Visit to Paignton Zoo on Friday 30th June
On Friday we visited Paignton Zoo to see all the creatures we had been learning about in our science unit on Animals. We began with a session in the Education Centre classroom on sorting and classifying animals into mammals, reptiles, birds, fish and amphibians. After that we looked at as many animals as we could around the zoo. The children were beautifully behaved and showed such enthusiasm and excitement when seeing some wonderful animals very close up. What a great day!

In our History topic we are learning about toys from the past. Today we had a special visit from Audrey's mum. She brought in her collection of wind-up toys. We all had a chance to play with these very special items and find out about how they work.
Exeter City Reward Day - Tuesday 25th April
We have been playing dodgeball and football today with some of the Exeter City Football Club school coaches. They helped us to improve our ball skills and made sure that we had lots of fun. At the end of this very active session we got to meet Grecian the Lion and some of the first team players!
Science Day - Tuesday 25th April 2017
Today we found out all about the science of bubbles! Josh showed us how to touch a bubble without popping it, create a bubble filled with cloud and how to create bubbles that were both heavy and light. We had a fun morning!
Lewis - I liked the explosion because it was so loud.
Cayden - I enjoyed it when he made the cloud bubbles. When they popped there was white cloud everywhere!
Amelia - I liked it when he put the cloud bubbles on their heads. It was funny!
Bobby - I liked the explosion.
Fergus - The explosion was good because it was like lava in the air.
Spelling Bee - Monday 24th April.
Here are the Year 1 spellings to learn for the whole school Spelling Bee.
Terrific Tour Guides Presentation
On Wednesday 29th March we had our Terrific Tour Guides Afternoon where children presented their projects about countries of the UK which they had worked on at home.
It was wonderful that so many parents were able to attend the event. We were so proud of the children who showed such confident speaking skills when presenting their project to so many different adults.
In science we planted some beans. We looked after the beans and were very surprised when they grew very quickly! We wrote a bean diary. We are going to plant them in the keyhole garden.
Paddleboat Theatre Day - Tuesday 31st January 2017
The children enjoyed a whole day visit from the Paddleboat theatre company. They took part in a workshop session based around the story 'According To Arthur' and then in the afternoon watched a performance of the story.
