DT project

The children had a great time preparing for the Mad Hatters tea party which ran in conjunction with World Book Day.

The children were able to design their product and identify the ingredients needed for jam tarts and sandwiches. The children were able to prepare the ingredients hygienically and use the appropriate utensils required for the tasks. They were able to follow recipes to achieve the final product.

It got a little messy at times but a great time was had by all! That’s what baking is all about!

World Book Day

Yr 6 had a great day on World Book Day, which was celebrated across the school. All the children looked fantastic in their costumes and lots of reading and writing happened across the morning. The children were ‘thrown into’ the world of Alice in Wonderland and the adventures she had throughout the book. Some creative writing was achieved across the day where the children were able to write independently from any character and in a format of their choice.
In the afternoon, the children enjoyed a Mad Hatters tea party. The children made jam tarts and sandwiches as part of a mini DT project and enjoyed their finished products as part of the tea party.

A great day had by all!

Canal walk

Some of our Year 6 children went out for a walk as part of a selection process for the Exmoor Challenge. The walk was at a fast pace and all children coped well with how far we walked too! This was no challenge in comparison to the Exmoor Challenge itself, but all the children were in good spirits. They were extremely respectful of other members of the public as we walked along the canal. Their behaviour and manners were a credit to themselves and the school.
The canal was still frozen in parts but they enjoyed watching the ducks slide on the ice! We were lucky to see sight of a buzzard too! Well done Year 6!

Time in a bottle

Year 6 were lucky to see the return of Paul Stevens and see him deliver his insightful workshop around the misuse of alcohol.

The children watched a drama performance called Time in a bottle. Al Cohol is a young boy who has been influenced by Tony Pearce into drinking alcohol from a young age. He is son to Fred and Wilma Cohol.

The performance shows Al’s life through the years and the challenges he faces surrounding alcohol.

After the performance, the children were engaged in a true or false quiz. They then had the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the mornings performance.

Year 6 librarians

Our librarians wanted to share their love of reading with some of the younger children. Their enthusiasm for reading and the library is promoted daily and they wish to instil their love of reading to others.
All the children were completely enthralled by the older children reading to them. They were able to answer questions about the book and as you can see, were totally engaged!
Our librarians are a credit to themselves and the school. Well done!

Canal walk

Last week Year 6 went on a team building walk along the canal. Albeit the weather being damp, the children enjoyed hearing and seeing the sights of the calm canal and enjoyed each other’s companies along the way.
The children were very respectful of members of the public and were a credit to the school with their behaviour and manners.

Proclamation of the king

Two children from Year 6 who are newly appointed school councillors, attended the Proclamation of the King at Phoenix House. The children represented the school in a mature and respectful way. They met the mayoress of Tiverton and the Bishop of Crediton.

The children then signed the book of condolences for our dearly departed Queen.

Class of 2022-2023

Welcome back Year 6! We are really looking forward to seeing you all on the 7th September. We have been busy preparing for your return and we have lots of things planned and are excited to get started! See you all on the 7th!

The Year 6 team.


Over the past few weeks, we have worked hard to put together an end of year production. We have worked hard to learn lines, learn songs and make props. Yesterday all of our hard work paid off when we performed to two large audiences.

Year 6 residential~Isle Of Wight

The children had a fantastic trip to the Isle Of Wight for their residential. The week was jam packed from beginning to end.

The children visited a donkey sanctuary, Blackgang Chine, The Needles and Robin Hill Country Park. Lots of activities at all the venues and lots of other activities during the evening.

The children were suitably tired by the end of the week and all had a fantastic time away.
