At Dunstone we have some busy weeks ahead of us in the run up to Christmas!
For the month of October, Dunstone Primary are taking part in the 'Classroom to Moon Challenge'.
The eco-warriors have been busy creating edible decorations for birds to enjoy during this festive period. They threaded cheerios onto wire and made them into interesting shapes. Then they found suitable spots around our beautiful grounds to hang them. We are proud to have such an enthusiastic group of children caring for nature and the world around us.
On Thursday last week, KS2 travelled to Plymouth to watch Awful Auntie live on stage!
There was huge excitement in Wonwell Class on Friday as we used all our best letter writing skills to write to Santa in the North Pole. Everyone remembered to start by sending Santa a nice message before very politely asking for just one present. Excitement built as we headed off to the Post Office to buy our stamps, singing Christmas songs and carols as we waited our turn. Then it was off to the post box. Here we had to make sure our letters went with a real 'whoosh'- this was done by closing our eyes and sending good wishes to everyone in the whole world as we popped them into the letter box. What a wonderful way to end the week. Click here for more photos:

Imagine being born in an oven and the first person you meet wants to dunk you in his tea! The children in KS1 at Yealmpton Primary School enjoyed an amazing trip to the Theatre Royal to watch The Gingerbread Man on stage. They had a brilliant time watching an alternative version of the traditional story where The Gingerbread Man travelled to Paris, India and even the Great Pyramids in Egypt. Back at school, KS1 have had the opportunity to write a sorry letter from the fox, ask the little old lady questions and even bake their very own gingerbread men.
This evening some of the children in Year 2 attended a multi-skills tournament at Ivybridge Community College.
We had an amazing time participating in lots of different activities against the other Ivybridge cluster schools. We showed determination and team work and we even came first!!!!
The children were a credit to the school and we are incredibly proud of all of them.
Look at the photo of us with our shiny new trophy!
