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.

During Half Term we have had some major work to convert part of the heating system. This work is ongoing and will cause some disruption, mainly to the administration section of the school. Please bear with us whilst this work continues.
Work progresses on the extension at the front of the school despite the delays caused by the weather. Pedestrians should continue to use the path in the Parish Field to access the Somerlea entrance to the school or via the main gate on Silver Street. The pedestrian path by the drive may only be used at the beginning and end of the school day to access the main playground. The gate to the school drive must remain closed during school occupation. Thank you for your patience during this period of disruption.
We welcome everyone back for the start of 2014. If you have over indulged during the Christmas break, look at the Change 4 Life Taster Recipes we have sent out for some ideas on smart swaps.
Bring in your filled bags on 31st January (no earlier please as we have no room to store).

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.
