Chinese New Year family lunch

Chinese New Year family lunch

What a great turn out we had for our Chinese New Year Family Lunch on Tuesday. Families ate a delicious Chinese banquet; and shared Chinese fortune cookie wise thoughts and wishes. Thank you to the kitchen staff for another amazing meal and to support staff for organising this amazing event again. What a lovely time we had too!


NSPCC workshop

On Monday 13th January, the key stage 1 and 2 children took part in an NSPCC workshop. The children learnt about how to speak out on how to stay safe at school and at home. The children learnt how and who to talk to when they had a problem, if they were scared, they had experienced something that worried or upset them, or something had happened to them. The children learnt about ChildLine and how to contact them and why. The children enjoyed taking part in the factual workshop. Key stage 1 children made posters to help remind them of the jnfkrmationag home  (if ever needed).

Budding artists – WEEK 1

So today was the day we started our art club at our wonderfully creative school. The little artists were very eager to explore art through developing a range of skills; and using a range of mediums and materials.

The children mark made the 9 pre-writing shapes using a range of mediums eg pens, highlighters, crayons, and pencils on paper. The children had to think carefully about how they used the whole sheet of paper too. The children also mark made the 9 pre-writing shapes using paint on various materials i.e. black paper, newspaper, tin foil, and kitchen paper. The children had to use a paintbrush effectively to develop the brush strokes accurately.

All children had great fun learning about art and exploring mediums and materials today, great work. Let the projects begin!


Christmas party day

Class 2 had a great Christmas party day. The children spent the day cooking and decorating melted snowman biscuits, watching a Christmas movie and having fun at the Christmas party. The party involved lots of games and party food. Thank you to all parents who brought in party food. I think the children especially enjoyed coming to school dressed in their pyjamas!!

Running Club – Cross Country

To finish off the season Julie put together a fantastic finale event this week.

The children were able to exploit a gap in the rain and took to the cross country course. They all performed brilliantly and really enjoyed the event. We were supported by several marshals and everything “ran” very smoothly (sorry couldn’t resist).

This was our smaller scale school version of the Gliddon and Squire League Cross Country series of events across North Devon where Erin and Barnaby (and now Hope) have been competing (photos coming soon). These events on Sundays are a fantastic way into the sport. Well done to our fab Bish Nym competitors.
