Okehampton Adventure

Today Class 4 returned from our five day residential to Okehampton. We have all had a great time, all be it non-stop and exhausting, but the children have done us all proud with their enthusiasm, encouragement of each other in the activities that pushed us outside our comfort zones and how we have all laughed.  We have; walked across a foggy moor, cycled to a gorge, traversed up and down the gorge, scrambled up and down a cliff face, faced our fear of heights on the high ropes (Miss J lost her chocolate cake pudding four times over that night in attempting to encourage children to  go that little bit further on the high ropes and had to get more), practiced our archery skills, spent the day 'bobbing' about on the river on kayaks, canoes & our own rafts, built campfires and worked as a team.   It has been a pleasure to have spent this week with Class 4 and we have all enjoyed our week with the children.  Miss J, Mrs Mc and Corry (Governor)

Tri-Golf Success!

On Wednesday Mrs Meek and Mrs Swift took class 3 superstars Pixie, Lauren, Kitty, Bluebell, Joel, Joliffe, Lucas, Marlowe, Oscar W, and Levi to Bryanston School to participate in Tri-Golf at the Dorset School Games. They were delighted to win 1st place overall! With over 20 schools taking part this was a huge achievement. They had a wonderful day in the sunshine and all had great fun, the children worked incredibly hard and we are extremely proud of their attitude and determination, as champions they each received a gold medal, a day to remember! A huge well done.

Country Dancing

On Wednesday, pupils from Class 1, 2 and 3 delighted an audience of parents and families as they performed some country dancing routines. It was an idyllic scene as the children danced on our field in the sunshine.  My thanks to Miss Wakefield for teaching the children their routines and encouraging a love of this traditional dance which was evident by the smiles on their faces!

Science Day – Monday 25th June

Next Monday, we have a very exciting day planned as the children will be experimenting with science! They will be carrying out a range of activities during the day and trying out science experiments with household items.  There may also be a visit from Professor Potty and guest.

Our 150th Birthday Service for Parents and Bishop Karen – 27th June 10am

Following on from our fantastic celebrations last Friday, Bishop Karen will be coming to school to take part in a special service. We would like to invite parents and families to the service which will take place on Wednesday 27th June at 10am at Church.  The children and staff will be sharing, once again their learning in a creative way and hope you are able to come and celebrate with us.

Breakfast Club

Should you wish your child/ren to attend breakfast club, they must be booked in the day before. There have been cases recently when children turn up unexpectedly.  If this happens you may find that either the club is not running or the club is full and we will not be able to accommodate your child on that day.  All breakfast club bookings should be paid in advance or on the day, in cash with the correct money, or through SIMS Agora.  Provisions have to be bought in advance for the club and the school is not in a financial position to cover these costs.

Our attendance award

Congratulations to class 4 who won the award this week – keep up the hard work!

Stars of the week

Congratulations to our stars of the week - well done you!

Class 1 Freddie, Class 2 Charlie, Class 3 Devon. 

Yours sincerely

Emma Roberts
