The first children selected to be in the Always Club enjoyed their special reward this week.
If children are always working hard, polite, kind and try their best then they are selected to become part of the Always Club.
This year at Cockwood School we have decided to recognise and reward the children who ALWAYS do their best, who are ALWAYS polite, who ALWAYS smile, who ALWAYS do the right thing and make the right choices.
Awards were given at the end of the Autumn term to the child in each class who has read the most amount of words.
It was very close between a number of children but we had three clear winners.
Staff and pupils were delighted to share a special assembly at the end of Autumn term to award those children who have put in exceptional effort.
The awards were for either Reading, Writing or Maths and three children were chosen from each class.
Christmas Performance 2018 – Lights Camel Action!
The entire school performed an amazing show at the Langstone Cliff Hotel this week to hundreds of parents and friends.
Pupils and staff organised a fantastic community event, supported by the Big Lottery Fund. Residents of the village, pupils from other local schools and members of the community visited the school and enjoyed a range of activities. The Mayor Martin Wrigley was also a special guest at the event.
Even in the pouring rain, the children performed songs and dances under the gazebos, and then visitors could enjoy a lovely fair trade cafe with superb cream teas and take part in some fair trade games and competitions. They also had the opportunity to read with the children, learn the guitar and practise their cross stitch.
We held our annual show this week.
Once again the acts were varied and very entertaining, enjoyed by the judges and the audience alike!
The talent was outstanding and the comments from our judges Aisha Flewin and Simon Cruel were very encouraging!
This week the young musicians of Cockwood School displayed their wonderful talents in our annual Music Showcase. Children from across the school came together to perform to a crowd in the Village Hall for both parents and friends, wowing the audience with some super musical pieces.
Our current music teachers specialise in keyboard, drums and guitar. We were able to see an array of performances across these instruments from pupils of all levels. It was truly fantastic to see even beginner performers take to the stage with such confidence. A big well done to all those children involved, and a big thank you to our music teachers for their continued hard work.
Well done to Powderham House for winning the house trophy for this term.
Congratulations must also go to our Platinum Award Winners for outstanding levels of progress.
Cockwood School received well over 1100 votes to win the Dartmoor Christmas Tree competition. As the smallest school who entered this was a brilliant achievement.
With our winnings of £250 we have organised a special swimming treat for all of the children.
Thank you to Dartmoor Christmas Trees and to all of the parents who supported our school. (more…)
