No Outsiders in EYFS - 13.10.23


As part of our “No Outsiders” education, the children in our Reception class engaged with Todd Parr’s book titled “The Family Book.”  The book taught us that families come in various forms but share a common element: LOVE. We discussed the various expressions of love and the children were able to show this love whilst caring for a baby in their play.

Our Young Environmentalists conduct an Eco-Review of our school 15.11.21

Our Young Environmentalists conducted an Eco Review today. 

The results were as follows:

3/3 for Healthy living

2/3 for biodiversity.

2/3 for transport 

2/3 for water

2/3 for litter

2/3 for Marine conservation

2/3 School grounds

1/3 for Global citizenship

1/3 for waste

0/3 for energy saving


Actions to consider: 

We need to build a hideaway for hedgehogs and feed birds through the winter.

We need to turn off more lights in our school.

We could sponsor an endangered animal / look after an endangered animal teddy.

Ban glitter

Children to look after the plants in the classroom and outside area (not just the adults) 

Collect rainwater 

Recycling bin in every classroom

Encourage worms to move into the existing compost bins.


Our Young Environmentalists will now consider these actions and prioritise the ones we feel are the most important to promote within the school.

Visit from the Fire and Rescue service 🚒 8.11.21

Today, we had a visit from the Fire and Rescue service. We were able to look inside the fire engine and the fire and rescue team explained all the different apparatus they use for different jobs. We were reminded of the very important number we dial in an emergency. We enjoyed watching the fire and rescue team put on their safety clothing and we listened to their voice and the sound of them breathing whilst wearing the oxygen mask. We were shown the flashing lights and then each had a turn putting out a pretend fire with the water hose. We had such a fantastic time. Thank you to Exmouth Fire and Rescue for spending time with us this morning and doing such a fantastic job at keeping us all safe.
