World Safer Internet Day in Hermit Crabs

Posted: 5 February 2019


Today is World Safer Internet Day and all the children in Hermit Crabs attended an assembly learning about e-safety.

The children enjoyed learning about things like: why companies collect personal information, how to make positive choices about their life online and to be careful before sharing information about their friends.

Everyone agreed that if they were ever unsure about anything whilst online, they would speak to an adult for help and support.






Science and Technology showcase

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!

Time Capsule Discovery!

Posted: 11 January 2019



Have you ever wondered what life was like for the children evacuated from their homes and family during World War 2?

Following the exciting discovery of a time capsule, that’s what Hermit Crabs have been investigating this week. They were lucky enough to be one of the classes chosen to examine the contents of the time capsule and learn more about them. Some of the items discovered included: a gas mask, ration card, newspapers and some photographs.

Hermit Crabs are looking forward to learning more about World War 2 in the coming weeks.
