Week beginning October 15th
On Monday Trinity and Lundy Classes had a science day. We took part in a carousel of activities which included: Earth and space, Safety with electricity, learning about electric circuits and symbols. It was an active day of learning.
This week we had a very inspiring visit from an ex-Instow pupil - Yazzy. She talked to us about her years at Instow School, and how the talent shows and Christmas plays inspired her to become a singer! She particularly remembered playing the role of Nancy in a production of Oliver! Yazzy explained her musical journey and how she has now recorded three albums and performed supporting Paloma Faith at the Glastonbury Extravaganza! We really enjoyed hearing Yazzy sing and joining with her to sing 'Mamma Mia' and 'This Is Me!' - a fantastic afternoon.
Writing inspired by our Bristol residential.

Walk, watch and wonder
Are you scared of heights?If not then come and visit Brunel’s brilliant bridge.
Walk -walk where millions of people have walked before,
Watch -watch all of the lights below you,
Wonder -wonder what it was like to build this brilliant bridge,
Look down at the shimmering lights in the water more then 300 feet away!
Did you know one day a lady jumped off the bridge in a wedding dress - because of the dress she floated down!

Wednesday 3rd October
Today we have enjoyed a visit from the author and illustrator Tom McLaughlin, some of the children were lucky enough to have their books signed by him. It was inspirational to hear that although he is dyslexic he has made a career out of writing and creativity. His talk inspired us to try some illustrating for ourselves .
Week beginning Monday 24th September
This week was our long awaited residential trip to Bristol. It has been a week of new experiences, fun, learning and exploration. There are so many highlights that you will hear about in the coming weeks but some of our favourites include: seeing all of the animals at the zoo (especially Red Pandas!), all of the wonderful meals at the Youth Hostel (cooked breakfasts... yum), going on board the SS Great Britain, a ferry ride around the harbour and so many more! The children were great company and it was a delight to receive compliments from members of the public and staff at the Youth Hostel about their manners and positivity. Some of the hundreds of pictures we took are shown below but there will be more to see and hear about soon!
This week we have designed and painted our own 'Reading Rocks'. Each time we complete a 'Reading Rocks Challenge' we can put one of the rocks in the box - once the class have reached 20 rocks we will have a reward! Keep reading Trinity Class and remember those challenges!
Trinity Class - if you have read this page please come and say 'Reading Rocks' to a Trinity Class adult to earn 2 house points!
This week we have listened to some fantastic narrative poems, Matilda by Hillaire Belloc, The Watch and our particular favourite Chocolate Cake by Michael Rosen. We found that each poet had used 'writers' tools' to create their story style poem; we also discovered that each of these poems had a moral or a piece of advice for the reader!
We have had another great week getting to know our Reception buddies - we even accompanied them to their first celebration assembly on Friday!
On Friday we enjoyed an afternoon of art as we prepared for next week's Harvest Festival. Our new IPads proved to be an invaluable tool as we researched foods that had been discovered by explorers!
Trinity Class - if you have read this section, come and say 'Extreme Explorers' to a Trinity adult and you will earn two house points!
Welcome back to Trinity Class, we hope that you have had a wonderful summer holiday!
In Trinity Class we have made a great start to the year - today we met with our Reception buddies to introduce ourselves and share a story; there are some lovely photos of this on Crow Point class page.
We also had a treasure hunt around the school with cunning clues about our topic - we had to use all the evidence to discover our new theme! Look at the photos to see if you can work out the connection between the objects.
