Red Cross First Aid Tuesday 16th July 2013

On Tuesday 16th July, year 6 had a visit from two first aid experts from the Red Cross. The children learned and practised many essential and potentially lifesaving skills such as bandaging, CPR and how to put a patient into the recovery position. Using their friends and some CPR dummies, the children acted out scenarios following correct procedures including checking for dangers, listening for a response and opening the casualty’s airway. Children also had the opportunity to ask questions about how to deal with some common first aid situations and how they can help if a problem arises.

Year Six Sailing Day

On Friday 19th July the Year 6’s were treated to a fantastic day’s sailing on the Exe Estuary in Exmouth. The conditions were perfect, with light offshore winds and clear blue skies. Everyone had the opportunity to spend some time sailing on a small dingy with a qualified instructor, as well as enjoying some time playing on the beach. It was an idyllic day, with all the children showing a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and excitement. Many of the children said ‘it was one of the best things they had ever done’. A big thank you must be extended to all of the instructors at the Exe Sailing Club who gave up their time to make the day possible.

Year Three Brass Project

P1010516

This year, classes 3LW and 3SGe have been learning to play a range of brass instruments, from the pocket trumpet, to the trombone to the baritone! Over the year they have made excellent progression with the sound they can make and can now play a range of pieces in the class band. The children have had the wonderful opportunity to play some of their favourite pieces, in a canteen performance for parents and family. Some of the children’s favourite pieces are ‘We will rock you’, ‘Run’ and ‘Uppity’! If you would like to watch the performances look out for them on Clickview in the future.

Killerton Picnic Concert

On Monday evening the beautiful grounds of Killerton house were the backdrop to the final concert of the year for the three school choirs. The very appreciative and enthusiastic audience baked in the early evening sunshine whilst listening to a varied programme of songs, not only by the Junior Choir, Senior Choir and Chamber Choir, but a number of soloists as well. Several songs by the massed choirs covered favourites not only from the current ‘Summer of Rock’ repertoire but also from their ‘Spring of Soul’ collection. Drinks, ice-cream and cakes from the house café complemented the event, but also rewarded the children for yet another successful performance.

Café Concerts – Summer Finale

This last week has seen the final concerts in this year’s Café Concerts season, with three separate afternoons of performances from the violin pupils, singing pupils, keyboard pupils and flute pupils. The teachers, Carina Vince, Ruth Molins and Abbe Martin having worked their students hard through the term were each very proud of the children. Parents and café goers alike were treated to performances at the end of each school day that kept the café packed into early evening. Well done to all pupils involved, who performed bravely, with enthusiasm and a sense of occasion, despite the very hot café conditions!

New Foundation Intake

Over the last couple of weeks, Mrs Daniels & Mrs Dudley have been doing home visits where we have met the children in their homes who are ready to start school in September.

We have found out what the children liked to do and we also showed them a PowerPoint which told them all about their new school such as what they will learn during PE, where they will eat their lunch, what school trips they might go on, and what topics they will look at over the year.

Since then, we have had small groups of children coming into Foundation in the afternoons to get to know their new classrooms and some of the activities they will join in with at school.

On Friday 60 new children were able to all come in together to join in with a mornings activities and get to know each other. They were very eager to get to know their new teachers and find out where everything is in their classroom. They are all looking forward to wearing their new school uniform and feel very excited about starting ‘big’ school in September.

Year 4 Kingfisher Awards

kingfisher

Year 4 children took part in the ‘Kingfisher Awards’ which celebrated last night with their picnic and judging of the children’s projects.  The children created a beautiful display of work based on river habitats.  Over the term the children have learnt all about life cycles, habitats and food chains and produced some amazing work including a 3D life cycle, homemade bread with wild garlic and felted cushions. As ever, the standard of the entries was incredible, but the children demonstrated such detailed knowledge and creativity that they managed to achieve a astounding second place, narrowly missing first by just one point!  Well done to all the children involved.

Devon Summer School Games

On Friday 28th June, the school's aquathlon team attended the finals of the Devon Summer School Games.  This was an amazing event with schools from all over Devon each representing their area in their qualifying event.  The students from Broadclyst had to swim with a transition to a cross country run.  They performed outstandingly and in an extremely competitive event they won a bronze medal.  This the school's first year of entering the School Games and to come away knowing we are the third best aquathlon team in the whole of Devon is quite something.  We are very very proud of the students who acheived this.

The Kingfisher Awards select a topic every year which is related to the world around us, and a number of schools compete to produce the best display of their work. This year the topic is 'rivers' and year four have been looking at rivers as habitats for wildlife of all kinds. They have produced some amazing felt animals, some quiz boards to test other pupils' knowledge about all things river-related and a whole host of other amazing work which will be put on display at the Awards Picnic. The Picnic takes place on Wednesday, 3rd July and is open to all visitors from 5pm. The Awards Picnic will be held at Newton St. Cyres Recreation Ground and the children would love to see as many friendly faces as possible to share their fantastic achievements.
