Children have been working on making the school's scarecrow entry for the Devon County Show.

Maths Workshop

Children enjoyed taking part in the maths workshops and the talk from local artist Jane Edden.


We had a brilliant time completing the challenge.  The children showed character and perseverance with this.  Thank you to everyone for supporting the event by bringing in bikes/scooters and sponsoring children.  So far a fantastic £1800 has been raised.

Drumming Workshop

Children enjoyed taking part in a drumming workshop by Shumba Arts.

Dance Festival

Children really enjoyed taking part in the dance festival at GTS.


Well done to the children who took part in the football festival with other local school at GTS.

STEM Spaghetti Challenge

Children in Owls enjoyed taking part in designing a bridge of spaghetti and marshmallows to hold an egg.

Science Workshop

Children very much enjoyed taking part in the science workshops making compressed air cars.

Gold Sing Up Award

The school has successfully achieved a gold Sing Up award.  Thank you to Miss Moore for leading singing and organising opportunities over the last few years to achieve this.

School Allotments

Children have applied to have an allotment plot.  They will be provided with equipment and seedlings to maintain these and be able to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers.  


Our whole school attendance last term was 98%.  Well done to Owls and Hedgehogs who  jointly achieved the highest class attendance. 

Christmas Presentation & Fayre

Well done to all the children for their part in The Stick Man.  Thank you to the PTA and everyone who helped and supported these events - £528 was raised. 

Operation Encompass

The school is part of this joint project with Devon and Cornwall police.  Operation Encompass is the early reporting on to schools that a child or young person has been exposed to domestic abuse.  This goes live on the 27th November. 


The school has received two kind donations from The Beaford Village Autumn show and the Angela Gallagher Memorial fund.  The £350 received will be used to purchase new gardening equipment.  

Home Learning 

Owls: Using only the number 4 as many times as you like with any operation (x ÷ + -), see how many numbers you can make from 1-20.

Otters: Write your own story that includes our 'sc' words that have been our spelling focus for this week (science, scene, abscess, scissors, ascend, descend, scented, crescent). 

Hedgehogs: Year 2 spellings – through, though, thought.  Year 1 sound of the week – igh.
