Whole School

Last term, the children chose to support two charities through their fundraising. The charities selected were The Derriford Hospital Children's Cancer Services and Jeremiah's Journey. The children chose these charities because they have supported children and families from our school and we have therefore experienced first hand the great work that they do. We raised a grand total of £868 which was split equally between the charities. This morning in worship, we were really pleased to present the cheques to representatives of both charities. A huge thank you once again to all parents, families, friends and children who made a donation.

Science Week

On Tuesday, March 8th, 12 eggs were delivered, in an incubator, from Living Eggs! By Wednesday morning we had our first chick and by Friday, all twelve eggs had hatched. Almost every child in the school got to witness a chick hatching and many were able to also hold the chicks.

In Key Stage 2, the children took part in a variety of investigations around eggs. The eggs were kindly donated by Roborough Tesco and the children really enjoyed taking part in 'egg drops' where they used their knowledge of pressure and forces to design a way to drop an egg without it breaking. Great fun but often messy! Lots of scientific experiences were enjoyed by the children.

The chicks have now moved on to their permanent homes.

Remembrance Day 

 

All of the poppies that have been worn this year at Bickleigh Down, have been collected and displayed in our school entrance. They have now been taken down to the War Memorial at Bickleigh. The photo below shows the display of poppies that was in our school entrance.
