Fernworthy Class

Robots and electricity

Fernworthy Class have studied electricity as part of their ‘Rise of the Robots’ topic.  As part of the work they studied ‘The Iron Man’ and investigated a ‘crime’ when the library was left in chaos after the Iron Man had visited the room!  Their skills relating to electrical circuits were also used to create their own light boxes at the end of term.

CAP sessions

Pupils across the school had the opportunity to take part in three CAP sessions (Child Assault Prevention), organised and run by a team from the Devon Community Project CAP UK. CAP’s mission is to keep children Safe, Strong and Free, so the team works with the whole school community towards reducing children’s vulnerability to abuse, equipping children with skills and strategies necessary to stay safe and to grow up to be strong and confident young people, respecting their own and others’ rights.

Carol Service and Crib Blessings

Pupils from Venford, Fernworthy and Burrator all took part in our annual Carol Service in Buckfast Abbey Church. Each class also led a special Crib Blessing in each of the parish churches during December. Our Art Club kindly made sheep and angels to decorate the cribs with.

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.

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.
