At the heart
of our community

Welcome to Membury Primary and Pre-School

Welcome to Membury Primary and Pre-School

We are a small school at the heart of our community in rural East Devon where we create close, supportive relationships. We get to know all children individually and have high expectations of behaviour and attainment. Our small class sizes allow us to tailor the learning to meet the needs of each child.

We use our Forest School environment to take learning outside the classroom and inspire children’s learning. We also link with our partner schools to provide enrichment in arts, sport and music.

I hope you find the information on our website useful and informative, and we welcome visits from prospective parents and children. You will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome!

The Three Little Pigs Construction Crew

The Three Little Pigs Construction Crew

Key Stage 2 children have had fun making houses for the Three Little Pigs this week. Houses had to have internal walls and be wired for lights and a door buzzer. The children even made their own switches. The focus has been on making sure that these houses are practical, for example walls need to be firmly fixed into place,  doors need to open and windows should not be bisected by internal walls. We will explore ways to make them aesthetically pleasing next week.  Click on heading for more pictures

Wow Walls

Wow Walls

Wow Walls! I am learning; I am building the person I want to be.

This week we started our Wow Walls in what is now the Celebration Corridor! They don't look like much yet but we are going to keep working hard and learning so that we can keep adding our achievements to the wall each week. Please feel free to come in after school to have a look at the wall with your child. This will help raise the profile of the walls as a way of celebrating success. Please let us know about any Wow moments your child has at home or at an out of school activity so that we can celebrate a wide range of achievements here in school.

Fizz Pop Science

Fizz Pop Science

Astro Alice from Fizz Pop Science came to visit us on Tuesday, she led an extremely exciting and engaging assembly on bubbles.
The children were involved in making small bubbles, lots of bubbles and huge bubbles with various pieces of equipment.  They learnt why bubbles are always round and never square or triangular - something to do with surface tension and the air in the bubble.
They discovered that you don’t just need fairy liquid to make good bubbles - you can add some heat and chemicals, all of which had the children wanting Astro Alice to stay and do more with them.
One year 2 child was heard saying   'I'm having a heart attack.  This is so exciting, this has to be a dream it’s so amazing.'
The grand finale saw Astro Alice showing the children how to make elephant toothpaste, something I think they will never forget.
All of the children are now wanting to become scientists and many of them have signed up for the after school club which begins on Wednesday 15th October for four sessions.  We will keep you updated with what happens.  Click heading for more photos

We're Bright Sparks at Membury

We have had fun investigating circuits this week and creating our wonder wall of ideas to explore during our Bright Sparks topic. The children wonder who discovered electricity, how you make it and how it gets inside batteries. We will have fun answering these queries and more over the next few weeks. Do you know the answers to these questions?
