  • Music at Fremington!

    Published 19/07/24

    On Monday, we were visited by Sarah Steed (North Devon Instrument Services) who told the children all about the music lessons that take place here at Fremington Primary School. We were then treated to some wonderful recitals from students from Y2 up to Y6. They showed confidence, skill and pride. Sarah finished the assembly with a rendition of the Harry Potter theme tune on the flute and Pink Panther on the saxophone! Wonderful! Please see this week's newsletter for information about lessons taking place next year, should you want your child to take up an instrument.

  • Mix Festival

    Published 12/07/24

    Forty of our fabulous choir members embarked upon a fantastic Musical journey to the ‘Mix Festival’ late last week. Despite the weather, both children and staff had a wonderful time engaging in a range of fun musical activities alongside many other schools from across the county. Some of the activities involved Ceilidh dancing, Taiko drumming, and even a chance to appear on local radio! The trip was so popular that children have already been asking about this next year too!

  • London Residential By Skylar-Rea

    Published 05/07/24

    First on the Monday we went on the coach to the Natural History Museum. When we got in there, there was a big skeleton of a mammoth blue whale hanging from the tall ceiling above our heads. In another room there was this big - and I mean BIG - blue whale but not a skeleton of it this time; it was a massive sculpture of it - bigger than a boat.  

    Then we got shown to our rooms in the hostel in which we were staying. 

    On the Tuesday, we went to the Science Museum. We went to the earthquake simulator, and we stood in the shop and then the floor shook to make it feel like it was a real earthquake. Then after the science museum we went to the Tower of London where Anne Boleyn was beheaded and saw some of the History of London and England. 

    Still on the Tuesday after the Tower of London we went on a boat trip to the London eye; the London eye was fun, and we got to see the beautiful view up above. After the London eye, we went to a west end show to watch Matilda the Musical. It was amazing my favourite character was Ms Trunchbull. The bit that surprised me was how Ms Trunchbull flung the kid by her hair. 

    On the last day, on Wednesday, we went to the Harry potter Studios - it was so fun. We got to go on to the train and into the great hall. I had the best time there. There was this dragon that ran towards us, and it was scary and it blew fire. After that, we could not see it. Still in the Harry Potter Studios we were allowed to go into the forest where the spiders were, and the spiders jumped down and up. Also, in the big cave laid Aragog the mother of all spiders. 

    After that, we got in the coach and got back at 9:30. We had an incredible time on residential and seeing the sights of London.

  • Year 2 at Northam Burrows

    Published 21/06/24

    What a fantastic day of learning we had at Northam Burrows! The children went on a coastline walk looking at different coastal features, completed mini-missions in the dunes looking for different plants and animals, and then scrambled over Pebble Ridge to meet the lifeguards and find out about beach safety. The children managed so well in the heat, and we all had a thoroughly enjoyable day.

  • Cricket in the Sun!

    Published 14/06/24

    On Wednesday, Mr Downing and Mrs Gilbert had the pleasure of taking nine children to a cricket event held at Instow cricket ground. Over 300 children from schools across North Devon played four matches across the day. The Fremington team had a mixed day in terms of results but their skills and knowledge improved bowl on bowl and they represented themselves and the school brilliantly. It was a joy to take them. Thank you to parents/carers for supporting with transporting children to and from the event.

  • Year 5 Eden Project

    Published 07/06/24

    Year 5 had an awesome day at the Eden Project. We explored both the tropical and Mediterranean biomes throughout the day. We collected data about the sizes of the leaves and measured the temperature and humidity at different locations within the biomes. We then thought about how global warming would impact the growth of the plants in both climates. Some of us also braved the rope bridge up in the canopy walk! What a tiring, but amazing day!
