Stars of the week
Big Robins Class: Kit for being a great observer and taking in what goes on around him. He has been very thoughtful and kind towards his friends and has helped them make decisions about how they can get even better at a given skill! Arnold for a huge improvement in his creative skill – firstly his willingness to join in with art activities and secondly for the amount of detail he put in his still life drawing of fruit.
Grasshoppers Class: Ebba and Alec for some superb homework. Brilliant ideas in class too. Well done!
Caterpillars Class: Luca for a wonderful piece of writing in English about Traction Man’s adventures! Enya for being very sensible and supportive when talking about E-Safety and being safe online.
Dragonflies Class: Quinn and Felix for working well with their partners in P.E.
Beetles Class: Daisy R for showing so much care for her work, really thinking about her presentation, slowing down a little and creating work to be proud of. Leotie for persevering through a difficult week, remaining positive and thinking of others
Bees Class: Sophia for acts of kindness. Harry for being great with the younger children (….and asking to do more maths!!)

Dear Parents, Teachers and Friends,
Last week, I stood down as chairman of the PTFA, as I have a fantastic job opportunity in Chagford. I have enjoyed running as chair the last 2 years, organising events and raising money for the school. I have met and worked with so many lovely people and I really can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication. The good news is Nicola Leaman has offered to take on the chairman role which I am so pleased , so our PTFA can carry on and raise money to help our primary school. Thank you all once again so much.
