Enterprise Fete 2017

Each pupil in Burrator Class was handed £5 at the start of the week and given the challenge of working as a team to generate a profit from their money at the school Enterprise Fete.  Teams had to present their ideas to their fellow pupils and persuade them that their idea was the best.  In the end, each group came up with a range of imaginative ways of generating income which included games, silent auctions, tombola, nail painting and transfer tattoos.  Pupils spent the week preparing their stalls, buying good and contacting local businesses asking for donations of prizes for the event.  Friends of St Mary’s (FOSMs) also supported the event with a variety of stalls and a bouncy castle.

Transport Trip

As part of their Transport topic, children from Meldon Class enjoyed a train ride and visit to the Rare Breeds Farm in Totnes.  For many of our Foundation Stage pupils, this was their first ever school trip!

Butterfly release

Venford Class have been taking care of some caterpillars as part of their ‘minibeasts’ topic.  Pupils were excited to discover that the caterpillars turned into chrysalises, which after a short time in hatched into beautiful butterflies that were released in the school grounds.


Fernworthy Wildlife Day

Over the past six weeks pupils have been studying habitats and learning about some of the world’s most endangered wildlife and how they can play their part in protecting their environment.  The children celebrated the end of the topic with a special ‘Wear it Wild’ wildlife day, where staff and pupils dressed up as some of the animals that they have been learning about.  They also baked and decorated animal themed cakes, which were sold to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund.  In total, pupils managed to raise over £60 for this important cause.
