Year 3/4 Base 2


Dartmoor Zoo

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.



Summer Sports Day!

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!

Haytor View Family Picnic and Summer Fete

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.

Non-School Uniform and Crazy Hair 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!


Year 4 Primary Olympic Event at Newton Abbot College

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!!!

Lunchtime Funtime

When asked how it went this child replied, “A bit up and down!” 😛

“On your Marks, Get Ready, Go!!!!!!”


Hard work and determination = Andrei Burton!

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!


Virtual Reality

On Wednesday 22nd May we experienced a virtual reality session.  We went to Eygpt and looked inside a pryamid.  We saw different artifacts and created our own virtual reality characters.

“I liked seeing the mummy’s popping out of coffins.”

“I liked finding the objects.”

“I enjoyed moving around the tomb.”

“I enjoyed designing our own VR characters.”

“I didn’t like the music.  It was creepy.”

“It felt like you were there.”

“I liked it when the mummy chased me.”

“I liked that the robot talked to me.”


Spring into Action!

On Thursday 2nd May our year 3 and 4 children hosted a fundraising event to raise money to support our class trips and buy great resources!  The children spent all afternoon participating in different sporting activities – nonstop! The children were vigorously exercising to complete continuous skipping, hopscotch and shuttle runs to name a few! Asda, in Newton Abbot, kindly sponsored refreshments to keep everyone hydrated and fit for action!

Year 3 and 4 would like to say a big thank you to everyone who made their fundraising afternoon a huge success.  Please could we endeavor to have any sponsorship money in by Monday 13th May.  Thank you very much for your support and fundraising efforts.
