T.R.A.I.L on Teignmouth Seafront
This year we have made a sculpture for the art trail in Teignmouth. The sculpture features a piece of artwork from each class, Forest school, breakfast and after school club, and Little Acorns. Each class had a school value to represent on their piece and we are sure you will agree they did a fantastic job! All the children and staff, joined in by leaving their own mark or fingerprint on the artwork. Please pop down to the seafront and take a look, the sculpture is in the flower bed close to the pier. Please remember to vote for our sculpture once the voting opens. As soon as we get the voting information, we will pass it on to you.
Here are some great photos from the children who were at home learning on World Book Day.
It looks like you all had a great World Book Day!
Around the School in 13 Bubbles!
I was lucky enough to take a socially distanced journey around the school to take some photos of the children dressed up for World Book Day. There were some fantastic costumes from all year groups. Thank you to everyone who joined in both at school and at home. Photos of the children who are currently home learning will be added to the blog at a later date.

We are very grateful to The Helen Foundation for funding this event and the Pavilions Teignmouth for helping us to organise it.
Year 1 children were invited to the library after school where they enjoyed colouring in butterfly pictures and making butterflies. The session finished with the children listening to the ‘Monkey Puzzle’ story. There was some great audience participation.
The children all looked amazing in their World Book Day costumes, thank you to everyone that helped with the costumes.
In addition to dressing up for World Book Day, we held a Share a Million Stories assembly. The children sat and listened to a story called “Ameliaranne and the Green Umbrella” which is 100 years old! We also had a visitor from Morrisons in Teignmouth who presented us with a selection of books for our library, these were received by two of our librarians. Thank you very much Morrisons.
Foundation children were invited to the library after school where they enjoyed colouring in pictures of Zog and making Zog masks. The session finished with the children listening to the story of Zog with some great audience participation.
