  • Let's Talk Teenagers

    Published 26/05/22

    Parents of teenage children will now have a second chance to attend a trailblazing series of webinars piloted earlier this year.

    The ‘Let’s Talk Teenagers’ webinars were set up to help parents and carers understand and support their teenagers to navigate the challenges of today’s world.

    The first sessions were sold out and with demand so high a second series has now been planned to run next month (Wednesdays June 15, 22 and 29).

    The ‘Let’s Talk Teenagers’ webinars were designed by the South Devon and Dartmoor Community Safety Partnership and rolled out across Devon in partnership with other local organisations that work together to keep children and young people safe, support parents and reduce crime and antisocial behaviour.

    Places for the courses were initially limited to 200, but a staggering 749 parents and carers attended one or more of the sessions in total, and the feedback received was highly positive.

    A Day in the life of an Anglo-Saxon 8B 8N and 8P

    Pupils in 8B, 8N and 8P recently went to visit the living histories

    Saxon village at Wildwood Escot in Ottery St Mary.

    We had a fantastic day learning about how the Saxons lived; how they made and foraged food, how they made tools and toys and exploring what their houses and shelters were like. We made bread in the cob oven and a clothes pin in the forge. We also got to see some amazing animals including wolves up close!
