We had a wonderful whole school visit to Plymouth Theatre Royal to see The Enormous Turnip. It was great fun and 2 children were even chosen to go on stage! The children behaved brilliantly and we were proud to take them out!

Christmas show

Amazing! We are all so proud of the children who put on an incredible show. The stage feels smaller each year as our numbers get bigger! Well done to everyone, no matter what part you played, in the words of one parent "they all shone bright as individual stars".

Well done to a group of Y1 & Y2 children who went along to their first sports festival at Ivybridge Community College. They were fantastic, showing good skills and teamwork and as a result came 2ND out of a group of over 10 primary schools! Amazing work!

Thank you to all our families who joined the service on Sunday, it was lovely to see lots of Beavers and Cubs there. A special well done to Sadie and Poppy who laid the wreath for the school and carried the flag and to Poppy for standing in at the last moment to do a reading in church. Thank you to our forces group who made this lovely poster.

We had lots of fun being creative with apples on our apple day. We rolled apples, printed with them, painted them, pressed them to make delicious juice and did lots of baking. A great day!

Well done to our group of Years 3, 4 & 5 who took part in our first ever cross country festival in Ivybridge. They all completed their run and did us proud with great resilience, even when it got tricky and a bit wet!
