The children had so much fun taking part in a range of activities that were arranged by a number of organisations. These included students from the robotics department at Plymouth University, Ali and Rebecca from the Shark Trust and students from the University studying dentistry. The children also had the opportunity to experiment with magnets, electrical circuits and use high powered microscopes to analyse flowers and other various objects. It was an action packed morning full of excitement.
A huge 'THANK YOU' to all of the volunteers for their time and effort this morning. We very much appreciate your support.
On Friday 9th March we had athlete Robert Mitchell visit us at St Andrew's. All children were involved in completing a sponsored circuit course in the hall. It was a tough, but enjoyable challenge.
Bea impressed us with swimming 3000 meters in one go! An amazing achievement Bea, well done!
Congratulations to Sol, Ghalyah and Evie who all received certificates for their effort and hard work.
A huge 'Thank You' to Miss Slyfield who has been teaching in Year 3 for two terms. Good luck with your next placement, we will certainly miss you here at St Andrew's.
Children Around the World - Class Assembly
A stunning 'Around the World' assembly from the Year 3 children. They all sang, spoke and danced with such confidence. A super effort Year 3, well done! Here are a few photos to capture the moment.
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to the new Spring term. We hope that you've all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. We are all very excited by our new topic 'Children of the World'. Look out for our curriculum letter and poster coming shortly with details of the term ahead.

We had great fun making Anglo-Saxon shelters. A huge 'THANK YOU' to all the parents and grandparents who came in to assist. We could not have done it without your help.
Our 'Anglo -Saxon' Assembly
Our 'Anglo-Saxon' Themed Day
We had great fun carrying out a range of Anglo-Saxon activities throughout the day. We made vegetable stew and oatcakes, used looms to weave and enjoyed singing songs and feasting around a camp fire.
Internet Safety Day!
Year 3 loved dressing up as 'Coding Cat' to celebrate 'Internet Safety Day'.
'Be Safe, Be Seen'
We enjoyed coming to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and had fun completing the obstacle course.
Our Year 3 Anglo-Saxons
A huge thank you to all parents and guardians who have helped the children to create their 'Anglo-Saxon' costumes. They are all absolutely stunning! The children loved trying them on and posing for their photos. They'll have an amazing time at Escot next week wearing them.
Farewell Year 3! We will miss each one of you! We are looking forward to watching you grow in Year 4 and beyond, achieving so much.
We would like to say a huge 'thank you' to the parents for all your support throughout the year. We also really appreciate the lovely cards, letters, thoughtful comments and treats that we have received this week. It has been a privilege to be part of the childrens' learning journey and a pleasure getting to know our extended St. Andrew's families!
Best wishes for the future,
Mrs Dean, Miss Mann & Miss Jones.
Year 3 Spanish Day!
We had such fun visiting Lorenzo's restaurant for some delicious tapas food. A huge 'Thank You' to John's mum Jen for arranging our trip and to Jacob and Alex, the chefs who created our feast. Ana taught us the days of the week by teaching us a song and we were lucky enough to be taught some Flamenco dancing by the talented Miss Mallard. An amazing day all round!
Fun at Stoke Damerel Sports Event
Year 3 and 4 Residential to Magdalen Farm
We had such an amazing few days at Magdalen farm and were blessed with such wonderful weather. All the children were impeccably behaved, well mannered and a pleasure to take away. Activities included; orienteering, feeding the farm animals, watering and picking vegetables, collecting hen eggs, making sandwiches, building shelters in the woods and collecting and identifying river species. The children (and staff) had so much fun!
