Well done to the Redland Netball Team who won the Level 2 tournament at Hardenhuish on Friday 6th March. The children played exceptionally well, showing good team spirit and commitment. Congratulations Team Redland!
We have sent home advice on Coronavirus from Public Health England. The link can be found on the Letters to Parents page. As a school, our emphasis is on good hygiene and handwashing.
Redland hockey teams competed in the Level 2 tournament at the Dome next to Sheldon School last week. After the first round, the B team were joint second in their pool; the A team were joint first. The A team went on to play a strong King’s Lodge team in the final, eventually losing 1-0. Megan C scored in the final game, but it was disallowed due to using the reverse stick. Mrs Keates would like to see the VAR!!
All the children played really well and were impressive as always. Special thanks to Mrs Dowd and Mrs Glover who helped, and to all the parents who came and supported.
Well done to Millie P, Jordan M, Louis S, Archie J, Thomas B, Riley H, Joshua D, Hannah G, JJ L, Cameron C, Megan C, Violet S, Maddie C, Charlotte G, Leo B, Kacy W, John H, Oliver D, Trystan S and Lily L.
Many thanks to the Lewis family who treated the rabbits like royalty during their stay. They had a ball!
We will be having an Open Day on Monday 7th October for families with children who will be starting school in September 2020.
Session times are:
9:30-10:15 / 11:00-11:45/1:30-2:15
We will be holding a MacMillan coffee morning from 9.15 – 10.15 in the school hall on Friday 27th September! We’d love it if you could join us for a cuppa and a slice of cake and help us raise funds for a brilliant charity.
Yesterday was the final full day, and it certainly was lots of fun for the group. The day started with cooked breakfast consisting of bacon, hash browns, beans and toast. This was the perfect fuel for their last day. Each group then completed the carousel of activities. The activities included: climbing, archery, zip wire, crate stacking and a low ropes challenge. Lunch was homemade pizza with salad which went down extremely well, with most people having seconds. Dinner was sausages with sweet potato mash and vegetables. After dinner, the children headed out to the Lee Abbey field for a bonfire. The children enjoyed star gazing and reflecting on the week, and all the fun they have had. It was such a lovely way to end the trip. This morning they have had croissants and are currently packing all their belongings before starting the return journey back to Redland. They have missed you all and can’t wait to see you!
Another fantastic day was had by all at Lee Abbey. Yesterday kicked off with a selection of delicious pastries- quite the treat. This was followed by a picturesque walk to Lynmouth. When they got there, everyone had a lovely picnic lunch. When they returned, everyone refuelled with cherry cake before heading out for the afternoon activities. These were climbing, low ropes and archery. Dinner was delicious – burgers in buns with chips. As you can imagine, this went down very well with the children.
After dinner, the children got into their pyjamas and got cosy in the ‘cave,’ ready for movie night.
This morning, everyone woke up with smiles on their faces, looking forward to a cooked breakfast. Everyone is eager to get started with activities on the last full day at Lee Abbey, but they are certainly looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
The first full day at Lee Abbey did not disappoint. Yesterday was an action-packed day! The day started with a delicious cooked breakfast including eggs, hash browns, beans and toast. Alongside this, there were cereals and porridge to help fuel the day ahead. After breakfast, the children were split into 3 groups. Each group did a different activity and these will be rotated throughout the rest of the week. These included flying through the woodland on the zip wire, reaching new heights on the climbing wall, as well as crate stacking as high as possible. So much fun! Lunch was a choice of tomato pasta or macaroni cheese, with a range of fresh salad. Dinner was jerk chicken with couscous and vegetables – delicious. The summer fruit cheesecake for pudding went down extremely well.
After dinner, the children tackled the egg challenge. They used a set of resources to create a container which would protect the egg when dropped from a height. Some were successful, others… well they weren’t quite as successful and the group were expecting scrambled egg for breakfast!
Everyone certainly slept well after that action-packed day.
This morning was a selection of scrumptious pastries. Everyone is going for a walk and a picnic to enjoy the glorious sunshine. Check back tomorrow for the next update.
The children and staff all arrived safely yesterday at the wonderful Lee Abbey. Upon arrival, bags were dropped off, and the group were whisked to Lynton. Here they enjoyed the beautiful coastal scenery on the walk down to Lynmouth where they had lunch. Unfortunately the weather was a bit drizzly but that didn’t stop everyone enjoying the fudge and gift shops!
After exploring Lynmouth, the group boarded the cliff railway to begin the journey back to Lynton- much quicker than walking! Everyone then hiked back to Lee Abbey, enjoying the fresh air and wonderful views.
Last night, chilli was on the menu and it was delicious. Even better, it was followed by ice cream. To wrap up the day, there was a tour around the Lee Abbey grounds and then the rest of the evening was spent in the sports hall doing some team building games. All was quiet as 34 very tired children (and 4 even more tired adults) slept extremely well!
This morning, the children are having a breakfast of scrambled eggs, beans and hash browns. Today’s activities are low ropes, crate stacking, zip wire and the climbing wall.
More news tomorrow.
