Class 2 fully immersed themselves in a world of lego for our visit from the ‘Lego Man’.
They enthusiastically took on the challenge of building different parts of Cockwood and the surrounding areas to consolidate our work on maps.
The afternoon kicked off our history topic in style by focussing on the incredible engineer, Brunel. (more…)
Class 2 have immersed themselves in Forest School this term.
We have enjoyed an array of activities such as bark rubbing, drawing with charcoal, learning to light fires with flint and cotton wool as well as making bow and arrows, slingshots and dream catchers.
The children performed a lovely harvest celebration at the church, where they told the story of Noah, sang amazing songs and reflected on how we need to think carefully about our wonderful world.
The rainbow harvest was enjoyed by parents and our new vicar, the Reverend Richard Allen, who thought the children were amazing.
Another great competition was held this year and the talent was amazing!
Our Judges Dan Fowell, Jo Trixon, Mel Wolden and special guest judge Spilkey Walliams
enjoyed watching all the acts.
We had a wonderful afternoon enjoying our Sports Day on the village green.
The children were amazing, as they competed against each other in a huge variety of races and events. Thank you to all of the families who joined us to make the afternoon so enjoyable.
This week children from Key Stage 2 had the opportunity to attend the exciting ‘Mix Festival’ held at Dartington Hall in Totnes. Children from primary schools across Devon attended this day of workshops and performances from steel pans to the Royal Marines Band!
Throughout the day, the children experienced new instruments and learnt about their origins, as well as learning how to use new technology to compose musical pieces online. The children attended workshops where they learnt how to play violins, taiko drums, Brazilian samba drums, steel pans, as well attending a ‘have a go’ session where they were able to play any instrument they wanted! A particular highlight of the day was also having their faces painted with ‘The Mix’ festival logo.
Pupils and staff are enjoying another super day at Cockwood, with some brilliant World Book Day costumes on show.
We are celebrating reading and the children are taking part in amazing activities centred on fantastic stories and books throughout the day.
Class 2 learned about the New Year celebration of the 3 Kings in France.
This takes place each year on the first Sunday after New Year. It is called La Fête des Rois or Épiphanie.
This celebration centres round a king or queen chosen for the day and a cake La Galette de rois (the cake of Kings). We tasted some French cakes and a king was chosen from a lucky number on a plate.
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.
The children were delighted to welcome members from TADFAS (Teignbridge Association of Fine Art Society) to school to share the artwork from Class 1 based on Italian architecture.
