We spent a brilliant 2 days at the Start Bay Study Centre in Slapton with Year 3 & 4. We spent time on the beach, played team games, did the low ropes course and enjoyed a walk in the woods. The children had a great time and were amazing!

As part of our work to raise awareness of the damage plastic can do to wildlife we carried out a beach clean at Bovisand Beach on Saturday. There were 18 of us and in just over an hour we collected a lot of plastic and other litter. Well done everyone!

We enjoyed parading our Easter bonnets in our church service and we went on an Easter egg hunt and rolled our decorated eggs! Well done to everyone who made a hat and to our class winners Lauren, Henry, Adair and Grace. Have a lovely Easter everyone!

We had a brilliant STEM week... we had a scientist in to make potions with us, we made and designed things, we measured and weighed, we explored STEM in the woods and at the Zoo, we had a talk from an engineer at the mine and some of us were marine biologists!

On Wednesday the snow came down, there was so much excitement and we had a great time outside before having to go home early. For most of the children this was their first real snow!

It has been a struggle at times but staff have made it through the month and are looking forward to March 1st (as you can see from the photo Miss Sparkes has shared with me!). Thank you to those who supported us, we reached our target and made £203 for Cancer Research. Well done!
