Life Skills

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.

Parliamentary Education

St Mary’s pupils have learnt more about the way in which the government works through a visit from the South West Regional Outreach Officer for Parliament’s Education Service.  The visit enabled pupils to improve their understanding of democracy and Parliament.  Following the visit, Burrator Class held its own parliamentary session to discover more about the democracy process in England.

Burrator's 'Wellbeing' Week and Residential Trip

This year Burrator Class took part in a number of activities as part of their residential trip. They visited Haven Banks Centre at Exeter Canal, where they learnt how to paddle board (although the water was cold!) and how to build a raft. Pupils also went to Dynamic Adventures where they abseiled, carried out rock climbing, archery, went on zip wires and challenged themselves on the high ropes. Stover Country Park was also visited and pupils found lots of interesting wildlife in the ponds and woodland areas – including a large toad! The week also included an inter-school Kwik cricket tournament, first aid course, work with a local artist and a bake off competition!  Click on the link to see some of the activities they took part in: ‘Well-being’ Week and Residential Trip.


Enterprise Fair

Burrator Class helped to organise the Enterprise Fair again this year, where pupils ran stalls to generate money for the class and for charity. Each group of pupils in Burrator Class were given £5 each, with which to try and generate more money by running a stall at the Summer Fair.  Friends of St Mary’s (FOSMs) also organised a bouncy castle and stalls for the afternoon. With the money raised, some went to charity and the rest was used to host a ‘Pyjama Day’ for Burrator Class. Pupils came into school in their pyjamas, watched films, ate popcorn and drank ‘mocktails.’
