Exmoor Challenge 2018

What an incredible achievement! Our Exmoor Challenge teams this year not only had to contend with the usual undulating terrain but also scorching weather.

We awoke to beautiful clear blue skies, which meant two things: we’d need suncream and water. Lots of it!

Our two teams set off in blazing sunshine and found new teamwork skills and camaraderie between them through the glorious Exmoor landscape.

Thank you to all the parents and staff who have worked so hard over the past few weeks to help the children train. Sixteen miles in a day is no mean feat even for some adults and we are so proud of all our competitors.

Thank you as well for all your photos of the event. If you have any photos of our teams, why not email us? We’d love to include them in our Flickr gallery!

There’s a lovely article covering the whole event on the Devon Live website and the Rotary Results are posted here. As you can see, both our teams did magnificently, the best rankings yet!

Easter Service

Thank you to St Michael and All Angels for hosting our wonderful Easter Service this year. The children presented some wonderful poems, thoughts and prayers on Easter, including Stag class’s interpretation of the A-Z of the Easter Story. Everyone worked hard on their contributions. Squirrel Class did a lovely rendition of the “Seed Song” and Fox Class chose to tell the story of Easter with sign language.

We also really enjoyed seeing the final part of Open the Book’s Easter story, brilliantly acted out by the team. Thank you!

Thank you to the many parents and friends who came.

You can see some of the photos from the service here:

Easter Garden

Hedgehog class were proud to display their Easter Garden at St Michael and All Angels this Easter. They found the Easter story incredible – class discussions about how the tomb could have been found empty and what had happened led to some lovely comments. They all agreed that Easter is an inspiring time of year. You can see more of our Easter Service on the front page of the website.

Squirrels tell the tale of……

Beegu!!

 

Squirrels have been reading the story about Beegu, a friendly little creature who doesn’t belong on Earth and is a bit lost. The big Earth People don’t seem very friendly – but the little ones are a different matter!

Squirrel class did a great job of telling Beegu’s story in assembly, using their recounts written in class. We thoroughly enjoyed it – well done everyone!

Good News – School will be open again from Tuesday 20th March – South West Water have informed us that the message sent out to homes in Bampton will not have an impact on the school – We look forward to seeing you all !
