Broadclyst vs Pinhoe Tag Rugby

On Friday 19th April Broadclyst played host to Pinhoe Primary for two tag rugby matches, with both teams putting in valiant performances. Broadclyst’s squad was made up of Jack M, Oliver H, Ben H, James C, Alice C, Lauren M, Megan J, Eleanor B (all from year six) and Thomas B (from year five). The team got off to an excellent start in the first game with Megan scoring the first try, and then multiple tries from Jack, Alice and Oliver secured a comfortable victory. The second game was much closer, with Broadclyst leading by just one try at half time. In the second half the team came out and played with a very strong defence, forcing Pinhoe to run sideways rather than forwards and themselves running in a number of tries to pull out a win.

The team showed much improvement from their last game against Duchy, were well-organised in attack and defence and did a good job of supporting each other. Jack and Oliver in particular showed off their leadership skills in making sure the team were always in the right place and giving their best. Every member of the team was a credit to the school and are all looking forward to the return game at Pinhoe in a few weeks’ time.

Kate Barker - Artist visit

On Thursday 21st March 2013 local artist Kate Barker came into school and held a print making workshop with class 4CF.   The children focused on the theme of nature and produced a series of stencils before the visit.  The stencils were used in the process of silk screen printing.  The children used textile medium and acrylic paint to create beautiful banners, they thought carefully about the colours and tones found in nature and  tried to arrange them in a contrasting way.


The children also focussed on texture creating beautiful mono-prints and printing with rollers and water based ink.  The children were really pleased with the effects they created and experimented with many abstract designs and ideas.


Year 2 Tennis Coaching

Over the past few weeks all of year 2 have had the opportunity to take part in some tennis coaching sessions.  An instructor from the Tennis Centre has been teaching the children all of the basics, trying to encourage them to become the next Andy Murray.  So far the children have learnt the names for all the lines on a court and how to play a forehand and backhand.  Everyone has really enjoyed the sessions and it has been good to see the children learn new skills and put them into practise.  The instructor is on the lookout for children with natural talent and is going to offer 10 children the opportunity to visit the tennis centre for a free coaching session.


Forest School - Yr 1 & Yr 4

Forest School has continued for years 1 & 4 this year to great success. Led by Julie Bateman, Calli Walkerdine and Matthew Easterbrook, it gives children the chance to gain a variety of experiences that they could not have inside a classroom. Using both the school’s own forest school site and Julie’s site on the nearby farm, children have had the chance to explore their local environment, learn how to safely use tools such as bow saws, hand drills and knives, and how to responsibly build and extinguish a fire. Forest school is intended to set children up for success and to give them the confidence to take responsibility for their own learning. Many children go through a significant transformation from their first session to their last, and all children thoroughly enjoy their sessions.


Class 2SGo La Tasca Visit

2SGO La Tasca Trip

This term year 2 have been learning about Europe and seeing as we realistically couldn’t visit any of the countries ourselves we had to look a bit closer to home! Year 2 decided a trip to the Spanish restaurant La Tasca would give the children the opportunity to learn a bit about the Spanish culture and hopefully sample some of the food. 2SGo made the trip one Monday morning and had an amazing time at the restaurant. They had a Spanish lesson from a native speaker who taught the children the numbers to 10 as well as the days of the week. After that they learnt about some of the Spanish foods before having a salad decorating competition. After this they were lucky enough to have one of the chefs give the children a paella demonstration which was fantastic. They learnt about what goes into paella and how the rice is flavoured as well as some of the other varieties that you can have. The children then sat down to a tapas feast! Spanish meatballs, prawns, fish strips, garlic bread, dips and of course some paella! It was all delicious and everyone had too much to eat. Overall the children had a wonderful time and as they said ‘adios’ were presented with one last treat…a lolly! The staff at the restaurant were fantastic with the children and made the class feel very welcome.
