"To create a secure, happy learning environment where children are nurtured and inspired to become life-long learners"


'Peeling, grating, chopping, snipping and lots of tasting!! Just some of the activities Honeywell have enjoyed whilst preparing coleslaw, cous cous and last week fruit kebabs. This week we have described the taste of 6 different types of apple including a Bramley cooking apple which resulted in some wonderful facial expressions and fantastic adjectives.

'I like the taste of the pineapple, its sweet' Rowan

'It's a bit sour this grape' Maddie

'The strawberries are seedy' Jacob

Dartmoor 3 Ball

On 2nd July Owlacombe and Middlecott went to a Dartmoor 3 Ball Tournament. When we got there we got separated into 4 teams. There was an A team and  a B team for each class. We got to play lots of games and we all did super well! Well done to Middlecott A team for coming 2nd and Owlacombe A team for coming 3rd. Thank you to everyone for helping with this event.   By Sam W YR 6. Thank you to all the parents who provided transport and supported the teams.


Rounders Tournament

On the 17th of June Year 5/6 went to a rounders tournament. We sent two  teams: an A team and a B team. We played six matches all together and overall the B team came fifth. The A team came fourth out of ten. We all had a mega time.! By Owlacombe class.



On Tuesday Middlecott went down to the tennis courts to play tennis. We got taught by Ryan (Bovey Tennis Club coach) and this week we got the nets out and practiced with our hands, first throwing the ball over the net and letting it bounce once, then the other person catches it. We then did the same one person would throw you the ball and the other person would hit it! It was really fun. By Faye Kinsella YR 3

On Wednesday 11th June 2014 Demelza a lady from Newton Abbot recycling centre, came in to talk to Owlacombe class about Recycling and carry out a waste audit. We learnt lots of interesting facts like...over 2 billion nappies go to the landfill site every day in the UK, and they take over 250 years to rot away. We hope to get much better at recycling waste in our school now. by Megan, Tabby & Ruby.
