Butterdon - Rock Anthems

Butterdon have been looking at rock anthems in their music this term.  On Friday they entertained everyone with their performance of Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" at the end of celebration assembly.

Butterdon - STEM Projects

Butterdon have been using their knowledge of the properties of materials to design a container that will keep a drink cold.  After their initial tests to discover which material was the best insulator, today they made their designs.  Next week they will test them to see which design is the most effective.

Butterdon - Tudor Times

Butterdon's topic homework challenge was to show what they had learnt about Tudor times in a creative way.

Isabelle's cake showing a range of Tudor punishments was truly creative, as well as being delicious!

Well done Isabelle for taking up the challenge!

Choir @ Powderham Castle

The school choir were lucky enough to have been invited to perform at the Food Festival at a Powderham Castle last weekend.  They sang a number of songs both with and without Bovey  Tracey Primary School and sounded wonderful on beautiful sunny Sunday. Thank you to Mr and Mrs Downton and all the parents who brought their children along.

Mardon - Simple Circuits

Mardon enjoyed working with their learning partners to make a simple circuit with a buzzer and a switch. This was then used in a quiz all about electricity, they had to buzz in if they knew the answer. They have learnt how to make a simple circuit, how to draw the basic components in a circuit diagram, how to keep safe around electricity and they have tested different materials to see if their predictions were right about them being an insulator or conductor. I'm sure they might even correct you if you ask for a battery...ask your child what a single battery should be referred to scientifically!

Football Festival

The girls team played brilliantly, with no subs they had no chance of a rest, but put everything into it and got a great result winning the competition.
