Father Christmas Visited Shaugh Prior Primary

- Friday 17th December 2021



School Disco - Thursday 16th December 2021




During assembly time, the whole school found out about the Christian tradition of making a Christingle. They learned about what the different parts represent and worked beautifully in pairs to create one of their own; the older children helping the younger children with the fiddly bits! 'Most' children still had sweets on their Christingle by the end of the day to take home.


School Christmas Dinner - Wednesday 8th December 2021


A big thank you to Ali for producing such a lovely Christmas dinner - enjoyed by everyone.

Children In Need - Friday 19th November 2021


The children were invited to wear something yellow/spotty for the donation of £1 and if they wanted they could buy a Children In Need biscuit made by our very own Ali from our kitchen - thank you Ali the biscuits were beautiful and a real hit with all of us!


Thank you to everyone - we raised a grand total of £45!

Forest School - Tuesday 9th November 2021


Over the next few weeks, the children will be sharing the 'farm in a box' scheme. These resources have been provided by the charity Countryside Trust to highlight the importance of sustaining the environment and the link to farming.   


This week we discussed Food Waste and the Carbon Footprints that our food undertakes.  We certainly have low carbon footprints for our eggs at school, thanks to our chickens!


The children understood our local grown foods such as fruit and vegetables have low carbon footprints whereas meat such as steak was very high.  We talked about food waste in schools and discussed why Primary schools waste double the amount of food as Secondary schools! They had some great ideas!   Mrs Williams



Forest School -  Tuesday 2nd November 2021

What a glorious sunny afternoon we had on Tuesday for our Forest School session.


Class 1 perfected the art of weaving and decorated their outdoor area. They soon learnt the in and out process. This skill will improve their fine motor skills, enabling them to produce beautiful handwriting. 


Class 2 also created some amazing art work and we even had a weaved snowman. Following on from our previous term's topic on Volcanoes, Archie and Finlay wanted to show the class their creation from home and they had even brought in the materials needed for it to explode. The boys were able to describe how the plates move in their composite volcano. Well done Boys. Thank you for sharing that with us.    Mrs Williams

What a wet afternoon we had on Tuesday. Class 1 started the afternoon off with creating some amazing autumnal bouquets. They were keen to continue their magic spells with them!


Then Class 2 created some fire burning volcanoes using vinegar, bicarb, coke and mentos!  Some were more active than others! The children worked in small groups to build a mountain style volcano then choose which liquids and reactives to use.


The weather certainly had an Autumn feel to it today so after half term please remember some boots and waterproofs every Tuesday. Thank you. 

Harvest Festival at Shaugh Prior Church - Tuesday 12th October 2021


Thank you to all of the parents who came along to our Harvest festival on Tuesday and to all those who brought in food donations! Also a big thank you to Father Simon for leading the service!

It was lovely to come together for our first main school event since the relaxation of the COVID restrictions.


Well done to Class 2 for presenting your lovely posters and facts about harvestable produce. The children all did brilliantly, particularly when technology failed and they had to sing the majority of their song ‘A Cappella’- they carried on like professionals! 

Forest School - Tuesday 12th October


This week in Forest School we started our Witches topic and the children listened to a tale all about a witch who cast many incorrect spells!! The children then created their own magic wands and turned us all into all sorts of animals and things! They also had time to enjoy our new hammock. 

The older children was given the challenge of moving our new table, they had to work together and listen to each other. They worked out a great way to move it! 

See you next week for some volcano fun!

Again, we were so spoilt with our weather and the sun shone gloriously on Tuesday for Forest School. The children went on an explore around our grounds and made great keepsakes of their journey. The children made an assortment of crowns, wrist bands and leg bands. Sticking various leaves, flowers and twigs to them. 

Class 2 were keen to whittle again and show the members of staff their new skills. 

Let's hope the good weather continues.

It was just amazing to see all of the children back after our summer break. 

The children were enthusiastic as ever to get back outside and with the weather shining that's where we headed. 


Class 1 children were given the task of showing off their number skills by using twigs and leaves. We counted them, sorted them and ended up with them creating their own number sentences. Great job Class 1. 


Class 2 immediately went into 'Forest School' mode and dived into the woods to start work on their dens. The kindness and true team spirit that was shown was just a pleasure to watch. Well done Class 2. See you all next week.   Mrs Williams

Forest School Week Ending 22nd July 2021


Forest School was all wrapped up for the Summer term this week.


I shared a video with the children of where and when Forest School originated.  It was founded in Denmark and we watched some very small children climbing huge trees and whittling using sharp tools.


We then had some great discussions over taking risks and trusting people around us. As always, the children had some fantastic thoughts and ideas.


I hope everyone has a great summer and may the sunshine continue. See you in September. 



Whole School Disco and Class 2 Sleepover - Friday 16th July 2021


Whole School Wembury Beach Trip - Friday 9th July 2021


A fun filled day was had making sand sculptures, rock pooling and “paddling” – although some of us got really quite wet!  We were very fortunate with the weather as when we arrived at the beach it was raining but once we got off the coach we did not have any more rain for the rest of the day – lucky Shaugh Prior Primary!
