Flower Surgery in 5BW

As part of our Science life cycles unit, we have been learning how flowering plants reproduce. To identify the role of parts of the flower in the reproduction process we dissected flowers.

We had loads of fun, sorry flowers! See some pictures of our flower surgeons below.

Knapp House: Day 4

We have wi-fi again!

Yesterday was another exciting day, although we did have to wake up a few rooms before breakfast!
Surfing, coastal walking, paddle boating and a disco.

The bag packing has already begun this morning with more lost socks being waved around than we know what to do with. Then it's on to the last activity of the week before a quick shower, lunch and the trip home.

We hope to see you all around 4-5pm. We will keep you updated via the school twitter page.

Knapp House: Day 3

It looks like the weather here in Devon has turned! It's been reasonably dry since we arrived on Monday morning but with a few showers it's been quite cold. However, since lunchtime, the sun has been shining!

We've had another great day and its been filled with mud, water and fun. We hope you enjoy our pictures.

Oak House Day 2

We managed to dodge the rain. We went to Testlands Hub and took part in fun activities including: dodgeball, indoor rounders, penalty shootout and badminton.

Knapp House: Day 2

There were a few blurry eyes this morning at the breakfast table after a ....delayed start to the first night's sleep! But there was no time for a rest today! It was Climbing/abseiling, Ringo rides, Canoe Drill and initiative exercises and peddle cart races today.

The children are enjoying their free time (and the tuck shop) and have been spending time with new friends from other schools and making the most of the reasonable weather and the fantastic site here at Knapp House.

It's another action packed day tomorrow!





Oak House at Woodmill

Today Oak House visited Woodmill activity centre. We got to test our skills at archery, the climbing wall and canoeing.

Knapp House: Day 1


The journey down to Knapp House couldn’t have been better: no traffic and not too warm. Once the children had settled into their rooms and had a tour of the site, they jumped straight into the activities. Depending on their groups, the children completed either crate stack and tunnelling or tree hoist and tree traverse for their afternoon activity. After the evening meal (Pasta Bolognese, hot dogs, ratatouille, salad and chips) all of Oakwood’s groups made the short walk down to Appledore Quay for a spot of crab fishing and RIB rides.

It’s been a long day but the children have had a great start to their week. Can’t wait for tomorrow!
