differences through studying the geography of a small area in the UK and a small area in a contrasting non-European country.
