Clovelly – the way down and lunch!

Burford Woods 21/5/2023

Cranford and Burscott classes had  a great day at Forest School in Burford Woods yesterday.

Science Week: Exploding lava slime

This was a real science experiment where we had to adapt quantities and ingredients to make it work. Luckily Mrs Nisbitt had the magic ingredient!

Science Week: Open afternoon

The children loved explaining what they had been up to to their peers across all classes, and to their parents.

Science Week: Double Bubbles

This was sooooo much fun! We had to blow one bubble and then blow another one inside it!

Science Week: Invisible Ink

We wrote secret messages in lemon juice and then made them reappear with an iron! It was awesome!

Science Week – Balloon Cars

What was Clovelly like?

In Burscott this afternoon, we explored what it would have been like in Clovelly hundreds of years ago. We did some research and found that fishing and boat building were a huge part of village life. They also traded limestone and Welsh coal. We decided to re-enact what it would have been like by building […]

KS1 football club

At lunchtime, we started a football club for Years one and two with some helpers from the older year groups. We practised dribbling and shooting and then used our skills in a match at the end of the session. It was lovely to enjoy the football in the sunshine. We’re all looking forward to next […]

Tea parties, dragon fly crafts 09/05

Today I helped more children create their dragon fly paracord buddies. They have been so amazing with learning how to do a cobra knot. They find it hard at first but then realised that they got the hang of it after some little practice. Be ause I was supporting small groups of children I asked […]

Dragonflies 02/05

An exciting day was had by everyone in burscott. I’m so proud of them some were playing tea parties, some where making dens and we started on our paracord dragonflies. They showed determination to get them done.

KS1 Multi-skills festival

Today, all the pupils from year 1 and 2 joined other schools from ACCT at the ARC tennis centre. They worked together to try out their skills including an obstacle course, tennis ground strokes, tennis ball dribble, throwing and catching and target shooting over a net. All the children gave each other great support and […]

World Record Attempt

This afternoon, Burscott class pledged to run a mile in a world record attempt.  They showed great determination to keep going and offered each other support and encouragement to ensure everyone completed the challenge.  Well done to you all.                           

Real Dance

This week in our Real Dance lesson, we learnt about artistry using very calm music. We started working individually and then in small groups. We learnt about keeping time with the music, working in unison and canon at varying levels.

Den building in the sunshine 14/03

We were very lucky with the weather today. Burscott were so great today with working collaboratively with each other to build team dens. I would definitely stick with this class if we were wild camping. I also had some super helpers to put the new IBC up ready for watering our plants.

What jobs do people do?

In our literacy work we have been looking at Information texts and how to present information about the jobs people do. We had a visitor to talk about his job. We listened beautifully, produced some amazing questions, and have done some great writing based on what we found out.

Creative time! 28/02

This week Burscott have been super creative with paper making, den building, fairy gardens, and elder pencil making. We also had an exciting event happen where a forest pixie dropped a not and a map for a scavanger hunt.

Pancakes! 21/02

Well we couldn’t not have pancakes today! We had a lovely session just exploring the new den area, and quiet area where they can chil on a hammock if it ever gets to loud or too much for them. There was bug hunting by the bug hotel. We also started to make paper with the […]
