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

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.


Great excitement in Honeywell

This week we have started practising songs for our nativity performance ‘The Disgruntled Snowman’ auditions will be carried out next week for the main parts and the children would appreciate lots of help from people at home to help them learn their lines. I will let parents know as soon as possible about costumes. We are all looking forward to our performance on Wednesday 10th December at 2pm.



On Thursday 6th November Ilsington and Widecombe YR6 went to South Dartmoor to participate in a series of activities: Cooking, PE and DT. We started off with cooking. We had to make oat biscuits and smoothies. We used oats, sugar, flour, butter and some elbow grease!
