Year 3/4 Base 2
On Thursday 5th December the choir sang at Tesco’s in Newton Abbot. It was a fantastic, but nervous experience singing to such a large amount of people. They all did extremely well spreading festive cheer whilst people were shopping. Members of the public commented on how amazing the choir sounded. A massive thank you also goes to parents, carers and friends who came to Tesco to support the choir in this event. May it be first of many!
It’s Christmas! – KS2 Christmas Performance 2019
This year our Christmas production is ‘It’s Christmas!’ and your child is taking part in the performance. To help us with this we would be very grateful if you could provide the following costume for your child, dependent on their character:
- Don Kee – Donkey Outfit/Onesie
- Animal 1, 2 and 3 – Animal Outfit/Onesie
- Audience – Festive Party Outfit
Please can all costumes, with clearly marked names, be in school by Monday 2nd December for our dress rehearsal. If you have any issues providing your child with a costume please see me as soon as possible.
Your child has been given song and script words (if they have a speaking part) as part of their home learning. These need to be learnt in time for our dress rehearsal. Please can you support your child in learning these.
Many thanks for your support.
On Thursday 14th November, year 3 and 4 went to Torquay Museum for a Prehistoric Day. We had lots of fun learning about different prehistoric times and dressing up in cavemen outfits.
‘I enjoyed holding the bone and making the clay pots.’
‘I learnt that the big fossil is an ammonite.’
‘I enjoyed looking at everything.’
‘I learnt that people use to have big noses to breath in cold air and made it warm.’
‘I enjoyed learning about our ancestors.’
‘I enjoyed doing observational drawing.’
On the last day of the half term, Year 3/4 Base 2 had a fantastic time at the South Dartmoor School Sports Partnership Netball Festival. We played friendly matches between lots of different schools. The children demonstrated great sportsmanship and are looking forward to developing these skills during their PE sessions at school.
“I gave everyone a hi 5 at the end of the match.”
“I enjoyed dribbling with the ball.”
“I enjoyed making friends from other schools.”
“We were doing different activities on a course; I enjoyed that.”
“I enjoyed training on the ladders and being taught by the children from Newton Abbot College.”
We all had a fantastic time at Dartmoor Zoo! We learnt a lot about the diverse world of animal habitats and how they provide homes for every living thing on earth. We touched a snake, a tortoise and even held stick insects! We saw lots of great animals including wolves, tigers and lions.
We all had a fantastic time on Wednesday afternoon taking part in our annual sports day. The children showed great enthusiasm and sportsmanship as they competed in six different challenges.
Thank you to family and friends who came to support and we hope you enjoyed your cream teas!
Friday, 28th June 2019 saw the whole Haytor View School Community come together, and share in what was an amazing day. The courtyard was packed to capacity with families chatting and laughing with each other in the glorious June sunshine. It marked the perfect start to what was a hugely enjoyable summer fete. There were activities galore such as; raffles, wet the teacher, penalty shoot outs, guess the teacher to name a few. Well done to all for making it such a memorable day.
On Friday we all had a fantastic time enjoying ‘Non-School Uniform and Crazy Hair Day’. Everyone made a fantastic effort and a massive thank you goes out to all who donated to our tombola for our summer fete on Friday 28th June.
We hope to see you there!
On Friday, 21st June, a beautifully sunny, mid summer’s day, children from year 4 participated in a Primary Olympic Event hosted by Newton Abbot College. As children piled onto the coach at Haytor View, they did so with mixture of hopes, dreams and aspirations, all while donning their new ‘Primary Olympic Event’ T-shirts – not forgetting a healthy dose of crazy hair!
Children took part in a variety of games, from UNIhock, to cycling, KWIKcricket to gymnastics, the children from Haytor View did it all. It was a joy to see such superb levels of application, effort, skill, and most of all sportsmanship on show from all participants, but it would be fair to say that Haytor View led the way in all departments. Each child played their part in making the day a huge success. Well done all involved and a huge thanks must also go to the team at Newton Abbot College for putting on such a fantastic event.
‘Focused on the target.’
Guarding the base for the team!
Teamwork in action….
Eyes on the prize!!!
When asked how it went this child replied, “A bit up and down!” 😛
“On your Marks, Get Ready, Go!!!!!!”
Haytor View worked hard as a community to complete the ‘Leg it to Lapland’ Sustrans challenge. This saw the most number of children and their parents/carers ditch the car, over two weeks, and walk, cycled or scooted to school. Out of the 30 Devon schools who participated in the challenge, Haytor View were number 1! The prize for winning the competition was a performance by Andrei Burton.
Year 3 and 4 were wowed by Andrei Burton! Andrei is one of the most established and successful professional mountain bike athletes in the UK. He has been riding trials since the age of 13 and has been competing for the last 10 years. He has been the highest placed UK rider in the UCI World rankings for several years in a row and in the top 10 in the world for the past 6 years. He has also won UK Elite championship competitions and been on the European and World podiums in BIU Competitions.
I think you can agree from the photo’s below that it was an amazing prize demonstrating that with hard work, resilience and determination demonstrated you can achieve anything!
