Our KS2 pupils had the fantastic opportunity to perform on stage at the New Hall Theatre in Tiverton.

On Wednesday 28th June they performed a matinee show to our KS1 children and performed again in the evening  to over 200 people and were absolutely amazing!

The talent at our school is, as always, absolutely outstanding and we are very proud of them. Well done to Mrs Lockyer for co-ordinating, rehearsing and producing this fabulous show.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Carol Service at St Mary’s Church yesterday. Our KS1 one children sang songs from their Nativity ‘It’s a Baby’, which was magical.

Christmas House Day and Lantern Parade 2016

Friday 2nd December 2016 – Christmas House Day

 

Today was our Christmas house day. The children enjoyed making tree decorations, hats and crackers.  Evidence of their fantastic work can be seen on our Christmas tree and around the school.  The house day is a fantastic opportunity to see the children of all ages interacting with one another, which reinforces what caring and helpful children we have in our school.

It is also a fantastic opportunity for our parents to learn alongside their children and join in the community spirit of our school.

 

Saturday 3rd December 2016 – Lights Brigade!

Pupils and their family members joined together with some of our staff and met at Longmead in Hemyock, to walk together to represent our school. The parade started just after 6pm and hundreds of people from our local community were there.

The children carried lanterns they had made, as the procession wound itself through the streets of Hemyock.  The procession walked through Hemyock Castle and in to St Mary’s Church Yard. Our school choir sang the theme tune to Polar Express as the train was illuminated across the church to the tower to turn on the snowflake light.

'Harvests around the World'

Our Community Harvest Celebration was a great success again this year. The children performed their songs outside and sang beautifully. Afterwards the school hall was packed out with parents tasting some of the delicious food the children had prepared for them. Each class has been studying ‘Harvests around the World’ and work on Harvest in their chosen country was on display. The classes had also spent an afternoon cooking produce from the country of the studies to serve and sell to delighted visitors.

The ‘tin to get in’ gifts will be delivered by our School Councillors to the Cameo Club at The Health Living Centre on Monday.

Thank you to everyone who contributed and to our PTFA for serving refreshments.

'Pride of Norse'

We are delighted to inform you that our fantastic kitchen staff have won the ‘Pride of Norse’ award 2015, being judged the best Norse kitchen team in Devon.

Our Kitchen Manager, Jacquie Marlborough, and her assistants, Tasha Morgan and Anna Jordan, will receive their award at a special presentation at the Holiday Inn, Norwich on 9th October.

They have also been nominated for the ‘Team of the Year Award’ for the whole of the UK.

The kitchen team are so much part of our school and truly reflect our ethos. They take time to give individual nominations to children in recognition of their good manners. They always have a smile and often go out of their way to accommodate both pupils and staff.  The numbers eating our amazing school meals continue to increase and we are very proud to work along side them.

Queen's Day picnic

The children old and new have settled in well and are already in the swing of our topic for this term ‘Who is the Queen?’ The children started the topic with a Garden Party to honour Queen Elizabeth II, who is now the Longest Reigning British Monarch. Tables were decorated with centre pieces made by the children and picnics made for a marvellous celebration. Pre-school, parents, grand parents and members of the community shared lunch and joined in the happy occasion. Each class performed a country dance and everyone sang the National Anthem to close.

Both local newspapers to photograph and film our event. Photographs should appear in the Mid Devon Gazette next Tuesday and the film will shortly appear on their website www.middevongazette.co.uk .
