Northcott Art Exhibition

The children in Year 3 have had a selection of their artwork on display at Exeter Cathedral. The Northcott Theatre asked if we would move the display of Brazilian Puppets to support their upcoming production 'The Day We Played Brazil' which will take place from 16th – 27th August. The puppets have been displayed along the length of the foyer above the bar and restaurant. They look amazing in their new situation and we have already received messages of appreciation; one was from an actor who said how lovely it was to see the puppets every day when he goes to work.

India Link-School Collaboration Day

Children across years 3-5 had the opportunity to visit Sidmouth C of E Primary School on 27th June, to participate in a collaborative day on the topic of Indian weddings. This day revolved around the development of our link with Jasola Primary School in India, by recreating our own traditional Hindu Indian wedding.

Throughout the day, children were given the opportunity to decorate the wedding hall, produce a wall-hanging of Ganesh, make jewellery and also paint Mehndi patterns on each other's hands. After lunch, all of the children were involved in the wedding celebrations, playing the role of bride, groom, extended family and guests.
