Some of the year 6 netball squad went to Willowbrook to play in a friendly high 5 netball match which we won 7-1. They all played really well. Jake Won man of the match. They particularly enjoyed the after match refreshments - flapjack and squash!
Year 5 footballers travelled to Exwick Sports Hub on Monday 18th. As well as a tournament there was also a variety of activity stations that focused on every aspect of football, such as: longest throw, speed dribbling, crossbar challenge and accuracy passing. The day was led by Exeter College students, who created and officiated each activity. The children even got to meet an Exeter City player who handed out the awards, of which Broadclyst won five. Huge well done to all of the footballers, we look forward to more activities like it in the future.
Year 1 had a wonderful day at Bicton Park and Gardens last Thursday. As part of our travel through time project we visited the countryside museum where we were shown around by a lovely gentleman named Fred who told us all about the various machines and engines - he even let us have a seat on a tractor and a ride in a carriage! We also had a ride on the famous train around the grounds of the park, we loved spotting all the clues on the way round which told us more about each part of the garden. In the afternoon we had a 'Sow and Grow' workshop where we learned about the importance of plants in the environment and had a look at a daffodil up close. We also planted our own seeds to bring back to school and look after - we can't wait to see what they turn into! Finally we had a quick play in the park before, sadly, it was time to return to school.
On Thursday Reception went on their first school trip to the World of Country Life. We were all very excited from the moment we stepped on the coach. "I liked going on the coach with my friends" said Ruby.
We had a very busy morning feeding the cows, walking the goats and cuddling the guinea pigs. Before lunch we got to go on a tractor ride which took us to feed some deer. "I liked feeding the deer" said Poppy, "they licked me and it was a bit slobbery". Albie also agreed that "the best part was going on the tractor to feed the deer because they were licking our hands".
In the afternoon we explored the grounds and watched a birds of prey flight display. "I liked seeing the animals fly because some of them went in circles" said Lucie.
