Shepherd's Story - Storytelling Session

Meldon Class and Fernworthy Class both visited the Guest Hall at the Abbey for a special storytelling session with Alison and Anna from the Education Centre.  The story was told from the shepherd’s point of view and then was followed by making some shepherd cards.


Farmwise 2017

Pupils from Fernworthy and Burrator Classes enjoyed a ‘hands on’ visit to the Devon Farmwise event held at Westpoint Arena, as part of their Harvest focus this half term.

The children took part in a range of interactive activities which took place  in themed zones such as dairy, arable, environment, vegetables, sheep, fruit and seeds and pigs. The pupils were able to ask questions and find out a bit more about where their food comes from and the different types of farming that exist in Devon.

GP visit

Dr Kate, a local GP, came into Fernworthy class to share some of her thoughts about how we can stay healthy. The pupils have been learning about ‘Healthy Humans’ so invited her into class to find out more about their bodies and good health.

Oral health sessions

To fit in with Fernworthy class’ topic, Healthy Humans, the school was visited by a dental professional who talked to them about how to keep their teeth and gums healthy.  Some children had the opportunity to also use the disclosure tablets which enabled them to see exactly where the plaque was on their teeth.
