It was lovely to get to see and speak with many of you on parents' evening this week. Thank you for all the support that you give us and your lovely children.
The year 6s really did us proud on Remembrance Day with a wonderfully confident and heartfelt performance of their poetry. The rest of the children in assembly were completely absorbed in the messages that the poetry conveyed.
A few will also be representing the school at the Chagford Remembrance Service on Sunday for which I am very grateful.
We have had a week of Histrish (their name for History and English combined) and I am now much more in the know about all the medieval monarchs. Please ask them about what they have learned.
Best wishes for a good weekend.

I had a look the children's written work today and just about had my socks blown off. The progress from September to today is astonishing and the children have made us very proud indeed. Building pride in the children's work, increasing reading and writing stamina, encouraging resilience and spending time to work on handwriting has been transformational for some of these children. We can see the results not only in English and History but in maths too. I am a proud Principal. Well done to Ms Simpson and Mrs Armstrong for this excellent work but even more WELL DONE MAPLE CLASS!
