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.

Kingfisher Awards Presentation Picnic

Year 4 have been hard at work for the last few weeks on their Kingfisher Awards project. 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.

Children in Year 5 Keep Calm and Carry On!

Children in Year 5 partnered with Killerton again this year to put on a fantastic performance of Keep Calm and Carry On, a historical re-enactment of the day after the Exeter blitz in 1942.

The performance which was set in the days following the Exeter Blitz explored life as an evacuee at Killerton House. The production took place as a series of sketches performed by both year 5 classes in and around the grounds of Killerton House.

The storyline is based on Killerton’s evacuee schools during the war, researched and written by the children with the help of teachers and staff at Killerton. The audience got to meet meet an ‘elite’ unit of Home Guardsmen, gossip with members of the Land Army, listen in on teachers’ staff room conversations and watch children prepare for the possibility of a gas attack. The performance ended with the evacuated children walking up the Killerton drive following a 1939 Rover 10, kindly donated by Crispins Car hire.

Feedback from the project has been fantastic with children, parents and members of the public saying how much they enjoyed the whole performance. Watch out for a WW1 theme next year!

Clyst Vale Science Circus 2013- 6th & 13th June 2013

The children in year 6 have recently taken part in a ‘Science Circus’ run by our neighbouring secondary school Clyst Vale. Students and teachers from Clyst Vale visited our school bringing with them an exciting array of Science activities and mini-experiments. The children got a taster of each of the experiments including; testing fruit batteries, finding out which dyes can make up a single felt tip colour, testing everyday liquids to see which were acids or alkalis and becoming a geologist by sorting and growing rocks. As the activities were run by current Clyst Vale students, children who will be attending there next year had the opportunity to meet students and ask them any burning questions. The most popular was ‘How much homework will we have?’ .The children had a wonderful time and cannot wait to experience more secondary science!
