Tuesday saw the performance of ‘Oh, what a knight!’ by our KS2 children.
The performance was fantastic and I would like to say thank you to all of the children for their hard work! As I said on the night there must have been some serious line learning going on at home for the children to perform so well done parents and thank you for your support! The effort put in by the staff was inspirational! All coming together to produce a great team effort! Pictures on Flickr! Well done!
There’s not much else to say! We had a great day at both the afternoon and evening performances of Baubles! The cast were great and the performances were very well attended. I continue to be soooo impressed with the children’s performances and the improving quality of the speakers. Well done.
Pictures of the shows are on Flickr! Follow the link from the school website.

Can I thank all of the children, parents and staff for a wonderful afternoon of Science. So many parents came into school! All the classes were fantastic, however, I did have a favourite! The investigation showing how fossils were made and discovered was great. I loved how interactive it was and the end result did make me smile! A great investigation with some lovely language. Can I also thank the PTFA for serving refreshments in the hall.
Well done everyone, including our new pupils…
The School Council ask that all children come to school in their PJs on Friday and make a donation of at least 50p to Children in Need.
For their donation they will get a cake at break time – kindly donated by the Deli. They will be entered into a draw to win a homemade cake.
We only ask that the children wear suitable footwear at school – NO slippers.
Thank you for your continued support.

It’s winter. Winter in Devon. Winter in Devon by the sea!
Please can you ensure that your child comes to school in a waterproof coat. We do like the children to get some fresh air in a school day. That means if the weather allows we will go outside for a break and run around. Some children are still coming into school without a proper coat.
We also go outside for Sea School and for PE. There’s an old saying… there’s no such thing as bad weather – only bad clothing! Please can you make sure (for the health, safety and welfare of your child) that they bring the correct clothing to school for the activities they will be taking part in. A waterproof coat and wellies for Sea School and a complete change of clothes for PE including footwear (we go on the field when it’s muddy!).
Thank you. We will always make sure the best interests of the children are at the heart of our decisions!
Teachers are increasing using flipped learning to create better learning in the classroom. We used to start researching a topic in school and then write about it! Now, teachers are asking that a child becomes more of an expert in their chosen area BEFORE they come to school. Say, for example, the class are working on explorers. The teacher might ask the children to find out about an explorer at home and make notes or prepare a presentation about the life of that explorer. Then, when they come into school, they can use the information that they already know to do some stunning work!
So, please help your child undertake their home learning. If you need more information about a home learning or flipped learning task then please see the teacher.
We have our first Parent’s Evenings coming up for this academic year. All lists are near classrooms so you can sign up. I will be asking the Office to contact parents who haven’t made an appointment yet.
At the parents evenings we will be telling you about your child’s learning in their new class. Where they are strong and where they need some support. We will show you their books and discuss understanding and presentation. One of our aims for the children is that they have the responsibility for their learning. The teacher will be discussing how your child is working towards our high expectations. It is an unwritten understanding that we at school will work as hard as we can for your child – with the expectation that you will do the same for your child. With that in mind the class teacher will let you know how you can support your child’s learning at home. This may be practice or it may be preparation for new learning.
We look forward to seeing you at some point during the week. I am available to talk as well. You don’t need an appointment to come and discuss any issue with me during the evenings.
