Recycling Competition

Mrs Butler organised some entries into a national recycling competition and she and her children made this really useful BBQ from scrap!

Class 4 love Forest School!

Class 4 had an amazing day at Andrews Wood this week.  They learned how to build an amazing shelter from just a tarpaulin and a rope!

Music Hub

Class 4 had the great opportunity last term to go to KCC for an afternoon’s singing and playing some great new instruments.  They rounded off the sessions with a concert open to parents.

Building due to start soon on new school

We are very excited that building work will start soon on our brand new school on Woolston Fields.

Theme week discoveries

The whole school has been busy all week finding out about different religious festivals in modern Britain. Class 4 created these collages to portray the Goddess Lakshmi from Hinduism.

Anyone for Tennis?

Mr Smith took a team from Year 4 to compete at the South Devon tennis festival at Quayside on Tuesday. They all had a great afternoon of competition and ended up the winners! Well done everybody!

Great show at Netball Finals

Our team of 12 children had a great time on Thursday at ICC for the Indoor Athletics Finals. They did their best in all the different disciplines and came 6th overall.  Well done everyone.

A great win for the Netball team

One of the teams taking part in the Netball Competition this week came first, beating other local schools to the top spot.  They will progress through to the next round in a few weeks.  Well done!

To raise the profile of sport and physical activity even higher at our school, the  Sports Council (Ava & Alfie E in year 3, William, Millie R & Lilia in year 4, Ben M and Katie in year 5 and Imogen C & Alfie P in year 6) will be running a weekly challenge. Every Thursday break time they will organise a ’30 Second Sports Council Challenge’ where KS2 children can participate and compete in a variety of exercises set by the Sports Council.  The winning girl and boy from each year group (3 – 6) will receive a certificate in Celebration Assembly on Fridays and have their name announced in the newsletter.
