Dino-riffic week!

The children have been extremely busy this week working on their art and topic about dinosaurs. They have made interesting fact files and are working towards their final art piece with lots of practice of drawing different dinosaur parts.

We’ve been really impressed with the trips to Lyme Regis and the home learning generally. Keep it up!

Welcome back!

Our summer term has got off with a roaring start with our dinosaur topic. The children have been eager to share what they know already. We are looking forward to seeing what he children produce for their home learning this week.

Now the weather is getting nicer, your children will need to have their P.E kits (including P.E shoes that fit) so we can take advantage of our outdoor facilities. Please see the school website for details of the school P.E kit expectations. 

Read to succeed: This is underway and children are expected to bring in their reading record books on a Monday morning with at least 3 signed entries. This means they get a ticket to put in the box which enters them into a half termly draw for a free book! Please help your child ‘read to succeed’.

Happy Easter!

This week the children finished making their books in DT and they got to read them to the Foundation children. It was clear that everyone enjoyed this.

Your child may have come home with a colouring competition sheet following the SUSTRANS assembly today. The deadline for entries is 3rd May 2019.

Sadly, some of the children’s toys did not go home with their owners today. If you find a toy that you don’t recognise, please could it be returned to school after the holidays.

Have a fantastic break and we look forward to welcoming you back to school after Easter.


Easter Painting Workshop

Last week, Exwick Heights hosted a well attended Easter craft workshop. The weather was extremely kind so we were able to use our outdoor classroom in the nature area.

Children and their grown ups painted suncatchers and hung them from the tree near our friendship bench. They look wonderful and catch the sunlight beautifully!

Thank you everyone for coming, it was a great success.
