Thank you to everyone who joined us for Christingle making yesterday- great fun was had by all!

This week our children took part in their first Christmas nativity at St Matthew's. Well done- you were all amazing!

Owls Visit St Matthew's!

We have had some interesting visitors at St Matthew's! Mr Burt visited us with his collection of owls. We saw a Little Owl, an English Barn Owl, an African Barn Owl and a Frogmouth to name but a few! In total we saw 10 owls. The children asked some very good questions and we learnt so much! Did you know that an owl can make half of it's body sleep whilst it is in a tree, while the other half of the owl is awake and searching for food! Amazing! 

Arts and crafts club

Look at our creations! We enjoy making something different each week to take home 😀.

Grand Designs Exhibition ~ Tuesday 10th November 

The home learning project this term was to ' design a home for the future' . Some children designed a new home for the 3 little pigs whilst others planned their own homes. The judges, staff and parents were amazed at the fantastic designs as well as the thoughtful ideas and clear explanations that the children were able to provide. 

 

We were impressed with the range of projects which included; booklets, 3D creations, powerpoint presentations, laminated posters and a living plant.

The projects were shared at our exhibition and 3 amazing designs were awarded a prize by Plymouth Homes Estate Agents , located in Crownhill.frown

 

A special thanks to the PTFA who hosted a cake sale at our exhibition and managed to raise over £100. The PTFA are currently aiming to buy ukuleles for the children so they can have lessons in school and an after school ukulele club can be established. 

 

 

Budding designers, architects, and builders. We let our imagination run wild!!

Tree Day

 

Children in Nursery and Reception went on a welly walk to collect leaves, looking at patterns, shape and colour.  We had a few moments of reflection, watching the falling autumn leaves and the enormous trees with the blue sky beyond and thought about the amazing world that God created for us.
