A Dawlish Learning Partnershp School

Welcome to Cockwood Primary School

At Cockwood Primary School our vision has been designed by our pupils. We have a vision which is represented through pictures and we aim to help pupils reflect on their learning and choices they make in order to become better citizens and friends to each other.

We encourage a sense of teamwork through our house system but also in everything that we do each day. Learning is a journey, which poses challenges on the way, but we encourage perseverance and independence – skills much needed in everyday life. Through our creative approach to learning and within a safe and caring environment, our children grow and succeed and provide a positive contribution to our school and community.

Last Thursday, the children at Cockwood School were able to take part in a very special workshop day, where every child could learn how to play the African drum.

Allan Kerr from Shumba Arts was with us for the whole day, and delivered 3 unique workshops using his extensive collection of drums and percussion instruments. The children learnt about the names of different drums, their origins, different types of strokes and hits, as well as taking part in a variety of call and response activities and learning African songs and rhythms.

Weather Reporting

Posted on

Throughout our topic learning this year, the children in Class 3 have been learning about seasonal changes and the weather. We have had a fantastic time being rain collectors, making weather dials and most recently becoming weather reporters! 

To prepare for our performances, we looked at weather reports from the news and discussed what the different symbols mean, whilst improving our knowledge of compass directions and parts of the UK. From this, we were able to create our own weather reports using weather words and directional language.

Biscuit Making in Class 3 

Posted on

Class 3 have been busy in Sally’s kitchen again, making yummy biscuits to take home.

The children worked hard in their groups to choose the ingredients, measure them out and mix them together to create a simple biscuit dough. When cooked, the children had a fantastic time decorating their biscuits with lots of different treats!

Every child took a biscuit home, and apparently they tasted good!

Christmas at Pennywell 

Posted on

Before Christmas, the children in Class 3 were treated to a trip to Pennywell Farm. The whole class enjoyed a special day of festivities including watching and taking part in a nativity with real animals, making cards, petting the animals and being able to have a chat with Santa! 

The children absolutely loved this day, and we couldn’t have been more proud of their behaviour throughout. A real highlight was meeting Santa, where every child received a present and spoke to him about their Christmas wish lists. 

This really was a special day for both the children and adults. A big thank you to the PFA for their contributions towards this fantastic trip. Have a look at our pictures from the day to see a glimpse of our Pennywell activities.
