To kick start British Science Week, we held a STEAM fair where parents/carers could get involved in a variety of fun activities with the children. We had:

  • Cognition Learning visit us who used Lego Education Spike Prime and Lego Duplo to explore the concept of the future and the constellations.
  • The Institution of Engineering and Technology brought along their small robots for the children to program and a Micro:Bit based guard dog
  • Vodafone (Submarine Cable Engineers in Bude) conducted some route planning around undersea features and cable repairs.
  • Lego and Beebot Challenges, Invisible
    Ink, Make it fly, Measuring time, Time travelling
    programmers, Pendulum creating, Explorify challenges and much more!

It was lovely to see the children showing their adults their scientific understanding and exploring the activities together. Lots of children left commenting about how they’d love a future career as an engineer too!

A letter from the King!

Recently, we received some very exciting post!
Last May, children in Elm, Beech and Sycamore Class wrote to King Charles III (as part of their topic) to congratulate him on his Coronation, and today they were delighted to receive a reply!


We would like to say thank you to everyone for your help with the Harvest festival.
The fresh produce went to Holsworthy Fridge. The non-perishables were taken to the food bank.
Message from the foodbank below:
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your kind donations as part of Harvest Festival. We weighed everything you gave us and it totalled a fantastic 132.40kg! This will really help us to provide much needed support to people in need in our area.

Gardening Project

Children across Key Stage 2 supported our nursery children with a spot of gardening earlier this week. We are super proud of how they worked together on this project.
Thank you to Mrs Paddon and Miss Paddon for organising this opportunity.
