The Best Bits of 2012-2013
We went on a Bear Hunt
A big thank you to all of the Ducklings who came on our Bear hunt yesterday; a fantastic day was had by all. The Ducklings staff were so proud of how well everybody used their listening ears and looking eyes on our trip! We certainly think it was those listening ears and looking eyes that helped us to find the toy Bear hiding in the tent. We look forward to continuing our retelling of the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ today.
Our Adventure With Percy the Park Keeper
Wow, we had a very exciting time visiting Percy the Park Keeper on Wednesday. We explored his woodland, found some of his woodland animals that were hiding and even had our snack in a tent. Percy enjoyed meeting us so much that he came in to the Nursery to read us one of his stories. When you come into the Nursery see if you can spot our Percy the Park Keeper’s hut role play area and some of the children’s painting of Percy’s animals that will be up for you to see. All of the adults in the Ducklings were so proud of how well the Ducklings walked to the woodland, used their listening ears and shared their fantastic ideas. Well done everybody!
I have uploaded some fantastic pictures from last weeks charity ‘Welly Walk’ that we enjoyed. The children were fantastic in working as a team and looking after one another. The enjoyment they had is clear to see in these pictures.
Meeting Prince Charles and Camilla
Late yesterday year 1 were invited to welcome Prince Charles and Camilla to Brixham. We had a such a fantastic morning! A special thank you goes to Thomas Hart and Carys MacKellar for presenting Camilla with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Everyone behaved impeccably and even the policemen commented on how sensible we were.
Brixham Lifeboat Station Visit
We had a lovely time visiting the Lifeboat Station and finding out some amazing facts. We learned about how fast the Lifeboat could go and that the Lifeboat can self right itself in five and a half seconds if it capsizes. We were lucky enough to get onto the lifeboat to look around and see what is onboard.
Class 3 had fun performing their nonsense poems.
The Iron Man
Class 3 have enjoyed reading “The Iron Man” by Ted Hughes. We created fantastic Iron Men from Lego. We had to co- operate and work together in groups, we used our imagination to create the scrapyard where the Iron Man lived. We are writing our own Iron Man stories which we will be sharing with other classes.
World War 2 Assembly
We celebrated the end of our World War 2 learning with a special assembly which the parents joined us for, have a look at some of the photos.
We were very lucky as Fiona won tickets for all our class to see the Cinderella Pantomime at the Princess Theatre in Torquay. We had a fantastic afternoon dressed up in our party clothes and Jacob from our class even managed to make it up on to the stage.

Regional Tag Rugby Competition
13th Best in the South West
Taunton school was on show this week, Wednesday 19th June, when they hosted the Regional Tag Rugby Finals. Twenty schools, including the Torbay Champions Brixham Church of England Primary School, from across the whole of the South West of England eagerly gathered to complete for a place to play at Rugby School in Birmingham. All with the ultimate goal of playing at the home of English rugby, Twickenham!
On a glorious day early in June Brixham and Churston Sports Partnership hosted the annual Tag Rugby Tournament for local primary schools at Brixham RFC. It was here that Brixham Church of England Primary School started their road to success, although it was not an easy ride. Brixham breezed through their early matches until their encounter with reigning champions, Oldway. This was a tightly fought match with plenty of flare and skill on show. After ten gruelling minutes Brixham were victorious and crowned Champions of Torbay. This meant that they would progress with the runners-up to the County Finals in Cullompton.
Devon RFU and the RFU working together with Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and Child Victims of Crime then organised the County Finals which were held at Cullompton RFC. It was at this tournament Brixham C of E finished 4th securing a place at the Regional Finals in Taunton.
This week there was an early start for ‘Team Brixham’ who were dressed to impress in their brand new kit sponsored by Mr B. Lovell of Lovell Rugby. They travelled up the M5 on route to Taunton with one thing on their minds. Following their pool matches Brixham found themselves playing in the Bowl Competition where they continued to face fierce opposition.
“The skill levels of all teams at this competition are very impressive. I think my team did themselves proud today, and in the other tournaments along our journey to the Regionals,” expressed team captain Bradley McKee.
Bringing the day to a close Brixham did not go home empty handed as they were the Bowl Competition winners.
