Welcome back to everyone and we hope that you all had an enjoyable Easter holiday. Miss Stevie Wise has returned from her maternity leave and is teaching with Miss Stephanie Rowse in Elm class.
*Well done to Elm Class for a wonderful assembly this morning and thank you to the parents who came along to support them. For many of the children it is their first time performing in front of an audience and they did very well indeed.
Many thanks to the parents who came along to see Maple Class assembly this morning. The children have been working very hard on their ‘Fire of London’ project which is part of our whole school ‘Building our World’ topic.
Dear Parents/Carers, This week, the winning team who was awarded our ‘Star team trophy’ was the Portland team (blue) with 122 points. Congratulations to the Portland team! Other team scores were as follows: 2nd Clifton (red) with 113 3rd Belmont (green) with 110 4th Sandford (yellow) with 107 We are pleased to announce that our winning team for this half term is Clifton (red) team with 707 team points.
We have had our favourite local story teller, David Heathfield, back in school this week and he presented an assembly for the whole school, as well as running a staff meeting to follow. As always, he had the children and staff spell bound, with his inspirational story telling skills.
Our house points system across the school has started extremely well with all of our pupils gaining lots of team points for a variety of reasons. Our first three days back Portland (blue team) were the winners and this week, being a full week, Clifton (red) team have been awarded the trophy.
Happy New Year to you all and we hope that you have all enjoyed Christmas with your families. The children seem very happy to be back at school and we have been spending our first three days this week working on a mini e-safety project across the school.
Dear Parents/Carers, The term seems to have gone very quickly and once again we find ourselves approaching another new year. Many thanks to the FONS committee and helpers for organising a highly successful school Christmas Fayre which raised a grand total of £832.
The whole school has visited the Phoenix theatre this week to see the Christmas show of ‘The King with Donkey’s Ears’ performed by Quirk theatre productions. The children have all thoroughly enjoyed the shows and for many of them it is the first time that they have visited a real live theatre.
We are delighted that FONS have part funded for the school to visit the Phoenix theatre in Exeter, to see the Christmas show of the ‘The King with Donkey’s Ears’ performed by Quirk theatre group. There are two performances arranged as below: KS1 9th December starting at 10am KS2 11th December starting at 10am This is a wonderful opportunity for our children to see a live theatre group performing in an actual theatre setting and for many of them it will be their first time.
