Stackpole Day 1

Today we arrived to beautiful sunshine and quickly settled into our rooms. Everyone has successfully made their beds without disappearing inside the duvet covers, so don’t worry!

Everyone has been really great at chatting and making new friends which is great to see.

After a salad bar lunch of rolls, ham, cheese and amazing cakes we set off to enjoy some time at Broadhaven beach.

We have had a delicious dinner of pasta and bolognaise sauce, followed by apple crumble and custard. Mrs Parmiter and Ms Wyatt certainly were ready for their tea!

Chestnut Homework Friday 7th October

Well done Chestnut Class for a very hardworking week. I have really enjoyed watching you performing and modernising Shakespeare’s lines  as well as acting out your Harvest Festival play.

Chestnut Class Homework Friday 7th October Due in on Wednesday 12th October


This week’s maths homework is two Mathletics tasks based on our decimals work we’ve been doing this week in class. If you have trouble accessing the internet at home, let me know and you can do the tasks at school.



Linked to our Shakespeare topic your homework is to find out the meanings of some of Shakespeare’s most common phrases that are still used today. Write the meanings on the sheet. Ask an adult or look up the phrases on the internet if you’re not sure what to write.

Please use at least four of your spelling words in sentences as well.

Have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Parmiter

Stackpole Thursday 28th January 2016

Hi Everyone,

We have had a fantastic final day. This morning the children have been busy clearing brambles as part of their conservation work for the John Muir Award. They had great fun pulling out massive roots and working well as a Kemble/Siddington team.

This afternoon we have been rock pooling on West Angle Beach. We found a variety of wildlife including 3 types of crab, Sea Stars and Cushion Stars, shrimps and Limpets.

For dinner tonight the children have enjoyed an excellent Chicken Curry and Rice and chocolate cake.

Everyone is getting excited for the much awaited trip to the shop and talent show.

Todays quotes from the children:

“I enjoyed picking up and exploring the hermit crab habitat” – Joe

“I most enjoyed pulling out massive roots and charging through brambles” – Louis


Stackpole Wednesday 27th January 2016

Hi Everyone,

Another lovely day today at Stackpole. Today there has been a dramatic change! – The weather has been overcast but dry and milder.   The children have enjoyed mountain biking through the mud and orienteering through the woods. Tonight they are experiencing a nightline activity before bed.

For dinner they ate jacket potatoes with a choice of fillings followed by jam tart and custard.

The children have been very well behaved and worked well as a group.

Tonights quotes of the day are:

“I liked learning about how the ice house worked when orienteering. It was quite interesting.” Joe

“I enjoyed finding about the history of Stackpole mansion” – Ben

I liked mountain biking because the there was lots of mud and puddles and I got to splash Anne-Marie” – Jamie
