Guard of Honour
Eight children from Year 5 and Year 6 formed a Guard of Honour for the athletes’ parade during the Olympic Opening Ceremony. The children had a tour of the Olympic Park and met some of the athletes. Parents and friends were able to follow their progress on the day and the children left with some wonderful memories.
We are a London 2012 Get Set School. We learnt about the Olympic and Paralympic Values. We have been very lucky to have Ellie Simmonds and Lord Sebastian Coe visit our school.

Building Phase IV
Our new extension is finished and we would like to thank you for your patience whilst the work was being completed. In September we will be welcoming you to a brand new reception area. The new building has incorporated a large purpose built library for children in Key Stage 2. There are also new toilets for the children and an office. There has also been some internal work undertaken in the 1948 building. The area has been reconfigured to allow for a large meeting room, medical room, and a small office. The toilets within this section have also been upgraded.
Moving On—Phase V
With the need to provide free school meals for all the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes, there was an urgent need for an upgrade and expansion to our existing catering facilities. During the summer break, building work has taken place to enlarge the kitchen ready for September.
If you have children in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 it is VITAL that you apply for Free School Meals if you are eligible. Our government funding for 6 YEARS is linked to the number of children eligible for Free School Meals.

What an afternoon!
There are always lots of activities taking place during the school day and we thought we would share what was going on in school one afternoon.
A PE teacher visited from Cullompton Community College along with a rugby coach and they were working with Year 6 to improve their skills and knowledge of the game.
Year 5/6 were on their active break following their history presentation on Britain since 1930.
Year 5 worked throughout the school site on a science project on the dispersal of seeds.
Whilst one Year 4 class went to Exe Valley Leisure Centre to swim, the children in the other class were writing their e-books on Greece.
Year 3 classes were improving their tennis skills or their reactions through ball skills.
One Year 2 class was working in ICT on pictograms whilst the other was writing coded messages in Braille linked to their history project.
Year 1 children were working on their assembly which was being held on Friday.
In Foundation, children were being supported by a Teaching Assistant with their speech and a work experience student worked alongside staff with Reception children helping them to learn positional language.
The Bilingual Support Worker visited to work with several Polish children who are being helped daily with their English by a Teaching Assistant.
Several children enjoyed their drum or guitar lessons.
