Safer internet day in Sharks

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

Last week, in sharks, the children spent the afternoon learning about how to stay safe on the internet. We started with a fun activity that involved us ‘drawing the internet’. This inspired lots of questions about what the internet is and what it means to us. We then watched a video about keeping ourselves safe on the internet and asking others for permission and consent. We ended the session by creating posters to teach others about how to keep safe online. 

Science and Technology showcase

Friday, January 25th, 2019

As part of Devon and Cornwall Children’s University, our year 5 and 6 children who have a CU passport had the opportunity to take part in an exciting school trip this week. 14 children from Sharks, Hermit Crabs and Starfish went to Plymouth University and had an amazing afternoon having fun and learning about a variety of STEM subjects, from chemistry, marine science to mathematics and earth science to engineering.

All the stalls were manned by very enthusiastic University students and were all hands on and packed with activities, and at the end of the afternoon our children had their passport stamped!

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.
