A Message From Mr Morton

What a fun filled half term it has been here at Buckland St Mary C of E Primary School. As I walk around the classes each morning I am always energised by the marvellous activities and enthusiasm that permeates out of every classroom. The children are always so keen to share all of the amazing activities they are working on and the great learning they are engaged in. Ash class have taught me lots of new things about growing things from seeds, Oak class have blown me away with their technical understanding of the water cycle and river systems and Beech class have wow’d me with their geographical understanding of Costa Rica and how to dissect a plant into its component parts! It makes me wish that I was still a school child (feel free to add in a sarcastic comment under your breath here!).

Our wear it wild day was a success, raising over £70 for the WWF. Thank you to Max and the whole school council for making this event possible. You all looked amazing in your animal costumes!

Our children really do shine their light brightly over our community and the wider world around us. Have a well deserved and restful break and we look forward to welcoming you all back after the half term break.

The Redstart Performing Arts Festival 2022

The Redstart Performing Arts Festival 2022 The Redstart Learning Partnership Performing Arts Festival For the first time, all 10 of The Redstart Learning Partnership’s (TRLP) primary schools will be coming together to celebrate performing arts across the trust. The children from TRLPs 10 schools all based in Somerset and Devon will have two workshops one singing and one for dance with industry professionals Carolyn Tudor and Stuart Chaffer, as well as rehearse their own pieces to perform in a variety show on the professional theatre stage for their families in the afternoon. There will be approximately 170 children attending the day, all enjoying this wonderful opportunity.  All of the children involved in the event will be performing a song together at the end of the performance.  The song that has been chosen is this year’s Sing Up Day song and is called ‘Love as our Guide'.  It is a rousing, uplifting, and optimistic pop anthem, exploring themes of kindness and of being a person you can be proud of. In addition to this to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee the TRLP have also arranged a special Jubilee Art Competition for the children.  The winners will be chosen by Suzanne Flack (CEO of TRLP), Ethne Staniland (Subject Leader of Art for TRLP) and Susan Browning (Somerset artist). The winning artists will have their entries displayed in the Brewhouse Theatre foyer for all to enjoy. Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
