Roald Dahl Day 13th September 2017
On what would have been his 101st birthday, children from Reception, Year One and Year Two took part in a wide variety of learning that celebrated the wonderful writing of Roald Dahl.
In Reception children took inspiration from the book The Enormous Crocodile and made playdough crocodiles and practised their cutting and colouring skills. They also had the opportunity to practice mark making on bookmarks.
Esio Trot was the inspiration for the children in Year One; they measured tortoises, wrote poetry and made tortoises from playdough.
Year Two children found out about the life of Roald Dahl, talked about their favourite books and enjoyed Quentin Blake's wonderful illustrations.
Poppy Wave - Plymouth Hoe
On Monday 2nd October children from our Forces Friends Group visited the Naval War Memorial on Plymouth Hoe to see, and think about, the Poppy Wave.
"Poppies: Wave, a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks, was originally seen at the Tower of London as part of the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red. It can currently be seen at the CWGC Plymouth Naval Memorial.
The memorial is situated centrally on the Hoe, which looks directly towards Plymouth Sound. Commemorating the almost 7,300 servicemen and women of the First World War who have no known grave and the seamen of the Royal Navy who sailed from Plymouth, the First World War panels also bear the names of sailors from Australia and South Africa."
