Avon (Year 4)
This week saw the long-awaited performance from ‘Wicked Wilcombe’, the newest trombone band in town! They performed in front of the Year 3 children and members of their families, an audience of more than 60 people. Their skill in learning the basics of music reading and trombone skills were matched only by their wonderful energy levels during the concert. Everybody beamed with pride!
As the final part of a week of sporting activity, Avon class walked down to Blundells to play hockey. The girls played with wonderful determination and a positive attitude against opponents with much more experience. Year 4 had never played hockey before and will improve vastly with a little practice.
Continuing the sporting theme, Avon class competed against local teams in netball at Tiverton High School. Despite not having played netball yet this year in class, they used the transferable skills learnt in handball to great success. Both teams played with aptitude and spirit, with the A team winning the competiton between seven sides.
Exeter Chiefs come to School!!!
Avon Class and Wilcombe Primary School were privileged to be chosen to take a central role in a partnership between The Greggs Foundation and The Rugby Premiership in their mission to tackle childhood obesity.
The children had to select the ingredients to make a healthy sandwich, judged by Exeter Chiefs players, including star winger Olly Woodburn. The lucky winners received tickets to the Premiership Final at Twickenham, with possible further exciting news imminent. Then, the class had the honour of some rugby training with the Chiefs players.
The children will receive further tuition in tag rugby in November. What an amazing day for us all!
Celebrating Our Friends!
As part of a team building process and encouraging children to celebrate each other, Avon class wrote positive feelings that they had for their peers onto sheets of paper attached to their backs. They loved hearing how they were valued by other members of the class.
