Christmas Around the World
Thank you to Mel for coming and teaching Class 2 about Christmas in Germany. The children drank some (non-alcoholic!) mulled wine, sang some German songs and listened to Mel telling them about some German traditions.
KS2 Cross Country
Well done to our Key Stage 2 children for their efforts at the cross country festival. They all tried their hardest in sunny, but very muddy conditions.
Year 1/2 Multiskills Festival
Year 1 and 2 had a great morning at the Atlantic Racquet Centre in Bideford. They took part in many different multiskills activities with 7 other schools in the ACCT. Well done to the children for their behaviour and enthusiasm.
Burton Art Gallery Visit - Michael Morpurgo Exhibition
Year 5 and 6 enjoyed an afternoon at the Burton Art Gallery before half term. They saw some of the artefacts used on the set of the play 'War Horse' and learnt about how Michael Morpurgo writes and where he gets his ideas from.
Visiting Authors: Tom McLaughlin
We enjoyed a great visit from children's author Tom McLaughlin, as part of the Appledore Book Festival. Tom talked to all the classes about how he thinks of plot for his stories and showed them how he illustrates his books.
Year 3 and 4 children enjoyed their morning at Atlantic Racquet Centre participating in tennis based games with children from across our Co-operative Trust.
