The whole school enjoyed a lovely Harvest Festival celebration at St. Mary’s Church, Cofton.
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. We also welcomed the Reverend Alan Smith and his dog puppet- Thomas. The theme this year was Trees and links were made to our value this half term which is self -belief.
Great Britain’s Paralympic goalkeeper Dan James visited Cockwood School last week and led the children through a circuit of exercise, teaching them the importance of fitness and persevering to achieve goals.
A great afternoon and a fantastic way to exercise! It was amazing to learn about Dan’s achievements at the Paralympics – a real inspiration. (more…)
On Thursday the children in Class 3 were visited by an old friend… Sally! She came in to talk to the children about her childhood toys, her time at school and the games she used to play.
In Class 3 we are looking at toys from the past, starting with toys from within living memory. Sally brought in fantastic toys such as ‘cat’s cradle’ ‘french skipping’ and a wonderful ‘spirograph’ for the children to have a look at. She then helped us to make our own snap dragons and spinning wheels!
Pupils at Cockwood School took part in a fundraising house event at the Bear Trail.
The task was to get around the course in the quickest time, with house points being awarded at the end. A brilliant day was had by all and we look forward to seeing how much the children have raised for the PFA. (more…)
Budding business tycoons are preparing to launch into their second year of profit. The brand of mouthwatering chutney will be available to purchase at the annual Cockwood School Farmers’ Market on Cockwood Village Green.
Pupils at the tiny Cockwood School have been involved in choosing the flavours, creating packaging, pricing and production of their Harbourside Chutney range of homemade condiments.
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. (more…)
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. (more…)
