School Fair - 21st June
10 Teachers - 1 Will Be Gunged!!
To help raise essential funds for Nayamba School in Zambia (one of our chosen charities this year) 10 of our wonderful teachers have 'volunteered' to be gunged at our annual Summer Fair on Friday 21st June. Votes are 50p each, with no limit to how many votes you can make but if you would like to see what the teachers themselves think you sure do, please watch our video.
All funds raised will go towards essential reading books that will be hand delivered by 2 families who are visiting the school and will be setting up a reading scheme and training the teachers to develop reading in school.

Rainbow Day- Canada Day
During Rainbow Day we looked at where Canada was, the landscape, and size
of the country. We then talked about the origins of the maple leaf and made our
own. We finally hung them on the tree as you can see. Please come and visit 6H
to see it.
The school band, '621' have recorded their first music video for their single 'Night Sky'

Remember that it is important to 'Dress Bright' to ensure you can be seen on your way to school and back and any clubs that you attend.
In Year 5 this term children are going to work on a project entitled 'Our Exminster Memories Scrapbook'. During this project the children will look at how the village has changed over time and what it was like to live in Exminster in the past.
The children will be writing a weekly blog based on this as well as producing a physical scrapbook. They are also hoping to put on an exhibition to show what they have discovered.
7 pupils from years 5 and 6 have been working with Mr Hardee to write and record an original song. They decided to write the song based on the whole school topic for the autumn term: 'Time Travel'. The children recorded the song at 'Broadwater Studios' playing all the musical parts themselves. The band consists of Lilly-Mae (Vocals), Jesse (Vocals), Sam (Bass guitar), Ellie (Guitar), Erin (Guitar), Amelie (Keyboard) and Molly (Drums).
The track has now been uploaded to a website called 'Youth Record Label' which is a company that promotes young musicians. The band, called 621, have been entered into several national competitions; one of which is judged on the amount of downloads the track gets. If you would like to support the band and the school, please go to the following link and download 621's new single 'Night Sky.'
In the new year, a music video will be made to accompany the song and the band will be performing live. Watch this space...
