Exeter Cathedral Trip

On Wednesday 20th May Owlacombe class went on a special trip to Exeter Cathedral to celebrate Hazel and Scarlett getting 100 books. Owlacombe went on a guided tour around the cathedral roof. We stood at the top of the tallest tower and looked over at the view. We got to see and hear the bell at 11.00am. We found out loads of interesting facts including, the roof altogether weighs 450 tons and that its insurance cost if anything went wrong is £500 million. By Charlie T.


Reception & YR1 Sports Festival

There was a fantastic range of different sports activities for the children to join in. They were in mixed groups with other schools, so made new friends and all had an enjoyable morning.

'On a glorious sunny day we went to South Dartmoor for the sports day. We played with a parachute, it was excellent'. Emily

'I jumped hurdles and also did Duck, duck, goose'. Rafe

'I saw my friends and it was really, really fun'. Gracie

We played football. I did some dribbling and I scored some goals'. Sam

YR 3 Athletics Festival

On Wednesday, Year 3 took part in an athletics festival at SDCC. They competed with a number of other local primaries in events such as javelin, relay, triple jump and hurdles. It was tiring but lots of fun! At the end, everyone took part in a mass relay race with all twenty teams competing against each other! Here is a picture of Dylan having a go at the triple jump—he was brilliant!


Athletics Club

It has been lovely to see so many children taking part in rounders and athletics clubs so far this term. 24x Y456 children have signed up for rounders (48% of KS2) and 30x Y3456 have signed up for athletics (60% of KS2), what an amazing effort! Clubs this term will be supported by our students Mr Tolley and Mr Vaughan, who will continue to run them in my absence. Thank you to all the parents who have offered their support and help, and continue to make sure our children can get to their sporting events. Mrs Young


A Boy In a Dress

On the last day of the Spring Term Owlacombe class decided to round off their ‘Extreme Earth’ topic by holding a charity football match in aid of Shelterbox.


On Wednesday 25th March 8 children from Owlacombe went to Haldon Forest to take part in the 2015 Devon School Games Go Ride event to compete against 11 other schools in the Devon County Final for cycling. The children took part in a time trial which in turn seeded them into their endurance race category where they had to race continuously for 15 minutes achieving as many laps as possible in that time. An impressive team effort was put in by all the children, who came 3rd overall receiving a bronze medal each. Another fantastic result for Team Ilsington!

Cross Country

This Monday 24 children from KS2 went to Blackpool School to take part in an Inter-Schools Cross Country competition. The children had to run around the school field as well as through the school woods, having to cope with uphill climbs and uneven surfaces. Amazing team efforts produced more impressive results for the school with the Y5/6 team coming 2nd and the Y3/4 team 3rd out of all the schools that took part. Individual bronze medals were won by May Bullous Y4 and Lottie Griffin Y6 who both came third in their races.
