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
PARENTS CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBERS – Please can you make sure that the school office have your most recent contact numbers in the event of an emergency. Please contact the school office if you would like to check whether we have your up to date numbers or if you wish to change your contact details. Thank you!
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…
Our children have been safely using the turbo trainer today that was donated for the duration of the Lapland challenge by Sustrans. Ask your child how many miles they managed to achieve!
Please find below this week’s home learning. It is due in on Monday 26th November 2018. Reading and contact books are due in every day.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.

What a difference a month makes!
What a great day we had on Tuesday!
We traveled by coach to Newton Abbot Library and there met Gemma who gave us her time to make us feel welcome, comfortable and confident in exploring and discovering everything the library had to offer.
After learning how the library was organised we set about finding that one perfect book that was in the library just for us.
After this, we wandered up to Newton Abbot College to take part in the Unihoc festival that Mr Patchitt had organised.
Back at school, we carefully arranged all of those specially chosen books into our own class library.
We can’t wait to read them together!
If you don’t have any of the home learning activity sheets, please visit our ‘home learning copies’ tray near the door to our classroom. Home learning this week consists of:
*Maths – adding measures then some column subtraction practice
*spellings to learn
*spelling investigation – double doubles! How many can you find? eg possession
*sentences – conjunction practice – and, but, so, because, Although.
