It is the Summer term and today the sun is shining! We are really looking forward to getting onto the beach tomorrow for our 'Teach on the beach' day, and seeing lots of you there.
Thank you to Littleham Primary School for hosting our last meeting and to Kate Ponting from Clinton Devon Estates who came along and discussed the great (and free) activities on the common, River Otter and at farms, that she can provide for local East Devon schools.
There are also lots of other great events going on this term to get you out of the classroom. We have confirmed the venues of the next meeting (see post below), and also, one of the schools that is taking part in the NHDSP in North Devon is 'Going Unplugged' for a day on Thursday 7th July 2016. Why not join South Molton Primary School by switching off the electricity for the day at school, home or work. See below for further information.
