Dear North Tawton Friends and Families,
It was lovely to see so many of you at the Sharing Assembly today. After our on line sharing assemblies last year, the children really do benefit from speaking to a live audience to build their confidence in oracy and presentation skills.
Black History Month
Answers to the quiz from last week:
We specifically focus on learning about Black history during October as it is a part of our history which has been underrepresented. Our Trust and our school staff are working hard to make sure our children learn about a whole range of people, countries and cultures throughout the year.
Photo day arrangements
If you have nursery children who are not at our school on Wednesday, or pre-nursery age children, you are welcome to come at 8am for a family photo. We will arrange for individual and group photos throughout the day.
