Friday was a particularly fun-filled and sunny day. The children all looked wonderful wearing yellow and blue clothes in support of Ukraine and this non-uniform day raised a staggering £331.79. Thank you to everyone who donated so generously. The money will be paid to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal to support children and families who are fleeing from the conflict. We were also delighted to receive many, many donations for the 'Little Bags of Help' collection for the charity Josephine's Star.
On Friday, the children all had the chance to take part in circus skills workshops, very kindly funded by our PTA. We seems to have many budding circus performers amongst our pupils and it was lovely to see everyone outside having fun in the sun.
Last Friday, we had 6 cases of Covid19 amongst our pupils, 4 in Y1, 1 in Y2 and 1 in Y5. I haven't been informed of any further cases over the weekend and am hopeful that most if not all of these children will be back in school tomorrow after reaching the end of their isolation periods.

A lovely message received from the staff at Parkland's Leisure Centre
We would just like to acknowledge how well behaved and polite the children from South Tawton Primary School are. The staff here have commented on numerous occasions now of how the children always say hello upon arrival and thank the staff. We have several primary schools use the centre but your pupils have really stood out to the team here. They are a pleasure to have here and we wanted to share this with you.

We are so grateful to have received an amazing donation of £200 from the local charity Yeo Bequest. A huge thank you for their support. Every penny donated is spent on activities and resources to enrich our children's learning and school experience.
Plus a thank you to you all for remembering us when shopping through Easyfundraising and Amazon Smile. Last month we received an Amazon Smile donation of £58! Plus we had our largest Easyfundraising payment ever of £152!!
