|World Book Day – Thursday 7th March 2019
Just a reminder that we are all looking forward to World Book Day next week – we’re asking all children to bring in a favourite book to show others during the day, and we’ll be kicking off with an assembly that all are welcome to at 9.15am, followed by a Book Sharing session from 9.30-10.00am in classrooms – parents and friends are invited to join that too. Only if children and parents wish, children can get dressed up as a character from their favourite book – these is no expectation that children come to school in fancy dress. If not wearing fancy dress we’re asking children to please wear school uniform (we have non-uniform days planned later in the year). The choice to dress up last year was taken up by about half of the school so please don’t feel that this is ‘a must’!
The Coffee & Cake Team of parents are making the day a special one by running a book stall on the morning and afternoon of World Book Day – weather permitting this will be in the courtyard. Contributions of books would be welcome – please bring them into classes where they will be passed on. What’s more after the morning Book Sharing session, from 10.00 – 10.30am teas and coffees will be available in EAT, just to finish off the morning. There might even be a chance to browse the book sale or share favourite reads too!
Last week, year 3/4 base 2, took part in the School Sports Partnership handball festival held at Newton Abbot College. We had a fantastic time taking part in friendly matches between lots of different primary schools. Each child demonstrated great sportsmanship and we are looking forward to developing these skills during our PE sessions at school.
“I enjoyed making new friends from other schools.”
“I like it that we played different games not just handball.”
“I liked it when I met old friends.”
“I enjoyed seeing people I know from other schools.”
On Thursday 28th February and Friday 1st March we are pleased to be welcoming back Life Education. They will be working with each class in key stage 1 and 2 delivering high quality lessons, in their mobile classroom, to improve their health and reduce the risk of drug misuse by young people. Life Education will help children to develop the ability to make positive choices about their health and their sessions are tailored to the age group that they are working with – they have served us well in the past and we look forward to working with them again.
Please find below this week’s home learning. It is due in on Monday 4th February 2019. Reading and contact books are due in every day.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.
SAFER INTERNET DAY 2019
Across the country on Tuesday 5th February schools will be celebrating Safer Internet Day – this year with the theme of ‘Together for a Better Internet’. The aim of this years activities are to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. We will be starting the day with an assembly for Years 1-6 at 9.00am, and activities will continue in classes throughout the week focussed upon exploring children’s use of the internet and how this could change to make it more safe, comfortable and effective.
We are inviting parents along to this special assembly and would also invite you to check out the ‘Keeping Children Safe Online’ link on the ‘Parents’ section of our website. Remember….www.haytorview.devon.sch.uk

A big thank you to everyone who took part in our ‘Leg it to Lapland’ challenge by walking, scooting or cycling to school for a two week period recently. A big thanks also to Sustrans for inviting us to join the challenge and for providing fantastic prizes. 16 schools took part and overall, when we calculated the average number of miles completed by each child, we finished in joint first place! Well done everyone! You all helped us win a performance by Andrei Burton, one of the world’s best trial bike riders. Check him out online! We are hoping to be able to invite parents and carers, as well as children, to Andrei’s performance in school in the new year. Watch this space…
We had an amazing time in London! The Houses of Parliament visit was brilliant and the river cruise along the Thames was sensational! Look at our photos…
