The Music Concert
I'm still glowing from the absolute joy of our music festival. What a glorious afternoon of song, solos and sunshine! Thank you to everyone who took part, helped in any way, or came and watched, danced and sang. Our school field became a remarkable cross between Glastonbury and Glyndebourne for an afternoon and I couldn't be happier or prouder. What an incredible depth of talent we have in our pupils and what a performance they put on.
Thank you to Lucy Wilson for the photos, and once more to Mrs Dunn who conceived of the idea and brought it to its remarkable conclusion. If your children are inspired and would like to learn an instrument, please contact the school office. We have peripatetic teachers for piano, drums, guitar and woodwind.
Pre-school Window Display in the Village Shop
A big thank you and well done to the preschool pupils who have made a beautiful display for the shop window to advertise the South Zeal open gardens.
The link to purchase school class photographs has now been sent out to parents and carers via Schoolcomms. Please contact the school office if you have not received the link.
Trust Wildlife Champions
On Wednesday, we went to Meeth Quarry for a wildlife champions day with all of the other schools. There were four activities that we did throughout the day.
Our first activity was The Deep and it showed us how deep animals lived and which zones they lived in underwater.
Our second activity was bushcraft where we used flint and steels to light little fires in tins and shells.
The third activity was water world and we had nets and trays and we had to find little bugs in the swamp. I found a dragonfly!
Our last activity of the day was a nature walk. We had nets and Petri dishes and we used our clip boards and paper to tick off the bugs we had found. We went on a walk and looked down to where they were digging in the quarry.
It was a really fun day and we’re looking forward to using some of the ideas back at school.
