Dear Parents and Friends
What a difference a week makes in terms of weather! Last week snow, this week gales. Unfortunately today has resulted in a day of indoor play times with the gusts and rain creating havoc over Chagford; including a power cut for over an hour which resulted in the planned lunch not able to be cooked! Mrs Bennie improvised and made nutritious sandwiches and crisps for the children along with their usual desserts, so everyone was happy by the end of lunchtime.
On Tuesday I was lucky enough to take the Year 3 pupils to attend a Movement and Dance festival organised by OCRA at Okehampton College. The children were able to experience multi skills, modern dance, trampolining and the use of the inflatable tumbling trackway. They had a great time and I am sure we have a lot of budding gymnasts after seeing the college young sports leaders demonstrating their tumbling skills! They were very impressive. As usual our children were a credit to the school with their enthusiasm and good manners so well done to you all.
Next week is the last week before we break up for half term; cannot quite believe how quickly this first spring half term has gone but hopefully once we get back we will begin to see definite signs of better weather and the nights drawing out. Look out for proposed dates for your child’s class parent consultations due in the week commencing 4th March 2019.
Have a great weekend.
