Welcome back to the start of the summer term. Spirits have been high this week and the pupils have entered into all activities with enthusiasm after their two week rest.
Year R have started the summer term full of adventurous ideas. They decided to become pirates and create their own treasure maps, inspired by the story 'The Treasure of Pirate Frank'. They also had fun playing real life 'Pop Up Pirates' and balancing items on their pirates before the sea shanty song finished.
Year 3 have started a new humanities topic of Villages, Towns and Cities and have a new book in English which links to this; it is called ‘A Walk in London’ by Salvatore Rubbino. The children have been very interested in the locations in London and have been doing their own research using the chrome books.
The Year 4 class have had a brilliant first week back after the Easter holidays. The majority of the class started a new English topic 'How to Train your Dragon' and they have already produced some fantastic descriptions of their own dragons using effective adjectives. Year 4 were very fortunate to have OCRA visit on Thursday afternoon and the children participated in a futsal competition. The sun was shining and everyone had a fantastic time! They have also been busy producing some lovely artwork, drawing dragons and making Viking boats and artefacts to go on their working wall.
Tuesday was an exciting day in Breakfast Club as we celebrated a big birthday for Ruth. The children showed how much they love Ruth with lots of cards and presents.
Breakfast club has become so popular that we have increased numbers and asked Mrs Bazeley to work alongside Ruth each morning. Even with increased capacity, the club is often still full. Please note that we will be unable to accept any children who have not booked their place in advance by 8pm on the night before the place is required.
Cross Country at Chagford Cricket Club
We had a wonderful afternoon with the cross country teams at Chagford Cricket Club on Friday. This was cross country at its finest with some tricky terrain and steep hills. All of our runners put in huge efforts to produce some very gutsy performances and excellent positions. I have not yet received the results but will share them with you next week. Well done to everyone who took part, and thank you to all the drivers and supporters.
Happy Birthday, Miss Barton
We had another big birthday on Friday and I'm sure that Miss Barton thoroughly enjoyed wearing the birthday hat and being sung to in assembly....
Thank you! We had a wonderful week for attendance last week which hopefully heralds less bugs and illnesses for the summer term. Attendance across the school was at 97% last week in comparison with 95% so far for the school year.
