Friday 20th May 2011 Cricket Tournament The ball was bowled….what a wicket—I can tell you we had lots of them! On Wednesday, Year 5 cricket squad went to the cricket ground in Exmouth. We had our lunch when we got there and then started to practise our skills—we played a game called “Flush down the loo”! We then played our first match against Kentisbeare which we unfortunately lost but we still had a chance to reach the final so we kept our heads held high and won the rest of our matches which put us through to the final in June. Tidcombe cricket team is in the best top twelve in Devon. We all had a great day and it was a fantastic experience. Special thanks to Miss Tearle and Mr Green Reported by Ewan Fowler and Lewis Gliddon Dear Parents, Play Equipment Please bear in mind that the school’s play equipment is only supervised by school staff during school hours, 9.00am to 3.30pm. We are more than happy for the children to play for a little while before 8.50am when the school doors open, or after 3.30pm before going home. Do though bear in mind that you are responsible for your children during these times and they play, or not, according to your judgement. We may have different rules when we’re supervising but outside of school hours we trust your judgement. Mr Green’s Day Out! What a lovely time Year 4 are having in Paignton. You would be so proud to see the enthusiasm that your children have, and how well mannered and well behaved they are… an absolute credit to you. Miss Parker and I visited the children on Thursday and spent a great day at the zoo, on “the wobbly bridge” (you’ll have to ask the children about it) and rock pooling at Goodrington Sands in the afternoon with a class of happy, smiling and fascinated kids. NSPCC Sponsor Money Thank you to all of you who collected money for the NSPCC and bought it into school this week. Charlie Francis from the NSPCC will be coming back to school next Friday to collect any outstanding sponsor monies. Lost! Sam Newsome in Foundation has lost his coat which is khaki green with a grey hood and has two zips. Please return to Foundation Unit if found. Gifted and Talented Dance Workshop On Thursday, Jodie, Jude, Kayleigh, Sydney and I went to Heathcoat Primary School to take part in a dance workshop. Becky Buns was our dance teacher and she taught us a dance to “Forget You” by Cee Lo Green. It was really fun and we made loads of new friends. Overall it was a brilliant day and I hope I can do it again!
