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.
Class 3 performed their annual assembly this week, called ‘Under The Sea’.
Children dressed up as sea animals and story characters for the show, and impressed the crowd with their confident speaking and super dance moves! It was wonderful to see the children perform in front of their peers and parents, and we are very proud of all they have achieved.
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.
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.
In Foundation we have been celebrating all the fantastic independent writing going on around the class.
We have created a ‘Writing Club’ that anyone can take part in everyday, where there are many different things to write about! You can make cards, recipes, stories or even letters to Santa!
This half term the children in Class 3 are working on their hockey skills!
We have been busy learning how to control the ball; including pushing the ball, stopping it and moving it around the cones carefully using our sticks.
This week we have been looking at using what we know about counting, numbers and number symbols to start to make our own number sentences.
The children have been working hard to link all the elements together to use dinosaurs and bears to create their own number sentences. We have been really impressed with their super accurate counting, and how the children love to challenge themselves.
