This week at school...
Thursday saw our much anticipated music concert take place. We are proud of each and every child, from Year R to 6, who performed the class songs, solos and instrumental pieces, they were super to listen to.
Thank you to all those who came and supported. Even though it was not the open air event we planned we hope you enjoyed it.
A huge thank you to Paul Tucker, who has kindly given his time, expertise and equipment to ensure that the sound and music was professional. To the PTA who provided refreshments and of course our wonderful Mrs Dunn who organised the whole thing!
Mama Mia – what a show!
Those watching the Year 5 and 6 performances of Mama Mia on Monday and Tuesday will be in for a treat. The school had a sneak peek and watched the dress rehearsal on Friday, the show got everyone singing along- especially the staff.
In our classes…
Some Year 4 pupils enjoyed a morning at Okehampton College taking part in the area football tournament on Wednesday.
Mrs Woolnough has taught the Year 3 children about muscles and bones using her physiotherapy knowledge.
Year R pupils have been honing their watercolour skills.
Years 1 & 2 visited Rosemoor Gardens and Exmouth beach this week.

Summer Fayre and Barbecue
Yet again our PTA pulled together to create a super Summer event, their final of the school year. It was lovely to see so many people there enjoying the refreshments, socialising and stalls. Run entirely by volunteers who wish to help our school, the PTA work tirelessly to ensure that our children can have those extra treats and enrichment activities at school. We are most grateful for all they do and how it is given back to the children. Thank you all for supporting the events.
Sports Day plans- Wednesday 19th July
We very much hope that the weather will be good enough for us to hold our Sports Day on Weds 19th July. The arrangements remain the same.
Families are welcome to come along and watch their children (and run in the adults and toddlers races if they wish) and also take part in a family picnic lunch. Bring your own refreshments, there will be no PTA stall. Please bring your own fold up chairs or rugs to sit on.
Timings are as follows:
10-12 Years R,1 & 2 races. School children sit with their class.
10-12 Finals of the KS2 field events (throwing and jumping). Your child will be told if they are taking part in the finals.
12-1 Lunchtime. Families are welcome to bring a picnic and eat with their child on the field. School packed lunches have been booked via School Gateway.
1-3:30 Years 3,4,5&6 races School children sit with their class.
Please send your child with a sun hat and water bottle. Children can wear trainers or plimsolls, plain PE shorts and a T Shirt in their house colour (red, blue, yellow or green). No football kits please. Children will change in class, so please send in the coloured T shirt on the day.
Please note, school dinners in our final week are a little different to the usual menu. Marina in the office has kindly put the various choices for each day on School Gateway and also emailed parents a menu.
