Welcome back Powderham!

Hello Powderham class!


I hope you have all had an exciting Christmas 🙂 I’m sure you had a visit from a special person and I’m looking forward to hearing about the different things you have been doing over the holiday.


When we come back to school in January we have some exciting learning to do!

We are going to be introduced to Old Bear and his friends who appear in a range of books by an author called Jane Hissey.

We will be meeting lots of characters, finding out about their adventures and then creating our own story with new characters.



Do you have a favourite old bear? Bring them in to meet us!


I look forward to seeing you all in January 🙂 Enjoy the rest of the holiday!


happy new year

Year 1 take over Westcliff rocks

Year 1 had a very exciting morning today. After a few technical difficulties, Year 1 were able to read their  amazing ‘Dear Zoo’ stories in a special radio show, broadcasting from our radio booth at school.

Miss Thomas and I are incredibly proud of all the children in Powderham and Coryton classes. They have all worked really hard to write their own stories using capital letters and full stops.

If you weren’t able to listen in this morning, you can hear a recording of the session using the link below. It takes a few minutes to sort out the sound so keep listening.

Well done Powderham and Coryton 🙂
