“Believe, Achieve, Succeed Together”

Dear Parent/Guardian,

It seems impossible that it is nearly the end of term! As usual, the days are packed with exciting new things and yesterday the children all met their new teachers for September (except for Mr Colling’s class). All of the children seemed to be really positive about their new classrooms and the morning went really smoothly. Last night we had most of Year Two sleeping in school…not sure how much sleeping there was though! The children all had a fantastic evening and were superbly well behaved.


On Monday, we had staff from Exeter Central library visit school and talk to the children about a summer reading challenge called ‘Mischief Makers’. The children can sign up in the library in town for free and if they complete the challenge they get a gold badge and some other goodies. I have told them that if they bring their badge in to school in September, I will enter them into a prize draw for school.

Well Done

Year Three entered the Kingfisher award again this year and carried out studies on pollination and promoting habitats for bees in our school grounds. They did really well and came third! They got badges and certificates and won £25 for the school to use to promote wildlife.


We are down to three scooters being left in the shed! Please can you check whether you are missing one and take them home! We will be removing any left at the end of term. Thank you.


A plea from Mr Lawson…does anyone have any superhero costumes at home that they could lend him for the Year 6 play? I am not sure what size or what type he is after, but any would be gratefully received. If you could hand them into the office, thank you.


There will be no clubs for the rest of term. The only exception is running club as the children are training for Race for Life.  There are still some spaces if anyone would like to join the team.
