Cake Sale

The Yew class cake sale on Wednesday afternoon made £93.00 ! 

We were stunned by the amount of cakes brought in by the children- many thanks for your hard work.

Great Fire of London !

Great Fire of London ! 1
Our 'Great Fire of London' day was very popular with the children ! Our visitor from the Royal Albert Memorial Museum came dressed in full Tudor costume and well resourced to run a number of exciting activities, which the children experienced through the day. These included dressing up in Tudor costume, finding out about what they ate, observing and drawing a model of a Tudor house and writing in ink with a goose quill ! The day concluded in the church, with a 'role play' of the Great Fire in front of a large Tudor backdrop.

Making Gingerbread Men

The children enjoyed making Gingerbread Men, linked to our 'Traditional Stories' topic. It also fitted very well with our literacy plan on 'instructions'. The children have written instructions for Red Riding Hood to reach Grandma's house and also how to make a gingerbread man.

Our topic in the first half term is 'Grow it, Cook it, Eat it'.

There are details of the curriculum areas we will be studying in the class newsletter (below)

SPRING TERM 2015

This term, our topics are:

Before half term: Julia Donaldson- exploring her books.

After half term: 'What's in Stoke Canon ?'- a local study. We are finding out about the local facilities and comparing with what you might find in a town or city. We are also looking at a wider area and finding out where Stoke Canon is located in Devon, Britain and the world and looking into what you might find in other areas of Britain.

The final part is to relate our area of Britain to an area of Australia- in terms of weather, environment, lifestyle, transport. 

Take your children on a tour on 'Google Maps' to zoom in on home!  https://www.google.co.uk/maps

'Blood Bikers South West' Visit

Blood Bikers Visit

Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service operate the blood bike scheme- they transport blood plasma to and from hospitals when transfusions are needed. The children enjoyed hearing about what they do- and especially trying out the bikes ! 

Freewheelers EVS are all unpaid volunteers . We would like to thank them for visiting us !

AUTUMN TERM 2014

This term, our topic is 'On the Farm'- we are learning about how farming has changed over the years and the importance of weather and the seasons to farmers. Have a look at our class newsletter.....

George's Marvellous Medicine Project

Over the last two days, the class have been working with the artist Lucy Jackson, to create large scale artwork for the Northcott Theatre. This will be displayed in the foyer during the production of George's Marvellous Medicine (in December).

The children made three large chicken sculptures, their own smaller chickens in pairs and made an animation of the story (see further down on the webpage)

A lot of learning and a lot of fun !
