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.
The children were really enthusiastic to find out all about marine litter today in a workshop from ‘ Blue Marine Foundation’.
As promoted by Sir David Attenborough on BBC Blue Planet, the children found out about the problem marine litter is causing in our waters and on a global scale. They discovered the types of litter found on our local beaches and how it effects the marine environment. The children were surprised to find out how some of it got into the sea and they thought about what they could do to help this global crisis. Watch this space!
The whole school enjoyed a lovely Harvest Festival celebration at St. Mary’s Church, Cofton.
The theme this year was Appreciation which is our school value this half term.
Each class made a super contribution with Class 1 delivering some first class readings! It was wonderful to see so many parents and carers there.
Class 2 explored the way different liquids behave whilst making Halloween potions.
Lots of fun, and amazing science learning too….they really impressed us with their ‘science talk’ and collaborative learning!
