Visit from Torquay Fire Brigade

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Earlier this week, Starfish, Hermit Crabs and Sharks had a visit from some fire-fighters from the Fire Brigade from Torquay. They taught us how to be safe in and outside buildings, what to do in case of an emergency and which are the most important things to remember if we or someone around us is in danger.

We even got to try on some of the equipment they use to protect themselves when they are called on a fire, it was heavy and a bit smelly!

G3 - All Change!

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

This term, the children have started learning about materials in Science.  They have learnt what materials are, and can now describe a variety of materials according to their properties, using correct, technical Science vocabulary.  This week, we explored reversible and irreversible changes.  The children were really impressed when they observed some irreversible changes taking place in front of them!


World Book Day - Sharing our stories.

Friday, March 9th, 2018

G3 have spent several weeks preparing their own version of a Mr Men or Little Miss Story. The purpose of the story was to share it with younger children, so today they went down to visit Reception and read them their special stories.

G3 loved sharing their stories with the Reception children and Reception really enjoyed making new friends and hearing the lovely stories.

Monday, February 26th, 2018

Today, saw the end of our Ancient Egyptian topic.  In a special assembly this afternoon, the children in B1, B2 and G3 all took to the stage to show case what they have learnt about the Ancient Egyptians.  Our class began with a dance, followed by some role play, followed by some interesting facts about pyramids and why they were built all those years ago.  The children danced, acted and read beautifully!  Well done, G3!

G3 I want my mummy!

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

This week, the children in B1, B2 and G3 have all enjoyed a morning at Torquay Museum.  Whilst they were there, they all had the opportunity to look at the Ancient Egyptian exhibit and were particularly impressed by the real-life mummy that was housed in a glass cabinet.  The children were very inquisitive and found out lots of information about the Egyptians that they never knew before.  They especially enjoyed taking part in a carousel of creative activities.  The children all had the opportunity to try on some Ancient Egyptian clothing and masks; make a Scarab Beetle out of clay; write their names on a piece of papyrus using hieroglyphics; learn about Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and make a necklace using shiny pieces of paper.

The children thoroughly enjoyed  their morning at the museum and are looking forward to finding out even more about the Ancient Egyptians in the coming weeks.
