We hope everyone had the most enjoyable half term break filled with fun.
The second half of this term is set to be busy as well-with lots of planned activities and we are looking forward to commemorating 100 years since World War 1 ended. We intend to take part in a short service at eleven o'clock on Monday the 12th of November. At the moment, the children are in the middle of painting poppies, which will be placed on the Village Green. We would like to say a special thanks to the PTFA for funding the clay poppy project and to Michael Taylor for firing the poppies in his kiln and supplying the clay materials.
Mrs Newstead is setting up a visit to Rosemoor Gardens soon. We will be taking part in a weaving and dyeing project.
The school council have been thinking about fund raising for books for our new look library- and for the Children in Need appeal.
Please contact Mrs Gleed if you have any ideas or even skills to share.

We have an new exciting term ahead with lots of planned learning activities and some changes and at this point we would warmly welcome our new head teacher Mrs Ruh Alford.
This term, we will be covering the topic of the Victorians and there will be some links to a local study of Ashwater and a celebration of the events that took place during WW1 as it will be a centenary. If you have any interesting Victorian objects or artefacts, or information about Ashwater to share-please let Mrs Gleed know.
A new current timetable will be on the curriculum area web site, as well as the learning map for this terms and future terms work; so that you can support your child at home with research and home projects.
We will be looking forward to seeing everyone soon.
If you have any spare time to support the class with reading or art please let Mrs Gleed know.

Recently, Ashwater juniors had a great opportunity and experience using equipment loaned by the Bideford Museum. The materials were donated by lottery funding.
The children used various components which enabled and allowed the children to make models with wood and card. Mechanical machinery, was part of another fun activity.
The children went on to write reviews and evaluations about the Engineering boxes.
