2009 - 2010

We've been working hard to produce a web-site based on
Tudor Social Structure

Click on the photo to link to it.

We are not burning Guy Fawkes on the village bonfire this November 5th !
We're burning Robert Cecil !!
Check this page next week to find out who he was and why he's getting burnt.

We've been daubing our Tudor structure.

To make our daub we mixed soil, sand,
hay and clay which we dug out of
the ground.

It was really hard work !

Its hard to believe that Tudor labourers
would do work like this for 12 hours
a day. They only got paid 3p a day !

We're starting to get our shelter up.

Today we've been mixing cement and using
it to lay a foundation which we can
put our shelter on.

The Tudors didn't use cement for foundations,
they used stone so we've cheated a bit !

Our next job is the roof so check the site
again next week for more photos.

We are working together to build
a structure
using authentic
Tudor building

To make Poor Knights Pudding
To make Poor knights Pudding. Cut two penny loaves in round slices, dip them in half a pint of Cream or faire water, then lay them abroad in a dish, and beat three Eggs and grated Nutmegs and sugar, beat them with the Cream then melt some butter in a frying pan, and wet the sides of the toasts and lay them in on the wet side, then pour in the rest upon them, and so fry them.

Click the image to read about what we're doing.

Most Tudor people had to rely on herbal remidies and old wives tales to cure them when they were ill.

It was believe that a good cure for bauldness was to shave the head and then rub in crushed garlic and vinegar.
Mr Stephesnon hasn't got much hair so we tried it out on him !!!

2008 - 2009

We're reading a book called Stone Cold in Class.

We've taken part in our first training walk of 2009 on Darmoor.
Loads of photos will follow but in the mean time you can click on these exhausted walkers
to down load the route that we planned and followed.

Class 5 are heading towards their annual Ten Tors Challenge on Dartmoor again.
The photos show us setting up some orienteering courses on our school field.
This is helping us to learn about bearings and how to use compasses.

SAT Eggstavaganza

We worked on the highest tower, the longest bridge, the best looking egg,
the fastest egg and the best recipie.

Click on the writing to find out who the winners were in the best dressed egg competition:

We visited Rosemore Gardens in March to help us with our
study of different Habitats.

Class 5 visited the mobile planetarium at Holsworthy College and IGER as part of Science Week.

The photos are from IGER.

Click here to see our new Victorian London pages .....
They are still under construction but have a look anyway !

In January we were asked to write a report on the village play-area.
Click on this image to download our report.

We've been studying Romeo and Juliet.
This picture shows us at the Queen's Hall In Barnstaple at the start of November.
The show was performed by Shakespear 4 Kids.
It was fantastic !!!

We've been using Knex for some technology challenges .....

We've ended up doing quite a lot of work on Hartland Quay so we've decided
to make a web page all about the area.
We're afraid that you'll have to click another photo to get there !

The page is still under construction but don't let that stop you
from finding out how we are getting on.

2007 - 2008

Why are these childen so happy, and dressed for the middle
of winter in July?

Broomhill Sculpture Garden

We have an art teacher called Mr Sentance who teaches us every Friday morning.

We learn lots of different styles and about different artists and their work. We also go on visits which help us work in school.

These photos show us at Broomhill Sculpture Garden. We went their to learn about different types of modern sculpture.
We sketched them and tried to work out what they were about.


We've started visiting Dartmoor again.
Click on this photo of the last Tor we reached to find out about our route.

Rosemoor Gardens

We went to Rosemore Gardens this June to learn about the different plants and to make sketches of them.

Mr Sentance went with us. He's our art teacher and he also helps us with the school garden.

It was a nice sunny day and we had a really good time. The gardens were really quiet and it was really easy to concentrate on our drawing.

We bought some plants for our school garden.

Sandy Brown

On Friday 20th June our Year 5s went to Sandy Brown's ceramics work place.
Sandy Brown is a sculptor and a painter.

When we got there we had to help her choose which plates, cups and trays she should send off to be put in an exhibition.
She had made them before we got there and needed help choosing the best ones.

Then we went up stairs to see a huge painting that she was going to finish soon.

We then walked in to a room that had some finished paintings in. There were some colourful pictures and some pictures which contained just one colour.

We had a great time and saw some amazing work.

On Thursday 13th March Years 5 and 6 went on a trip to Iger,
which is a place where you get to learn about science. We went there because we wanted
to learn about the environment and do some projects in science that we can’t experiment with in school.

One of the projects we looked at was microbiology.
Microbiology is all about viruses and bacteria. They’re objects that you can’t
see with the naked eye. Bacteria is found everywhere, without bacteria you wouldn’t be alive, it is very essential. Microbiology is a close up of viruses and bacteria.

In our experiment we looked at different types of bacteria and discovered that not all of them are harmful. We also discovered that bacteria are so small that in just one normal sized full stop there are 15,000 bacteria. Bacteria are actually a good thing, although people think that it’s disgusting. We learnt that lots other types of bacteria make people ill, and we looked at how they are passed around.

Viruses are infections that only grow in something living.
Viruses can only produce if they can get into a blood cell.
If they get to one person then they can spread very quickly to other people.

By: Sam, Megan, Lauren and Matthew.

This session was about solids, liquids and gases.
We looked at how water exists as ice, water and steam.
When we were in the session we got a cube of ice, and
Put it in a glass container of boiling water and it only took a couple of seconds to melt.
After that we had a discussion. We learned that if you put your hand in a container of liquid nitrogen your fingers would freeze and snap off and for a moment no blood supply would get through but eventually it would start pouring with blood and it would hurt…..a lot!
Then the scientist demonstrated the effect of liquid nitrogen.
He picked a flower and put it in the liquid nitrogen as the flower went in the liquid it let this smoke stuff out, then it stopped. The scientist took the flowers out and they were covered in frost. He smashed the flowers in his hands like pieces of glass.
Later on he showed us how carbon dioxide which is normally a gas can be made a solid in a special box and tank which keep them cold. He pumped lots of the liquid into the box and it turned into a solid block. Then he showed us that it was not as strong as ice by throwing it onto the floor where it broke up like powder.

We learnt about soils that absorbed water quickly, the different types of soils included were; Sandy soil, Silty soil and peat soil.

We looked at a variety of soils, and learnt about their different properties. We used a branching database to identify the different types of soil we had.

One of the experiments was that we had 3 different soils, sandy soil, silty soil and peat. We added water to each tube of soil, and saw what water goes through the soils quicker. Peat was the one which held the water the longest. The one which let the water out the quickest was sandy soil.

On Thursday 13th March class 5 went to IGER, we leant lots of things and one of the sessions was to do with Biodiversity.

Biodiversity is about the study of ‘variety of life’ meaning birds, bat’s mammals, amphibians, insects and plants.
All life forms relate to each other, for example plants give oxygen for us to breathe, we breathe out carbon dioxide which the plants then breathe in.
We looked at the different ways that the scientists find out which animals live in different places. We had to try and use the information and plants on the sheets to find out which animals we were looking at.

By Jess, Abbie and Ashlea.

Photosynthesis is a plant process. It is the process that enables a plant to produce food for survival. We carried out an investigation/experiment to prove that photosynthesis produces oxygen and carbon-dioxide. We first got a measuring jug filled with bicarbonate of soda and some water (about one third.) Then we filled up a vial with the bicarbonate of soda merged with water. After that we inserted some pond weed into the vial full of the liquid. We then got a test-tube full of the bicarbonate soda and water combined and put our thumb over the top of the test-tube to contain the liquid in the tube. We put the tube over the vial to let no air, nor oxygen escape from the tube. The plant emitted oxygen to make bubbles (very, very small ones) and they collected in the tube.
At the last moment the lady in charge (the head scientist in the subject of photosynthesis) gathered oxygen from the plants into a tube. She then used a technique to prove that the air that was contained in the jar was pure oxygen, she got a matchstick or also known as a splint and a lit candle. She then got another splint and shared the warmth of the flame with the bottle/tube of oxygen with the flame. She quickly blew the flame out and the splint was left with a glow of warmth on the very tip. She un-corked the test-tube and stuck the splint into the pure oxygen filled container (test-tube.) The splint suddenly sprang to life again and was lit again with a blast of blaze. The oxygen re-lit the splint.
That concluded the lesson we had experienced in the IGER greenhouse. The other group walked in and they had no idea what they were about to learn. Oh yeah, and before we leave I think you’re wondering what IGER means. Its abbreviation is………

Institute of grassland and environmental research. Wow, its good I got that out.
By Matt, Rhiannon, Jake and Jack.

The Star Lab Planetarium

On the 11th of March, year 6 children went to Holsworthy Community College to see the mobile Planetarium.

In the school hall there was a dome that we crawled into and sat inside. We were there to learn about forces and space.
The two Astronomers did a demonstration on forces using a balloon. They blew it up and let it go, it was moved by a pair of forces.
Then they told us about friction and gravity.

They told us about the Northern and Southern lights, you can only see them, if you’re high up, on a hill or mountain in Scotland. After
that they got a bar magnet and put it on a table surrounded by lots of iron files, the iron files were attracted to the north
and south pole of the magnet. They decided to make a smiley face out of the iron files.

They got an overhead projector and put on it a picture of different sea creatures, they explained that some different creatures
are created in a certain shape and form, so they can cut through the water. They told us about aero-dynamics,
and how cars, rockets and aeroplanes have certain shape to slice through the air at a high speed!

Herons Success in the Bradworthy School Christmas Fayre.

On Friday 30th November Heron's House Team and the other three school Houses (Robins, Puffins and Magpies) were tasked to organise the Christmas Fayre. We had been given £25 and we had to try and make the biggest profit by sellling the craft things other Classes made and by asking people to do our games and competitions. The stalls ran fairly smoothly and in the end Herons won with a profit of £203.

On the morning of Friday 30th November none of us Herons were expecting our sales and activities to be so popular. We started the morning with barely any stalls set up and by the end of the morning everything was set up. We think that our teamwork was brilliant. Everyone was co-operative and helped with everything.
As soon as the fayre started swarms of people flooded towards our games and stalls. As soon as this happened our profits rocketed up giving us an excellent early start on everything.
The games we made went really well because everyone came over to do them, you could tell they were really having a good time. The lucky dip, teddy bear competition, Santa's Grotto and guess the sweets game made lots of money and everyone enjoyed them.
The prices were just right and we didn't need to change them. The people on the stalls did a pretty good job of encouraging people to buy things and do the games. We got the prizes right because there was no stock left at the end but we didn't run out too soon.

We didn't really need to improve anything because the profit was already gigantic and our teams day ran really smoothly. Everything was just right except that some people got a bit board, to make that better we swopped jobs.

By the end of the day our team was extremely happy, especially with our profit of £203.67. This huge profit got us to the winning spot and hopefully we can another go some-time soon.

By Sam and Duncan (Year 6)

This is us on the lifeboat slip at the mouth of the river Torridge in Appledore.
We spent the day following the river so we could see how it changes and
find out about the sort of things that go on along its banks.
We look surprisingly happy when you consider that we have just
walked over 10 miles from Torrigton !
Fortunately we caught the bus back to Torrington !!!

Torrington 1646
Torrington is a small town on the banks of the Torridge which we visited this November.

We have been finding out about the English Civil War and there was an important batle
in Torrington. The pictures show us on a town trail and finding out about the way
people lived at this time.
We've published a class book which is available from school.

Class 5 River Torridge Trip

On Friday the 14th of September Class 5 went on a trip to the river Torridge at the bottom of Ash Hill.

We went on this trip to see how fast the current flows and to look at depth and erosion.
Class5 split into two groups so that one group could draw pictures of the river with Mr Sentance and the other half could observe the river and run some experiments.

We measured the current of the water. We two canes and string that was precisely 10 metres apart. We timed an orange to float down the river that started at the front of the 10 metre piece of string and stopped at the end of the 10 metre stick. We used an orange because it’s light and will float well.
The distance and time will tell us the precise speed of the river in several different places
We also measured the depth of the river every metre as we crossed it in different places.
We did this so that we could lokk at how deep it was and how fast the river was moving.
Finally we look at the way the water was flowing and where there was erosion, transportation and deposition.

The other group went with our art teacher Mr. Sentence to draw. They drew any creatures, plants… and most of all, the River Torridge and how it flowed. They really enjoyed this because it was a bright, sunny day and they could see a clear sky with no clouds… it was a beautiful scene.

Class 5 really enjoyed this trip because they got to draw, watch, estimate…and just have fun!

Creative Writing

We've been doing lots of creative writing in our local environment.
We've been to lots of differnt places including Hawker's Hut on the cliffs near Morwenstow
Marsland Mouth which is where part of Westward Ho! by Charles Kingsley is set.

Galloping white horses rushed on to shore then tumbled on to the jagged rocks that lay beneath them.
Watching, staring with her huge white eyes, gazing from above, her white dress blown out behind her, her black curles blown out to one side. Her face was as white as snow, her lips as red as ruby. The white which watched from the cliff tops, her laugh echoed all around.

This was written by me at Marsland Mouth beach and was inspired by the boo Westward Ho! by Charles Kingsley.
Jess (Year 5)

I listen to the white waves, crash against the rocks.
I listen to the birds fly, in their flowing flocks.
I listen to the smooth pebbles, rumbling against eachother.
I listen to the ghostly cries, pleading altogether.
I weep,
I cry for those poor things.
Sometimes I listen to the church bells ring.
I don't know who they were,
I don't know what they did.
I don't know who killed them .....
who, who, who?

Meg (Year 5)

The gentle summer breeze,
the swaying summer trees.
The birds are singing their lovely song,
I wish that I could sing along.

The sun shines bright, it shines so clear.
Its warm and calming, free from fear.
The grass is green, the flowers bloom,
The only problem, it will end soon.

So make the most of your summer time,
it gives you the change to shine.

Lianne (Year 5)

Stone Cold
In Class 5 we have been reading a book called Stone Cold. It is about a boy called Link who's
parents split up and his mum met Vince who liked to drink. When he did he was violent. Link
didn't like this so he went to stay with his older sister Carol. After a while he wasn't welcome so
he started to live on the streets. He called it "making yourself homeless."
He couldn't get much money on the streets so after Christmas he went to London with £150.
Within two hours he had spent £100 to stay in a dirty hostel. After a week and a half he was asked to
pay for the next couple of weeks but he didn't have enough money so "rat face" (the hostel owner)
through him out.
The book had another character called Shelter, an x-army soldier. He was on a mission to clean up the
the streets by killing homeless people.
So Link's alone on the streets. What will he do?
I won't tell you what happens, you'll have to buy the book yourself.
The book was very realistic and exciting. You could imagine what it must be like to live on the streets.
I really recommend this fabulous book written by Robert Swindells.
Ruth (Year 6)


Cookworthy Forest
Bradworthy primary school went to Cookworthy Forest. We looked at the different habitats and creatures that lived there. The ranger had gone out a few days before and set some traps to see what lived in the woods. We caught bank voles and wood mice. After we looked at them we released them back into the woods.
We also looked at the grassland and wild flowers that grew in the meadow.
we had our packed lunches in the centre at Cookworthy Forest.
In the afternoon we went pond dipping for creatures. We played some games in the woods. It was good fun.

Junior Life Skills

These children are sitting on a sofa which they built with our art teacher Mr Sentance.

We visited some local beaches where we collected driftwood.

We brought the wood back to school and used it to make furniture.

As well as this sofa we made a table and a chair.

Hartland Quay
On Monday 18th September class 5 of Bradworthy Primary School went to Hartland Quay and Spekes Mill Mouth to study erosion and rock sediments.

The cliffs got eroded by the waves reaching up on to the beach and crashing against the cliffs and eventually wearing them down and making a landslide of rocks. We had to look out for faults in the cliff so we did not to walk under, as it is dangerous. Once the rocks had fallen on to the beach the sea would eventually rub over the rocks and smooth them down into pebbles. This is called attrition. A storm beach is at the top, it is where the sea picks up the rocks on the shore and launches them at the cliff face. This is called abrasion.
When we looked out to the sea from the wave cut platform which is like a beach, we could see an erosional surface, Lundy Island. Lundy Island was made by Gondwana and Eurussia two slabs of rock pushing together to form the Variscan Mountains. Over millions of years the Mountains have been weathered with the water running in to a basin, they have also been eroded down now there is not much left of them just the ribs.

This is a picture of a river valley. The river is meandering its way through and eroding as it goes. The river would erode the mudstone first and very slowly the sandstone. It erodes the mudstone first because it is a lot softer than sandstone.
The river is a river valley because it has very steep sides and a river flows through it. Near the end of the river it flows over the sedimentary rock and flows off a hanging valley into the sea. A hanging valley is a cliff that hangs over the sea.
This is St Catherine’s Tor we went there to look at the way it had been eroded by the sea. There used to be valley sides on both sides but the sea has eroded one side now.
Be fore it got eroded a little chuirch was on the top. When the sea eventually eroded the Tor the building fell into the ocean. The sandstone and mudstone have compressed together to make the rock inside the Tor and you can see it just like at Hartland Quay. St Catherine Tor is now a very good example of erosion.
Ruth and Meg said”We had a great day out and we learnt a lot of new and interesting things”
The whole class enjoyed and learnt new and intelligent things we also went on a very long walk.
About 5 miles along the cliffs!
By Meg and Ruth ( Year 6 )

Back on Dartmoor ( October 2006 )

Before we went out we had to do a lot of preparation
work in school.

This included:

Practicing our navigation skills in school.
Planning a route using OS Maps.
Using ICT equipment to produce detailed route cards.

Its just as well we practiced because when we got
there the conditions were absolutely
terrible !!!

Is that Highwillhays in the mist?

Lunch under cover ( thank God for the shelter!!! )

Lints Tor, 10 seconds before the rain started.

Typical Dartmoor weather on Sourton Tor - Gale Force Fog!

We are working on a web page all about our local area and we hope that
it will be posted here in the new school year.

2005 - 2006

Fab Five

The pictures show us on each of the five Tors.

Starting at the top we walked to Yes Tor, High Willhays, Black Tor,
Shelston Tor, and Sourton Tor.

The report has been written by Meg Furse who is in Year 5.

Year 5s Complete 5 Tors on Dartmoor.

On Thursday 13th July Bradworthy School's Year 5s walked on 5 of Dartmoor's Tors.
The group was Mr Stephenson, Mrs Brown, Jonny Furse, Elliot Lewis, Meg Furse, Tom Vallence, Becky Andrew, Daniella Stevens, Jade Gifford, Ruth Payne and Hannah Petherick.

We started at Meldon Reservoir and from there we walked to:
Yes Tor, High Willhays, Black Tor, Shelston Tor and finally Sourton Tor.

The path to the first Tor very steep in places. It took us about an hour to reach the summit. We walked so fast we nearly killed the adults walking with us!!!!
Then we walked across to High Willhays, the highest moutain in the South West. We all sat on the Tor and ate lunch together. After lunch we walked down hill, it was quite marshy in places, then we reached Black Tor. We didn't stay here long.
Form here we walked down very wet and uneven ground until we got to a river. We had to use stepping stones to get to the other side. Mr Stephenson and Jonny went across first to help us. No one fell in a part from one. Mr Stephenson!!!! There's always one!!!
Then we walked up a very steep hill towards Shelstone Tor. The views were amazing towards the end but earlier on it was misty so you couldn't see too far in to the distance. As we walked on the weather cleared and we had brilliant sunshine.
Then we got to Sourton Tor, this was our fifth and final Tor. It was a long walk back to the car but we all made it.
We really enjoyed ourselves but were really tired by the end.

Devon Music Mix

These photos show final rehearsals in school the day before the Music Mix.

Class 5 performed the official school song, Star Child, at the Devon Music Mix at the Westpoint Arena near Exeter on July 28th 2006.
The school has been performing at these events for several years, so it’s now become a tradition.
We have been practising since March and in that time Daniella has learnt how to play the tune on the piano.

The day was great especially the beat boxing and break dancing, everyone in the class loved it. There was a samba band that was great. Bradley, Becky and Douglas thought that was the best. The other great thing was Chinese dancing with ribbons.

The best part of the day was our performance and we will always remember the moment when we played and the audience cheered.
The performance was really good and we didn’t make any mistakes. Afterwards we felt amazed that we had done this, all the hard work was worth it!

Shane, Elliot and Robert learned to play a rhythm and the whole class learnt the music on the ocarina.
I learnt how to play the xylophone while Jessie, Freya and Amy learnt how to play the glockenspiel.
Ben played the kazoo and Debbie played the electric guitar.
Bradley played the swami whistle and
Jessie, Amy and Freya sang solos.
Ruth, Jade, Hannah, Becky and Meg played the drums and Amy played the thumb piano for the first time ever.
“I think it’s a good song and our performance was great, Mr Dawson is such a brilliant music teacher, and it’s great that we went and performed on stage!” quoted Bradley Howells.
Mr Stephenson said he was very proud of us all.

Sculpture Visit

The Sculpture Park

On Tuesday 15th may, class 5 from Bradworthy school went to a sculpture park. Afterwards we went to Northam Borrows to make sculptures of our own.

Class 5 had a great time when we went to Broomhill Sculpture park on Tuesday 15th May. We spent about two hours looking around the amazing statues by lots of different artists. Some were very small and some were very big. But my favourite sculpture was an enormous dragon made out of wood, it was painted silver so it looked as if it was made of metal.
After lunch we went to Northam Borrows to make our own sculptures in the sand. We used stones, sticks and all sorts of things washed up by the tide. Some of our sculptures dug into the ground and others raised up into the air.

Everyone enjoyed their day out, Bradley. From our class, said "I liked looking
at the sculptures, they are all weird and wacky. The best thing of all was
when we were at the beach."

By Thomas Vallance

These two photos show us attaching the Bradworthy sculpture
which we designed to the side of our school shed.

Our Willow Dome

This is the latest picture of our willow dome.
As you can see its coming along really well.

Junior Life Skills

Junior Life Skills is a really cool event which is held at Fremington Army Camp each year.
We take part in loads of different sessions which are run by people like the Fire Service, the Coastguard, the Police, the School Nurses, St John's Ambulance and Environmental Health.
The sessions are really good fun and we learn all about how to be healthy and safe.

Local History Project

Class 5 have been investigating and researching local history.
We have produced a book based on the local port of Bideford in Tudor times.
Many of the children will have brought a book home but if you haven't seen one yet they are available in school.

The children have been working with Mr Sentance to produce pottery tiles and mugs in a traditional North Devon style.

This type of pottery was exported from Bideford to places like North America during the 17th centuary.

Unfortunately one of the children's mugs broke when they were making it so we are going to fire and bury it in the hope of confusing future historians who might find it.

Check out the School Grounds page for pictures of us building a willow dome which will
eventually be used as an outdoor classroom.

We've been studying Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare.

One of thethings we have done is to look at Juliet's famous balcony speech :

Night. The moon shines brightly on the orchard of the Capulets' house.
There is a balcony, like a carved stone pocket, from which Juliet
surveys the moonlight.

"O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name . . .
Tis but thy name that is my enemy; thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet:
so Romeo would, were he not Romeo called. Romeo, doff thy name, and for thy name,
which is no part of thee, take all myself."

This speech inspired the children to write in prose about how Romeo and Juiet might have been
feeling at this part of the the play.


Juliet was sitting on the balcony with her white wine sparkling in the moon light. Her night gown wrapped round her, she still had the smell of Romeo on her.
She got up and walked into her room, she sat at her dressing table and looked in the mirror as she brushed her hair. A tear rolled down her cheek, and another, and another. She shut her door and closed her curtains, then she blew out the candle, and climbed into bed. All night she lay awake thinking about Romeo.
Nurse came in and lay next to her, she said gently 'are you ok Juliet? Your pillow is wet, how about I make us both some coco and you tell us all about it.'
So nurse got the coco and they sat side by side, Juliet wiped her eyes with a handkerchief.
'So what happened?' asked nurse.
'Romeo, Romeo I fell in love with Romeo,' started Juliet.
'And what is so wrong about that,' whispered nurse.
'A Montague, he is a Montague,' she sobbed.
'Oh No!' cried nurse.
'Please don't tell anyone, please,' pleaded Juliet.
'Ok I promise, but you can't be in love with him any more,' explained nurse.
'I know, but if this flower was called something else would it still smell and look the same?' asked Juliet.
'Yes of course,' replied nurse.
'Well then, so does my Romeo, I don't care if he is a Montague or not I am still in love with him, he is still my Romeo,' Juliet whispered.
Juliet lay down and fell into a deep sleep.

By Ruth ( Year 5 )


Drunken men danced round the bar waving their bottles as Romeo and
Mercutio sat down drinking rum.
"Why tis it that thy not have fun, art thou missing dear Juliet," Mercutio asked
"Thy ladys beauty is more powerful than a thousand stars," Romeo glugged
down more rum.
"Why must her name be Capulet, my father thy not agree with my love with
sweet Juliet,” moaned Romeo.
"Doff thy Capulet, what’s wrong with lady Rosalyn !" Mercutio began to get
"Deny thy name, Juliet isn't my enemy, tis other Capulets, for Juliet is
sweet and harmless!"Romeo spoke with a loving rage in his body.
”Tis loving Juliet, loving Juliet is thy sin and I will have no part of
this !" grumbled Mercutio as he stormed off.

By Oliver ( Year 6 )

Map work is an important part of our work in geography.
In the pictures below we are looking at the features and course of the river Torridge ahead of some field trips.

We're standing in the River Torridge near Bradworthy.
There'e been quite a lot of rain over the last few days and these photos show us takng measurements between the showers.
We are going to use these measurements to work out the speed of the river in meters per second.
We are also going to calculate the volume of water which is flowing each second.

If we get any dry weather this winter we are going to go back so that we can compare our wet
weather results.

Dry weather arrived a few days after the above pictures so back we went.
We've got some excellent results and we hope to publish some of
them on this page after half term.

We have already started work on a technology progect.

The children in these picturse are building and testing joints so that they can go on to make strong structures.We have been considering what makes a strong joint and how loads at different points effect strength.

We are going to build some big working models so keep checking this page for more information.

We've started work on a playground mosaic with Mr Sentance.

In science we have been studying solids, liquids and gases.
We've been thinking about their properties and this has included
measuring mass and volume by displacement, so that we can calculate

We have been thinking about how molecules are joined in each state
and how adding, or taking away, energy can cause materials
to change.

In these pictures we are setting up investigations so that we can
find out what effects evaporation.
Investigation is a very important part of science. We are thinking about
fair tests, making predictions and taking measurements which are
as accurate as possible.

Our work on evaporation and condensation will help us
to understand the water cycle and will link in
to our geography work on rivers.



2004 - 2005

This is the Year 6 class who transferred to Holsworthy College in Summer 2005. As they go forward to their new schools we hope that they will remember all of the things that we have done together, all of the good times that we have had and all of the things that we have achieved, and remember them with pride and satisfaction.
I hope that they will go on to achievements which are bigger and better than the things which they did at Bradworthy but I also hope that you will remember us because we will always remember you.
It has been a great pleasure and a privilege to teach all of these children and everyone at Bradworthy wishes them the very best for the future.

Has anyone got any ideas about what we are going to call our new head ?


This is Mr Sentance. He's been our art teacher all year and we've done loads of fantastic things with him.

In the summer we worked on the school grounds, building sculptures, quiet areas and making the shed look nice again.

We got the idea for these poles when we visited the sculpture garden at Broomhill on the other side of Barnstaple.
