Pupils were treated to an African drumming session at the end of last half term, thanks to funding from the PTFA. They loved engaging in the rhythm during this great workshop.
Mill Water's student council voted to make a Super Mario for East Budleigh’s popular Scarecrow Festival. Pupils proudly installed him outside the village shop, with the help of festival committee member Angela Canning. They worked brilliantly together overseeing the creative design process. A special thank you to Mill Water sewing bee Lucy Wheeler who made our scarecrow’s wonderful outfit!
Students in Emily’s class visited the Stagecoach depot in Exeter on Monday. They looked around an empty, open-top bus and then had a spin around the block. They were then given the opportunity to sit in the driver's seat and honk the horn! This was organised by ROVIC’s rehabilitation officer for AW. It was great that the rest of the class could join as part of their travel training. They all said how much they enjoyed it and asked if they could do that every day!
