Exeter Cathedral Choir event

On Saturday afternoon, 20 Year 4 and Year 5 children took part in a special concert at Exeter Cathedral, as part of an outreach programme. Exwick Heights joined five other schools, the Devon County Junior Choir and the Cathedral Choristers to perform three songs together and one by themselves. The children behaved impeccably all afternoon and sung beautifully throughout each and every item. We were enormously proud of them and the concert, performed to a huge audience at the end of the afternoon, was enjoyed by all and was a wonderful event to be part of. Very well done Exwick Heights!

Year 4 Blog- including Aquarium trip photos.

Since Easter, Year 4 have on a school trip to Plymouth Aquarium. We took part in a workshop about coral from around the world where we learnt about sea temperature, salinity and ph levels. We also learnt about the dangers to coral and the creatures living in the sea.

At the Aquarium, we saw lots of different marine animals including sharks, sting rays, starfish, eels, octopi, jellyfish, turtles, clown fish, puffer fish, crabs and a range of tropical fish. All of year 4 enjoyed the trip, learnt lots about the sea and would love to go again. It will help us learn more about our Australia topic.

In maths we have been learning about money and have just started our new topic on statistics. In English, we have continued preparing to write an animal story and in science we have started our topic of living things and their habitats.
