Moving Up Day Tuesday 21st July
On the last day of term, we are hoping to welcome all pupils into school to say goodbye to their old teachers and meet their new ones. Due to social distancing, we will be inviting half the class to come for the morning and the other half for the afternoon. More details of this will follow over the next week. Hopefully, the weather will be fine and many of the activities can take place outside. Attendance is not compulsory, but we would love to see the children and for them to catch up with their friends before the summer holiday.
We feel that it is really important that all children have the opportunity to attend school on this day, which will mean that some children who are currently attending will only be able to come for a morning or an afternoon session. If you are a critical worker who has already booked your child into school that day and need cover for the whole day, then please let me know and we will arrange provision for them outside of their morning or afternoon session with the new teacher.
Year 6 Leavers' Photo
We are hugely grateful to Lucy Wilson who has somehow managed to produce this wonderful year 6 Leavers' photo. Although it looks as though the children were all together for the photo, it was actually taken in several socially distanced shots and then put together. Hopefully, it will be a lovely reminder for the children of their time in South Tawton.
Thank you, Kate
A big thank you to Kate who has been covering Design and Technology as part of her home learning this week. Kate had made and donated 10 lovely, colourful masks to the school staff.
