Summer Reading Challenge

Congratulations to the children who completed the Summer Reading Challenge at Tiverton Library this summer. I am delighted to say that of the 19 schools in the local area, Heathcoat Primary School ranked 4th in terms of the number of children completing the competition, with 38 of our children finishing. Well done to all those who took part. It’s lovely to hear that you enjoyed reading over the summer.

Heathcoat scores a win in the Year 4 football

We’re delighted that the boys and girls of HPS had a win at Tiverton Cooperative Learning Partnership football competition at Tiverton High School.

Despite the children having little training together and playing in torrential rain, this did not stop their determination to work as a team to continually fire the ball into the net.

Well down to all the Year 4 football players. Team A won and Team B were second in their pools. What a great result!!
Thank you also to Yvonne and Naomi for accompanying the children.

The Year 10s Sports Leaders did their best to collate everything in soggy conditions; thanks for everyone’s support on the day!
