Handball Tournament

On Tuesday 24th February 55% of KS2 children took part in the SDLC Handball Tournament after school. The children did extremely well to play through a range of weather conditions and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The Y3/5 ‘Competitive’ team came 3rd out of 4, the Y3/4 ‘Friendly’ team came 5th out of 5, the Y56 ‘Competitive’ team came 4th out of 7 in a very strong category and the Y5/6 ‘Friendly’ team came 2nd out of 3 receiving ‘Runners up’ certificates. Congratulations to all the children that took part, and parents that helped with transport and supervision.

Ilsington Netball

Ilsington netball teams have played 3 ‘friendly’ netball matches this week. On Monday the Y4 team braved the snow and won 4-0 at ‘home’. On Thursday the Y5/6 A and B teams played ‘away’ at Chudleigh Knighton. The A team lost 5-0 and the B team lost 8-2, but as Chudleigh Knighton had come 2nd overall in last week’s tournament we were very pleased with our teams’ performances. A special mention needs to go to Sarah and Scarlett who were both voted ‘players of the match’ by the opposing teams.


Fire Safety Talk

On Friday 23rd January 2015 a man from Somerset fire station came and talked about fire safety. First he asked about what we already knew about fire safety for example how to test a smoke alarm. Then he asked us what other safety crews there were like Ambulances, Life Guards and Police. He showed us a fire safety plan using a power point and a video of how to get out of a fire. At the end Finley and Sami got dressed up in fire safety clothes. By Tasmin and Hazel YR5


Learning Habits

This year, we are having a renewed focus on learning habits i.e. how to be a better learner. This term we will be thinking about how to manage distractions in order to concentrate better, how to make effective use of the time we have for a task and how to overcome frustrations when an activity gets tricky. You will start to see posters around school and certificates awarded related to these themes. Each learning habit will have an animal allocated to it to help us all remember what it means. We will send a sheet home with these on in due course so that you can remember them too!

Tag Rugby

On Tuesday 9th December the Y3/4 Tag Rugby Team (May, Meirah, Sami, Will, Jim, Faye, Emi, Poppy and Luis) went along to Stover School to take part in the Partnership Finals having come 2nd the previous week at the Tag Rugby Tournament. They had to play 6x 10 minute matches before they got through to the play off round. They put everything into their team performances and won 4 of their matches, drew one and lost one.

Mrs Young


Mrs Young

A huge well done to Philippa Young for winning an award for Services to Sport (Education) this is a true reflection of all the hard work she puts in behind the scenes on organising all of these events for the children. We are all really proud of her

Honeywell Farm Trip

A fantastic day was had by all at Bagtor Barton. We started by stroking baby lambs and a calf and learning how their mums knew their own lamb and calf by their smell. We learnt about their food and sampled some delicious farm animal biscuits made by Mrs Retallick’s family. We enjoyed lunch watching a video of farmer Ted. The day was rounded off by a visit to the family pet—not an camel as many thought, but an alpaca. A big thank you to Mr & Mrs Retallick for sharing their farm with us and the parents who helped with transport and looking after the children.
