Foundation Stage Gingerbread Man Open Day
The children's learning this half term has been based on the story of The Gingerbread Man. Parents and guardians were invited to come into the classroom to engage in activities based on the story. It was an opportunity for the children to perform the story of the Gingerbread Man using their 'Talk for Writing' actions and for parents and guardians to look through the children's working together books and speak to the children's teachers.
We received some lovely comments from parents and guardians which we value very much. For photographs of the event please click here.

Sacred Heart School joins the Torbay Alpaca Trail!
We are very proud to announce our part in the Torbay Alpaca Trail this summer. Altogether 34 schools signed up to participate to promote art inTorbay. We have each decorated a life sized acrylic alpaca with a design of our own choice and we are delighted that ours will be taking pride of place in Paignton Library during the summer holidays.
The inspiration for decorating our alpaca came from our very successful Shakespeare Festival during the summer term. From the Nursery, all the way up to Year 6, our children have chosen their own favourite quotes, lines and characters from the works of William Shakespeare. Even the staff, have added their favourites too! As a tribute to Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, we have named our alpaca, Will-I-Anne.
Our aim was to show what happened in Shakespeare’s study one day when William’s manuscripts were shredded by his mischievous cat Othello, as he chased a mouse across his master’s desk! All that was left were little fragments of paper on which were written some of Shakespeare’s most famous words.
To find out more about the Torbay Alpaca Trail visit the website below or go to the alpaca Facebook page. Altogether there are 34 alpacas to find across the Bay and with each one you will find a letter. You can record the letter next to each location on the map that eventually reveals a message.
Our school would like to say a very big thank you to the staff at Paignton Library for welcoming Will-I-Anne to the children’s library for the summer holidays. While you are there, join the Summer Reading Challenge and read 6 books of any kind and win stickers, wrist bands and other goodies! Its also really good practice to keep up with your reading over the summer holidays!
