Curriculum enrichment

Apple Day

To celebrate the harvest of apples from our school orchard, St Mary’s held an Apple Day where children took part in apple tasting activities and used an apple press to produce their own apple juice. Each class also produced printed artwork around the theme of apples.

Meldon's Fire Engine Visit

Meldon Class enjoyed a visit from some local fire fighters and their fire engine, as part of their ‘People who help us’ topic. The children particularly enjoyed hearing the siren and seeing how water from the hose helps to put out fires.

Healthy Humans Learning Afternoon

Fernworthy Class invited parents and carers into school to share some of their learning about ‘Healthy Humans.’ Each group had designed an activity or game for the adults to take part in during the afternoon. There were also some special dishes to taste, which had been designed and made by the pupils as part of the topic.

Community Dentist

The community dentist visited St Mary’s to teach pupils about how to care for their teeth and to help to protect them from decay. The disclosure tablets which were used by some pupils, enabled plaque to be revealed on their teeth and in turn, helped pupils to ensure that this was removed during brushing.


Doctor's Visit

Doctor Kate visited Fernworthy Class to talk about the human body and how it works.  Pupils also discussed  how to stay healthy and how to care for their bodies.
