Shine Star, Shine!
20 November 2017

Shine Star, Shine is a charming school nativity about a big star, who must show the way to the stable where a special baby has been born . The problem is, he just can’t shine. How will the shepherds and kings find their way?  With seven catchy songs, we hope that Shine Star, Shine will be a truly magical retelling of the nativity story that will delight young children and parents alike.

Performances on Thursday 14th December at 2pm and 5.15pm. Tickets available from the school office soon.

Mr Nelmes felt extremely proud to be able to take so many beautiful wreaths with him when we joined Devon and Cornwall Fire and Rescue service on Armistice Day at the Menin Gate in Ypres, playing his bagpipes with Exmouth and District Pipe Band.

Fantastic festival of Netball
16 November 2017

The sky’s the limit and our older children aim high to play their absolute best at the Exmouth schools netball tournament. Super sporty and wonderful values in action. The trick now is to take the resilience and determination from sport into other areas of learning and reach our full potential.

The children from year 3 and 4 really enjoyed the opportunity to play against other schools and get to grips with the rules of the game. Great job year 3/4!


School nurse team
16 November 2017

Working in partnership with outside agencies and in particular the school nursing team is immensely helpful and informative for our staff, children and families. Our most recent session provided information on how best to support young children with toileting.  They reviewed the 10 rules for toileting especially the importance of drinking water to support any problems.

They also shared the ERIC website including the kids section. It explains how poo and wee get made by your body and what you can do to keep your bowel and bladder fit and healthy. There’s also information on how to get help for your poo or wee problem, lots of fun stuff to do and videos to watch. You can even play the Let’s Talk About Poo game!
Thanks to the school nurse team. If parents/carers would like to get in contact the team at Withycombe Centre, 89 Withycombe Village Road, Exmouth EX8 3AE and 01395 226 730.

Year 5 children are learning about eclipses. Here they are carrying out an investigation using different sized ‘moons’. They are finding out how the size of the moon affects the distance at which an eclipse occurs. They will display their results on charts and will also use Excel to produce graphs. The learning involved skills covered in Numeracy lessons such as measuring distances and plotting charts. They will also learn about the diameter of spheres.
