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 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!
Sports Day - Thursday 8th July 2021
Week Ending Friday 2nd July
Another afternoon where the true Devonshire weather surprised us and the forecasted rain never appeared, which is always a bonus for our outdoor learning sessions!
Class 1 completely engaged in the Stick Man story. They made their own version and acted out their own stories. What adventures they all had!
Class 2 also showed off their amazing creativity and produced some beautiful photo frames using the natural materials around us. Stunning afternoon thank you Shaugh Prior. See you next week.
