It was great to see so many families at the workshop last Wednesday. Lots of wonderful xmas decorations were made, the creativity of everyone always amazes us and each decoration is so individual. Thank you to everyone who attended and to all the staff who helped make the workshop happen.
On Wednesday 21st November Mrs Soper and Carla Isaac took 20 Y1 children to a multi skills workshop at Tiverton high School. The children were not only exemplary with their manners and behaviour. But they also showed all their building learning powers persevering new skills taught by the young leader at THS, being reflective how they could improve their performance, collaboration working together to achieve the varied activities from throwing and shooting at a target to balancing and jumping over obstacles. The children were praised for their effort and behaviour and feedback their enjoyment and couldn’t wait to show off their new skills back at school.
On Saturday 24th November a group of children went to Wellington to take part in the Maths Challenge. Heathcoat Primary joined 44 other schools for the day of challenges, which included various activities and questions on a range of topics, including one challenge which was to guess how many sweets were in a bottle. All of the children enjoyed taking part as a group, and there was lots of fun had by all.
To raise money for Children in Need, the children all came into school dressed in spotty or yellow outfits – there were some amazing handmade tops worn on the day too. In total, we raised just over £210. Well done everyone!
We have been celebrating Anti-Bullying Week this week, taking part in a number of activities that focused on ‘choosing respect.
Just some of the things children have been doing is wearing odd socks for the day, and creating an action for ‘#chooserespect’.
Everyone did really well at taking part in all the activities, and it was great to see all the children get involved.
To celebrate Remembrance this year, all of the children made poppies to go on the display at the Pannier Market. Some of the children then attended the opening of the market, where all the poppies had been put up.
