3LW at Martinsfield Farm

On Friday 24th May class 3LW will be visiting Martinsfield Farm as part of their learning about animals and their habitats. They will compare different hedgerows for the range of organisms that live amongst them. They will also go on a nature walk exploring where they can find badger setts, rabbit burrows, mole hills, woodpecker holes and owl and bat boxes. 3LW have been considering how animals adapt to the different habitats that they live in and also learning about food chains within a habitat. The children are all very excited about their trip and think it will be a lovely way to end the half term.


Early Years Consultation

Recently proposed changes to Early Years Education have been frequently in the national media. The school is working with the Department for Education (DfE) and the Education Funding Agency (EFA) looking at the Early Years provision in Broadclyst and exploring options to enhance the current provision. One option being considered by the Governing body is the establishment of a nursery setting. We are wishing to consult with both the school community and the wider community whilst working with our partners and stakeholders to consider the best options for the children. We are liaising closely with the Devon County Council Early Years Team, the Broadclyst Pre-School Committee and the Pre-School Manager.

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.
