On Friday 10th March, Year One had an exciting and informative trip to Morwellham Quay. The trip linked in with our topic: the Victorians. During the day, we had the chance to go to a Victorian school, dress up as Victorians, have a look at what home life would be like for children living at the time and also, go on a mine train into a copper mine. Thank you very much to all the parents/volunteers who kindly gave their time to come and help us with this trip. Mrs Dennis.
We have been learning how to play the ukulele. So far, we have learnt how to hold the instrument in the resting and ready position and how to strum the strings in time to a song. We are beginning to learn the chord C, but it is very tricky with little fingers!
On Thursday 6th October Year One had a fantastic trip to a sunny Darts farm. The trip was part of our food and farming and topic. We were shown around the farm and were able to see how and where all of their different produce was grown. We also visited the pond and were able to have a look at the wildlife from their bird hide. In the afternoon we went on a nature walk along the Exe Estuary trail. Thank you very much to all those parents who kindly gave their time to drive and help with the trip. The children all thoroughly enjoyed the day. Lucy Dennis.
