Pizza Express Trip 1HL

1HL thoroughly enjoyed their school trip to Pizza Express in Exeter. Our Global Communities Project is all about growing vegetables and then cooking them, we learnt where each ingredient come from. We are all looking forward to our vegetables growing in the allotment. 

When arrived we were greeted by the chef who gave out aprons and chefs hats! He talked about how the pizza is made and we had a quiz about where the dough, sauce and cheese came from. Everyone was given a piece of dough the children completed the difficult challenge of shaping and spinning it into the right shape. Not as easy as it looks! We then carefully spread the tomato sauce and put the cheese into some interesting patterns. 

The pizzas were cooked in their pizza ovens and were ready in no time, they smelt delicious!

The children had a fantastic trip! “This is the best day ever!” Edward. “My pizza was so yummy and my whole family got to have some” Lily.

Exeter University Big Bang

On Wednesday 25th April Year 5 had the fantastic opportunity to visit The Big Bang Show at Exeter University. This is the second year that Year 5 have taken part in the exhibition, a STEM based show that enables both Secondary and Primary pupils to see real life applications of Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering.

There were a wide range of exhibitors demonstrating products and technologies. The Year 5 pupils were able to use Virtual Reality headsets, which were a real hit! They observed ‘Space Worms’ through microscopes which are part of an experiment into the effect of space travel on muscle density. They controlled a robotic arm in order to grab and drop a chocolate bar. Some of the pupils took on the tricky challenge of transporting water from a large tank to various locations, such as a town and hospital, using pipes and connectors.

There were many other activities to take part in and observe including a 3D printer, building an RAF observation tower and game development amongst others. The children and teachers were both hugely inspired by the offerings and came away with a greater understanding of the amazing jobs and careers available in the STEM fields.

Pizza Express Trip Y1RS

1RS thoroughly enjoyed their school trip to Pizza Express in Exeter. Our Global Communities Project is all about growing vegetables and then cooking them, so this school trip cemented their ideas about growing.


When arrived we were greeted by the chef and gave out aprons and chefs hats! He talked about how the pizza is made and we had a quiz about what was in the dough and passata. The children were already very knowledgeable. Everyone was given a piece of dough the children completed the difficult challenge of shaping and spinning it into the right shape. Lee the chef made this look very easy! Everyone chose their toppings and decorate the pizza with passata, cheese, oregano and pepper! The pizzas were cooked in their pizza ovens and were ready in no time, they smelt delicious!

Space Dome Adventure

On Thursday year 1, 2 and 5 went on an adventure to the space dome.

We crawled inside a huge inflatable dome where we went on an adventure around the galaxy. We travelled to each planet in our solar system, looking at the differences and learning why there is no life. We watched the sun rise and set and waited for the stars to appear in the night sky. We went star gazing and spotted all sorted of pictures such as a unicorn, a dolphin and a snake. We all had a great time and learnt loads about space.

Year 4 at Police Headquarters

Year 4 had the chance to return to Middlemoor Police Headquarters on Tuesday 17th April, to be interviewed by some of the officers. As the children arrived they were introduced to the police officers who would be interviewing them. After a short introduction, each child took it in turns to watch a short video. The children were asked to remember as many details about what was happening throughout, as this would be the focus of the interviews. Whilst the children were waiting to be interviewed they were lucky enough to have free time in the pool! All of the children were fantastic help to the officers and were great at recalling some key information. Before they returned to school they were treated to a great lunch of sausage and chips in the canteen!

Super Sixes Golf Competition

Year 5 played in a Super Sixes Golf competition at St Luke’s school last Wednesday.

After just one day back at school, 12 pupils in two teams from Year 5 had the opportunity to play golf at St Luke’s on 18th April. The event took place on the astroturf at the school, and the pupils worked together to reach a hoop with their golf ball. The rules were simple – working in a pair, the children both had a swing, then chose the best of the two hits as the starting point for their next shots. The aim was to be the pair who took the fewest shots on each hole. The aim of the two teams of six BCPS pupils was to get the lowest score overall. In total, 12 teams attended this event, which was run by St Luke’s, Golf England and Exeter Golf and Country Club – where the BCPS children go for their own golf sessions in Year 5/6 games.

The competition was fierce, with one or two ‘holes in one' and the additional factor of a strong sidewind which made for some rather surprising curveballs! Despite the wind, the sun was beaming on what was possibly the nicest day of the year thus far – Mr Kimber certainly wasn’t complaining about his afternoon outdoors!

Overall, the Broadclyst teams came 7th and 4th – just missing out of a podium finish - but the children all really enjoyed their day of golf – some even made new friendships and met old friends from other schools along the way. Particular congratulations must go to Justina and Otto who both won Spirit of the Game awards for their good sportsmanship. Some of our golfers went into the competition a little nervous, but they all came out feeling they had done their best and some had improved a lot in such a short time. Well done Broadclyst!
