2018/2019 EVENTS

Exmoor Zoo Workshop Visit:  At the start of Term 5 Reception and Year 3 classes enjoyed a visit from Exmoor Zoo.  Year 3 learnt all about tropical rainforest habitat as well as meeting some of the creatures.  "I loved that we could see a scorpion up close and that it changed colour under an infra-red lamp." Emme L-N

The Exmoor Zoo staff both complimented on how well behaved all of the pupils were and they enjoyed their visit to St Martin’s School.


Chartwells Smoothie Workshop: Class 3C enjoyed a smoothie Workshop courtesy of Chartwells, our catering provider. They created unique smoothies using fruit and vegetables, some which they had never even tasted before! The children thought it was a great way to get some of their 5-a-day!


Warburtons Workshop: The Year 3 children participated in a ‘Healthy Eating and Sandwich Making Workshop’ provided by Warburtons. The children all learnt how to create the ultimate healthy delicious sandwich!

Year 3 Historical Walk around Worle: The Year 3 children had a wonderful walk led by Mr Champ and Mr Watts from Worle History Society. They walked the local area discovering what life was like many years ago! We were amazed to learn that there is evidence of Mesolithic living near the quarry.

Thank you to the parent and grandparent helpers who enabled us to do this interesting walk!


Year 3 Christingle and Carols St Martin’s Church 20th December: Year 3 led a wonderful Christingle Service at St Martin's Church yesterday evening. The children spoke beautifully explaining the story of the Christingle. Miss Jewell made the service extra fun wearing a memorable costume. Thank you to Rev Julie Fleming and the Church for making us all feel so welcome!


Iron Age WOW Day:  On 9th November, the Year 3 children all enjoyed their Iron Age WOW day which formed part of their ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’ topic.  The children had a visitor, Matt Russell, who talked about life in the Iron Age and put on a Warrior Training session. 


In the afternoon the children designed Iron Age shields which they then painted.  It was an amazing day for all the Year 3 children.  Thank you again to our parents/carers for their creative costume making efforts and support.  


Raise The Roof Term 2: Year 3 and 4 classes were joined by children from Becket Primary School to sing songs about ‘School Life’.  The event was led by Anne Clough  from North Somerset Music Service.  This was a fantastic morning of singing together.  The children had a thoroughly enjoyable morning and all sang beautifully. 


Year 3 Bee Keeping:  The Year 3 classes welcomed Fearne's Grandad, Dave, to talk to them all about Bee Keeping. They were fascinated by all the different facts he shared in addition to seeing protective clothing and seeing the bees themselves!  What an amazing experience. 


Why not read the Year 3 ‘Bee Amazing Fact’ books made by the Year 3 pupils coming to our school library soon.


Year 3 Egyptian Exhibition: The Year 3 children completed their Ancient Egypt Topic by holding an Ancient Egyptian Exhibition in the School Hall.   Parents were invited to come along to school to share the Year 3 classes Egyptian  models, hieroglyphics and artwork on Friday 20th July.
