What a busy Friday we had. The children looked so lovely and joined in to raise money for this cause by wearing something red. Looking so splendid! Thank you for all the extra donations that arrived today and for buying the noses. We completely sold out of all our noses and will count all the donations and announce the total raised. Thank you 🍎
Do you love reading? WE LOVE READING and we want to pass on the joy of reading to all our children at North Tawton Primary School. To spread this reading bug more widely we need your help. There are some avid readers out there so help us by sending in a photograph of you and your family sharing the love of reading. How do you enjoy a book? Snuggled up in front of the fire? In bed before lights out? Or under the covers with a torch after lights out? In the garden in the sun? Reading together? Reading alone? Get snappy and capture some photos of you and your children and send them to Mrs Ware or your child's class teacher so we can make a wonderful display and spread the joy.

Mr Foreman is making sure that we are all keeping active and has even kitted out the teachers with their own PE kits!
Mr Stronge from SAINTS leads the PE sessions every Thursday and Friday. There was great hilarity when completing the challenges set this week as 'team work' was the theme.
Some classes (Y1, Y2, Y3, Y4) took part in cross-country running led by Okehampton Community and Recreation Association (OCRA). The weather was perfect and all the children completed the challenge. Tokyo here we come! Get ready Y5 and Y6 – your cross-country turn will be soon.
Congratulations and Thank you
We have given each family a final family challenge to mark the end of lockdown learning. Some eager beavers had made them by Friday evening. This little momento was sent to each family to say well done and congratulations to every child for the hard work and perseverance shown throughout the lockdown period. We have been very impressed with how the children have settled back into the school routines, especially the children in Oak and Chestnut classes, who have had the additional staff changes. Thank you, and enjoy building! It looks very fiddly.
Welcome to Miss Prince in Oak Class and Mrs Doyle/Mrs Denney in Chestnut Class.
Well done to all the children for settling back to work so quickly. Reading remains very high on the agenda and lockdown has seen an increase in children engaging with books, which is very encouaging news. With the new reading challenge, Mrs Ware is hoping that everyone gets involved to maintain this trend and our love of reading now we are back at school. So get thinking and clicking away to capture your children enjoying reading!
Here's hoping you have a lovely weekend with your family staying safe.
We are hoping to see a return to some of the usual fundraising activities in the Summer Term. Watch this space! Ideas, thoughts and suggestions are very welcome.
Keep safe and thank you for your continued support,
