As you may already be aware, the governing body of Cockwood Primary School applied to become an academy under the Academies Act 2010 and has now been issued with academy orders by the Secretary of State (agreeing to it becoming part of an academy) and is proposing to join the Teignmouth Learning Trust. Further information about what becoming an academy means, and how to comment on the proposals, is set out below.
Will Cockwood Primary School definitely become an Academy? (more…)
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!
The children enjoyed a fantastic performance of the production ‘Table Manners’, exploring the themes of food, friendship and difference this week.
The children in Class 3 have been enjoying the last of the autumn sunshine, and recently walked to Cofton Church and back again….a long way for such little legs!
Class 1 experienced virtual reality in Science this week. Children wore ‘virtual t-shirts’ to explore their insides!
The children were fascinated looking for their gallbladder and pancreas hidden underneath their liver and stomach. They were also able to look inside their small intestine and see the journey that our food travels.
Year 3,4,5 and 6 pupils were lucky enough to experience a virtual reality workshop last week. The workshop included Class 1 visiting mountains and volcanoes around the world and Class 2 children exploring a range of famous landmarks in London and across the UK. This innovative approach to learning took the children on a whistle-stop tour of places around the globe and allowed them to experience total surround viewing of key sites.
Class 1 used the experience to inspire some fabulous short story writing about a volcano erupting.
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!
A group of pupils enjoyed a super day out at Wimbledon. They travelled by train and saw some amazing tennis on Court 1, to include the Venus Williams match.
A brilliant day was had by all and the children were incredibly well behaved.
This week Class 3 performed their annual assembly to showcase their learning from the year.
We decided to base the assembly around the children’s favourite film at the moment- ‘The Greatest Showman’, by creating ‘The Greatest Class 3 Show!’ The children had a super time learning the songs and dances, and we all enjoyed watching them perform with enthusiasm and energy!
