Dear North Tawton Friends and Families,
Today was a first for me; in all my years of celebrating Harvest at different schools and churches, this was my first Dingle Dangle Scarecrow! The school was full of farmers, scarecrows and farm animals.
We had a great time at the church singing This Little Light of Mine, Harvest Samba and my favourite; Cauliflowers Fluffy!
Thank you for all of the Harvest donations. We had a very generous harvest of fresh food as well as cans and packets. FONTS are working had to organise and distribute hampers to people in the community.
Black History Month
In assembly this week we had our North Tawton Black History Month Quiz. Can you answer these questions? Hopefully your children can remember some of them!
9. Queen Nefatari was queen of which country?
10. What is the next line in this Bob Marley song? ‘Don’t worry about a thing…
Please be aware that toys are not allowed in school, unless the staff have made a specific request for an activity. Toys in school cause all sorts of distractions and problems. Thank you for your understanding.
I think you all know that I love dogs! Please make sure they are on a lead and are not blocking the entrance to the school. We do have some children at our school who are very anxious around dogs and have been uncomfortable coming into school. I am organising a visit from The Dogs Trust so children know how to keep safe around dogs.
Lots of events for us to look forward to!
