Robin class and Pre-School went to Membury Post Office this week to find out how a post office is run as part of our 'People that help us' topic. Many thanks to Sharon the postmistress who explained the process of posting and receiving letters to the children. The children enjoyed buying their own stamps and posted their letters to Father Christmas in the post box.

The children had a wonderful day on Wednesday seeing ‘Dick Whittington’ at the Northcott Theatre. They particularly enjoyed seeing a play being performed on a much larger scale than the Nativity and for some experienced being in a theatre for the first time. We will be studying the traditional story ‘Dick Whittington’ next week as a follow up activity.

Owls recently undertook a 'Membury through the Ages' topic during which they created a fantastic display for the Membury History Society Exhibition going back from Roman times to present day. As a follow up to this Nick Yool and Jenny Beaman from the History Society took the class on a guided 'Membury through the Ages' walk this week. Owls learned some very interesting historical facts about Membury and enjoyed eating lunch at the Iron Age Hill Fort.

A big thank you to Chantelle Souttar for coming to talk to the children about how the ambulance call handling system works and her job as a call handler. The children enjoyed asking many questions about the ambulance service and how taking the call results in an ambulance in attendance in an emergency situation.

We had a very special visitor in school today... Pudsey the Bear! 

Pudsey came to visit us ahead of Children in Need appeal week which runs from Monday 13th November until the big show on Friday 17th. We raised a fantastic £61 last year for Children in Need and hope that we can do the same this year. Details of our fundraising plans for this year will be sent home shortly.

Robin class and Pre-School had a great time today finding out how butter is made. We shook the tub with double cream in it until the contents separated in to a solid and a liquid and then put the solid butter in to the fridge. We enjoyed the butter on crackers at afternoon play!

Yesterday evening we had an art exhibition for the local community, which was very well attended by over 60 local residents and parents. It was fantastic to be able to showcase our artwork, based on a light theme to so many people. Many thanks to our governors Naomi Doble and Jenny Beaman and to Marie and Will Handel for all of their help. Click on the header for more photos.

On Tuesday our KS2 children went to Chardstock Primary to participate in a Tchoukball tournament.  Other academies from our Multi Academy Trust were also in attendance.  Tchoukball is a fast hand ball sport consiting of a team of 7 players that incorporates key sporting skills; athleticism, concentration, respect for oneself and the opposition and teamwork. We came second in the tournament, which was a great achievement as we had the youngest team in the tournament being a whole of Key Stage team. Well done Membury!!

The children really enjoyed learning about the Christingle service tradition and making christingles last week. In church on Sunday many of the children took part in the Christingle service with the oranges that they had assembled. Click on the header for more photos.

We had a fantastic morning yesterday spent at Seaton Jurassic Centre. We explored the centre and found out about the jurassic coastline and history of the local area. After this we had a very informative follow up talk from Lyme Bay Outreach, who visited us to talk about sustainable fishing two weeks ago. This time they taught us about the nutritional benefits of fish in our diet and had a variety of activities for us to complete. A huge thank you to Lyme Bay Fisheries and Conservation Reserve in partnership with Seaton Jurassic and funding from Marks and Spencer. Click on the header for more photographs.
