Doing some mindfulness colouring….what better way to end a busy School day. All part of the Buckfast Abbey #take5 festival.

In their After School Activities this week Prep 3 have been working on making hand puppets. They took plenty of concentration and good hand eye co-ordination. The tasks proved rather tricky for some, but we all got there in the end! Good perseverance P3.
Today prep 5 took part in Buckfast Abbey’s Take 5 online festival. The children drew and walked labyrinths having thankful reflections. The children fed back that they found it calming to walk a labyrinth.

This week Prep 1 have been learning about the 5 senses. Today they got the chance to learn about the sense taste, and I think you will agree from the pictures they had fun!
In maths today Prep 1 have been investigating coins under £1, we were then challenged to add together either 2, 3 or 4 coins to work out the value, some very speedy addition has been happening this morning!
For the last two weeks Prep 1 have been designing and making robots with mechanical movement, also using card engineering. The class have loved learning these processes and had great fun making them into roman solders with swords, shields and daggers.

Today Prep 2 have been experimenting with equipment to enable them to make circuits to light up bulbs, make buzzers and work a fan. They successfully worked out how to do all of these things. Great fun was had by everyone! A lovely Science lesson to end the term.
Nursery and Prep Reception had an end of term treat. We went out and explored our Woodland area, made a wood medallion, searched for wood, learnt how to light a fire and even got the chance to roast marshmallows…….delicious!
This week we have been investigating the weight of different objects in our Maths lessons. Today we went on a journey around the school to find things that were ‘heavy’ or ‘light.’ The boys were very excited to find out that a big leaf was heavier than a stick! The investigating continues………..
The teachers have been taking advantage of the beautiful South Devon weather today and teaching some of their lessons outside. Prep Reception are exploring nature to learn about Maths, Prep 1 have been outdoors for their ICT lesson learning about algorithms and Prep 3 have had an outdoor music lesson.
