Powderham House (yellow) have won the overall trophy for most house points over the year.
Our Year 6 children received the trophy on behalf of their house team.
Year 6 delighted staff, pupils and parents with their very special version of ‘Carpool Karaoke’.
They had some special guests in attendance including members of the Royal family and the Prime Minister!
Pupils and Staff performed the musical Beauty and the Beast at the Langstone Cliff Hotel this week.
It was a brilliant show, with Year 6 students taking the lead.
Well done to all who supported this event and for making the evening so amazing!
Class 1 have just returned from an amazing three day fun-packed residential to London. They visited: Harry Potter World, the Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Legoland and also went to see Aladdin in the West End.
Class 1 have been studying ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ so everyone really enjoyed walking through 4, Privet Drive and seeing the flying motorbike. All the children wore a cloak and took a ride on a broomstick, they also had a lesson in how to use a magic wand! (more…)
On Friday, children in Class 1 were able to go to Powderham Castle to watch a special performance by the Meridies Piano Trio.
We were invited to the prestigious James Wyatt music room to listen to an hour long performance covering pieces by Debussy and Haydn, and even a world exclusive composition! (more…)
The children at Cockwood had a super time at their recent Taiko drumming workshop, where the children had a wonderful time playing big Japanese drums and learning new rhythms.
Hannah- Jasmine from Taiko Journey came in for the day and conducted exciting workshops for children in Years 2-6 in the Village Hall. All children had a chance to play the drums, learning the special way to hold the sticks and hit the drum, as well as new rhythm patterns and Japanese phrases.
The children had an amazing day, and commented on how much fun they had. Many couldn’t believe how tiring it was, lifting their arms up high for every strike! It was truly an experience we won’t forget, with lots of children asking for another workshop next year!
We enjoyed World Book Day at Cockwood, with the children and staff dressing up as their favourite character and taking part in some lovely reading based activities.
Well done to everyone who made such an effort with costumes.
Children spent the afternoon designing and testing their own rockets in our science competition.
It was great fun and the teams gained points for super designs and rockets that flew the furthest.
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.
All the children had a fantastic learning opportunity today when they had workshops inside the ‘space dome’.
Class 2 and 3 learnt about Space and the Planets
Class 1 explored Evolution and Inheritance with Charles Darwin
