.Dear North Tawton Families and Friends,
What a fun packed, fabulous half term!
I have really enjoyed working with the brilliantly talented and caring North Tawton staff team, what an asset to the school they are.
I have loved getting to know the children, seeing them work hard, achieve goals and grow in confidence.
When I am not in classes with children or working with staff here at North Tawton, I have been in meetings and conferences working with colleagues across the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust co constructing and developing the ways in which we are working together to give every child the best education and welfare we possibly can. We are working in partnership across the schools to share skills so that every child in every school benefits from the rich and diverse expertise we have across the Trust. It is exciting work and I look forward to sharing more with you over the coming weeks.
I have really enjoyed my first six weeks as your Principal and I look forward to the next half term, after a rest in between!
Thank you to those of you who joined us for our sharing assembly today. It was lovely to share with you what the children have been learning over the last six weeks. We had a wonderful variety of insights into our curriculum including rhyming couplet poetry, a call and response song, wise advice to keep healthy, bold scientific diagrams, an exciting propulsion demonstration, historical research, entertaining storytelling and marvelous maths work.
I was really impressed with how well the children spoke about their learning. We have been focussing upon developing oracy skills this year. It was so good to see the children confidently speaking in full expanded sentences. Well done to all of our learners, I know I speak for the staff and parents when I say you made us very proud of you.
Do look at the class blogs each week to see what the classes have been learning.
