Mother's Day Assembly

The children performed their assembly on Thursday, ready for you to view on Mothering Sunday.    Their messages to you are also uploaded for you to see.  We hope you have an enjoyable day.

Egg Experiment

How strong is an egg, really?

When we think of eggs, we think easily breakable and delicate. For the most part, that is true. But how are chickens able to sit on eggs without breaking them? Maybe an egg is stronger than we think!

We rested 4 eggs in glue lids so we could investigate how strong they really are!  We needed to make sure we could balance books on top of them.   We thought “What would happen if we stacked our reading books on top of 4 eggs?”

 “Would they be able to hold the books or would they break?” 

We predicted what we thought might happen and then placed the books on top of our 4 eggs to see the results!    

We were very surprised!  It took more than 30 books to break the eggs.

Egg shells MUST be really strong?  We thought about why?   

Living Eggs Day 1-5

World Book Day


International Day

On Wednesday the 29th January it was 'International Day’ at Huish Primary School. Class 2 went on an adventure to Africa. We arrived in school and was quickly taken to the airport where we were given our passports and we experienced what it was like to go through passport control and into the departure lounge. We then got on board our flight and watched a safety video and some inflight entrainment before we arrived in Africa. We then explored different activities, we learnt and African dance, we went on safari to see animals in the wild, we created African artwork before we flew home. On the home we were very lucky to taste some exotic fruits that are grown in African. All in all a very busy day for class 2 and we even got home in time to meet our mums and dads.

A trip to Church….

We visited The Methodist Church in Vicarage Street, Yeovil. We searched for the stars around the church and learnt about the Christmas story. We enjoyed lots of Christmas crafts and even some singing too. What a fun morning we all had!

Library visit

Today we visited the library in Yeovil and learnt how a library works.  We met Cathy the library assistant and she read us a fairy tale about a Princess in a paper bag.  She has given us some library membership forms so we can hopefully join as a family.

A big “Thank you” to all of you who came and got involved in our Christmas Craft workshop. The children had lots of fun bending pipe cleaners and threading beads in order to make their own individual Christmas wreath decorations. A lot of fun was had and it was a really successful afternoon due to the great turn out of willing parents, grandparents and helpers. Thank you once again for giving up your time to join us in school.

We are very much looking forward to spending all day in school.




Gore Farm

On 24th June we returned to Gore Farm for a Summer visit. We were able to discuss the similarities and differences from our visit in January. First we walked down through the wheat field to the woods. At Base Camp Angela gave us containers and magnifying glasses so we could go looking for mini-beasts. We found snails, centipedes, spiders, slugs, ants, beetles, a moth and plenty of woodlice. After our delicious picnic lunch we went to see the calves. Some of them were only three weeks old. We watched them feed by sucking milk from buckets. We also saw three big pigs, three sheep and a crazy goat called “Moses”! Finally we looked at some of the baby birds that live on the farm- chicks, ducklings and goslings. Thank you to Angela, Tessa and Stuart - and all the adults who came to help look after us!

New Playground Markings

We have been enjoying our new outdoor area activities. We ride our bikes and scooters following the direction of the arrows and we stop at the zebra crossing.


We chose our own Home Learning Task on the theme of “Mini-beasts”.

Life Bus.

We met Helen and Harold the giraffe.
We learned about healthy life-styles.

Sock Farm, May 2019

Our Reception classes made the annual visit to Sock Farm.
Mr Snell showed us around the farm and we saw the milking parlour, the barn and the cornfields.
We saw cows, calves, pigs and piglets. Now we know more about where our food comes from and understand the meaning of “dairy”.

'The Little Red Hen'

We have been learning the story of “The Little Red Hen”. We could tell the story in small groups. We made bread. We had a try at writing the story ourselves!


Living eggs project, March 2019

We borrowed an incubator with ten living eggs. Within a few days all ten chicks had hatched. We had to make sure the chicks were kept warm, had food and fresh water.

Once they had grown stronger we were able to get them out so we could watch them closely. We could see their wings already. We learned that the male chicks are the yellow ones and the female chicks are brown. 

They have now been rehomed on a farm where they can run around and scratch about!

“Pete the poet workshop” 

Year R met Pete the poet. He gave us all a puppet to help us think of words. We made a rhyme together. We looked at the pictures in the book “The Lost Words”. We liked the picture of the kingfisher so he drew it for us.

'Big School's Birdwatch'

Photos of our visit from Peter Littlewood from YPTE (Young People's Trust for the Environment) and us doing our RSPB ‘Big School’s Birdwatch”.

16th January, Gore Farm

To support our learning about birds we went to Gore Farm. The farmer showed us some of the birds that live on the farm. We learned about eggs and feathers. Then we walked across the fields down to the woods. Angela took us to “Base Camp” and we listened to the birds in the trees. We went bird spotting and found pictures of birds. We can recognise so many now! We hope to go back in the summer to see the animals.

Welcome back!

Our new term starts with many special events to look forward to! We have our first school trip to Gore Farm, China day, Safer – Internet day and a workshop session, all before half-term!

Our new topic is “Birds”. We will be learning about the features of birds, their similarities and differences and their habitats. We have talked about how we could encourage more birds to our school environment and decided to make bird feeders to hang in the garden.

We used seeds, oats, lard and some leftover Christmas pudding! We hope the birds come!


Here are some photos of our first christmas at Huish…

On 11th December, Year R presented “The First Christmas” and we sang our way through the story of the Nativity. Thank you to Mrs Bennett for being our musical director.
