Dear North Tawton Friends and Families,
And so we come to the end of our very short term!
This week our Year 2 have completed their SATS. They did a great job of keeping calm and showing us their best work. After the break, Y1 will have their phonics assessments and Y4 their times tables tests.
On Tuesday we had a visit from a Viking, Ancient Greek and Thomas Farriner, all in the form of the incredibly talented story teller Steve Manning. He was really impressed with our children’s historical knowledge and was able to stretch their thinking and understanding of the periods of time.
Yesterday a group of children visited Okehampton Primary for the grand opening of the science lab. There were investigative activities for them to take part in, and again stretch their understanding.
It’s been great to see everyone dressed up today, a special shout out to the corgis, the glitz and glam and the parents who were face painting early this morning!
Today KS2 participated in our OCRA ‘Quad Kids’ sports event and a group of Year 5 children were also involved in a recruitment process with DMAT executive leaders.
Never a dull week here at North Tawton Primary!
This week we say farewell to Lacey Lethbridge who has been on a student placement with us. She has been reading with children across the year groups, but has spent the majority of her time supporting learning in Year 4. We all wish her all the best in her career ahead.
Tuesday 28th June 5pm – 6pm
This will be an opportunity for you to hear about our progress on our school development plans including:
I will send a questionnaire after the break so parents have the opportunity to ask questions and raise topics for the forum.
Do see Dojo for all of the events taking place over the half Term and Bank Holiday
Don’t forget to look for those corgis around North Tawton and please go and admire our bunting at the church.
