All the children enjoyed the school Christmas dinner and reading the jokes in the crackers others had made. A great way to end the term.
The pupils in Tawny Owls, Snowy Owls and Barn Owls had great fun working in groups to create wooden reindeers today in forest school.
The Tawny Owls enjoyed prepping the oaty cookie mixture ready for baking tomorrow. These will be eaten while celebrating their performance of the winter play with their family.
The Tawny Owls went for a walk around Bridestowe village to generate ideas for their English writing, based on the text A Walk in London.
Sarah from Devon Wildlife Trust took the Wildlife Champions litter picking around the village. They collected a range of different types of rubbish and recorded this on a tally chart. Look out for their posters about rubbish which will be coming soon.
The Snowy Owls performed a number of Christmas Carols to the residents of Springfields. They enjoyed singing and the residents enjoyed listening. A wonderful way for the children to be a key part of our wider community. The Snowy Owls were treated to cakes and biscuits after they had sang.
The School Council were joined by other children from the Moorland Hub schools to sing carols at Waitrose. It was great to see all the children coming together and there were lots of compliments of their singing. We even had a message from a professional singer saying they were very good! The public were generous with their donations and we raised a total of £105 for the five schools.
Thank you to our friends at Open the Book for sharing another Christian story from the Bible - this story was about the birth of Baby Jesus and the preparations which Christians make in the lead up to Christmas. Each child has been gifted a book from the Chapel which tells them more about the Christmas Story.
It was fantastic to welcome so many family members into school this afternoon.
It was a productive hour, where pupils worked in their teams alongside their relatives and peers to make crackers for our Christmas lunch next week. They also had the opportunity to create decorations for the community Christmas tree - as well as one to take home.
Thank you to FoBS for organising the resources/craft materials and anyone that made a donation towards these.
The Tawny Owls have been studying the Julia Donaldson story, Cave Baby this half term in English. They have re-written the story, edited and published them beautifully. The Tawny Owls team were delighted with the quality of work every child produced and couldn't resist making a display of them. Well done Tawny Owls!
The snow did not put the Tawny Owls off exploring our environmental area again this week! Sara from the Wildlife Trust planned another exciting session, looking at what happens to trees during the seasons and the different types of trees there are (evergreen and deciduous). The pupils then had to hunt for as many of these trees in our forest school, using a leaf recognition chart to help them.
