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.  

Children In Need

Thank you to everyone for supporting this.  A fantastic £268 has been raised.  The cake competition was won by William and Maya won the sweets in the jar.

Home Learning 

Owls:  When reading over half term, pick out 5 new words that you had to look up the meaning of . Write the sentence in your reading book that contains this word and then apply this word and write a new sentence with it in.

Otters: Create a poster about a wheeled vehicle of your choice. Your poster could include information about what it is used for, what they look like, how they are useful and a picture of what it is. Think about our research of wheels through time to think about some different vehicles!

Hedgehogs:  Year 2 spellings have been sent home.  Year 1 spellings – ask, me, is, do, they, said.
