Year 3/4 Base 1
On Wednesday, 22nd May, children from Year 3/4 Base 1 took part in a virtual reality experience. They were taken on a trip back in time to that of Ancient Egypt. The met their virtual reality guide, a robot, and from there, witnessed mummies, the River Nile and Ancient Egyptian tombs inside the famous Egyptian pyramids! Children also created characters that they would like to see within their own versions of virtual reality. All in all, children had a wonderful experience, and the virtual reality sessions sparked some lively debate and opinion between all who took part.
Thursday, May 2nd saw children from Year 3/4, Base 1 and 2 take part in a fundraising afternoon to support class trips and to buy resources to help their learning.
The children eagerly participated in a variety of sporting activities, non stop all afternoon! Vigorous activity was the order of the day. There was continuous skipping and hopscotch to name two. ASDA, Newton Abbot, kindly sponsored refreshments keeping a spring in everyone’s step.
The children of Year 3/4 would like to thank all of those who sponsored them.
A massive thank you and well done to all the children involved as they really worked their socks off!!!

On Monday 8th October year 3 and 4 went on a trip to Dawlish Warren. We had been learning lots about our Coastlines. We met the rangers at the educational hub and they taught us about how our coast is formed. We had lots of fun building our sand castles and using different natural materials to protect them from erosion. We got to Dawlish Warren just in time to see the Flying Scotsman, however Mrs Cousins couldn’t get her camera out quick enough!
I enjoyed making sandcastles. I learnt that if homes are on the beach the waves can go on the sand and the house can come off the sand.
I enjoyed making sandcastles. The waves make cliffs collapse.
We learnt that sea defenses can help the waves in a storm.
